Thanks for the clarification, I dont know anything about her or any of the side characters besides a few posts i've skimmed here and those tumblr posts from earlier 2016. I wouldn't be mean to any of them. I think they could really use some kindness. I just find a lack of hygiene to be repulsive due to my own personal germaphobia, i can't even expand and pics in the thread because my skin crawls and shudders and it makes me really nauseous just to see a stained shirt, its my problem. I'm sure she's just a sweet woman whose addiction has her spiraling downward with no way to get into a good rehab place. If they could get enough money for a facility program and keep a sober companion a few years, I think they could have a chance to get better and take care of Roger before he dies.
Other names for this syndrome include polycystic ovarian syndrome, polycystic ovary disease, functional ovarian hyperandrogenism, ovarian hyperthecosis, sclerocystic ovary syndrome, and Stein–Leventhal syndrome. The eponymous last option is the original name; it is now used, if at all, only for the subset of women with all the symptoms of amenorrhea with infertility, hirsutism, and enlarged polycystic ovaries.[52]
Just fyi, when a cat stops grooming itself, it's a sign that it's about to die. Or at least something is seriously wrong, physically or psychologically. Elderly cats typically stop grooming themselves when they're about to die. I'm a vet tech, and have seen cats in their early 20's that still groom themselves. They may need a bit of help with their back ends due to arthritis, but a well cared for cat of any age will at least try.
And that’s not all. Nurturing your health with smart daily choices also helps protect against heart disease and diabetes, major health risks for women with PCOS. And while there’s little research specifically in PCOS, a healthy diet plus exercise and stress reduction are also proven to help lift anxiety and depression, improve sleep, reduce fatigue and boost energy – additional pluses that can help you feel great.
Insulin-sensitizing agents, including metformin,31 acarbose (Precose),24 and rosiglitazone (Avandia),20 may be used to treat hirsutism in women with PCOS. Spironolactone22 and rosiglitazone32 have been shown to be more effective than metformin, based on Ferriman-Gallwey hirsutism scores. A Cochrane review suggested that metformin is as effective as oral contraceptives for treating hirsutism in women with PCOS,33 but in contrast, a recent systematic review suggested that metformin is not effective.1 Topical eflornithine cream is FDA-approved for management of unwanted facial hair, but there are no published data regarding its use specifically in women with PCOS. Sibutramine (Meridia), which is approved for obesity management, can also improve hirsutism.26
I worded that badly. What I mean is that opiates themselves don't relieve pain, but alter the perception of pain. It's possible to alter that perception of pain in other ways, which is why substances like SSRIs cause significant pain relief for some people with some conditions. Ditto with anticonvulsants. Opioids aren't the only drugs that affect norepinephrine and mU receptors, they just happen to be the best at it. If the pleasurable effects of opioids were blocked, there's still therapeutic potential in the "inert" components, like THC vs. CBD.
Now, you can have temporal lobe epilepsy with only absence seizures, which are hard to distinguish from nodding off, besides, sea creature is out of it half the time so wouldn't notice anyway. Plus, the shitload of benzos she's taking might actually inhibit seizures. She might have had seizures she only registered as emotional changes, and started to self medicate with benzos,
Sa PCOS ay hindi nahihinog ang itlog sa obaryo kaya walang tinatawag na ovulation o ang paglabas ng itlog sa obaryo papunta sa matres. Ang gamot na Clomiphene ang binibigay para makatulong sa pag-ovulate. Puwede ring idagdag ng doktor ang Metformin sa Clomiphene. Kung hindi pa rin mabuntis, maaaring magrekomenda ang doctor ng gonadotropin injections.
According to a recent study published in the Endocrine Society’s March 2015 issue of Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, women diagnosed with PCOS are twice as likely to be hospitalized for heart disease, diabetes, mental-health conditions, reproductive disorders, and cancer of the uterine lining. The cost of evaluating and providing care to women with PCOS is approximately $4.36 billion per year.

A clear primary treatment for hirsutism in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) remains lacking. [3] However, short-term, nonpharmacologic treatments of hirsutism include shaving and the use of chemical depilatories and/or bleaching cream. [76] Plucking or waxing unwanted hair can result in folliculitis and ingrown hairs. Long-term, more permanent measures for unwanted hairs include electrolysis and laser treatment.
I reckon probably the latter though, people do actually want to help her, to the extent that people get pissed off as fuck if you express any of that sort of sentiment in here because we've heard it so often. I imagine a lot of posters view her like PT but worse - it's just frustrating to watch someone ruin their life so spectacularly and reject all the things that would actually make their life better.
The effectiveness of aromatase inhibitors in the treatment of PCOS remains controversial. A meta-analysis investigated 78 studies on the use of these medications in the infertility treatment of women with PCOS. Of these studies, 13 RCTs met the inclusion criteria. Six studies compared the use of letrozole versus CC and found that letrozole presented with a higher ovulation rate/patient (OR 2.90; 95% CI: 1.72- 4.88; p<0.0001); however, no significant differences in the rate of ovulation per cycle or better pregnancy, live birth, multiple pregnancy or miscarriages rates were noted. Letrozole also did not obtain better results regarding clinical pregnancy or live birth rates compared with placebo or CC + metformin in women with CC-resistant PCOS. The results of the comparison of the effects of letrozole and anastrozole on ovulation and pregnancy rates in women with CC-resistant PCOS are controversial 41.

