What you're talking about actually exists - it's called loperamide or Imodium, a widespread drug that exerts an effect only on the mu opioid receptors in the myenteric plexus. It cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. On the other hand, if you want an analgesic, you will have to cross the blood-brain barrier. With cannabinoles, you have different affinities and activities acting on different systems, while for an opioid analgesic the same process that gives the addictive rush. From a purely neurochemical perspective, the difference is that for cannabinoids, the addictive-euphoric and the pain-relieving effects take place on different receptors and it's possible to isolate cannabinoids that have no or little psychoactive effects while for opioids, the effect that gives pain relief is exactly the same as that responsible for addiction. Some opioids have a relatively slow absorption or they can be packaged as an extended release pill that keeps it from hitting the opioid receptors hard and fast. This will prevent it from having the addictive rush that causes compulsive redosing and addiction. But any systemically administered opioid that kills pain will also be at least a little addictive and euphoric. Hope that helps.
There is growing evidence that mood disturbances, mostly severe depression, are common in PCOS women , in whom impaired quality of life from body image concerns cause fatigue, sleep disturbance and changes in eating habits. In addition, many PCOS patients report feeling abnormal, unfeminine, and embarrassed due to unwanted hair, often hiding their hair growth and covering their face when talking to others. Understanding how a woman feels about her body image and improving this perception are essential components of any management plan that provides overall health care to women with PCOS.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition that affects a woman's hormonal levels. Women with PCOS produce higher than normal male hormones which cause them to skip their monthly periods and make it harder for them to get pregnant. PCOS also causes hair growth on the face and body, and baldness. So basically, women with PCOS have dense hair growth on those areas of their bodies where they're not supposed to have excess hair. But they start losing hair from their scalps, leading to baldness. PCOS can contribute to long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disorders.
Hi dok matagal na ako gusto mag ka anak na pressure na ako sa family ko nag aantay ng baby ko 🙁 posible po bang may PCOS aq dahil ang regla q po ay irregular qng hindi po 2months minsan 4months.. nag pa check up na po ako ultrasound at nag pa inject ng anti cervical cancer ang pina painom lang sa ako Metformin tinigil ko na kc wala pa rin nangyare at hindi na din ako bumalik sa ob ko dahil laki na ng gastos ko.. anu pa ba dapat ko try inomin. salamat dok

Often, women with PCOS tend to put on weight easily and have difficulty losing weight. This is because women with PCOS are thrifty with calories. If they eat too much, extra insulin is needed to dispose of the extra sugar. Sadly, this tendency can also increase the risk of diabetes. This is more likely in those with a family history of adult-onset diabetes. Women with PCOS are more likely to develop high blood pressure and diabetes during pregnancy, particularly if they are overweight and have higher than normal insulin levels.
As many as 70% of PCOS women are insulin resistant and 10% have DM[20-22]. In PCOS women with normal glucose metabolism initially, the rate of conversion to abnormal glucose metabolism can be 25% over just three years[23]. More alarming, insulin abnormalities are highly prevalent in adolescents with PCOS[24]. Almost 20% of young Thai women with PCOS actually have DM[25]. Overall, normal glucose levels on an OGTT do not predict IR and IR, despite normal glucose levels, is correlated with CRP, dyslipidemia and other CAD risk factors[26]. Therefore, glucose levels alone lack the sensitivity to predict metabolic risk in PCOS patients. Precursor states of insulin abnormalities likely predict long term CAD risk well before glucose abnormalities. IR can be just as severe in diabetics and non-diabetics[27], stressing the seriousness of this metabolic impairment as a precursor and not a separate disease. Animal models have shown that IR alone damages myocardial cells, providing direct evidence of end organ disease[28]. Human data link HOMA-IR to left ventricular dysfunction[29]. Abnormal glucose metabolism short of IGT and DM still deserves attention, identification and treatment[30].
If the patient does not present with ovulatory cycles at three months after ovarian drilling, then the procedure should be combined with CC treatment. The use of gonadotropins should be considered after 6 months of anovulatory cycles following the ovarian drilling procedure. Ovarian drilling should not be indicated as a treatment for menstrual irregularity, metabolic complications or hyperandrogenism in PCOS 29.
One laboratory study and two clinical investigations provided evidence for the two herb combination, Glycyrrhiza uralensis and Paeonia lactiflora[53, 58, 59] (Table 1). An animal study found significant reductions in free and total testosterone following exposure to the combination [53] (Table 1). These findings were supported in two open label clinical trials including women with PCOS (n = 34) [59] and women with hyperandrogenism (n = 8) [58]. Both trials examined the effects on androgens for the aqueous extract TJ-68 (equal parts Glycyrrhiza uralensis and Paeonia lactiflora), 75 grams per day for 24 weeks and 5–10 grams per day for 2–8 weeks respectively. In the trial including women with PCOS, mean serum testosterone was significantly reduced from 137.1 ng/dL (±27.6) to 85.3 ng/dL (±38), p < 0.001 at four weeks of treatment [59]. Similar effects were observed in the women with oligomenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism which showed serum testosterone reduced from 50-160 ng/dL prior to treatment to less than 50 ng/dL [58]. However statistical significance was not reached due to the small sample size despite positive outcomes in seven out of eight participants (Table 1).

