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.
Debido a los cambios hormonales, las mujeres con PCOS tienen un mayor riesgo de desarrollar ciertas afecciones de salud serias como la diabetes tipo 2, la hipertensión (presión arterial alta) y trastornos del corazón y los vasos sanguíneos. A menudo, las mujeres con PCOS tienen problemas de fertilidad. Es decir, la capacidad para quedar embarazadas.
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.
If a woman's weight is excessive, the physician should be aggressive in championing a weight-loss program. Medications effective for weight loss (in addition to lifestyle modifications) that have been specifically studied in women with PCOS include metformin, acarbose, sibutramine, and orlistat (Xenical). Metformin is probably the first-line medication for obesity or weight reduction in patients with PCOS. Metformin results in a decrease in body mass index (BMI) of 1 to 2 kg per m2 or weight loss up to 6 lb, 10 oz to 8 lb, 13 oz (3 to 4 kg)10,46,49; acarbose results in an approximate 3 kg per m2 decrease in BMI24; sibutramine results in a decrease in BMI of 5.8 kg per m2 and weight loss of 31 lb, 11 oz (14.4 kg)26; and orlistat results in weight loss of approximately 11 lb (5 kg).50 However, a recent systematic review suggested that metformin is not effective for lowering BMI in patients with PCOS.1
The differential diagnosis of PCOS is broad and includes both endocrinologic and malignant etiologies. Figure 119 provides an algorithm for the workup of select presentations. For any woman with suspected PCOS, the Endocrine Society recommends excluding pregnancy, thyroid dysfunction, hyperprolactinemia, and nonclassical congenital adrenal hyperplasia.19 Depending on presentation, conditions such as hypothalamic amenorrhea and primary ovarian insufficiency should also be excluded. In women with rapid symptom onset or significant virilization, such as deepening voice or clitoromegaly, an androgen-secreting tumor should be ruled out. Finally, Cushing syndrome or acromegaly should be excluded in patients with physical findings that suggest either condition.19 There is no need to order laboratory testing for these conditions if the patient does not have suggestive physical findings.
Mammalian ovary development undergoes important changes during the perinatal period, moment when follicles are assembled and start to develop in a process not well known, involving endocrine and paracrine factors. In order to investigate the effect of two different hormonal environments on the early development of the ovary, we used an autologous transplant model in which Syrian hamster fetal ovaries were grafted under the kidney capsule of males hosts previously unilaterally or bilaterally orchidectomized. After 35 days of graft, ovaries and kidney parenchyme of the host male did not present signs of rejection. Ovaries contained primordial, primary follicles, secondary follicles and few tertiary follicles with morphological features similar to ovaries of control females of 35 days of age. Healthy primary and secondary follicles of experimental groups had frequency distribution and size similar to control ovaries but tertiary follicles were scarce in control as well as in grafts where they were mainly atretic. PCNA, marker of proliferation, was immuno detected in granulosa cells of growing follicles and the marker of apoptosis, Caspase 3 active, was evident mainly in secondary follicles. Immunoreactivity for steroidogenic proteins, StAR, 3-βHSD and aromatase detected in the follicular wall cells and the decreased serum levels of FSH without important changes in testosterone in bilateral orchidectomized males that received ovarian graft, and testosterone decreased without changes in FSH levels in unilateral orchidectomized males (UO) with ovarian graft, all together suggest the effect of steroid hormones produced by the ovary. In conclusion, the experimental model of autologous transplant presents evidence of early ovary development under the kidney capsule and its functional integration to the endocrine axis of the host male.
Ano nga ba ang PCOS? Ito ay isang hormonal disorder kung saan nagkakaroon ang babae ng mga maliliit na cyst sa kanyang obaryo. Naglalaman ang mga cyst na ito ng mga immature egg cells na hindi kayang mag-trigger ng proseso ng obulasyon. Ibig sabihin, bababa ang lebel ng female hormones tulad ng estrogen at progesterone, at tataas ang lebel ng male hormones katulad ng androgen. Ang imbalance na ito ay magdadala ng iba’t ibang sintomas at epekto sa katawan.
The unfortunate truth is that there is no cure for PCOS. But because the disorder can have a profound effect on your health and well-being, treatment is a must. There is one important thing to know about your options: Because the cause of PCOS is still unknown, appropriate therapies are based on a woman’s individual concerns. Is she bothered most about excess hair growth? Does she want to have a baby? Does she need to get her periods back on track?

