    How To Control Hair Loss Due To PCOS

    PCOS can be detrimental to a woman’s self esteem. There is no denying that a condition which can hardly be managed, even after devouring pills after pills, lands you in such a position that escape seems impossible. I have been through this (and going through it) and I understand the kind of frustrations that it could bring. The most destructive symptom of PCOS is hair fall. It is rampant, no shampoos can help it and it doesn’t stop no matter what you do. This happens when you are handling this condition the common way. Here is one answer that could help you get better hair. A user asked: How do…

    Periods, Mothafu****

    So what is the biggest, biggest problem with PCOS? Periods. Yeah! Aunt Flo is always angry when you have PCOS. For some women, she is hyperactive and for the rest… she prefers not to visit them often. Who am I? I used to be the one who was visited by her for 3 days in a 28 day cycle. She did not bother me a bit and went as easily as she came. Everything was cool. Now, we have developed a love-hate relationship. She visits less often and makes sure that she gives me some real painful and irritating time all the while. So without going into further details, let…

    PCOS Hair Loss- Eliminating Loss

    There is no doubt that PCOS makes your hair become frizzy and more prone to breaking. A lot of women simply start losing all their hair. Everytime they comb their hair, they find hundreds of innocent strands that were uprooted from the scalp without much ado. I have faced the same problem. While the hair is growing gracefully and not showing a sign of lack of strength, it is the hair on your scalp that faces one issue after the other. When you have an enviable mane, it feels quite inadequate to find that you are left with merely a third of what you used to have a year ago.…

    From 96 to 82- A PCOS Weight Loss Story

    There is probably nothing that can make a woman so miserable in the society than being called ‘fat and ugly’. Of course, they would not dare to call this to my face, but they would certainly speak this behind my back. It looks like nothing I have done, achieved and won makes any sense unless I am slim. Why? I do not understand. I never intended to lose weight. I have always been the chubbiest in my circle. Short and chubby… yeah! That is how you define me. They wanted me to do what they wanted- drink green tea thrice a day, exercise in the gym for hours and look…

    PCOS- Stress and Distress 5

    In the middle of discussing the symptoms of PCOS, here i am with something that does not really deal with a symptom. It deals with the results of these symptoms. The trauma of not being able to define a persona and the emotional wrath that PCOS associates itself with. It is very hard at times not to confirm to the beauty ideals of the society. Yeah you try to feel confident and tell yourself that you are great, but for how long? One day, probably in the middle of your cycle when PMS is more than ready to set in, you suddenly want to look at yourself in the mirror…

    PCOS- Stress and Distress 4

    Cushing’s Syndrome Do you identify with being a moon face? Is your face unusually round? Do you have pink or purple stretch marks on your body? Chances are high that you are suffering from Cushing’s Syndrome. This condition is not uncommon with women suffering from PCOS. As PCOS is also an Endocrinol disorder to an extent, they may be related to each other. Most of the times, the pituitary gland releases too much hormone ACTH. This in turn, signals the adrenal gland to produce more cortisol hormone, the primary reason for Cushing’s Syndrome. If the adrenal glands keep producing cortisol for a long period of time, then this unusual condition may appear in patients. Most of the times…

    PCOS- Stress and Distress 3

    Inability to loose weight despite following several diets and exercise routines This is the second symptom of PCOS and probably the most talked about. The first two symptoms, weight gain and inability to lose weight, are closely related and can run havoc in your life if not checked. If you are suffering from PCOS, it is quite possible that you have searched the internet for all types of fad diets and exercise routines that never work for you. Why do i say so? Well they never worked for me as well. My doctor even prescribed a weight loss pill, that made me eat like… well it made me eat like…
