  • There's a PCOS group here on CM. There's many symptoms, it just means your ovaries have many cysts, which create problems with your hormones. It's treated based on the actual symptoms you have.

  • One of the best things you can do to help deal with many of the symptoms is to switch to a low-carb diet ... did wonders for me and I've never had to take any medications (I don't believe in meds).
