Surprise! You can obviously tell by the title of this that, yes, I’m pregnant! I’ve finally let the cat out of the bag. Like many of you though, I was told when I was diagnosed with PCOS that: it’d be virtually impossible for me to conceive naturally that fertility treatment was my only hope of getting pregnant and that I should start trying now if…

Do you notice when PCOS is talked about, often there’s a lot of focus on the physical burdens of PCOS? While these are absolutely awful to deal with (I’ve been there!), there’s also so much that people don’t see. That’s the thing that can make PCOS so isolating. People can see the weight gain but no one sees the countless doctors appointments where…
 
Ever heard someone say the following... “My PCOS got so bad, a cyst burst! I had to go to the ER” “PCOS is so painful, when I do get my periods, they’re so bad” “My doctor/OBGYN/specialist said my ovaries had cysts but I don’t have any PCOS, I guess I just have a mild form?” … or something similar? Did you know that PCOS, ovarian cysts and cystic o…
 
Are you trying to get pregnant with PCOS at the moment, but struggling? If so, keep on reading. You’ve likely been told by your doctor that you ‘just need to lose some weight and try for at least a year to 18 months before coming back’. There’s a lot of emphasis in PCOS on losing weight to get pregnant. Sure, losing a little weight won’t do you any…
 
If you’ve been anywhere near the news or social media, you’ve probably heard about what’s going on in with the law changes in Texas (which in my personal opinion is absolutely despicable), making it illegal to get an abortion after 6 weeks. Given this, I thought it was timely to chat about Emergency contraception. Most people even going through fer…
 
Are you one of the 25% of people with PCOS that has a thyroid condition? Thyroid conditions are actually one of the most common ‘hidden’ causes of PCOS - hypothyroidism being the most common, although it often goes undiagnosed. If you struggle with hair loss, a sluggish metabolism, low moods and depression, fatigue, muscle weakness, difficulty regu…
 
Are you dealing with PCOS symptoms that you’ve been told are normal? And it’s only recently that you’ve questioned those symptoms after doing your own research? Maybe your acne was put down to puberty when you saw your doctor in high school about it but all these years later you’re still not getting anywhere. Or maybe you’ve never had a regular per…

What do you find the hardest about tweaking your lifestyle to best suit your PCOS? Maybe keeping the lifestyle changes up when you’re stressed is really difficult for you or you struggle to get back into routine after ‘breaking your changes’. Or maybe you have a hard time with creating balance rather than being all or nothing. Maybe you just feel g…
 
You’ve likely heard one of the key symptoms of PCOS is weight gain. But what if you don’t have weight gain with your PCOS? I’d be a millionaire if I had a dollar for every time someone with lean PCOS told me their doctor or specialist said they ‘don’t look like they have PCOS’ because they aren’t overweight. The really frustrating thing is that PCO…
 
Struggling with trying to not be a perfectionist when it comes to lifestyle changes? Finding it hard to stick to changes because those around you aren’t living as healthily? Not seeing results and it’s demotivating you? Change is damn hard. Whether you’ve been working on your PCOS for a couple of months or a few decades, switching up your lifestyle…
 
Regardless of when you’ve been diagnosed with PCOS, you’ve likely been dealing with the symptoms for a while. You feel like you’ve tried everything and your hope of getting on top of your symptoms is dwindling because you’ve exhausted all of your options. No one else seems to be dealing with these symptoms (or not to the extent that you are) but no…
 
Feeling really fatigued, low on energy, cold and sore on top of all of the other PCOS symptoms you're experiencing? Sometimes these symptoms could be to do with your thyroid or other health complications but one of the most common causes I see of this in PCOS is iron levels! Iron is one of the minerals in the body you’ve definitely heard of, especi…
 
Ever gone from happy to uncontrollable crying, moodiness and extremely irritable only to find that your period shows up a few days later?

None of them had PCOS but all of them had PMS symptoms that were seriously affecting their work…
 
When were you diagnosed with PCOS? Was it a few months ago? A couple of years ago? Two decades ago? Regardless of your age when you were diagnosed with PCOS, the whole situation was probably all a bit confusing. Questions, blood tests, maybe ultrasounds, explaining your symptoms a million times, hearing ‘mild’ or ‘severe’ PCOS thrown around, you he…
 
Whether you were diagnosed with PCOS yesterday or 10 years ago, figuring out what works for managing your symptoms can be a relentless battle. It’s like moving in quicksand. No matter how much you do, you seem to get nowhere. If anything, your symptoms seem to get worse. You’re tired (in a literal and emotional sense), you can’t seem to manage your…