Bajar de peso. Los hábitos de alimentación saludable y la actividad física en forma periódica pueden contribuir a aliviar los síntomas relacionados con SOP. Bajar de peso puede ayudar a reducir los niveles de glucosa en sangre, mejorar la forma en la que el cuerpo utiliza la insulina y ayudar a que las hormonas alcancen niveles normales. Inclusive un 10 % de pérdida de peso (por ejemplo, una mujer que pesa 150 libras y que baje 15) puede ayudar a que el ciclo menstrual sea más regular y que tengas más posibilidades de quedar embarazada. 3 Obtén más información sobre el peso saludable.
In anovulatory women with PCOS defined according to the Rotterdam consensus (includes all phenotypes except the one defined by the association of hyperandrogenism with ultrasound (US) findings), CC treatment is the first choice for ovulation induction 9,15. This drug is an estrogen receptor modulator (it can act as an estrogen agonist or antagonist) and its mechanism of action is controversial but can be explained as follows. In physiological menstrual cycles, low levels of estrogen promote negative feedback in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland and inhibit the endogenous secretion of gonadotropin during the early follicular phase. When CC is administered in this phase of the cycle, it competes with estrogen for its receptors in the hypothalamus and pituitary, which will block the negative feedback mechanism. Consequently, increased levels of endogenous gonadotropins are released and the dominant follicle is recruited (follicle that has the highest number of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) receptors) between the sixth and ninth day of the menstrual cycle 16.

 “We were surprised to find that menstrual abnormalities in women with PCOS was the strongest predictor for mental health issues, particularly when there are so many other symptoms—like beard growth and infertility—that can make a woman feel unfeminine,” says senior author Nancy Reame, the Mary Dickey Lindsay Professor of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at Columbia Nursing. “The study findings suggest that we can’t treat PCOS effectively unless we pay close attention to any signs of mental distress.”
Reglan Active ingredient: metoclopramide $0.37 for pill Reglan is used for short-term treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in certain patients who do not respond to other therapy. It is used to treat symptoms of a certain digestive problem in diabetic patients (diabetic gastroparesis). Prilosec Active ingredient: omeprazole $0.49 for pill Prilosec relieves symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease decreasing the amount of acid in the stomach.
Herbal remedies are found as dried extracts (teas, capsules or powders),glycerites or tinctures (alcohol extracts). You should never start any type of natural treatment for PCOS like herbs without talking to your doctor. Many people are under the misconception that because herbs are natural they cannot cause any damage to the body. This is incorrect. Herbs are very powerful and obviously impact the body strongly or you would not be considering them to treat physical symptoms and disorders. Most of the synthetic drugs on the market have base sources from herbs like Digitalis from foxglove. Herbs are like any other medication you might be taking which means they can also influence drugs and other herbs either positively or negatively. For example, some herbs can reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills (ued as a PCOS treatment) which could create some interesting surprises in your life.