This led the researchers to experiment with blocking the body from responding to this excess GnRH. They treated a separate group of pregnant mice with AMH but also another drug that blocks the body from responding to the higher levels of GnRH (called a “GnRH antagonist”). They followed the daughter pups born to these mothers, and turns out they didn’t develop PCOS-like symptoms! They also wanted to see if they could give GnRH antagonist to daughter pups who had already developed PCOS-like symptoms (because their mothers only received high levels of AMH while pregnant). After treatment with the GnRH antagonist, the daughter pups’ hormone levels started to normalize and they ovulated more than those who didn’t get the antagonist treatment.

AQUA LUNA is just a few steps from the historical centre of Riga, in the quiet Andrejsala area. An old port where abandoned warehouses of imperial times are located next to a modern yacht-club, fashionable restaurants and night clubs, Andrejsala first became a popular leisure area for independent youth and bohemia, and more recently for high society and the wealthy. Industrial port buildings and the urban landscape add a special romanticism and piquancy to the area, which in the evenings becomes a centre of entertainment in Riga.

PCOS contribuye a equilibrar los niveles hormonales, ayudando por ejemplo a la regulación de los ciclos y disminuyendo visiblemente otros síntomas como el crecimiento de vello o el acné. Ten en cuenta que el vello que ya tenías no desaparecerá por sí mismo aunque regules tus niveles hormonales, pero sí que se atenuará el ritmo con el que sale el vello y podrás recurrir a métodos para eliminar el que quede, como por ejemplo la depilación láser.
This study synthesises the evidence for reproductive endocrine effects for six whole herbal medicine extracts that may be used to treat PCOS and associated oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism. The findings were intended to add to clinicians understanding for the mechanisms of action for herbal medicine for treatment in these common conditions and reveal herbal medicines with reproductive endocrinological effects, currently demonstrated in scientific literature.
Vitamins, supplements, and other complementary treatments are popular among women with PCOS. Researchers are studying the effectiveness of such treatments. Popular treatments include cinnamon, myo-inositol, vitamin D, B complex vitamins, and acupuncture We hope to share and explain the evidence for these and other treatments and well as research findings as they develop.

Any lawfags here that can help us out understanding this? From what I roughly gather he's only had Pre-Arraignment so today would be a formal Arraignment deciding whether or not to ask for bail. But his court info says he's already been given ROR so it seems pointless now to come back and decide whether or not to ask for bail or take him to Rikers.
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].
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.
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.

Your doctor may recommend weight loss through a low-calorie diet combined with moderate exercise activities. Even a modest reduction in your weight — for example, losing 5 percent of your body weight — might improve your condition. Losing weight may also increase the effectiveness of medications your doctor recommends for PCOS, and can help with infertility.
Los ovarios de la mujer tienen folículos, que son los sacos diminutos y llenos de líquido que contienen los óvulos. Cuando el óvulo madura, el folículo lo libera para que pueda desplazarse al útero para la fertilización. En mujeres con el síndrome, los folículos inmaduros se agrupan y forman quistes o bultos grandes. Los óvulos maduran con los grupos de folículos, pero los folículos no se abren para liberarlos.
Acne: Birth-control pills, anti-androgen drugs and insulin-sensitizing drugs, all mentioned above, can bring the severe acne of PCOS under control by reducing the high levels of male hormones that trigger bad break-outs in PCOS. In addition, your family doctor or dermatologist may recommend additional acne medications to unclog pores, control skin bacteria and soothe inflammation. These may include retinoids, antibiotics, and products to help unclog pores. One warning: Retinoids can cause birth defects and cannot be used if you are already pregnant or are planning to become pregnant.

A veces los síntomas del SOP son claros, a veces son menos obvios. Quizás visite a un dermatólogo (médico de la piel) por acné o crecimiento del vello, a un ginecólogo (médico que trata las afecciones médicas de las mujeres y de los órganos reproductivos femeninos) por periodos mensuales irregulares y a su médico de familia por aumento de peso, sin darse cuenta de que todos los síntomas son parte del SOP. Algunas mujeres con SOP tendrán solo un síntoma; otras los tendrán todos. Las mujeres de todas las razas y grupos étnicos pueden presentar SOP.
An animal study compared the effectiveness of Cinnamomum cassia and the pharmaceutical Metformin on hormone concentration in rats with PCOS [48] (Table 1). Both interventions demonstrated significant improvements compared to controls at 15 days for measures of testosterone ng/ml (control 0.747 ± 0.039; metformin 0.647 ± 0.027; Cinnamomum cassia 0.625 ± 0.029); LH ng/ml (control 7.641 ± 0.267; metformin 6.873 ± 0.214; Cinnamomum cassia 6.891 ± 0.221) and insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) (control 10.018 ± 0.217; metformin 7.067 ± 0.184 Cinnamomum cassia 8.772 ± 0.196) (p < 0.05) [48]. The metabolic effects for Cinnamomum cassia were further demonstrated in overweight women with oligo/amenorrhoea and PCOS in a placebo controlled RCT [66] (Table 2). However, although the RCT had low risks for bias, it was a pilot study primarily investigating feasibility. Outcomes were promising for metabolic profile in PCOS however the sample size was small and the authors recommended further studies.

