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. Seroquel doesn't have a 'noticeable effect on your perception of reality'. I don't know where you get that shit but seriously, it just knock you out cold. There's no high like in benzos, there's no euphoria like in ambien. You take it and either you are sedated if the dosage is mild or you pass out if it's too much. It's supposed to calm you down and turn you in a zombie. But again, it's not the sedation you get on benzos. It's not enjoyable, you feel shitty and slow. Nobody would take that to be high, you don't feel relaxed, ffs.
Paeonia lactiflora combined with Cinnamomum cassia in a preparation called Unkei-to was investigated in an in-vitro study for ovarian production of 17-beta-oestradiol and progesterone, [42] (Table 1). Granulosa cells obtained from women undergoing IVF were examined for steroid hormone concentration following incubation with different doses over 48 hours. Oestradiol was significantly increased (p < 0.01) following exposure to doses of 0.3 ug/ml of Unkei-to. Supporting clinical evidence was found in one clinical trial of 157 infertile women aged 17–29 years, including a subgroup of 42 women with hyper-functioning (PCOS) oligo/amenorrhoea. Treatment with Unkei-to, 7.5 grams per day for eight weeks, demonstrated significant reductions of mean LH in the PCOS sub-group of 49.7% (±15.3). Ovulation was confirmed in 30 out of 42 oligo/amenorrheic women [57] (Table 1). Limitations however include findings based on sub-group comparisons without description of subgroup baseline characteristics (other than oligomenorrhoea). Although the same aqueous extract intervention was investigated in pre-clinical and clinical studies, it contained additional herbal extracts and it was irrational to attribute hormonal effects to Paeonia lactiflora and Cinnamomum cassia.
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker associated with adverse cardiovascular events, and women with newly diagnosed PCOS appear to have significantly elevated MPV levels. [47] Kabil Kucur et al reported that use of ethinyl estradiol/cyproterone acetate or metformin for the treatment of women with PCOS seemed to have similar beneficial effects in reducing MPV. [47]
Hirsutism: On the complete other end of the spectrum as hair loss, women who have hirsutism experience excess hair growth in oftentimes very noticeable places, such as their face, chest, and back. This is also a very embarrassing issue for women to cope with in their daily life. According to research experts, “hirsutism appears to be strongly related with hyperandrogenism (imbalance of male sex hormones) and metabolic abnormalities in PCOS women.”4

Nung high school pa po kc ako nkaranas na ako ng di nireregla at 5months po un .. Anu po pwede kung gawin?
Hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp techniques rely on an intravenous insulin infusion to maintain steady serum glucose concentrations at fasting levels to measure glucose uptake. Lower glucose uptake signifies resistance to insulin action (i.e. IR). Since the technique requires intravenous infusions, frequent blood sampling, extensive time and significant financial resources, it is experimentally useful but clinically cumbersome[45]. Clamp studies in PCOS women show conflicting results; some studies show IR only in obese PCOS women[46] and others demonstrate IR in lean PCOS patients[47]. Of importance, the studies which failed to demonstrate IR in lean PCOS women did, however, demonstrate elevated basal insulin levels compared to weight matched, non PCOS controls[46]. Other sophisticated testing methods using intravenous infusions of insulin have been attempted (insulin sensitivity test and insulin tolerance test) but they do not alleviate the time, financial and testing burdens to make them relevant for widespread clinical practice and normal cutoffs are not widely disseminated[45]. Clamp techniques have been used as comparisons to validate other modes of assessment of IR.