You may feel that it is difficult to lose excess weight and keep it off, but it is important to continue the effort. Your efforts help reduce the risk for developing serious health complications that can impact women with PCOS much sooner than women without PCOS. The biggest health concerns are diabetes, heart disease, and stroke because PCOS is linked to having high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, and high cholesterol.
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
This was originally developed as a blood pressure medication and diuretic for hormonal forms of high blood pressure (hypertension) and fluid retention. “Turns out, in high doses, it’s very good at blocking male hormones,” explains Dunaif. For that reason, it’s used to target excess hair growth, a symptom of PCOS that can be particularly embarrassing.
The IUI is performed with the same dose of gonadotropins recommended for timed intercourse (combined or not with clomiphene). However, for this treatment modality, the recombinant hCG is administered for final oocyte maturation when the dominant follicle has a mean diameter of 17 to 18 mm via US examination and capacitated sperm can be injected into the uterine cavity 36 hours later. Beta hCG is measured 14 days later to confirm pregnancy 25.
Positive effects for Vitex agnus-castus in oligo/amenorrhoea and infertility was demonstrated in three placebo controlled RCTs [61, 62, 64]. In a study including women with menstrual irregularity and infertility (n = 96), menstrual cyclicity was significantly improved for women treated with Vitex agnus-castus (Mastodynon® 30 drops per day for three months) compared to placebo (p = 0.023) [61] (Table 2). Another study, including women with sub fertility (n = 67), showed improved menstrual cyclicity for a sub-group of women with oligomenorrhoea following treatment with Vitex agnus-castus (Phyto-Hypophyson® 7.5 ml per day) compared to placebo, (p = 0.023) [62] (Table 2). A third study including women with hyperprolactinaemia (n = 37) demonstrated improved menstrual cyclicity by an increased average number of luteal days from 3.4 days (±5.0) to 10.5 days (±4.3) (p < 0.005) following treatment with Vitex agnus-castus (Strotan® 20 mg per day) for three months. The placebo group reported average number of days in the luteal phase was 3.4 (±5.1) at baseline and 5.5 (±5.2) at three months, which was not significant (p = 0.22) [64] (Table 2). Methodological shortcomings included not reporting baseline characteristics for subgroups and small sample sizes; however clinical outcomes demonstrated physiological effects consistent with laboratory and animal findings (Tables 1 and ​and22).

Mandy Bush - I've been active with this program for approximate 3 years. I went off the supplements a month ago because I felt I needed a break. My face started breaking out again and my mood swings went haywire. Needless to say, I am back on the program. I am grateful and happy that I have the supplements and all the great resources that Insulite Health has to offer available to me! Check it out, try it, ask questions - the staff is amazing!