Hola, hace unos 6 años me detectaron SOP, me mandaron la píldora ya que no habia otro tipo de tratamiento, me lo diagnosticaron por mi falta de regla y exceso de bello. Hace como unos 6 meses deje la píldora para ver como reaccionaba mi cuerpo, no reacciono bien, volvi a las reglas irregulares y ahora llevo 3 meses sin que me baje. vi vuestra pag de casualidad, y quisiera saber si tomando vuestras pastillas se regulara de forma natural la regla y si hay posiblidad de que baje.

But that just doesn't happen, there are just so many factors to street heroin that make it a dangerous habit. It's not the heroin that's dangerous per se, it's whatever it's cut with + addicts incorrectly injecting themselves. Even if it was regulated like alcohol and addicts got medical grade heroin, retards like Luna would still give themselves abscesses and diseases by uncleanly injecting it.

Regardless of what reasons women have for seeking diagnosis and treatment of PCOS, it is imperative for practitioners to assess a woman’s risk for CAD. Assessment should probably be made in all PCOS patients regardless of BMI. Especially in young women or adolescents, IR may be the first identifiable risk factor. Practitioners must recognize that no universal test for IR exists and must use good clinical judgment to assess metabolic status in women. Stimulated testing with OGTT may be more sensitive than fasting measurements. Women who demonstrate IR should be counseled on lifestyle modifications. Physicians should discuss with their patients a target BMI that is realistically obtainable. It is often advisable for patients to seek nutritional assessment and counseling to help with this goal. In many individuals, consideration should be given to pharmacological treatment. Although the most commonly used medication is metformin, other medications may be appropriate first line therapy, especially in women not actively seeking pregnancy.

Clomid Active ingredient: clomiphene $0.44 for pill Clomid is a fertility drug, used to stimulate FSH and LH production and hereby the ovaries to produce eggs in ovarian disorders. Metformin Active ingredient: metformin $0.26 for pill Metformin is a biguanide anti-diabetic that works by decreasing the amount of sugar that the liver produces and the intestines absorb.
Metformin has been the mainstay of treatment for IR and IGT in PCOS women over the past decade. Metformin is a biguanide that acts principally on the liver to inhibit hepatic gluconeogenesis. It also inhibits acetyl-CoA carboxylase activity and suppresses fatty acid production. Metformin acts on skeletal muscle to inhibit lipid production and acts peripherally on adipose tissue to stimulate glucose transport and uptake. Metformin reduces insulin levels and promotes improved insulin receptor activity[64]. Metformin may also have direct and indirect effects on the ovary with respect to insulin action and steroidogenic enzymatic activity. In the endothelium, metformin seems to improve nitric oxide vasodilatory effects. Many other mechanisms of action have been studied in both animal and human models but consistent effects are not always demonstrated with local tissue concentrations that result from therapeutic doses[65].
Las mujeres con PCOS pueden tomar medicamentos para la fertilidad como Clomid o inyectárselos a fin de inducir la ovulación. Las mujeres también pueden tomar medicamentos para aumentar la sensibilidad a la insulina o esteroides (para reducir el nivel de andrógeno) a fin de inducir la ovulación. Algunos estudios también indican que tomar una dosis baja de aspirina, que ayuda a prevenir la coagulación en el recubrimiento uterino y mejora la circulación, puede mejorar la probabilidad de un embarazo.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is classified as a disorder which encompasses a group of symptoms that collectively indicate a distinct health issue. This means that the symptoms associated with PCOS will vary from woman to woman. Your PCOS experience is probably very different from another woman with this condition but that does not mean you are alone! PCOS is a condition which can affect between 5 – 10% of all women and is the most common cause of infertility.8 You may be wondering how you ended up in this group of women but unfortunately the precise reason polycystic ovarian syndrome develops isn’t completely clear. 8 Having said that, many experts believe insulin as well as hormone imbalances have a strong influence on PCOS and the severity of its symptoms.
Lack of ovulation (monthly release of an egg from the ovary) is the predominant cause for infertility in PCOS women, although some individuals also may have a higher rate of miscarriage. In some PCOS women who are overweight, diet combined with exercise can restore ovulation without the use of medications. Otherwise, several medications are available to restore ovulation in PCOS women. Oral clomiphene citrate stimulates FSH secretion from a woman’s own pituitary (located at the base of the skull) to induce ovarian follicle growth. Subcutaneous injections of gonadotropins with FSH and LH can induce the same events, if necessary. Both medications increase the chance of multiple births, although FSH injections are the most powerful. Other medications include metformin, an insulin sensitizer that slowly lowers insulin and androgen levels to gradually induce ovulation with a lower chance of multiple births. Medications that block estrogen production to stimulate FSH secretion (letrozol) also exist, but additional studies are needed before they can be routinely recommended for ovulation induction. Since most PCOS women ovulate following medical therapy, surgery or in-vitro fertilization (IVF) are generally reserved for PCOS women who fail to ovulate with medication or have other fertility problems.
Oligomenorrhoea was defined as menstrual cycle length that extended beyond 35 days (day one being the first day of menses). Amenorrhoea was defined as no menstrual period for three to six months or more [19]. This review was focussed on hypothalamic, pituitary and ovarian causes of menstrual irregularity with associated elevated gonadotropins including LH and prolactin and arrested folliculogenesis typically observed in polycystic ovaries. Hyperprolactinaemia is usually considered a unique cause for oligo/amenorrhoea; however in the present case it was included due to the potential co-existence for elevated prolactin, LH and PCOS, [32, 35].
The prescription cream eflornithine HCl can slow the growth of new hair when applied as directed on the face and other areas – but it won’t remove existing hair. 20,21 Your doctor may also prescribe a medication called an anti-androgen. In the United States, a medication called spironolactone is used to slow new hair growth. In other countries, cyproterone acetate is widely used but it is not available in the United States.  
Methadone is said to not get people "high," but I beg to differ. It doesn't give any of the euphoria that heroin does, nor the rush, but it definitely has a body high to it. I've never taken a dose of methadone over 30mg (which is a typical maintenance dose, btw) and got so high off that I couldn't walk straight. Mentally I was nearly clear though. Maybe Lurch likes feeling physically retarded and it takes him 130mg to get there? Who knows.
Contrary to the implication of “polycystic,” some women with the condition don’t have any cysts. A diagnosis requires only two of the following three criteria to be met: elevated levels of male sex hormones (which can cause excess hair growth, acne, and baldness), irregular or absent periods, and/or at least 12 follicular cysts on one or both ovaries.