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.
Diagnosis can generally be accomplished with a careful history, physical examination, and basic laboratory testing, without the need for ultrasonography or other imaging. Hyperandrogenism can be diagnosed clinically by the presence of excessive acne, androgenic alopecia, or hirsutism (terminal hair in a male-pattern distribution); or chemically, by elevated serum levels of total, bioavailable, or free testosterone or dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate.23 Measurement of androgen levels is helpful in the rare occasion that an androgen-secreting tumor is suspected (e.g., when a patient has marked virilization or rapid onset of symptoms associated with PCOS).
Metformin has been tested in combination with cholesterol lowering medications. Pretreatment of obese PCOS patients with atorvastatin (20 mg per day for 3 mo) followed by 3 mo of metformin (1500 mg per day) resulted in more effective lowering of HOMA-IR than metformin alone[80]. Other similar data show that combined treatment with metformin and atorvastatin compared to metformin alone produced similar but significant improvements in IR. Combination therapy only showed successful reduction of hyperandrogenism and not IR[81].
Fertilización in vitro (FIV). La FIV puede ser una opción en caso de que los medicamentos no funcionen. En una FIV, se fecunda tu óvulo con el esperma de tu pareja en un laboratorio y luego se lo implanta en tu útero para que se desarrolle. En comparación con los medicamentos, la FIV tiene mayores tasas de embarazo y mejor control sobre tu riesgo de tener mellizos y trillizos (al permitir que tu médico transfiera un solo óvulo fertilizado en el útero).
La metformina, un medicamento que se utiliza para tratar la diabetes, puede reducir la concentración de la insulina en sangre. A algunas chicas con síndrome de ovario poliquístico, les puede ayudar a controlar la ovulación y la concentración de andrógenos, lo que puede contribuir a regularizar el ciclo menstrual. Algunas adolescentes y mujeres de más edad tratadas con metformina también experimentan pérdida de peso y reducción de la hipertensión.

Though surgery is not commonly performed, the polycystic ovaries can be treated with a laparoscopic procedure called "ovarian drilling" (puncture of 4–10 small follicles with electrocautery, laser, or biopsy needles), which often results in either resumption of spontaneous ovulations[74] or ovulations after adjuvant treatment with clomiphene or FSH.[citation needed] (Ovarian wedge resection is no longer used as much due to complications such as adhesions and the presence of frequently effective medications.) There are, however, concerns about the long-term effects of ovarian drilling on ovarian function.[74]

When the syndrome was first described in 1935 by American gynecologists Irving Stein, and Michael Leventhal, it was considered a rare disorder. Today as many as five million women in the United States may be affected, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, but researchers are still just beginning to uncover the disorder’s full impact.

Antiandrogens, such as spironolactone, are effective for hirsutism. [79] Spironolactone (50-100 mg twice daily) is an effective primary therapy for hirsutism. Because of the potential teratogenic effects of spironolactone, patients require an effective form of contraception (eg, an oral contraceptive). Adverse effects of spironolactone include gastrointestinal discomfort and irregular menstrual bleeding, which can be managed by adding an oral contraceptive.
Because of its antiandrogenic effects, spironolactone is effective, but not FDA-approved, for this indication.22,23 A Cochrane review suggested that spironolactone is superior to finasteride.28 Combining spironolactone with oral contraceptives may be synergistic, but caution should be used in women taking drospirenone because each agent can cause hyperkalemia.2 Spironolactone is FDA pregnancy category C.

Side effects: There is no serious side effect associated with Gymnema as long as it is only used for less than about 2 years. This is not a long-term herbal solution to PCOS. It can affect blood sugar so people with diabetes should monitor their levels carefully when taking Gymnema. This herb is also not recommended for breastfeeding or pregnant women even though no complications have been documented.

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.
“Don't just trust what the first doctor you see says without doing some research,” she says. “Find another woman with PCOS, go online to some of these support groups. Find a reproductive endocrinologist who knows what they're doing. Talk to other cysters, read the articles, look for doctor recommendations. We have a syndrome that is so complicated and confusing, one of the best ways we can help ourselves is to be proactive and make sure we find the best and most knowledgeable caregivers available to us.”

