Medical therapy inhibits hair growth without eliminating hair already present. Therefore, medical therapy usually is combined with mechanical methods of hair removal, such as electrolysis or lasers. Electrolysis refers to the insertion of an electrode to destroy individual hair follicles. It is ideal for removing small areas of sparse hair of any color. Laser hair removal is a common, safe and effective cosmetic procedure that also is performed for removal of unwanted facial and body hair. Laser therapy is more expensive than electrolysis but is faster, less painful, and requires fewer sessions. Laser therapy destroys hair by targeting the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle and is ideally suited for dark-haired, light-skinned individuals. Longer-wavelength lasers with cooling devices can be used for individuals who have red, true blond, or white hair and for dark-skinned people. With appropriate therapy, there is up to a 70% reduction in hair density in treated areas, with remaining hairs becoming thinner in diameter within 3-6 months of treatment. Most patients then require some degree of maintenance treatment, usually every 6-12 months.

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.
Su médico puede ayudarla a encontrar la manera de sentirse mejor sobre su apariencia. Por ejemplo, puede preguntarle al médico acerca de la mejor manera de eliminar el vello facial. Si se siente deprimida o preocupada, pregúntele a sus padres o médico de quién puede recibir terapia. También puede recurrir a un grupo de apoyo para hablar con otras mujeres con el síndrome. Es más valiente recibir terapia que sufrir en silencio.

Fasting insulin level or GTT with insulin levels (also called IGTT). Elevated insulin levels have been helpful to predict response to medication and may indicate women needing higher dosages of metformin or the use of a second medication to significantly lower insulin levels. Elevated blood sugar and insulin values do not predict who responds to an insulin-lowering medication, low-glycemic diet, and exercise. Many women with normal levels may benefit from combination therapy. A hypoglycemic response in which the two-hour insulin level is higher and the blood sugar lower than fasting is consistent with insulin resistance. A mathematical derivation known as the HOMAI, calculated from the fasting values in glucose and insulin concentrations, allows a direct and moderately accurate measure of insulin sensitivity (glucose-level x insulin-level/22.5).[citation needed]

Cimicifuga racemosa was found to lower LH in two laboratory studies both examining cell cultures from ovariectomised rats [45, 52] (Table 1). The mechanism occurred through competitive inhibition of oestrogen following the selective binding of oestrogen receptors (ERα) on the hypothalamus and pituitary [52]. An earlier study found contrary results for reduction of LH, however this study investigated an isolated flavonoid and suggested that other constituents may be active [37].
There's also a good and bad way to go about nitpicking, imo. For every person laughing at Momo's dimpled ass, there are ten anons going 'ewwwwww look at _____'s potato nose i'd kms if i had it' or 'omg she needs surgery on her chin' and other ridiculous overreactions to normal photos/facial features that seem like they're made by young teens who want to make themselves feel more attractive.
Many assisted-reproduction techniques are available for women who have difficulty conceiving because of PCOS. Working with UChicago Medicine experts in reproductive endocrinology, the Center for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome offers a full spectrum of standard and innovative fertility therapies — from oral and injectible medications that stimulate ovulation to advanced in vitro fertilization techniques, including use of donor eggs.

