they do seem vain but to be fair, she did get them years ago, before she turned into the grimy junkie she is today. at the time she got them (i've been following her since like 2011-2012), they seemed really clever to me. i can't really recall her scamming people for money and whatnot at that point. she was just a young girl who mentioned her abusive mother and stuff and i think most people just thought of the tattoos like "oh she's got such amazing self confidence! i'm inspired!"
Another animal study examined the effects of Glycyrrhiza uralensis on the morphological features of polycystic ovaries using immunohistochemistry [50] (Table 1). This study demonstrated significantly increased ovulation rates by the number of corpus luteum in polycystic ovaries compared with controls. The authors propose that the mechanism of effect for Glycyrrhiza uralensis was competitive inhibition of oestrogen at oestrogen receptor sites, limiting the production of nerve growth factor (NGF), its neurotropic effects and inhibition of sympathetic neurological involvement in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovaries.
I've noticed a repeating pattern with cows where someone makes an off hand comment about their appearance, which was probably more of a: "wow that looks fucking bizarre but I don't want to be flat out rude but am so baffled I still have to comment" comment. Which I assume is what happened with the angel shit. If anyone actually said that. She just misinterpreted it as a compliment.

Asimismo, muchas chicas con síndrome de ovario poliquístico se pueden quedar embarazadas. Si mantienes relaciones sexuales, necesitas utilizar preservativos en cada ocasión para no quedarte embarazada ni contraer ninguna enfermedad de transmisión sexual (ETS). Esto es muy importante, independientemente de que padezcas o no un síndrome de ovario poliquístico.


Along with the hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance, Medling says that chronic, low-grade inflammation is the third player in the syndrome. (5) Follow an anti-inflammatory diet, which includes nutrient and fiber-rich produce that are low on the glycemic index (like apples and berries), grass-fed meats, organic poultry, as well as sources of omega-3s (like chia seeds and fatty fish) and avoids inflammatory, heavily processed foods, like french fries, potato chips, cake, and cookies. You’ll also want to keep track of foods that bother you (like if dairy gives you gas) and avoid those to help you feel better, she says. (6)
2. Two studies investigated the ovulation rates, number of corpus luteum and follicle characteristics in rats with polycystic ovaries following exposure to various doses of Tribulus terrestris[46, 47]. 2. Equivalence of Tribulus terrestris and three ovulation induction pharmaceuticals evaluated ovulation in women with oligo/anovular infertility (n = 148) [60].G 2. No oestrogenic effects in female reproductive tissues [51].
It's what's prescribed to me by a health care specialist aka my psychiatrist so I think I'm doing ok? It would be awful to get off of but I still exist like a regular person and sleep 8 hours a night thanks to seoquel. It did make me gain weight but I have that in control now. I can still do math problems and read books.. I just forget what I'm talking about sometimes
MRI (or magnetic resonance imaging) scan is a radiology technique which uses magnetism, radio waves, and a computer to produce images of body structures. MRI scanning is painless and does not involve X-ray radiation. Patients with heart pacemakers, metal implants, or metal chips or clips in or around the eyes cannot be scanned with MRI because of the effect of the magnet.
Various laparoscopic methods, including electrocautery, laser drilling, and multiple biopsy, have been used with the goal of creating focal areas of damage in the ovarian cortex and stroma. According to the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), laparoscopic ovarian drilling may be considered in women with clomiphene-resistant PCOS, especially in the presence of other laparoscopic indications. [2] A small French study also suggested that surgical management via ovarian drilling with hydrolaparoscopy may be beneficial in cases of PCOS that are resistant to clomiphene citrate. [87]

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.
Metformin, an antidiabetic drug, improves insulin resistance and decreases hyperinsulinemia in patients with PCOS. [68] This drug also has a small but beneficial effect on metabolic syndrome, as well as potentially causing a modest reduction in androgen levels (11%). [4] Note that women with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 37 kg/m2 may not have a good response to metformin. [4] An Italian study of 33 patients with PCOS demonstrated that metformin affected thyroid hormone by lowering thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in hypothyroid patients with PCOS, regardless of whether these individuals received levothyroxine or were untreated. [69]
PCOS es un complemento que ayuda a equilibrar los niveles hormonales (exceso de testosterona) en las mujeres con SOP. Esos desequilibrios hormonales provocan en la mayoría de los casos signos externos de hiperandrogenismo como exceso de vello, caída excesiva del cabello y acné. Al regular tus niveles hormonales, conseguirás suavizar y mejorar esos signos externos 🙂

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.
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]
Padecer el síndrome de ovario poliquístico puede ser muy duro para la autoestima de una chica porque algunos de sus síntomas, como los problemas en la piel, el vello corporal y la ganancia de peso, son claramente visibles. Por suerte, hay medidas que puedes tomar para reducir los síntomas físicos y, así, te podrás centrar en el componente emocional de vivir con este síndrome.

He probably does, and is trying to "make it up" to her by buying her all these purses, makeup, etc. and giving her money. I dated a girl for a while who would always shit-talk her dad as being "abusive" and "a narcissist." She'd scream at him and throw literal tantrums whenever he'd try to ask her- politely, I might add- about possibly finding a job or coming to visit him, and he'd throw money and gifts at her to try to make her love him. (The twist here is that she turned out to be the abusive narcissist. Ha. Ha ha.)