This is A LOT of benzodiazepines. I remember the last batch she got too, and it wasn't that long ago. She's using more than I am, and I'm using them legally for a partial spinal cord injury. The FUCK, Luna. Being dependant on heroin isn't enough for you or something? This bothers me more than the heroin, honestly. The withdrawal from benzos can actually kill you, unlike heroin. Not to mention that using multiple CNS depressants together is dangerous af. Narcan won't bring you back from that shit.
Cushing's syndrome, sometimes referred to as hypercortisolism, is a hormonal disorder caused by prolonged exposure to high levels of the hormone cortisol. Symptoms may include obesity, thinning arms and legs, a rounded face, and increased fat around the neck. Some causes of Cushing's syndrome is from taking glucocorticoid hormones such as prednisone for inflammatory diseases. Treatment for Cushing's syndrome depends on the cause.
Clomiphene (Clomid) is an oral medication that is the most common treatment used to induce ovulation. The use of both metformin and clomiphene has about the same fertility results as clomiphene use alone. A benefit is that metformin may help reduce the risk for ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (see also "What is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) during assisted reproductive technology (ART) fertility treatments. Other treatments to stimulate ovulation include another oral medication called letrozole (Femara) and gonadotropins which are hormones that are given by injection. In vitro fertilization (IVF) and in vitro maturation (IVM) may be other fertility treatment options.
Other tests that may be helpful but are not necessary for diagnosis include measurement of LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels to determine a serum ratio of LH/FSH. A ratio greater than 2 generally indicates PCOS, but there are no exact cutoff values because many different assays are used.26 The FSH level is more helpful in ruling out ovarian failure.26

Combined hormonal birth control pills can be used for long-term treatment in women with PCOS who do not wish to become pregnant. Combined hormonal pills contain both estrogen and progestin. These birth control pills regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce hirsutism and acne by decreasing androgen levels. They also decrease the risk of endometrial cancer.
 “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.”
Aunque los medicamentos utilizados para tratar el síndrome de ovario poliquístico reducen o detienen el crecimiento excesivo del vello en muchas chicas, existen distintos tipos de productos que ayudan a eliminar el vello en los lugares donde más disgusta tenerlo. Las cremas depilatorias permiten eliminar con facilidad el vello facial en el bigote o la barbilla. Asegúrate de seguir atentamente las instrucciones de uso para no desarrollar una erupción o una reacción alérgica.
Lifestyle interventions are usually required for long term sustainable results. PCOS women who smoke have higher free androgen levels and IR as measured by HOMA-IR, QUICKI and the insulin sensitivity index following 75 g OGTT[104]. Thus PCOS women who smoke have an additional reason to stop smoking. In more general population studies (non-PCOS) comprised mostly of middle-aged women, lifestyle intervention is more effective than metformin in preventing the progression to DM. Dietary and exercise intervention decreased the 4 year progression to DM in patients at risk (non-diabetic, elevated fasting and/or OGTT glucose) by almost 50%[105]. Realizing the limitations of applying this population sample to young PCOS women, it still highlights the benefit of non-pharmacological treatment. PCOS women randomized to both metformin and lifestyle interventions (compared to placebo) showed improvements in HOMAIR after 4 mo[106]. In European adolescents with PCOS who failed to achieve improvements in HOMA-IR after 6 mo of lifestyle intervention, both metformin and placebo reduced IR over 6 mo, although metformin offered no benefit over placebo[107]. Lifestyle modification in adolescents has been successful in reducing hyperandrogenism[103]. Modest weight loss of about 5% bodyweight has also been shown to lower hyperandrogenism[108] which may ultimately improve IR.
However, in women with PCOS receiving low doses of gonadotropins for timed intercourse, metformin administration can double the clinical pregnancy rate (OR 2.25; 95% CI: 1.50 to 3.38; p<0.001; 7 trials) and the live birth rate (OR 1.94; 95% CI: 1.10 to 3.44; p=0.020; 2 trials). Moreover, this practice can reduce the cancellation rate due to ovarian hyperresponsiveness by approximately 60% (OR 0.41; 95% CI: 0.24 to 0.72; p=0.002; 7 trials), the number of days of stimulation (mean difference (MD)=-3.28; 95% CI: -6.23 to 0.32; p=0.030; 6 trials) and the dose of gonadotropins (MD=-306.62; 95% CI: -500.02 to -113.22; p=0.002; 7 trials) in low-complexity cycles. However, the use of metformin is not related to a reduction in the multiple pregnancy rate (OR 0.32; 95% CI: 0.08 to 1.23; p=0.100; 3 trials), a change in the miscarriage rate (OR 0.47; 95% CI: 0.14 to 1.54; p=0.210; 5 trials) or OHSS (OR 0.56; 95% CI: 0.26 to 1.21; p=0.140; 5 trials). Notably, no conclusive data are available on the appropriate dose and time (pre-treatment or during gonadotropin treatment) for the use of metformin during timed intercourse with gonadotropins 37.
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.
Metformin has been tested in combination with cholesterol lowering medications. Pretreatment of obese PCOS patients with atorvastatin (20 mg per day for 3 mo) followed by 3 mo of metformin (1500 mg per day) resulted in more effective lowering of HOMA-IR than metformin alone[80]. Other similar data show that combined treatment with metformin and atorvastatin compared to metformin alone produced similar but significant improvements in IR. Combination therapy only showed successful reduction of hyperandrogenism and not IR[81].
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.