Some people don't gain weight. It's not the antipsychotic that make you gain weight per se anyway (it does kinda fuck up metabolism thp) but the munchies you get from it. I don't see Luna being able to handle them enough to stay at normal weight if she had it, she's always snacking on shit, it would only be worse with the quietapine generated ravenous hunger.
she doesnt say shit until someone else brings her up, she screencaps probably most of the milk for this thread and yeah has left her icon in a few times and pretends to be nice to tuna for milk, but any of you bitches would do the same if tuna talked to you and you were screencapping as many posts as she does. just stfu already, theres no milk besides the stuff from tuna that shes farming for us
Studies have attempted for years to show an advantage to metformin for ovulation induction and as an adjunct to more advanced fertility treatments. In ovulatory PCOS women metformin was associated with improved serum and follicular fluid AMH levels as well as insulin values; these changes were not seen in anovulatory PCOS women[71]. Despite the demonstration of negative effects of IR on reproductive outcome, the vast majority of evidence does not show improvement in live birth rates when metformin is used strictly for fertility[72], although treatment does improve ovulatory status[72,73].
Same, anon. I'm pretty sedated always I don't remember what it feels like not be on it but it took me literal years to get here I can't imagine taking 400 off the bat and not be able to sleep. One of the 500 drugs in her system must make it less effective but it's a very heavy sedative. It's not fun tho either. Idk why someone would abuse it. She probably thinks it's the same thing ambien but it is definitely not. She's so dumb it's amazing.
PCOS is a life-long condition and although the exact cause is yet to be identified, it is believed to have epigenetic origins, influenced by the uterine environment and behavioural factors [19]. Being overweight exacerbates all aspects of PCOS due to underlying metabolic disturbances [3]. Signs and symptoms are mediated by hormonal disorder including elevated androgens and fasting insulin, and abnormal relative ratio of the gonadotropins luteinising hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) [19]. Endocrine imbalances occur within the framework of disordered ovarian folliculogenesis, chronic anovulation, clinical signs of hyperandrogenism and metabolic syndrome [19].
Depilar el vello con cera o con pinzas son otras formas de controlar los efectos de su crecimiento (sea en casa o en un salón de belleza). También puedes ir a un dermatólogo (un médico especializado en problemas de la piel) o a un especialista cualificado en tratamientos de depilación por electrolisis o láser quirúrgico. Estos procedimientos permiten eliminar el vello no deseado durante mucho más tiempo, pero también son mucho más caros.
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.

While PCOS is not curable, symptoms are treatable with medications and changes in diet and exercise. Hormonal imbalances can be treated with birth control pills, androgen blocking medications, or medications that help the body use insulin better. Medications that help the body respond better to insulin may also be helpful. For women whose infertility problems are not resolved with lifestyle changes alone, medications that improve ovulation (fertility drugs) may be helpful.

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.
Bergmann J, Luft B, et al. [62]	Randomised, placebo controlled double blind study. Three months or 3 menstrual cycles.	Women with fertility disorders, (n = 67). Two sub-groups.	Herbal extract Phyto-Hypophyson® by Steril-Pharma GmbH Herrsching, Germany; contains Vitex agnus-castus plus Chelledonium majus and Silybum marianum (St Mary’s thistle) in homeopathic form. Additional herbal extracts have reported activity in hepatic function. There are no reports for direct reproductive effects. 150 drops per day (7.5 ml per day).	Primary outcome for participants with amenorrhoea: at least one spontaneous menses.	Oligomenorrhoeic subgroup - clinical outcomes were significantly improved in the treatment arm at 82% compared to 45% in placebo arm P = 0.021. When the amenorrheic group were included in analysis, differences were not significant p = 0.19.	Diagnosis for anovulatory amenorrhoea is not well described. Non-statistically significant take home baby rates were complicated by insufficient sample size. 366 patients are required to have a 95% chance, as significant at the 5% level, an increase in take home baby rates from 6% in the placebo group to 18% in the experimental group. The authors conclude that this preparation may be useful if given 3–6 months, yet they only tested for 3 months.

The clinical presentation of PCOS is variable. Patients may be asymptomatic or they may have multiple gynecologic, dermatologic, or metabolic manifestations. Patients with PCOS most commonly present with signs of hyperandrogenism and a constellation of oligomenorrhea, amenorrhea, or infertility.19,22 Workup for PCOS is sometimes prompted by an incidental finding of multiple ovarian cysts after ultrasonography.

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
Sin tratamiento, el endometrio que se vuelve cada vez más grueso puede pasar a ser cáncer endometrial. PCOS también está relacionado con otras enfermedades que se presentan después de algunos años, como resistencia a la insulina, diabetes tipo 2, colesterol alto, endurecimiento de las arterias (aterosclerosis), presión alta y enfermedades del corazón.
Obesity is associated with PCOS. Obesity not only compounds the problem of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes (see below), but also imparts cardiovascular risks. PCOS and obesity are associated with a higher risk of developing metabolic syndrome , a group of symptoms, including high blood pressure, that increase the chances of developing cardiovascular disease. It has also been shown that levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a biochemical marker that can predict the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, are elevated in women with PCOS. Reducing the medical risks from PCOS-associated obesity is important.
If a regular menstrual cycle is not desired, then therapy for an irregular cycle is not necessarily required. Most experts say that, if a menstrual bleed occurs at least every three months, then the endometrium (womb lining) is being shed sufficiently often to prevent an increased risk of endometrial abnormalities or cancer.[93] If menstruation occurs less often or not at all, some form of progestogen replacement is recommended.[92] An alternative is oral progestogen taken at intervals (e.g., every three months) to induce a predictable menstrual bleeding.[medical citation needed]
Like >>409129 said, there are non-opioid painkillers. But the chemical component of opioids that relieves pain is not the same component that causes a high anyway. We already have partial opiate agonists (like Suboxone) that people have been on for years. From what I've read about a vaccine like this, opioids could still be administered with the intended effect of substantial pain relief. With no unwanted side effects (high). Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, this prospect really excites me. Something like this could lead to a whole new class of painkilling drugs for people with chronic pain, allowing them to function without being high at all times.

