Pcos?

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

Have you been counting calories as well as cutting carbs? Might be worth a try, I use the my fitness pal app