According to Dr. Geoffrey Redmond, an endocrinologist specializing in female hormones, “Just because the ovaries are not functioning as much doesn’t mean the other abnormalities won’t still be present.” He goes on to point out that studies show male hormone levels climb fairly sharply with age.2 This could mean a worsening of symptoms such as excess hair growth as those hormones become more active. It could also mean insulin-related issues such as diabetes and cardiovascular health could become more problematic.
Hi Dokbru, simula po kasi nag ka hyperacidity ako last october hindi n naman po nag regular ang menstruation ko. Minsan isang buwan konti lang lalabas n dugo n medyo parang putik pa ang kulay nya s ngaun po mag 2months n po akong d dinadatnan. Di naman po ako mabuntis kasi wala po dito asawa ko.. Nung high school pa po kc ako nkaranas na ako ng di nireregla at 5months po un .. Anu po pwede kung gawin?
Treatment of PCOS is individualized and depends on whether or not pregnancy is being sought. Dietary modifications, weight management and regular exercise are important factors in the management of this condition in all women with PCOS, regardless of whether they are trying to conceive or not. Cosmetic treatment options to treat excess body hair, particularly facial hair, include electrolysis, laser treatment and typical medication which act at the hair follicle. There are medical and surgical options to treat the hormone abnormalities associated with PCOS. For women who are not trying to conceive, medical treatment options include oral contraceptives, progestational agents (that induce periods), and drugs that block the production or action of androgens. In some cases, surgery is performed to cauterize the cysts, which results in a decrease in male hormone levels and return of ovulation in some women. Insulin modifiers are useful in those women with high insulin levels and insulin resistance but do not benefit all women with PCOS. The safety of these medications in pregnancy has not been established.
Clomiphene is an ovulation induction agent that has been used and studied in patients with and without PCOS.6–8,15,35,36 Studies have found that letrozole (Femara) regulates ovulation and improves pregnancy rates in women with PCOS6,37,38; however, this use is controversial because the drug is FDA pregnancy category D. It is embryotoxic and fetotoxic in animal studies, and there are no studies in pregnant women.
Preclinical and clinical studies provide preliminary evidence that six herbal medicines may have beneficial effects for women with oligo/amenorrhea, hyperandrogenism and PCOS. The quality of the evidence is variable and strongest for Vitex agnus-castus and Cimicifuga racemosa in the management of oligo/amenorrhea and infertility associated with PCOS; and Cinnamomum cassia for improving metabolic hormones in PCOS. Evidence for Tribulus terrestris, Glycyrrhiza spp. alone and in combination with Paeonia lactiflora and Paeonia lactiflora combined with Cinnamon cassia is promising but in an emergent phase. Further investigations into the mechanisms of effect for herbal extracts are needed to complete our understanding of the reproductive endocrinological effects for herbal medicine for these common conditions.

For women who don’t receive timely, appropriate care for PCOS in early adolescence, the development of symptoms such as facial-hair growth can become more challenging to treat. Brandy Cramer, 33, a program officer at The Cameron Foundation, from Midlothian, Virginia says her doctors told her she just wasn’t trying hard enough to lose weight and dismissed her when she requested they run blood tests or suggest alternatives to the birth-control pills that gave her intense migraines. Cramer grew facial hair and has only been able to remove 50 percent of it, even after expensive laser hair-removal treatment.
The first step in diagnosing PCOS is to have a complete history and physical examination performed by a trained health care provider. A careful history and physical examination can detect whether androgen excess is causing male-pattern hair growth (hirsutism), acne or hair loss and whether ovulation is occurring normally. Physical examination also can detect high blood pressure and increased abdominal obesity as risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease in individuals who are overweight.
La depresión o cambios anímicos también son comunes en mujeres con el síndrome. Si bien se requiere más investigación para averiguar sobre esta relación, hay muchos estudios que establecen una relación entre la depresión y la diabetes. Por lo tanto, con PCOS, es posible que la depresión esté relacionada a la resistencia de insulina. También puede ser resultado de desequilibrios hormonales y síntomas cosméticos del trastorno. El acné, la pérdida de cabello y otros síntomas de PCOS pueden disminuir la autoestima. La infertilidad y los abortos naturales también pueden ser estresantes. Los medicamentos que restablecen el equilibrio de los niveles hormonales o los antidepresivos pueden ayudar a sobrellevar estos sentimientos.
Kung gusto naman uminom ng gamot kasabay ang PCOS natural treatment na nabanggit, mayroon ring pwedeng ireseta ang doktor. Malamang, magbibigay siya ng contraceptives o birth control pills. Ang gamot na ito ay may lamang estrogen at progestin, kaya dadami ang female hormones sa katawan habang kakaunti ang male hormones. Makakatulong ang birth control pills hindi lamang sa pagiging regular ng dalas at dami ng pagregla, kung hindi pati na rin sa pagbabawas ng excessive bleeding, ng labis na hair growth, at ng acne.
On rare instances, if I'm in a dire hurry (of the 'ward rounds start in five minutes, I haven't had a single bite to eat since yesterday 1600 and my blood sugar is tanking like Luna's mu opioid receptors' kind), and the person in front of me is taking utter eternities to count out $3.50 for a shitty sandwich or whatever the fuck they bought, I sometimes just pay for my shit and theirs so that I can go to work and listen to the Munchie crop of the day. So I've known a few people who try to game people in a hurry by doing this counting out cash trick on them. At the same time I have been pretty dubious of Luna's stories and I think that almost all the time, it's a cover for stealing.

