Dr. Owen :
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Dr. Owen : Are you possibly pregnant?
Customer: My husband and I have been trying for months now but was told it might be impossible because of the pcos...but what if I just ovulated a few weeks ago.. why would I still be sick?
Customer: Wouldn't it be too soon to tell?
Customer: And why would I have been sick all these weeks..could the pain I had not been ovulation but beginning pregnancy? ??
Customer: I took a 2 test Oct 1st it showed neg in the test part but nothing in the control window?

Ask Your Own Health Question

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
I've worked on losing weight for years I've been diagnosed with pcos for years now...in the past 3 months I've dropped 17 months ...my weight is one of the reasons I was diagnosed with pcos because I use to be 140 lbs and started gaining and wouldn't stop...
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
17 pounds sorry
Have you seen a nutritionist for this?
I am concerned for you because of this weight -
Have you been evaluated for low thyroid?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
I have hypothyroid along with other health problems ..
What are you taking for your hypothyroid?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
Synthroid 75 mcg I also have supreventricular tachycardia had it all my life and IC interstitial cystitis had it for years...I have perfect cholesterol levels and don't have high blood pressure ...
What do you do for exercise -?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
I walk and ridea bike at least 3 miles5x a week
How about your diet - how many calories are you eating per day - ?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
My limit intake is 1700 I monitor it but I often eat less..
with this diet, exercise, and thyroid treatment, you are still gaining weight?
Have you had your adrenal glands checked?
Do you have diabetes by any chance?
Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
I lose weight then gain some over and over...I've had everything checked they found nothing else..
You should consider getting one on one help from a nutritionist and also eating is important -you do not want to eat too little as this can be just as much of a problem as eating too much.
As for exercise - you need to get this more involved and actually sweat - walking and biking for just 3 miles is not going to break much of a sweat -
You need to really work out hard so that you are working out for 60 minutes 5 times per week and sweating hard - that way you will burn true calories.

And, if you say all testing is normal - then this comes down to exercise and diet.
And you ask what do you do - in your question??? - you need to lose weight and this will improve just about everything.

I hope this helps

You didn't address my original questions all u wanted to do was talk about my weight!
The reason for your ovaries and breasts being sore are due to the fact you do have PCOS - polycystic ovarian syndrome - this increases the hormone levels in your body and that is why I was talking so much about your weight -
I understand you want something for it now.
What might help is Progesterone - even the birth control pill called Micronor might help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
