    Does anyone have this? I was diagnosed in September. The doctor has me on Metformin. I would LOVE to not take prescription drugs for the rest of my life...

    losing fat and balancing the estrogen/progesterone ratios

    lower carb approach tends to be better for someone with PCOS.

    I agree. Plan your diet. For women with PCOS, foods rich in fiber are suggested for better digestion,. Avoid carbs and sweets and have lots of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, and whole grains. It also limits foods that are high in saturated fat, such as meats, cheeses, and fried foods.

    I also have PCOS - have been on a prescription contraceptive pill since 1999 to "help with the symptoms".

    I am currently losing weight through diet (mostly unprocessed foods, no added sugar - just fruit 2x per day; good amount of lean protein and veges, but probably low calorie) and I hope that once I hit my goal weight (3-6kg away) and maintain for a bit, I can go off the pill and see how my body actually operates normally. I will also be asking to have another ultrasound to see how many cysts I have these days, and the blood tests again to see if my hormone levels are more normal once I have reached a normal weight.
