The only real annoyance that I have now is the excess hair! Everything else I've been able to manage.

That's good news about your mums friend always hope lol
Saw palmetto supposed to help with hair and acne if u wanna check that out. I don't have hair but bad acne also my hair is so thin. Ahh pcos really sucks
Ooh I'll have a look into that. Yeah I suffered for 25 years with bad acne on face and back and then last year I decided enough, got referred to a dermatologist and was prescribed roaccutane tablets. They were quite tough going for 6 months (side effects are quite drastic and you have to have a monthly pregnancy check) but they've worked fab and Ive got lovely clear skin now. Definitely worth it

As far as the extra pill as long as you stay under the 2000 mg limit I don't see a problem.

I should check out the saw palmetto. I have excess hair and it's so embarrassing. I have mild acne but it's more cycle related.

I think 50 mg is the typical starting dose for clomid. I've responded very well to it so I'm hoping for a similar result next month.

Bumble I can't take accutane because of ttc, causes birth defects.

Saw palmetto cleared my face in 4days! But when I started 2000mg met, I stopped saw palmetto n already got two acne maybe I will go back on

Of course not whilst TTC... I would still recommend it for after TTC. I know I wasn't allowed to get pregnant whilst on it because of the potential risks but at that point in my life it was fine.

Doctor said if u are sexually active and not on bc pills, they don't give accutane. I will never take bc pills for sure. Also DH and I decided that we will never prevent since getting pregnant is so hard for us. Maybe after we managed to have our 4 kids

Golden- I kinda wish we would have no prevented. We did the first 4 months and I'm certian I was ovulating as my periods were a faithful 23 days apart. Then we decided to ntnp and within two months they were going wacky. Well 18 months later and nothing. I'm happy for the age gap we will have but sad we struggle so much.

Welcome Jadza.
