lizardek's obiter dictum lizardek Home Now Then Friends Info Ek Family
zird is the word [userpic]
I've never really paid that much attention to the mentions of PCOS I've heard some friends talking about, as it was always tied to infertility, and since I have 2 healthy children and had no problem getting pregnant, I never looked it up to see what it was. After reading about thesidhe's experiences today, I had a DOH moment, and think I'm going to have to inquire further about some suspicions that have suddenly been raised.

We had no plans tonight, or rather the ones we did have were cancelled, which equals out to the same thing. I have things I need to do, including finishing the AWC newsletter, designing a program for our spring concert and what was that other thing? Oh yes, vacuuming. Is it bad when you can't remember the last time you vacuumed? It's bad when the dust bunnies start lining up and marching in rows. If they achieve world domination, you'll know who to blame.

Anway, none of them got done. I didn't even have to cook dinner since Anders was hankering for Chinese. We had a discussion at the dinner table about whether Chinese families come home from work on Friday evenings and say to each other: "You know what, Ling? I don't feel like cooking. Let's order take-out Swedish." and then they go out and fetch boxes of meatballs and herring to go and bring them home to enjoy. Hee!

practically the whole damn list. :O

Yup, I have like all but two of the symptoms (my cycles are regular and my triglycerides are not abnormally high) but everything else? I have. Short of looking for the cysts there's no way to be certain (in my case) and either way, it wouldn't change my doctor's diagnosis and treatment.

I don't know if I'm infertile as I have either avoided trying to get pregnant or the possibility of doing so was non-existent.

Heh, that letters thing is funny. It took me about half a minute to figure out other people were actually moving the letters.

I think that most people have that attitude towards PCOS. I don't think I'd ever really heard of it until I found out that I had it. Historically, it's been treated as a bit of non-syndrome, a symptom of being overweight, if you will, when the truth is that the extra weight (which not everyone has, either) is much more a side effect of the syndrome than vice versa. But the medical attitudes towards it have meant that women didn't like to talk about it to other people about it because the symptoms are all erosions of their femininity, and therefore, not many people know much about it unless they have it. At least, that's my take on it.. could be wrong. I feel very lucky that I don't have too many of the classic visible symptoms, and when I'm on the pill I don't really have any trouble at all with it. You should definitely have the bloodwork done if you're wondering.. it's always nice to know what's going on with your body. :)

That's what I think, too. It's a good thing to KNOW. I have already been tested for thyroid and it's normal.

Yeah, I've heard that PCOS is a a disease of symptoms. I think I read the comparison once that saying PCOS is an infertility disease is like saying diabetes is a circulation disease. Hope you don't have it! It's cleaning day around here too. Die dust bunnies, die!

Bwah-ha-ha ... take-out-Swedish, meatballs and herring ... you kill me! LOL!

What a perfect quote for a sig file... *g*
