Welcome to the new area ladies

I am sorry if the intro sounds clumsy - feel free to suggest a better name or intro "spiel" if you would prefer.

I guess that depends on 'actual' or 'mental' age, I've always felt about 26 but with more & more experience!!!! :lol:

how about 'life begins after 40' or something like that instead of 'oldies'??

Or PCOS after 40? Thanks Mrs B and Holly for starting the forum. We quite often get women on the board who have pcos, and are concerned for their daughters who also have the conditon. They rarely mention their own problems - it would be good to hear from them on this forum. It would also be nice to hear from women who are going through or have gone through the menopause, if they feel able to share there experiences - good, bad or otherwise! There seems to be little or no research available. Sharing experiences would be a start and maybe we would feel a little less abandoned! Ann

Just wanted to say thank you for starting up this forum... I'm almost 52 and it's nice to be able to have a specific area where us 'mature' women can share our thoughts and feelings! :D

Hi Gill, I don't think age matters if you have things you want to say that are relevant to older women _ feel free!

I'd also just like to say a thank you for this area. Having hit 40 this year, but only been diagnosed a couple of years ago, it can sometimes feel as if all the discussions are aimed at much younger women. Nice to have a 'quiet' space for those of us with slightly more experience. :)

Hi I am new to verity, but interested in the menopause question. I was diagnosed in 1990 have a fairly patient husband, two lovely teenagers and have been educating my health professionals for most of that time about PCOS. (or so it feels!)

i have had a mirena coil for the last 6 years -I am on my second one now. my pain is horrendous, but at least i have lighter periods in a cycle, so my build up to PMT isn't as bad as it was when i was younger.

i take mefanemic cid and/or co drydamol to help with the pain but it doesn't touch the sides some months.

i am back at the gym, trying to eat fewer sweet things ( I really struggle with this) and know I'll feel better for it in a few more weeks . . .
I am interested in others' experiences, the more we share the better!