She vain, but she's vain about her aesthetic, not her body. She mentions her imperfections all the time rather than hiding them; she knows she has cellulite, we know that she has cellulite, it isn't something she's trying to hide from the world. Her imperfections are part of her 'poor and free' aesthetic (see gutterpunks for an example of a subculture that glorifies this). The people who point out the problems with her body are adding nothing to the discussion. The comments about her body flaws do nothing but clutter the threads with self-serving, childish garbage, usually in horrible tumblr-speak. Like yeah, we get that Luna's breasts are saggy. We've seen them and heard it a billion times already. Just stop.
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,
Ciertos médicos permiten que las embarazadas con PCOS sigan tomando metformina durante el embarazo, mientras que otros no se la recetan a mujeres que están tratando de concebir. No existe evidencia de que cause defectos congénitos, pero se desconocen los efectos a largo plazo en el bebé. Las mujeres deben hablar con su médico sobre los riesgos y beneficios de los medicamentos. Por lo general se vigila más de cerca a aquellas que toman el medicamento. Después del embarazo, muchas mujeres con el síndrome tienen ciclos menstruales normales y se les hace más fácil volver a salir embarazadas.

That makes a lot of sense. It's kind of a shame, though; although he does keep a roof over her head, which is much more than she could hope for (though she'll probably end up homeless at some point anyway), imo she would have kept her tumblr following and suckers who'd donate much longer had she dated somebody who matched her aesthetic and who she could take ~cool~ photo ops with rather than a dirty older man who serves to illustrate how miserable and unglamorous the lifestyle really is. Her relationship with Lurch has caused her to become almost a PSA about what junkie life is like beneath all the staging so many of them do on social media.
they do seem vain but to be fair, she did get them years ago, before she turned into the grimy junkie she is today. at the time she got them (i've been following her since like 2011-2012), they seemed really clever to me. i can't really recall her scamming people for money and whatnot at that point. she was just a young girl who mentioned her abusive mother and stuff and i think most people just thought of the tattoos like "oh she's got such amazing self confidence! i'm inspired!"
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.
This review synthesises the evidence for mechanisms of effect for herbal medicine in oligo/amenorrhoea, hyperandrogenism and PCOS. Laboratory, animal and clinical studies demonstrate that the herbal medicines Vitex agnus-castus, Cimicifuga racemosa and Tribulus terrestris initiate endocrine effects in the pituitary as measured by lowered prolactin and LH and raised FSH. Four herbal medicines, Tribulus terrestris, Glycyrrhiza spp., (alone and in combination with Paeonia lactiflora), Paeonia lactiflora (in combination with Cinnamomum cassia) and Cinnamomum cassia demonstrated morphological changes in polycystic ovaries and steroidogenesis, including reduced ovarian volume and cysts, lowered androgens, improved insulin sensitivity and increased oestradiol.

Treatments for hirsutism in women with PCOS are similar to those in women without PCOS, such as patients with idiopathic hirsutism. There are many nonpharmacologic treatment options, including electrolysis, waxing, bleaching, plucking, depilatory creams (a form of hair removal that dissolves the hair), thermolysis (use of heat), and laser therapy. Several medications have been studied for the treatment of hirsutism in women with PCOS. First-line agents include spironolactone (Aldactone)22,23,28–30 and metformin,13,16,20,22,31–33 as well as eflornithine (Vaniqa) for facial hirsutism.9
I actually felt really sad for her on a tumblr post once and gave her a spare fiver. the old dude seems to be the light of her life but hes always oding and shes always alone shooting up in public parks. the lack of hygiene seems to be like an "i dont feel human enough to be clean" thing. She's just so saddening I can't bring myself to laugh at all.
Agreed, sounds like a bunch of insecure teenagers trying to tear people down for things they can't help so they can feel better about their own misshapen bodies. Luna is shitty enough of her own accord; no need to get all up in arms over things that she has no control over when she doesn't even pretend to be a flawless aphrodite like many of the cows here. It's just self-serving tryhardery at that point.
No evidence that therapeutic agents additional to V. agnus-castus in Mastodynon® affect prolactin concentration. Four withdrew for unknown reasons. All pregnant women were withdrawn from the study. 4 women had miscarriages, all in the active arm. After 2 years there were 21 more pregnancies with 2 miscarriages – evenly spread over active and placebo groups. Women with infertility were included in this study however data from women who conceived were excluded. This may have led to an underestimation of treatment effect (type 1 error).
I don't want to be a cow thank you. No, I'm not naturally ginger. My friend was on my account last night taking the piss. I've deleted the comments because I'm not a cunt who comments horrible things on people's profiles. We was talking about Luna because I found this thread. I don't even know what the comments meant myself, I was confused. So yeah, say what youse like I'm not really arsed.

There is no cure yet, but there are many ways you can decrease or eliminate PCOS symptoms and feel better. Your doctor may offer different medicines that can treat symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, excess hair, and elevated blood sugar. Fertility treatments are available to help women get pregnant. Losing as little as 5% excess weight can help women ovulate more regularly and lessen other PCOS symptoms. The ideal way to do this is through nutrition and exercise.

Many assisted-reproduction techniques are available for women who have difficulty conceiving because of PCOS. Working with UChicago Medicine experts in reproductive endocrinology, the Center for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome offers a full spectrum of standard and innovative fertility therapies — from oral and injectible medications that stimulate ovulation to advanced in vitro fertilization techniques, including use of donor eggs.

Not all women with PCOS have difficulty becoming pregnant. For those that do, anovulation or infrequent ovulation is a common cause. Other factors include changed levels of gonadotropins, hyperandrogenemia and hyperinsulinemia.[89] Like women without PCOS, women with PCOS that are ovulating may be infertile due to other causes, such as tubal blockages due to a history of sexually transmitted diseases.
