I haven't been tested but my doc told me it was a very likely possibility. I have noticed that I have lost lots of body hair, and when I asked about it he said that he was pretty confident it was PCOS. I have one cousin who had it, my mom had a retroverted uterus and so do I. Doc told me probably 20 years ago that it would be very hard for me to become pregnant. I never did, so I guess he was right. Too old to start now!!

I don't have diabetes, but I do have PCOS and have had it for a long time untreated because the doctors always said "well it's ok to skip periods." Well now I am trying to conceive and it is gonna be an uphill battle. I am 30 this year and I just hope that I didn't wait to long. I am now seeing a endo dr. in charlotte and he is great. They are going to put me on diabetic meds because I can't lose any weight. Is there anyone who can help me figure out how many carbs, sugars, acids, starches and fats I should eat in each meal. I'm scared.

I have type 2 diabetes, PCOS, and endometriosis. How long have you known about all of your conditions?

I might be asking a silly question here. If you dont ask once in a while, then how are you giong to know anything? I don't know what POCS and TTC is ?
So if anyone out there can teach me then that would be awesome.
Thank you

Hi 5th…
Not sure what TTC is but PCOS is PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome. Its where your body tries to ovulate, but your ovaries (due to insulin resistantance) have become thicken and the egg cannot "pop" through the surface of the ovary. Therefore, it forms a fluid filled cyst. Here is an excellent website that can give youmore info. Hope this didn't embarrass you. btw…i like your name!

PCOS and diabetes are very strongly linked, so much so that PCOS is considered a big risk factor for diabetes and large percentage of people with PCOS eventually end up with diabetes.

Hey Becca!

I am not sure what ttc is. I do have pco. In fact I had it long before I was ever diagnosised with type 2 diabetes. I also have hypothryiod as well.

I have hypothyroid also and from that I too fell into this type2 diabetes nightmare!
