I have been diagnosed with PCOS. My doctor said I should loose weight as it helps regulate periods in women with PCOS. She suggested me to start a exercise program and see if I can get my periods naturally by waiting 5 days days after the first day of my expected period. If I dont get a period then I should take the progestorne course. I have been exercising and so far lost 4 lbs of weight. But I have been seeing slight reddish brown discharge every day after the induced period ended.Is it because of the waiting or is it beacuse of exercise(I have been working out for 40 mins daily).
Take the Poll
IS it OK to wait till the first day of my expected period before taking progestorone supplement?
