This month, a groundbreaking study was published in the journal Nature Medicine that might have found a treatment for this disorder. The research was lead by Dr. Paolo Giacobini at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. The authors’ goal was to determine if something in the environment of the womb could be causing PCOS. We have known for awhile that PCOS runs in families (so if your mother or sister has PCOS, you may be more likely to have PCOS because you share genes that are associated with the disorder) but there don’t seem to be enough carriers of these genes to explain the high prevalence of PCOS (again, 10% of women!).
Na nakakaapekto sa isa sa 10 mga kababaihan ng childbearing edad, ang polycystic ovarian sindrom ay nagiging mas at mas karaniwang mga araw na ito. Kung magdusa ka mula sa ito, alam sa iyo nang eksakto kung paano ito ailment maaaring makaapekto sa iyong pisikal at mental na estado. Habang pagpipilian sa paggamot na inirerekomenda ng mga doktor ay madalas na kung ano ang resort namin sa, maaari rin naming magbigay ng ilang mga remedyo sa bahay ng isang subukan sa paggamot sa ito kalagayan.

Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) This is a common herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and has been called the herbal form of Metformin.3 It is an anti-diabetic that is characterized by insulin modulating activity which means it regulates insulin levels while controlling sugar or carbohydrate cravings. Gymnema actually numbs the sweet taste areas of the taste buds which helps suppress appetite. Some research has indicated that this herb might stimulate production of cells in the pancreas which in turn increases the levels of insulin in the body.
“Often times the cosmetic issues are huge, depending on the severity. When you summarize the typical PCOS patient as someone who is fat, has acne, and male-pattern baldness, that is definitely depressing, but that in and of itself is not enough to cause depression,” she said. “It’s the hormonal imbalances that have a real neurobiological affect on the brain and we have evidence that the excess of androgens in women is definitely linked to depression.”

The principle infertility treatment initially includes preconception guidelines and the use of drugs to induce mono- or bifollicular ovulation. Other therapeutic modalities may also be employed, such as exogenous gonadotropins or laparoscopic ovarian drilling, which are considered to be second-line treatments, or in vitro fertilization (IVF), which is a third-line treatment 9. Thus, the choice of the most appropriate treatment depends on the patient's age, presence of other factors associated with infertility, experience and duration of previous treatments and the level of anxiety of the couple.
Due to the high cost of the procedure, the need for hospitalization, general anesthesia and higher complications risks, ovarian drilling presents low cost effectiveness compared with gonadotropin plus timed intercourse. Moreover, the lack of standardization of the surgical technique and the absence of studies that have evaluated the repercussions of long-term of ovarian drilling demonstrate that this procedure should not be routinely performed but should only be considered as second line of therapy in women with PCOS who will be undergoing laparoscopy for another reason (adnexal mass or pelvic pain, for example). Additionally, ovarian drilling could be an alternative before the assisted reproduction treatment (ART) in individuals without financial conditions for the realization of ART and those who are resistant to CC.
2. Oestrogen receptor binding affinity for Cimicifuga racemosa was studied using pituitary cell cultures from ovariectomised rats. This study followed a clinical study demonstrating significantly lowered LH in post-menopausal women following administration of Cimicifuga racemosa (2 mg for two months) against placebo control (n = 110) [45] 2. Increases luteal progesterone concentration [65, 67, 68]
 PCOS seems to be inherited. Female relatives or children of patients with PCOS are at increased risk for having PCOS. Environmental risk factors, including low birth weight, rapid weight gain in infancy, early pubic hair and puberty development, childhood obesity, excess adult weight, and unhealthy lifestyle, are also important and may interact with genes to lead to PCOS (called epigenetics). 

Clinical investigations found no adverse effects for the six herbal medicines included in this review (Table 2). A comparative study investigating the pharmaceutical Bromocriptine and the herbal medicine Vitex agnus-castus found no side effects associated Vitex agnus-ca stus compared to 12.5% of participants taking Bromocriptine reporting nausea and vomiting [63]. No studies comparing the effectiveness for herbal medicines and the oral contraceptive pill in PCOS, oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism were found.
May mga kababaihan na hindi naman nababagay sa oral contraceptive pills na may magkasamang estrogen at progestin. Ang alternatibong reseta ng doktor dito ay progesterone (tulad ng Provera).  Ito ay iniinom sa sampu hanggang labing-apat na araw kada isa hanggang tatlong buwan. Nakakatulong ito para magkaregla ang babae para maiwasan ang kanser sa lining ng matres (endometrial cancer) pero walang epekto ito sa taghiyawat at sobrang buhok. Puwede ring mabuntis kung ito ang iniinom na gamot.

