Re: PCOS and bariatric surgery

Not necessarily, as the underlying metabolic cause (the ovarian resistance) is still there. HOWEVER you have done amazingly well in getting the weight down and this will improve your periods somewhat, and put you in a vastly improved position in terms of fertility. Regular periods require regular ov...

Re: Recovery post D and C

Hi - it's probably not right to ask on the internet but it depends on your age - and the reason for the 'd&c' I presume they did a hysteroscopy as well? Are you still having regular periods - if they also changed the pain could be due to Asherman's syndrome, where the womb lining has become scar...

Re: Chocolate Cysts

Hi MCC - what an ordeal and to loose an ovary to endometriosis too! Firstly, any hormonal treatment wears off after you stop taking it. I would advise the combined pill (maybe 3 packs run together) to keep the endometriosis suppressed (provided you have no problems with the pill), and I would only p...