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]

Ethanol extracts 1. One study examined the oestrogenic effects of Tribulus terrestris on uterine and vaginal tissue of ovariectomised rats [51]. 1. Healthy women n = 8 early menstrual cycle (follicular phase) Pre and post serum hormone concentration for FSH, LH testosterone and oestradiol at 8 am and 12 pm. Intervention consisted of Tribulus Terrestris 250 mg per day over five days. Results showed significant increase in FSH and rise in LH (not significant), an increase in oestradiol and no change in testosterone concentration [56] 1. Ovulation induction in polycystic ovaries [46, 47].
Along with the hormonal imbalance and insulin resistance, Medling says that chronic, low-grade inflammation is the third player in the syndrome. (5) Follow an anti-inflammatory diet, which includes nutrient and fiber-rich produce that are low on the glycemic index (like apples and berries), grass-fed meats, organic poultry, as well as sources of omega-3s (like chia seeds and fatty fish) and avoids inflammatory, heavily processed foods, like french fries, potato chips, cake, and cookies. You’ll also want to keep track of foods that bother you (like if dairy gives you gas) and avoid those to help you feel better, she says. (6)
Los ovarios producen hormonas, que son sustancias químicas que controlan las funciones del organismo. Una de las hormonas que producen los ovarios es el estrógeno, a veces llamado "hormona femenina" porque el cuerpo de la mujer produce más cantidad que el cuerpo del hombre. Los ovarios también producen andrógenos, a veces llamados "hormonas masculinas" porque el cuerpo del hombre produce más cantidad que el cuerpo de la mujer. Sin embargo, tanto los hombres como las mujeres necesitan niveles determinados de ambas hormonas para tener una buena salud.

Diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is relatively straightforward. Common criteria established by the Rotterdam Conference in 2003 include at least two of three characteristics (oligomenorrhea, clinical and/or biochemical hyperandrogenism and ultrasound criteria) in the absence of other disease. PCOS is the most common hormonal disorder in women worldwide with prevalence estimates between 4%-8% but as high as 25% in some populations[1]. Women often initiate medical care for a cluster of PCOS symptoms (infertility, hirsutism and irregular menstrual cycles) that ultimately are not the most concerning medical consequences of PCOS [diabetes mellitus (DM), coronary artery disease (CAD), endometrial hyperplasia/cancer]. Here exists an important paradigm in the recognition and treatment of PCOS.
Shahin [68] Non-blinded randomised controlled trial. Women with PCOS and infertility, n = 194. All participants received pharmaceutical ovulation induction (Clomiphene citrate 150 mg on days 3–7 of cycle); trigger injection (HCG 10000 IU Pregnyl), timed intercourse and progesterone support (oral micronized progesterone). A randomly selected group additional took Cimicifuga racemosa 120 mg per day (Klimadynon®) Primary outcomes pregnancy rates. Secondary outcomes: Pregnancy rates were 33 out of 192 cycles (17.2%) for the clomiphene alone group and 71 out of 204 cycles (34.8%) for the clomiphene plus Cimicifuga racemosa group. Non-blinding compromised the internal validity of the findings in this study. Confounding variables include variations in participant’s and clinicians attitudes and may have led to differences which were unaccounted for between the two groups. However the outcomes are objective with a statistically powered sample size.
High levels of masculinizing hormones: Known as hyperandrogenism, the most common signs are acne and hirsutism (male pattern of hair growth, such as on the chin or chest), but it may produce hypermenorrhea (heavy and prolonged menstrual periods), androgenic alopecia (increased hair thinning or diffuse hair loss), or other symptoms.[17][19] Approximately three-quarters of women with PCOS (by the diagnostic criteria of NIH/NICHD 1990) have evidence of hyperandrogenemia.[20]
