Last week I posted that I missed my cycle now for 70 days or more. Last cycle started 11/27 ended 12/6. Had Dr. appt. and ultrasound. Thyroid testing was normal, pg test negative. Ultrasound showed cysts in both ovaries. Dr. diagnosed yesterday with PCOS... I was given progesterone (sp?) to shed my lining. Dr. hopes this will resume my cycles? If not I will be put on more meds.
So my questions are: 1)What does progesterone do for cysts? a)Does it minimize them so that you can ovulate/have a period? b)Or is it just for the lining?
2) Are there any natural remedies to minimize ovarian cysts?
3) Reading TCOYF - it sounds like weight loss may help. If PCOS is something that people have a hard time breaking down sugars - (which sugar is in a lot of foods) Has anyone adjusted their diet/exercise routine and if so what are you doing? (I eat fairly healthy, workout 3x weekly - but PCOS fits because I have extra weight around my lower stomach that does not go away and acne on my back).
I'm just trying to absorb all this... Any ideas would be appreciated!
