PCOS Talk - and other endocrino problems Anonymous 75
PCOS affects about 10% of women, so if there is 100 people using this board, there is a high chance that there is at least 10 of us here.
Let's talk about symptons, weight, acne, hair, medication and natural alternatives. Also let's vent about our struggles and insecurities.
I just dyed my hair because I couldn't bear the mud color it had for about a year now. I didn't use a very abrasive dye, it was an all-natural type of stuff. Still, my hair fell like crazy. It's been falling like crazy, actually. I've lost half of it, already. I feel like Kootex lmao It's making me depressed.
But on a side happy note, I think my medication is starting to slowly making me lose weight. So hooray, I guess
How can I remove my hairy hairy goatee without breaking out? I use a scrub and disinfect and everything and still I break out
Sorry anon, I can barely do anything without breaking out lmao so I don't really know.
Have you tried laser hair removal, tho? It worked for me. Now I have a normal amount of arm hair. I'm going to laser remove my facial hairs as well soon enough.
Yo, I don't have PCOS (sorry for shitting up the thread) but I do have a few little black hairs on my jaw and one on my chin and when I was younger I tried shaving them and I broke out like full pizza face. Now I epilate the peachfuzz and the black hairs which stings bad but works way better and for longer. I used to use like, anti-bacterial aftershave but now I've got one of those fancy korean skincare regimens so I only use PH balanced things and NEVER soap. I think if anyone has ANY hormonal issues it's super important to use ph balanced skincare to keep the moisture barrier strong and bacteria at bay. Using a ph balancing toner works awesome as a kind of disinfectant and doesn't break me out even though I've got pretty reactive skin. You might want to try it. (Mizon AHA & BHA Daily Clean Toner)
Just recently learned that my PCOS is the auto immune/inflammatory type. My TSH levels are a bit higher than normal and I've been losing hair nonstop for more than a year now. People around me that usually would go like "Nah, you have a lot of hair, it's normal to lose some" are finally noticing that I am not "losing some hair", I am going fucking bald. I don't know what to do anymore to fix this and I tried many things, and went to many doctors. I just want my hair back.
What is it made of? Not and amerifag so can't get the exact same one. I do take Pill Food, tho, and not working at all, so far.
My skin did get a bit better after I started doing Intermitent Fasting, though.
