I have PCOS and would like to know whether ovarian drilling is recommended and if anyone has been successful in ovulating? I have not had a period for 12 years and fed up with UK doctors and consultants as they simply don’t do anything!
I was referred to an Endocrinologist and prescribed medroxyprogesterone to induce bleeding as i need to bleed at least 4 times a year or at risk of developing ovarian cancer! However this did not work and they have done nothing else.
I had a scan a few years ago and it showed i had a fibroid-benign tumour.
I was also prescribed Metformin 850mg x3 per day, however i have never taken this as i know what some of these medicines can do and side affects at a later stage.
I desperately want to be a mum and have my own baby however given up all hope now.
I gained an excessive amount of weight in the last 12 years and now weigh 128kg!!!!
I have all the usual symptoms, excessive facial hair, hairloss, patches and severe depression and anxiety.
It is easy for everyone to say lose weight and stop sugar and go on a diet.
I feel suicidal most of the time and really have given up all hope and would like to hear from you if you have tried ovarian drilling or any other treatment ie ayurveda, liposuction,weight loss meds anything?
I dont want to develop diabetes as i know i eventually will as i do have a lot of sugar in my tea and coffee.
I also have vitamin d deficiency mainly because i cover myself up and do not get any sun in my body which causes me to always have joint pains and cramps.
I also have swelling in my ankles and possible arthritis in my hands and legs.
I am planning a trip to kerala and would be so grateful if anyone would recommend any treatment or options available to me.
