Aparte de preguntarte sobre tus antecedentes médicos, el médico te hará un examen físico, que incluirá pesarte y evaluar algunos signos específicos, como el acné, el crecimiento del vello y el oscurecimiento de la piel. Es posible que te haga un examen ginecológico para descartar otras posibles causas de tus síntomas, pero esto no siempre es necesario para hacer el diagnóstico.

Not necessarily. I've been on Benzos off and on since I was 13 (12 years) for panic attacks, social anxiety, etc. and I'm fine. There are also Benzos that give less of that 'floaty feeling' like Ativan. Not to start a discussion about what addiction is or isn't but I think how a drug makes you think and feel and want is completely personal and genetic.
Gayunpaman, kinakailangan pang magsagawa ng karagdagang pag-aaral  upang mapagtibay  ang claim na ito, ang bagong tuklas na pag-aaral na ito ay maaaring maging sanhi ng mga pagbabago sa kung paano haharapin ng mga medical practitioners ang kondisyong ito, na kung saan naaapektuhan ang isa sa 10 mga kababaihan sa buong mundo, ayon sa National Institutes of Health.
This work attempts to give a review of ovarian innervation, the mechanism of regulation of nerve activity and the role of the sympathetic activity in ovarian pathologies affecting reproductive function. We provide a succinct outline of the findings of our group in this area. The participation of stress as an etiological factor for ovarian pathologies throughout animal models and preliminary data in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome give strong support for a participation of sympathetic nerves in the ovary function both in normal and pathological states.
The pathogenesis of PCOS has been linked to altered luteinizing hormone (LH) action, insulin resistance, and a possible predisposition to hyperandrogenism.3–7 One theory maintains that underlying insulin resistance exacerbates hyperandrogenism by suppressing synthesis of sex hormone–binding globulin and increasing adrenal and ovarian synthesis of androgens, thereby increasing androgen levels. These androgens then lead to irregular menses and physical manifestations of hyperandrogenism.8
Sperm capacitation must be evaluated to perform the low-complexity treatment (semen evaluation after preparation to estimate the number of sperm with progressive motility, which includes those that theoretically have the ability to ascend the female reproductive tract in vivo and fertilize the egg in the fallopian tube). Thus, the semen is centrifuged and the concentration of capacitated sperm recovered is measured as follows: >10 million recovered motile sperms (any infertility treatment is viable); >5 million (IUI, in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) may be performed); between 1 and 5 million (IVF or ICSI may be performed); and <1 million (only ICSI can be performed) 27,28. It is worth noting that if the patient presents with bilateral tubal occlusion in the initial assessment, sperm capacitation is only performed to evaluate the possibility of performing IVF or ICSI 8.

Many women with PCOS have decreased sensitivity to insulin, the hormone that regulates glucose (sugar) in the blood. This condition, known as insulin resistance, is a major risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Women with PCOS often have type 2 diabetes, which occurs more frequently in women with PCOS. Signs of insulin resistance include weight gain (especially around the waist), acanthosis nigricans (skin thickening around the neck, armpits, belly, button, and other creases), and skin tags.

She's talking about withdrawal symptoms, the nausea/puking and massive diarrhea, lmao. That's just part of withdrawal though, and I'm sure she had access to a toilet? Like, what's wrong with actually going through withdrawal? Maybe I'm old school, but I withdrew cold turkey 9 times in the process of getting clean, and that's the easiest part of recovery. Take loperamide for the diarrhea and deal w/ it. Granted, I did genuinely want to get sober, and I doubt Luna does, but still. Choices, consequences. Don't shoot heroin if you can't handle the diarrhea when you're without it. Pfffft, junkies these days.