Clinically speaking, the hyperandrogenism seen in PCOS is associated with hirsutism more than acne or alopecia and therefore hirsutism is an impetus for young women seeking care[2]. Many PCOS women are also overweight (BMI > 25kg/m2) or obese (BMI > 30kg/m2), although adiposity is not a defining criteria for PCOS. Obesity is highly prevalent in the general population and in PCOS women and is an independent risk factor for CAD[3]. Obesity in adolescents is correlated with insulin resistance (IR) and dyslipidemia[4]. PCOS related ovulatory dysfunction in adolescents often correlates to adolescent obesity[5]. Genetic predisposition to PCOS has been suspected for many years[6] and data link obesity and metabolic disturbances in PCOS with genetic polymorphisms[7,8]. Even male first degree relatives of women with PCOS have a higher incidence of metabolic syndrome (MS), the closest corollary to PCOS in men[9].
Results for Glycyrrhiza Spp. (and indeed any herbal ingredient) were complicated in this case by the variation in herbal extraction processes and subsequent variability in chemical profiles of the herbal ingredients. The laboratory studies of the herbal material were based on aqueous extracts of crude material whilst the clinical studies were based on ethanol extracts. Despite variability in the herbal extraction methods, both laboratory and clinical studies demonstrated anti-androgenic effects.
It's good to know I'm not alone with having pcos. I found out when I was 18 years old. When I was gr...owing up and in puberty I never had my period. I remember girls around me complaining about there's in high school. But mine never came. I went to a obgyn when I was 16 she gave me meds to get it started, it only worked when I took the med every 3 months. They also did an ultrasound and found multiple cysts on my ovaries, but she did not know what it was. So I never went back to that doctor she was not very bright. But when I was 18 I was reading a magazine about a girl that has pcos and the symptoms and everything, and it sounded like me. So i went to My mom's obgyn and talked to him about what I read and my history of not getting my period on my own, he did an exam, ran some blood tests, and did other ultrasound. Come to find out I have pcos and was put on birth control and metformin. Which I'm still taking and it's been 11 years since I found out I have pcos. See More

This high potency blend of botanicals and antioxidants focuses on supporting the vessels of the cardiovascular system as well as cellular vitality, that can be compromised in women with PCOS and insulin resistance.* Over time, the interior lining of blood vessels are damaged when insulin levels are elevated and this damage contributes to the formation of Cardiovascular Disease. Elevated insulin also causes free radical damage and vessel injuries which are important factors in the progression of PCOS and Insulin Resistance. RejuvaPlus contains high quality antioxidants designed to support cardiovascular vessel integrity, minimize free-radical damage. An additional benefit is supporting immune function.

