Newly confirmed PCOS'er looking to meet others in London!

Postby Snowflake » Sat Jan 12, 2013 9:16 pm

Hey so as the title says, I've just been diagnosed with PCOS .

I'm hoping that there are some other women around my age (23) in London who I could chat to about this? I know there's a London group which is great and I'm def going to look into also.

Any local gals? I live in Islington.

Looking forward to replies!

Just in case you dont know, there is a meeting next Saturday for the London group so you may want to go. They are a relatively new group so only met up once before so hopefully you wont feel left out. The local lady Krissy is lovely and Im sure she will make you feel more than welcome.

Hi,

I have also been recently diagnosed so would really like to speak to people who understand what life is like with PCOS.

I'm a Londoner in the Camden area and would be interested in any meet ups

Thanks :)

Hi Snowflake,

Mid twenties here and would love to meet up. Don't know any PCOSers in real life. Have been trying for a baby for yonks, no luck as yet with clomid etc, moving on to IVF. Partner is 38, perfect and already has 3 kids from previous marriage. My PCOS is particularly dire but most people do have luck with the meds. Do let me know if you fancy a chat x

Hello are you all still meeting up? I would love to meet you all too, am joining the London group, but smaller casual meet ups would also be real nice. I'm 23, live on a boat so am all over the canals x

Hi girls, I have just registered here and am local in North London. Just diagnosed this week and very frustrated with my doctors inability to actual listen to me! Would be good to meet up if your still doing so x

Hi Megs23, i've just been formally diagnosed this week too and feeling equally frustrated! On the FB London group I think there isn't going to be another meetup until Jan but i'd be happy to meet up before then if you wanted to (and anyone else too). I'm based in East London but I work in central london x

Hey girls. I was diagnosed this year and have had a tough time dealing with it. It's many the excess hair issue that is making me super insecure and my emotions are all over the place, probably from taking the pill! I'm 21 and live in Archway, if anyone wants a chat online or meet up let me know. I think it would help a lot to talk to people who know what's going on x
