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.

YES! Congratulations, RAWberry! :) It seems like we are progressing as a group! I got my period March 15, too. We got out period the same day, that is awesome.

I can't wait for all of us to get our periods (haha, I know other ladies who regularly get their period would be so confused when reading this statement. Most women abhor their period, and here we are celebrating that we are getting them!)

Comment by RAWberry on March 22, 2012 at 4:04pm

Guess what ladies!!! I got my period on March 15th :)

Well, only one way to find out! I am going to be the guinea pig and experiment with extra iodine consumption and see if I can get Lugol's. B12 has helped, D3 has helped, now it's time to test the iodine/iodide. In the meantime, before I purchase Lugol's, I am going to add in kelp granules, dulse flakes, etc, and reduce, and if possible eliminate, foods with goitrogens (broccoli, cauliflower, cruciferous, etc.) Doesn't hurt to try! http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=47 And in terms of meds, no way! Wouldn't do that. I am so anti-medication, unless it's a life-or-death situation. I know for sure my thyroid is off, which is why I am going to experiment with more iodine and Lugol''s. I would, of course, advise others to check how their thyroid's doing.

P.S. There's been many conversations on this forum of iodine supplementation, most especially Lugol's. Check 'em out.

Hi all. I ought to say hi. I had multicystic ovarian syndrome, a closely-related syndrome that is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood as the more common PCOS. With this in mind, I thought I ought to repeat my experiences here. They can also be found here: http://www.inspirawtion.com/Rose-Newell.html

When I was 20 I "had to" have an operation to remove an orange-sized cyst on my ovary resulting from a very rare, little-known and under-acknowledged condition connected with excessive oestrogen, known as "multicystic ovarian syndrome" (MCOS) - commonly confused with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), which also results in cysts.

I have heard of other women finding their PCOS, which is connected with excessive testosterone and additional symptoms include low fertility, weight gain and excessive hair growth, has been cured by the High Carb Raw Vegan diet.

My condition, whilst similar on the cysts and weight gain, differs in that my cysts would always be blood-filled, I am "hyper-fertile", have less body hair, but I have suffered from terrible mood swings. On a high carb raw vegan diet, these symptoms have completely disappeared.

When I was 15 and vegetarian, my periods were incredibly painful and would last up to 10 days, as a vegan they went on 6-8 days, and now they are usually over in 1 and a half days and pain-free.

Hi everyone~

I wanted to introduce myself. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 5 years ago when I was trying to get pregnant with my first son. I ended up getting a second opinion from an endocronologist who did not think I had PCOS, but an overactive adrenal gland which was causing my androgen level to be too high.

I thought I would join this group anyway, since I still have some of the same symptoms as someone with PCOS (thinning hair, increased facial hair, oily skin, infrequent and irregular periods, no ovulation, etc.) I am also tired most of the time, which I think must be because of the problem with the adrenals.

After the initial diagnosis I went raw vegan for about 6 months. I had great results. All of my symptoms went away, except ovulation didn't return. I ended up falling of the wagon but I am looking forward to trying again and feeling like I did when I was raw. This is my first time trying a low fat raw vegan diet, as before when I was raw I ended up falling back on a lot of fats and eventually back to a cooked vegetarian diet. Hoping that a low fat raw vegan diet will help me sustain a raw diet and reclaim my health!

One more thing, although this isn't advocated here, I drank a lot fresh squeezed juices made of beet, carrot, celery, etc (add your favorite fruits), and have recently stopped. I have heard that beets (juice) help with periods... not sure what they contain. I am curious to see if drinking them again will result in a period.....
