How old where you when you found out?
What are some ways that you cope with some of the symptoms (mainly painful cysts)?

I was 16. I haven't had any real painful cysts since before i got pregnant in may 2011. Mainly heating pads when it got too severe.

Thanks, my daughter was just diagnosed last evening by an ER doctor. We are making a follow-up appointment for her with our family doctor, but she was in so much pain she was vomiting and could barely walk.

Hopefully it will pop soon for her. This is how I got my relief. There is alot to PCOS. Here is a FB group I am apart of. There are women of all ages and places, so asking there may get you a better response for how to help her.

Quoting Just Ames:" Are hormonal pills out of the question? That is really the only way to deal with this and make it go away."


Nope, not out of the question at all.



Our family doctor was planning on prescribing them to her in September anyway when she went in for her annual. She is almost 17 and has only had 6 or 7 periods so far.

Well usually it doesn't help with cysts that are already there. But it helps prevent them.

Also don't get mad at me for asking this but is she over weight? PCOSers are overweight majority of the time. I have found when i can keep my weight under control I have less symptoms.

No! Not mad about that at all! After doing research, I see that is definitely something that is of concern. She does have some excess hair, really hairy arms and her leg hair grows in very fast.



She was overweight until last summer, she ended up sailing for 6 weeks and lost a lot of weight and built quite a bit of muscle. After that, she ended up with 3-4 periods in a row, so I assumed the issue was fixing itself.

Yeah sounds like the doctors diagnosed her right! It gets very tough and exercise helps alot. I never had the irregular periods but I have lots of the other symptoms! Maintaining a healthy weight does a lot for it! I haven't been able to do that in a few years, and once I spit this baby I out I fully intend to kick my butt back into shape!



Until you can get her into a follow up I suggest warm baths, laying on heating pads and Tylenol. Also if she complains that she just got a sharp shooting pain and it felt like a "pop" inside of her, it's probably the cyst bursting. I have had that happen a few times and my mom look at me like I was nuts but it was the most painful/relieving feeling in the world!

Thank you so much for all this information.



I hate seeing her in so much pain, but it's nice to know that there is a bit of hope.