We conducted two searches. The first was sensitive and aimed to capture all pre-clinical studies explaining the reproductive endocrine effects of whole herbal extracts in PCOS or associated oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism. The second search was specific and sought only clinical studies investigating herbal medicines revealed during the first search (for which a mechanism of effect had been demonstrated). We additionally searched, on a case by case basis for pre-clinical evidence for herbal medicines identified during the second search, but not included in the results of the first search. Clinical studies were excluded based on the absence of evidence for a mechanism of effect for the whole herbal extract in reproductive endocrinology associated with PCOS, oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism. We used this approach to improve transparency and to limit confirmation bias for herbal medicines favoured by the authors in clinical practice.

Other pharmacological treatments have attempted to lower IR. Vitamin D has been shown to decrease HOMA-IR despite a lack of change in hyperandrogenism in young, obese PCOS women[99]. Animal studies have demonstrated that treatment with glycyrrhizic acid affecting lipoprotein lipase activity decreases serum insulin and HOMA-IR[100]. Although oral contraceptive pills positively affect hyperandrogenism, they have little to no effect on glucose metabolism by OGTT[101]. Long term oral contraceptive pill use may have some limited benefit in IR but data are limited[102]. A 6 mo course of oral contraceptive pill treatment in adolescent obese PCOS women has demonstrated some improvement in IR[103].
Treatment for 3 months. 1 tablet per day. Bromocriptine in the form of Parlodel produced by Novartis, Turkey, 2.5 mg twice daily. Normal range 25.2mIU/l - 628.5 mIU/l. Equivalence demonstrated for the significant reduction of serum prolactin for V. agnus-castus and Bromocriptine (P = 0.96). Small sample sizes with 2 sub-groups. Insufficiently powered to correctly identify the effects; 377 participants were required (±5%, 95% confidence).
Obesity that occurs with PCOS needs to be treated because it can cause numerous additional medical problems. The management of obesity in PCOS is similar to the management of obesity in general. Weight loss can help reduce or prevent many of the complications associated with PCOS, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Consultation with a dietician on a frequent basis is helpful until just the right individualized program is established for each woman.
You can lose weight by exercising regularly and having a healthy, balanced diet. Your diet should include plenty of fruit and vegetables, (at least five portions a day), whole foods (such as wholemeal bread, wholegrain cereals and brown rice), lean meats, fish and chicken. Your GP may be able to refer you to a dietitian if you need specific dietary advice.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a prevalent, complex endocrine disorder characterised by polycystic ovaries, chronic anovulation and hyperandrogenism leading to symptoms of irregular menstrual cycles, hirsutism, acne and infertility. Evidence based medical management emphasises a multidisciplinary approach for PCOS, as conventional pharmaceutical treatment addresses single symptoms, may be contra-indicated, is often associated with side effects and not effective in some cases. In addition women with PCOS have expressed a strong desire for alternative treatments. This review examines the reproductive endocrine effects in PCOS for an alternative treatment, herbal medicine. The aim of this review was to identify consistent evidence from both pre-clinical and clinical research, to add to the evidence base for herbal medicine in PCOS (and associated oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism) and to inform herbal selection in the provision clinical care for these common conditions.