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.
Have you all forgotten that she has her own fucking name tattooed on herself? She's a vain bitch, she just says that she finds herself ugly to get compliments. Also, she doesn't really want your advice, she just wants your pity and money. I have no sympathy for her, and even though I don't actively participate in the nitpicking most times, I think it's fair game. If she really wanted to get better, she wouldn't have dropped that therapy group as soon as she realized that it isn't fun to go through therapy.
i wonder if luna's dad knows about how much she complains about him. all he would have to do is google her name to see how much she hates him. if i were her dad and i saw the shit she says about me, i'd kick her to the curb. poor dude is letting her have what she wants, when she wants it, and she STILL talks about him like he's a monster. maybe he's a piece of shit but damn, at least he's trying. what an ungrateful brat
First-line medical therapy usually consists of an oral contraceptive to induce regular menses. The contraceptive not only inhibits ovarian androgen production but also increases sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) production. ACOG recommends use of combination low-dose hormonal contraceptive agents for long-term management of menstrual dysfunction. [3] If symptoms such as hirsutism are not sufficiently alleviated, an androgen-blocking agent may be added. Pregnancy should be excluded before therapy with oral contraceptives or androgen-blocking agents is started.
For some, lifestyle changes may be all you need to control the symptoms of your PCOS. But for many other women, medications may be necessary to help control harder to manage symptoms, such as fertility, and major risk factors that arise with polycystic ovary syndrome, specifically insulin resistance that leads to diabetes and high blood cholesterol that may end up developing into heart disease.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), also known by the name Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is a hormonal problem that causes women to have a variety of symptoms. It should be noted that most women with the condition have a number of small cysts in the ovaries. However, women may have cysts in the ovaries for a number of reasons, and it is the characteristic constellation of symptoms, rather than the presence of the cysts themselves, that is important in establishing the PCOS diagnosis.
there is no "trial" lmao. you would have flown out for nothing. it's a two minute thing, TOPS. he probably got appointed a public defender today. or maybe not even appointed one, just applied to be appointed one. the first or second time they just ask you to bring in paperwork proving you're poor and need a public defender. when you do get one, the lawyer just keeps adjourning it, like six or more times usually. then you're asked to get into a program or a detox or whatever. at the end he might get probation. each court appearance is less than 5 minutes long.

Two laboratory based RCT’s examined the effects of Tribulus Terrestris in rats with polycystic ovaries induced with oestradiol valerate [46, 47] (Table 1). Both studies demonstrate significantly improved ovulation rates for animals treated with two doses of Tribulus terrestris extracts compared to controls. Although the endocrinological effects were not described in either study, laboratory findings of ovulation induction are supported by the clinical findings of elevated FSH following treatment with Tribulus terrestris[56] (Table 2).

Niveles elevados de insulina. La insulina es una hormona que contribuye en el procesamiento de los alimentos hasta convertirlos en energía. La resistencia a la insulina se da cuando las células corporales no responden normalmente a la insulina. Como consecuencia, los niveles de insulina en sangre están más elevados de lo normal. Muchas mujeres con SOP tienen resistencia a la insulina, en especial aquellas con sobrepeso y obesidad, que tienen hábitos alimenticios poco saludables, no realizan suficiente actividad física o tienen antecedentes familiares de diabetes (por lo general, diabetes tipo 2). Con el paso del tiempo, la resistencia a la insulina puede desencadenar diabetes tipo 2.
Randomisation for 206 women 12 were excluded due to failure to respond (treatment group n = 7, control n = 5). 2. Endometrial thickness monitored by ultrasound. Endometrial thickness in the clomiphene alone group was 8.5 mm (±1.9) compared to 12.9 (±2.3) in the clomiphene plus Cimicifuga racemosa group (p < 0.001). The miscarriage rate per pregnancy for the clomiphene alone group was 5 out of 33 (15.2%) and 6 out of 71 (8.5%) in the clomiphene plus Cimicifuga racemosa group.

