Thrombophilia & PCOS

Hi,

I have just been diagnosed with factor v leiden and was just wondering if anyone else out there has been diagnosed with a type of thrombophilia (high blood clotting tendancies) whilst also having PCOS. I've been doing some of my own internet research and found that FVL can come hand in hand with PCOS and insulin resistance. Scared as I don't know where this leaves me in terms of medication to control my hair growth, weight and cycle as i'm currently on the pill and I find this works great for me, but now have to come off it due to the high blood clot risks. Has anyone else controlled there symptoms through diet??

I also had a miscarriage in 2007 and have found FVL can be a cause of them so feel like i'll never be able to have children with both FVL and PCOS..

Any advice will be greatly appreciated :) xx