This thread fucks me up. I feel so much pity and sadness for this poor girl. Sort of hits close to home, when I turned 18 I moved in with a boy and got really sick and hooked on drugs for 2 years. I left him and got better, never did I ever get as bad as Luna but it could have happened had I been complacent like she is. I hope she finds the courage to leave. I think there's still beauty and potential underneath all the grime and illness, I even like her art sometimes and wish she'd spend more time on her paintings instead of on drugs. Lurch should be in prison for destroying this poor girl before she even had a chance. Sage for blog post.(USER HAS BEEN PUT OUT TO PASTURE)
A randomized study suggested that combined metformin/letrozole and bilateral ovarian drilling are similarly effective as second-line treatment in infertile women with clomiphene citrate–resistant PCOS. [52] In this study, 146 patients were given metformin and letrozole, and 73 underwent bilateral ovarian drilling. There was significant reduction in testosterone, fasting insulin, and ratio of fasting glucose to fasting insulin in the metformin/letrozole group. There was significant reduction in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), and ratio of LH to FSH in the bilateral drilling group. There was no significant difference between the patients in the 2 groups regarding cycle regularity, ovulation, pregnancy rate, and abortion rate. [52]
Antiandrogens, such as spironolactone, are effective for hirsutism. [79] Spironolactone (50-100 mg twice daily) is an effective primary therapy for hirsutism. Because of the potential teratogenic effects of spironolactone, patients require an effective form of contraception (eg, an oral contraceptive). Adverse effects of spironolactone include gastrointestinal discomfort and irregular menstrual bleeding, which can be managed by adding an oral contraceptive.
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.

Polycystic ovary syndrome represents 80% of anovulatory infertility cases. Treatment initially includes preconception guidelines, such as lifestyle changes (weight loss), folic acid therapy to prevent the risk of fetal neural tube defects and halting the consumption of tobacco and alcohol. The first-line pharmacological treatment for inducing ovulation consists of a clomiphene citrate treatment for timed intercourse. The second-line pharmacological treatment includes the administration of exogenous gonadotropins or laparoscopic ovarian surgery (ovarian drilling). Ovulation induction using clomiphene citrate or gonadotropins is effective with cumulative live birth rates of approximately 70%. Ovarian drilling should be performed when laparoscopy is indicated; this procedure is typically effective in approximately 50% of cases. Finally, a high-complexity reproduction treatment (in vitro fertilization or intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is the third-line treatment and is recommended when the previous interventions fail. This option is also the first choice in cases of bilateral tubal occlusion or semen alterations that impair the occurrence of natural pregnancy. Evidence for the routine use of metformin in infertility treatment of anovulatory women with polycystic ovary syndrome is not available. Aromatase inhibitors are promising and longer term studies are necessary to prove their safety.

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.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is not a simple pathophysiologic process for which one treatment addresses all manifestations. It is a condition that occurs in approximately 5 to 10 percent of women of childbearing age.1 It can affect women in many different ways; therefore, physicians must individualize treatment goals and target treatment to specific manifestations. Comorbidities (e.g., cardiovascular risk factors, endocrinologic disease) and the patient's desire for pregnancy must be considered when choosing a treatment regimen.

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.
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]
