Comment from: laurie, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: February 13

My life has been a battle due to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) although I have found supplementing with progesterone has helped me lose weight. I developed this from being overweight, no one in my family has it. I am insulin resistant with chronic urinary tract infections.
