I'd have a hormone related question, I just got my blood test results back and my sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) is super elevated, with 280 nmol/l when it should be somewhere between 20-140 nmol/l in women my age. I am guessing this is due to the crazy contraceptive pills I'm taking, and if I don't want deep-vein trombosis anytime soon I should probably change to something else.

Does anyone know any supplements I could take for lowering SHBG? I was reading about stinging nettle root extract that some people have used, but I'm just wondering (not an expert at all when it comes to biochemistry and that) if I lower SHBG then would I have MORE free testosterone and that would be bad for my existing hair-loss problems? I have also been taking DIM but apparently that is not good because it might screw up the estrogen/testosterone balance even more. If there's anyone who's educated about hormones, I would be very thankful for any advice! Have a great day!

Welcome, Shery :)

That might also be the case, Good point :)

Comment by L on May 27, 2012 at 5:11am

Didn't she delete her profile? That could also be the cause of the removal. I am not saying that the post didn't get removed but it may have disappeared along with her profile.

Comment by Janneke on May 27, 2012 at 3:31am

Her post got removed, which I already expected would happen, since it wasn't in agreement with 30BAD. That's why I saved the email, just incase. If you don't have it anymore, let me know.

So happy I found this group, and all the info linked to! Hey guys :)

Comment by partakati on May 9, 2012 at 8:35pm

Hey everyone, I am new to 30BaD and I actually joined this website to be able to join this group. I've been diagnosed with PCOS from ultrasound with 12 cysts instead of the normal 4-5 and also from blood work. The condition arose when I tried to quit my birth control pills January 2011, wanting to be more natural and get rid of the mood swings pills cause. After quitting I was feeling great, but a couple of months later I started to notice that my hair had gotten half thinner and my face begun to fill up with acne (I was put on birth control when I was 16 due to acne. Now thinking, I had all the signs of PCOS back then, excess facial hair, thinning hair, acne, sudden weight gain but of course doctors think all girls should be put on birth control without actually diagnosing them..)


I saw a gynecologist who diagnosed me and said I need to go back on birth control, so I did. Hair stopped falling out and my face cleared up, but I really do not want to be on birth control anymore. However, I'm way too scared to stop because I already have scalp showing through my hair if I don't blow dry and use products, which is devastating for me. About 3 months ago I made an appointment with a woman who is specialized in womens hair loss and alopecia, and she sold me a bunch of expensive products to help re-grow my hair. I've been using them and I can see some new growth but I don't know whether it is due to the products, birth control or something else.


Well anyways, sorry for the long post, I just thought to share my story and maybe someone has similar experiences or helpful advice! I am glad to hear that people on this group are having their periods without the help of medication, it gives me a lot of hope!

Hi all, just discovered this group and am happy to see it here. I was PCOS "diagnosed" after having a 9 cm cyst removed from an ovary about two years ago.

Ugh. I'm currently having my period (REALLY heavily and uncomfortably, pain and swelling in the ovary that gets the cysts) for the second time in a month. I typically don't get it at all since going hcrv, but have had a bit more fat in my diet in the past couple of months than usual. I tend to find that there is a direct link between my symptoms and how much fat I consume. I hadn't had my period in about six months until recently (though I do still ovulate) but am happy not to; I hope to "lose" my period again in the future if it's really as healthful as general consensus here makes it out to be.

For the past week my skin has been quite fine (aside from purple scarring) for the first time in sixish months, during which I've had horrendous cystic acne that I can do nothing about. I'd chalked it up to detox but am now thinking it has more to do with hormonal issues. In other words, I'm not sure what's going on... awful period for the second time in a month, good skin, middling/high fat.

I'm giving up overts for a while and hope this will mean my improved skin continues? I will go to the doctor to be sure I don't have a significant cyst but don't want any of their intervention otherwise.