Key terms for the first search included: title or abstract CONTAINS ‘herbal medicine’ OR ‘herbal extract*’ OR ‘phytotherapy’ OR ‘botanical’ AND title or abstract CONTAINS ‘androgen*’ OR ‘oestrogen*’OR ‘follicle stimulating hormone’ OR ‘luteinising hormone’ OR ‘prolactin’ OR ‘insulin’ OR ‘glucose’ OR ‘polycystic ‘ovar*’. Search terms for the second search included the following key words in the title or abstract, CONTAINS; ‘menstrual irregularity’ OR ‘oligomenorrhoea’ OR ‘amenorrhoea’ OR ‘hyperandrogenism’ OR ‘hirsutism’ OR ‘acne’, OR ‘polycystic ovary syndrome’ OR ‘PCOS’ OR ‘polycystic ovar*’ OR ‘oligo-ovulation’ OR ‘anovulation’ OR ‘fertility’ OR ‘infertility’ OR ‘pregnancy’ AND ten herbal medicines identified from the laboratory search; ‘Cimicifuga racemosa’ OR ‘Cinnamomum cassia’ OR ‘Curcuma longa’ OR ‘Glycyrrhiza ‘ OR Matricaria chamomilla OR ‘Mentha piperita’ OR ‘Paeonia lactiflora’ OR ‘Silybum marianum’ OR ‘Tribulus terrestris’ OR ‘Vitex agnus-castus’. Truncation was used to capture plural key words and synonyms, and acronyms were used for some hormones (FSH and LH).
Other excluded studies investigated the herbal medicines included in this review examining conditions other than PCOS, oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism. These included investigations into effectiveness for Vitex agnus-castus for pre-menstrual syndrome [92–97] and mastalgia [98, 99], Cimicifuga racemosa for menopausal symptoms [100] and Glycyrrhiza spp with Paeonia lactiflora libido in males [101].
PCOS is the most common hormone disorder in women and one of the leading causes of infertility, affecting roughly 5-10% of women of childbearing age. The condition can affect girls as young as 11. Because the signs and symptoms often seem unrelated and the diagnostic criteria are not yet clear, most women are not diagnosed until they are in their 20's or 30's. It appears to run in families. Women with sisters who have PCOS are twice as likely to have the condition.
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.

Nope, it was definitely her, I can't forget it. On tumblr sometime earlier last year she kept posting these depressed frantic posts about that sad disgusting old crackhead guy she loves so much and is like her only family. hes always so sick and slowly dying, she felt responsible for not being able to provide for or truly help him like he "helped" her (i suspect he just gives her drugs). there was a pic of the ambulance, her crying in the ER, and the huge bill and everything. she deleted everything within hours of posting, I guessed it was the embarrassment, but those went around in reblogs for a long time. She's always covered in a layer of filth and on her tumblr there was a pic of her doing drugs outside in the winter wearing a holey mini skirt with freshly open track marks on a swingset with a caption like "I can't even get high anymore but I'm scared withdrawal would kill me". It just made me wanna cry and I gave her the $5 even though I knew she would just use it for more drugs. Is that enabling?
Progestin therapy. Taking progestin for 10 to 14 days every one to two months can regulate your periods and protect against endometrial cancer. Progestin therapy doesn't improve androgen levels and won't prevent pregnancy. The progestin-only minipill or progestin-containing intrauterine device is a better choice if you also wish to avoid pregnancy.
Píldoras anticonceptivas orales. Contienen una combinación de hormonas femeninas. Estas pastillas pueden ayudar a normalizar el equilibrio de las hormonas y reducir o eliminar los síntomas. Esto reduce el riesgo de cáncer de endometrio para cuando la joven sea mayor. (No es necesario que una adolescente mantenga relaciones sexuales activas para tomar anticonceptivos orales).
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.

For once the shirt she's wearing looks clean.Maybe she's lucid enough to get some washing done although thats a far fetched theory. Also, I've tried following Luna on instagram to keep up with milk using two different accounts and she has declined both requests. With one being my art account I assumed that wouldn't look too sus. Is she very picky when it comes to who she lets follow her?