En las chicas con síndrome de ovario poliquístico, los ovarios fabrican cantidades de andrógenos más elevadas de lo normal y esto puede interferir en el desarrollo y la liberación del óvulo. A veces, en vez de la formación y la maduración de óvulos, se desarrollan quistes en los ovarios, que son pequeñas bolsas llenas de líquido que pueden aumentar de tamaño. Puesto que las chicas con síndrome de ovario poliquístico no ovulan ni liberan un óvulo cada mes, es habitual que tengan periodos irregulares o que no les venga la menstruación.
Acne is common in the general population and in patients with PCOS. Hormonal contraceptives are first-line medications for treating acne associated with PCOS and can be used in conjunction with standard topical acne therapy (e.g., retinoids, antibiotics, benzoyl peroxide) or as monotherapy.19,34 Antiandrogens, spironolactone being the most common, can be added as second-line medications.19,34
One note: “It takes about six months before the effect of these medications are seen on hair growth,” says David A. Ehrmann, MD, director of the University of Chicago Center for PCOS in Illinois. (This is because one hair growth cycle takes two to three months.) “When patients don’t know that, they get frustrated when they don’t see results quickly,” he says. Talk to your doctor about what you can realistically expect and when.
A polycystic ovary is defined as an ovary containing 12 or more follicles (or 25 or more follicles using new ultrasound technology) measuring 2 to 9 mm in diameter or an ovary that has a volume of greater than 10 mL on ultrasonography. A single ovary meeting either or both of these definitions is sufficient for diagnosis of polycystic ovaries.23,25 However, ultrasonography of the ovaries is unnecessary unless imaging is needed to rule out a tumor or the patient has met only one of the other Rotterdam criteria for PCOS.19,26 Polycystic ovaries meeting the above parameters can be found in as many as 62% of patients with normal ovulation, with prevalence declining as patients increase in age.27
Sylvia Rebecca - "I have to share how good I feel since joining this program. I have been on it for 3 weeks. I take the supplements faithfully, started working out, eat better and drink half my body weight in water. My mood swings are better and I just feel happier. For the last 3 years I have been depressed and did not want to do anything, but look at me now. I am hoping that my period will start soon. This is the next step for me. I do not get a period without taking Provera. You guys are also an amazing group of women and so happy to be on this journey with all of you. A NEW ME!!!!!!"
The Androgen Excess and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Society recommends lifestyle management as the primary therapy for metabolic complications in overweight and obese women with PCOS. [67] A moderate amount of daily exercise increases levels of IGF-1 binding protein and decreases levels of IGF-1 by 20%. Modest weight loss of 2-5% of total body weight can help restore ovulatory menstrual periods in obese patients with PCOS. A decrease of 500-1000 calories daily, along with 150 minutes of exercise per week, can cause ovulation.

Some have tried to utilize ultrasound to detect IR. Of note, normoglycemic women often have the phenotypic criteria for polycystic ovaries on ultrasound[54], consistent with other data in young adolescents showing that polycystic ovaries by ultrasound appearance often does not correlate with either anovulatory menstrual cycles or metabolic abnormalities[55]. Therefore ultrasound is too non-specific to use with any reliability in measuring IR.


A team approach involving care by primary care and subspecialist physicians can be helpful to address the multiple manifestations of the syndrome. Goals for treatment (e.g., treating infertility; regulating menses for endometrial protection; controlling hyperandrogenic features, including hirsutism and acne) must account for the patient's preferences because therapy selection may otherwise conflict with outcomes that the patient considers important. Metabolic complications should be addressed in every patient via a blood pressure evaluation, a lipid panel, and a two-hour oral glucose tolerance test. Patients who are overweight should be evaluated for signs and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. All patients should be screened for depression (Figure 119).
PCOS is a multifaceted syndrome that affects multiple organ systems with significant metabolic and reproductive manifestations. Treatment should be individualized based on the patient's presentation and desire for pregnancy (Figure 219,29–35). Devices and medications used to treat manifestations of PCOS, and their associated adverse effects, are described in Table 2.19,29–33,36
Even though the name suggests that the ovaries are central to disease pathology, cysts are a symptom instead of the cause of the disease. Some symptoms of PCOS will persist even if both ovaries are removed; the disease can appear even if cysts are absent. Since its first description by Stein and Leventhal in 1935, the criteria of diagnosis, symptoms, and causative factors are subject to debate. Gynecologists often see it as a gynecological problem, with the ovaries being the primary organ affected. However, recent insights show a multisystem disorder, with the primary problem lying in hormonal regulation in the hypothalamus, with the involvement of many organs. The name PCOD is used when there is ultrasonographic evidence. The term PCOS is used since there is a wide spectrum of symptoms possible, and cysts in the ovaries are seen only in 15% of people.[33]