In vitro fertilization represents the third-line treatment for infertility in women with PCOS 9. However, if the initial assessment demonstrates a bilateral tubal occlusion and/or concentration of recovered motile sperm less than or equal to 5 million, this treatment becomes the first option along with lifestyle changes. The risk of OHSS is the main complication of the highly complexity treatment in women with PCOS. Thus, to minimize this side effect, ovarian stimulation should be initiated with low doses of gonadotropins (100 to 150 IU of FSHr) and the pituitary should be suppressed with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist because this method is associated with a reduced risk of OHSS compared with an agonist (29 randomized control trials (RCTs); OR 0.43; 95% CI: 0.33 to 0.57) 32. If the patient presents with clinical and ultrasound signs of OHSS, final oocyte maturation should be performed with a GnRH agonist and embryos should be frozen and transferred in a subsequent cycle 33,34. Infertile women with PCOS may present with better general oocyte and embryo quality rates; however, the clinical pregnancy and live birth rates are similar to those observed in normo-ovulatory women without PCOS 35.

i'm guessing Luna knows two different Pats. one Pat is Patricia Allen, the one who is rlyblonde' mom who has also been buying her groceries and shit. and the other Pat is the woman with cancer. but i don't know. i just don't think rlyblonde's mom is the same pat as the cancer pat, i haven't seen anything that would insinuate Patricia Allen once had cancer or worked with Luna


My brother was a Heroin addict who started taking Benzos between his shooting up, like Luna, versus the other way around. He was an addict, he took benzos to keep up whatever feeling he was chasing. Thats inherently different than an anxiety or depression patient taking them for relief of symptoms. Im sure it does happen, there's always that risk but I wouldn't go out there and say that Benzo use is always a gateway.
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]
Dok. Magandang tanghali po. May PCOS din po ako. 19 years old po ako nung nalaman kong may sakit akong Polycystic. Nagkaroon po ako ng kalive in nun dati aman po e okay yung regla ko tas nung nagsasama na kami nung bf ko hndi na ko nagkakameron akala namin buntis ako 1year akong hndi niregla nun. Hiwalay na kami ng ka live in ko ngayon . Niresetahan ako ng doktor ko ng Provera 5 days kong iinumin tas magtake din daw ako ng althea pills pag nagkaregla na. Okay aman sya nagkakaregla naman na ako. Kaso lang pahinto hinto yung pag inom ko kasi mejjo mahal yung pills . At dahil nga pahinto hinto yung pag inom ko ng pills hndi na din ako nagkakamens . Kaya nagtatake ulit ako ng provera.
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).
Aunque el síndrome de ovario poliquístico (que antes se llamaba "síndrome de Stein-Leventhal") se identificó por primera vez en la década de los años treinta del siglo XX, los médicos todavía no conocen sus causas con certeza. Las investigaciones sugieren que puede estar relacionado con un aumento de la fabricación de insulina en el cuerpo. Las mujeres con síndrome de ovario poliquístico es posible que produzcan demasiada insulina, lo que estimula a sus ovarios a liberar un exceso de hormonas masculinas. El síndrome de ovario poliquístico parece darse por familias, de modo que si lo padece alguna pariente tuya, tú podrías ser proclive a desarrollarlo.
>>411167 Tuna if she got sent this: "someone drew me and my mans. my heart is truly filled with love. Currently eating ice cream the snails sadly got into, just eating around the slime lol. Matthew's leg is healing and just fell asleep cuddling the snails, he cried when I let them go and said he truly loved my big heart. heading to my evil dads lol wish me luck. at least I can try out my new lipstick for the trainride. Eating the non-slime ice cream until I fall into a peaceful sleep. just trying my best <3"
For women who desire pregnancy, a medication called clomiphene (Clomid) can be used to induce ovulation (cause egg production). In addition, weight loss can normalize menstrual cycles and often increases the possibility of pregnancy in women with PCOS. Other, more aggressive, treatments for infertility (including injection of gonadotropin hormones and assisted reproductive technologies) may also be required in women who desire pregnancy and do not become pregnant on Clomid therapy.
The cysts (fluid filled sacs) in the ovaries can be identified with imaging technology. (However, as noted above, women without PCOS can have many cysts as well.) Ultrasound , which passes sound waves through the body to create a picture of the kidneys, is used most often to look for cysts in the ovaries. Ultrasound imaging employs no injected dyes or radiation and is safe for all patients including pregnant women. It can also detect cysts in the kidneys of a fetus. Because women without PCOS can have ovarian cysts , and because ovarian cysts are not part of the definition of PCOS, ultrasound is not routinely ordered to diagnose PCOS. The diagnosis is usually a clinical one based on the patient's history, physical examination, and laboratory testing.
was on a high dose of seroquel for schizoaffective (ended up going off and trying other antipsychotics) but basically i acted like a narcoleptic. i'd fall asleep in the middle of class without warning or i'd fall asleep during a ten min car ride. i was just constantly asleep and it wasnt a peaceful sleep either it was like dead sleep and i woke up feeling shitty. also like all antipsychotics make you gain weight but sometimes it's not more than 10 lbs or so so maybe between that and heroin thats why tuna's not gaining much weight?

When the former NFL cheerleader Natalie Nirchi stopped menstruating at age 17, she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormone disorder affecting up to 10 percent of women of reproductive age. She didn’t initially show any of the physical symptoms, like excess hair growth, cystic acne, or obesity, but a blood test revealed that she had high levels of testosterone and an ultrasound showed cysts on her ovaries.
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.
A majority of women with PCOS have insulin resistance and/or are obese. Their elevated insulin levels contribute to or cause the abnormalities seen in the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis that lead to PCOS. Hyperinsulinemia increases GnRH pulse frequency, LH over FSH dominance, increased ovarian androgen production, decreased follicular maturation, and decreased SHBG binding. Furthermore, excessive insulin, acting through its cognate receptor in the presence of component cAMP signalling, upregulates 17α-hydroxylase activity via PI3K, 17α-hydroxylase activity being responsible for synthesising androgen precursors. The combined effects of hyperinsulinemia contribute to an increased risk of PCOS.[42] Insulin resistance is a common finding among women with a normal weight as well as overweight women.[10][17][21]
