So I got a copper iud and came off microgynon last October time. Periods returned, not heavy like I'd been "scared" into thinking light, very light. I also don't get period pain or suffer with bad cramps.

So upon stopping the pill I've gained weight a shit tonne for no real reason (from size 10 - 12/14), hair & face greasier and I now seem to have excess body hair below my belly button (grim). Then from about Feb - 2 weeks ago I bled continously, and now I'm bleeding again joy! my Dr has taken bloods and suspects PCOS and I have to go for a scan.

I've been on a low carb diet since Jan and I'm barely losing weight, is this typical of PCOS, anyone else been through similar, I've depressed myself by reading stuff online. Am I just going to have to accept I'm fat, hairy and always bleeding now or is there hope? sad
