It has a huge range of how it can affect you and your life. For me - infertility, but yes I have two wonderful blessings, abnormal hair growth, irregular menstrual cycle, adult acne, weight issues.
Without prayer, faith and God creating scientists, my little blessings would not be here. I am blessed that the medications worked for me (with Kaitlyn) and they might have kept me "normal" for 2 ish years and that is why we were blessed with Alex. I truly believe Alex was the result of prayer. I prayed and prayed that I wanted a baby without needing medical intervention to conceive.
I know that not everyone is this lucky. And I truly feel blessed to have them.
Well, after Alex was born I had a cycle around 6 weeks and things were pretty much normal. Until February. That was my last cycle, until this week. When the cycle hits, they are always so heavy. I am so tired because the flow is just that heavy. The emotions that come with it - ugh, I am so crabby, every little thing gets to me.
It does not help that I am exhausted from the little ones.
So I am choosing to look at this syndrome positively. I am blessed to have normal insulin levels so my weight issues are probably not necessarily related, except that it makes me gain easier. Sure, I will never be able to monthly say, okay we are not expecting another baby. But, I also do not have to put up with the emotional roller coaster of this cycle monthly. I don't think I could do it.
I even said to Keith last night, "Aren't you glad we don't have to deal with this monthly? Cause man, this would suck! I hate being this b****y." He wholeheartedly agreed. I wonder if it wouldn't be so bad, maybe this is 6 months of stored up stuff. Hmmm...
Non- PCOS how do you do it?
