Just recently I was diagnosed with pco-syndrome. My symptoms are:

- acne

- diffuse hair loss

- irregular menstrual cycle

A gynaecologist did an ultrasound on me and confirmed my suspicions, I have pcos.

Now basically she said there's not much you can do, except go on birth control. The thing is, I have been on birth control (diane35) for 3 years, and although it helped my acne a little, the hair loss started while I was on it. I've been off it for a year now, and my hair stayed the same (not worse, nor better).

I'm also on accutane now and I've been on it for almost 2 months and my skin is definitely improving, but i wonder if it's more likely to come back after the treatment, because of pcos. Does anyone here took accutane while having pcos?

And I've read some things about a low carb diet, does that really help with the symptoms? Oh do i love carbs...

Would love to hear some experiences :)