A su hija la han diagnosticado una afección llamada síndrome del ovario poliquístico ("PCOS", por sus siglas en inglés). El PCOS es un desequilibrio hormonal. Afecta los ovarios. Estos son los órganos que guardan los óvulos de la mujer. El PCOS posiblemente también altere el resto del cuerpo. Si se deja sin tratar, el PCOS puede ocasionar graves problemas de salud. El tratamiento no puede curar el problema, pero sí ayuda a reducir los síntomas y a evitar trastornos de salud.


Because of the menstrual and hormonal irregularities, infertility is common in women with PCOS. Because of the lack of ovulation, progesterone secretion in women with PCOS is diminished, leading to long-term unopposed estrogen stimulation of the uterine lining. This situation can lead to abnormal periods, breakthrough bleeding, or prolonged uterine bleeding. Unopposed estrogen stimulation of the uterus is also a risk factor for the development of endometrial hyperplasia and cancer of the endometrium (uterine lining). However, medications can be given to induce regular periods and reduce the estrogenic stimulation of the endometrium (see below).
No universal definition of insulin resistance exists and therefore no standard clinical technique to measure insulin resistance exists. Insulin resistance can be thought of as a metabolic state where normal glucose homeostasis mechanisms fail to operate properly. Translating theory to clinical practice has been a source of frustration for many practitioners. The American Diabetes Association has characterized IR as a state of impaired metabolic response to insulin[43]. IR is characterized by an inability of normal amounts of insulin to achieve the normal predicted response, often in the clinical setting of central adiposity. To achieve euglycemia, the pancreas over secretes insulin[44]. Investigators define IR based on hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp techniques as a state of impaired glucose disposal in response to insulin[22]. Despite no consensus, clamp techniques have become the reference for understanding IR.

130mg of methadone?!!!! That's 520mg morphine. That's an insane dosage even for someone with tolerance - I have been on high dose opioids for pain for a decade and I'm scraping 250mg morphine equivalent dose. For context: the equivalent fentanyl patch would be 250mcg per hour strong. Even people with severe pain from tumours get by on no more than 100-150mcg per hour.
Although the exact cause of PCOS is not known, there are several factors that are associated with the condition. It is closely linked to high levels of hormones such as insulin and testosterone, but it is not clear if this is a cause or an effect of the condition. Additionally, it appears to run in some families, which suggests that there may be a genetic link in the pathogenesis of the condition.

hello po nabasa kopo itong blog nyo. almost 1yr napo ako nag tetake ng Pills na nirekomenda po saken ng OBgyne doctor kopo. kase mo may PCOS po ako, kaso wala pong nangyayare, lalo pa po akong tumataba 🙁 eh samantalang 17 palang po ako. ano po ba magandang gawen? meron po ba akong pwedeng inumin na herbal medicine? Masydo napo kse akong matagal umiinom ng gamot baka po naman mag ka MAYOMA po ako tulad po ng lola ko 🙁 natatakot po ako, please help po doc-. thanks po
Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) If you like black tea but do not want caffeine, red raspberry leaf tea is a perfect pleasant tasting alternative. It is one of the most beloved herbs for women in traditional herbal medicine because it strengthens the female reproductive system on many levels. This herb can help stop heavy menstrual bleeding, is high in iron and can strengthen the lining of the uterus which can aid in conception for women with PCOS.

Some other blood tests are suggestive but not diagnostic. The ratio of LH (Luteinizing hormone) to FSH (Follicle-stimulating hormone), when measured in international units, is elevated in women with PCOS. Common cut-offs to designate abnormally high LH/FSH ratios are 2:1[66] or 3:1[62] as tested on Day 3 of the menstrual cycle. The pattern is not very sensitive; a ratio of 2:1 or higher was present in less than 50% of women with PCOS in one study.[66] There are often low levels of sex hormone-binding globulin,[62] in particular among obese or overweight women.[citation needed]