Our laboratory search included investigations into the effects of herbal medicine using computer models, cell cultures, animals with PCOS induced with oestradiol valerate and androgens and sterilised and ovariectomised rats. We excluded laboratory studies which commenced using isolated chemicals not directly extracted from crude herbal medicines and studies examining androgen effects in male animals.
PCOS is genetic and presents differently in each woman of childbearing age. For some women, symptoms emerge shortly after they begin menstruating. Others may not show signs of the disorder until later in life, or after substantial weight gain, and many don’t receive a diagnosis until they are struggling to get pregnant. A community-based prevalence study published in 2010 found that approximately 70 percent of the 728 women in the cohort had PCOS, but had no pre-existing diagnosis.  
Studies have attempted for years to show an advantage to metformin for ovulation induction and as an adjunct to more advanced fertility treatments. In ovulatory PCOS women metformin was associated with improved serum and follicular fluid AMH levels as well as insulin values; these changes were not seen in anovulatory PCOS women[71]. Despite the demonstration of negative effects of IR on reproductive outcome, the vast majority of evidence does not show improvement in live birth rates when metformin is used strictly for fertility[72], although treatment does improve ovulatory status[72,73].
Diet, exercise, and maintaining a healthy body weight may help many women manage the symptoms of PCOS. These lifestyle changes are recommended to help decrease insulin resistance. Weight reduction can also decrease testosterone, insulin, and LH levels. Regular exercise and healthy foods will help lower blood pressure and cholesterol as well as improve sleep apnea problems. Refraining from smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products also may lower androgen levels.
The long-term prognosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is confirmed by reproductive endocrinologist, Dr. Walter Futterweit, who says: “It’s not just there when you’re trying to have your children. And even into the ages of 40s, you still can have the irregular cycles and the excess androgens. Some of the long-term complications are things that are going to be manifest as the person gets older. So it’s not just a here, there for a few years. It’s pretty much a lifetime illness.”3
Herbal medicines are complex interventions with the potential for synergistic and antagonistic interactions between compounds [25]. Effects within the body may also exhibit complexity by simultaneous interactions with various body systems, both biochemically and by altering organ function [26]. The focus of this review was studies investigating whole herbal medicine extracts with direct effects on reproductive endocrinology for the treatment of women with irregular menstruation, hyperandrogenism and PCOS. The rationale for using this methodology was to identify herbal medicines with current scientific evidence explaining specific reproductive endocrinological effects in PCOS, oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism, to develop understanding for the direct effects of herbal medicines on reproductive endocrinology and to highlight herbal medicines for which there was current scientific evidence supporting herbal medicine selection. The purpose of this review is to inform clinical decisions in integrative settings and meet clinicians and consumers preferences for pragmatic herbal management within an holistic, individualised treatment frame [27, 28].
Misty Robinson - I want to throw a party! I am wrapping up week 4 of the Insulite supplements. I never have regular periods unless on birth control. "Good" for me was once or twice a year.  I began clean eating and cut the caffeine. I started the supplements right before I started my cycleI. I religiously took the supplements and on Day 29 my cycle started AGAIN! My cycle was a textbook case of 28 days. This has never happened to me, and I can't believe how good it feels to have a normal cycle. I am woman! 💪 Plus, I am dropping weight. (happy face)
The routine use of OGTT is advocated by some in all PCOS women[15]. In teenagers, abnormalities in glucose metabolism manifest prior to dyslipidemia, suggesting that assessment of glucose metabolism is even more important in younger women[16]. DM is diagnosed by an 8 h fasting plasma glucose ≥ 126 mg/dL, 2 h glucose value ≥ 200 mg/dL after oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) or random glucose ≥ 200 mg/dL with symptoms of DM confirmed by either fasting plasma glucose or OGTT. Hemoglobin AIC > 6.5% may also be issued to diagnose DM[17]. Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) is defined by a 2 h cutoff of 140-200 mg/dL on OGTT[18].The prevalence of IGT in obese adolescents is surprisingly as high as 15%[19].
Lifestyle change is considered the first-line treatment for infertility in obese women with PCOS. Preconception counseling, administering folic acid to reduce the risk of fetal neural tube defects, encouragement of physical activity and identification of risk factors, such as obesity, tobacco use and alcohol consumption, should be performed. A 5 to 10% loss in body weight over a period of six months regardless of body mass index may be associated with improvement in central obesity, hyperandrogenism and ovulation rate 9. However, no studies with the proper methodology have assessed the live birth rate, which is the primary reproductive outcome 10.