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.
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
Weight loss achieved through dietary changes and exercise can help women with PCOS in several ways. Like men and women without PCOS, losing weight reduces a person's risk of cardiovascular disease and non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes. Weight loss also helps to lower the level of insulin in the body which, in turn, reduces the ovaries' production of testosterone.
If he was using heroin very heavily, that may well be his starting methadone dose (or close to it.) Methadone has a long half life while heroin has a short one, so avoiding withdrawals can take a lot of methadone, initially. Methadone clinics aren't going to leave someone on a high dose though. They'll titrate up until withdrawal subsides, then taper down over time. I'm guessing he started at the clinic around when he got busted, so it's sus af to me that he'd still be taking 130mg. Or that he ever was. Maybe 100. Possibly.

Palm jaggery o palm asukal ay itinuturing na isang malusog na pagpipilian kaysa sa regular na puting asukal dahil sa pagmamay-ari nito upang kontrolin insulin at asukal sa dugo antas. Ito rin ay nagtataglay ng isang mababang glycemic index at magpapalaki enerhiya na antas. Ang mas mataas na mga antas ng insulin ay karaniwan sa mga PCOS pasyente, at ito hindi nilinis uri ng jaggery (o asukal) ay maaaring makabuluhang epekto sa iyong kalusugan kapag isinama sa iyong diyeta.
If a woman's weight is excessive, the physician should be aggressive in championing a weight-loss program. Medications effective for weight loss (in addition to lifestyle modifications) that have been specifically studied in women with PCOS include metformin, acarbose, sibutramine, and orlistat (Xenical). Metformin is probably the first-line medication for obesity or weight reduction in patients with PCOS. Metformin results in a decrease in body mass index (BMI) of 1 to 2 kg per m2 or weight loss up to 6 lb, 10 oz to 8 lb, 13 oz (3 to 4 kg)10,46,49; acarbose results in an approximate 3 kg per m2 decrease in BMI24; sibutramine results in a decrease in BMI of 5.8 kg per m2 and weight loss of 31 lb, 11 oz (14.4 kg)26; and orlistat results in weight loss of approximately 11 lb (5 kg).50 However, a recent systematic review suggested that metformin is not effective for lowering BMI in patients with PCOS.1

In addition to assessing signs and symptoms of PCOS, medical providers take a medical history, perform a physical exam, and check blood hormone levels (including testosterone). They may also perform an ovarian ultrasound. Other tests looking for complication of PCOS may also be done, such as glucose tolerance test or a mental health screening survey. 
i would suggest researching a bit online. but from my experience working in treatment centers yes, meth has foul chemicals. when they first come in and are detoxing from it addicts smell like chemical and ammonia. there are so many foul and unnatural things in it it reeks havoc on the human body. i know she mentioned crack but i don't think we have any real proof luna has ever used meth.
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].
Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrinopathy among reproductive-aged women in the United States, affecting approximately 7% of female patients. Although the pathophysiology of the syndrome is complex and there is no single defect from which it is known to result, it is hypothesized that insulin resistance is a key factor. Metabolic syndrome is twice as common in patients with polycystic ovary syndrome compared with the general population, and patients with polycystic ovary syndrome are four times more likely than the general population to develop type 2 diabetes mellitus. Patient presentation is variable, ranging from asymptomatic to having multiple gynecologic, dermatologic, or metabolic manifestations. Guidelines from the Endocrine Society recommend using the Rotterdam criteria for diagnosis, which mandate the presence of two of the following three findings—hyperandrogenism, ovulatory dysfunction, and polycystic ovaries—plus the exclusion of other diagnoses that could result in hyperandrogenism or ovulatory dysfunction. It is reasonable to delay evaluation for polycystic ovary syndrome in adolescent patients until two years after menarche. For this age group, it is also recommended that all three Rotterdam criteria be met before the diagnosis is made. Patients who have marked virilization or rapid onset of symptoms require immediate evaluation for a potential androgen-secreting tumor. Treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome is individualized based on the patient's presentation and desire for pregnancy. For patients who are overweight, weight loss is recommended. Clomiphene and letrozole are first-line medications for infertility. Metformin is the first-line medication for metabolic manifestations, such as hyperglycemia. Hormonal contraceptives are first-line therapy for irregular menses and dermatologic manifestations.

The prevalence of depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is high; a study has shown it to be four times that of women without PCOS. Therefore, systematic evaluation of the effectiveness and safety of antidepressants for women with PCOS is important. We found no evidence to support the use or non‐use of antidepressants in women with PCOS, with or without depression. Well‐designed and well‐conducted randomised controlled trials with double blinding should be conducted.
