Diet, exercise, and maintaining a healthy body weight may help many women manage the symptoms of PCOS. These lifestyle changes are recommended to help decrease insulin resistance. Weight reduction can also decrease testosterone, insulin, and LH levels. Regular exercise and healthy foods will help lower blood pressure and cholesterol as well as improve sleep apnea problems. Refraining from smoking cigarettes or other tobacco products also may lower androgen levels.

Evidence suggests that metformin frequently, but not universally, improves ovulation rates and pregnancy rates in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), especially in obese women. [2, 3, 70] In addition, pretreatment with metformin has been shown to enhance the efficacy of clomiphene for inducing ovulation. [71] Consider the combination of metformin and clomiphene in older women with visceral obesity and clomiphene resistance. [2] However, this combination doesn’t significantly improve the live birth rate relative to clomiphene monotherapy. [2] Whether short-course metformin pretreatment (less than 4 weeks) is as effective as conventional long-course metformin remains uncertain. [5, 72]
Many health experts believe that numerous variables, including genetics, might be a factor in the development of PCOS. For example, you might find your sister, mother, aunt or grandmother has PCOS. It is clear that hormone imbalance is a primary influencing factor in PCOS as well as a condition called insulin resistance. Insulin is a potent hormone which is released by the pancreas as a result of food intake, in particular carbs. Insulin conveys sugar out from the blood and moves it into other cells such as muscle, liver and even fat cells. The sugar is then changed into energy or in some cases stored as fat. Sometimes this process is defective which is called insulin resistance.
Various laparoscopic methods, including electrocautery, laser drilling, and multiple biopsy, have been used with the goal of creating focal areas of damage in the ovarian cortex and stroma. According to the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), laparoscopic ovarian drilling may be considered in women with clomiphene-resistant PCOS, especially in the presence of other laparoscopic indications. [2] A small French study also suggested that surgical management via ovarian drilling with hydrolaparoscopy may be beneficial in cases of PCOS that are resistant to clomiphene citrate. [87]

The syndrome acquired its most widely used name due to the common sign on ultrasound examination of multiple (poly) ovarian cysts. These "cysts" are actually immature follicles not cysts. The follicles have developed from primordial follicles, but the development has stopped ("arrested") at an early antral stage due to the disturbed ovarian function. The follicles may be oriented along the ovarian periphery, appearing as a 'string of pearls' on ultrasound examination.[citation needed]

“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.”
Si tienes un acné grave como síntoma del síndrome de ovario poliquístico, este podría mejorar si parte de tu tratamiento incluye los anticonceptivos orales o los antiandrógenos. Si tu acné no mejora tras el tratamiento, tu médico te podría remitir a un dermatólogo para que te lo trate. El dermatólogo también podría recomendarte medicamentos para reducir el oscurecimiento de la piel y para prevenir el crecimiento excesivo del vello.

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.

Given the conditions associated with PCOS, the Endocrine Society, the Androgen Excess and PCOS Society, and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommend that clinicians evaluate patients' blood pressure at every visit and lipid levels at the time of diagnosis, and screen for type 2 diabetes with a two-hour oral glucose tolerance test regardless of a patient's body mass index. Patients should have repeat diabetes screening every three to five years, or more often if other indications for screening are present.19–21 The Endocrine Society further recommends depression screening, as well as screening for symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea in overweight and obese patients with PCOS.19 However, routine screening for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease or endometrial cancer (using ultrasonography) is not recommended.19
I've never believed that she could get together $1700 on rent ALONE. I don't know much about U.S benefits but in the UK for an under 25 year old unemployment check is just about £60 a week. Even disability allowance wouldnt support the cost of a house like that and their drug habit. Seems impossible that they'd be paying for the house without help from Roger or family members

Chromium ay naroroon sa katawan ng tao sa minimal na halaga, at ito Pinahuhusay ang kakayahan upang magbabad insulin. Ang isang babae na apektado ng PCOS ay maaaring maging lumalaban sa insulin, at maaari niyang harapin ang sitwasyong ito sa pamamagitan ng ubos na pagkain na naglalaman ng kromo. Ilang mga halimbawa ay ang broccoli, red wine, at berde beans. Maaari ka ring kumuha chromium supplement.
In PCOS, both ovaries tend to be enlarged, as much as three times their normal size. Eggs that do not mature fully are not released during ovulation and the immature eggs remain in the ovary as pearl-sized, fluid filled sacs. Over the course of time, many cysts may develop into what looks like a string of beads when viewed through ultrasound imaging. In as many as 90% of women with PCOS, an ultrasound of the ovaries will reveal cysts.
Insulin-sensitizing agents are indicated for most women with PCOS because they have positive effects on insulin resistance, menstrual irregularities, anovulation, hirsutism, and obesity. Of all the drugs used to treat manifestations of PCOS, metformin (Glucophage) has the most data supporting its effectiveness. Table 1 details the most common medications used to treat manifestations of PCOS.6–27
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.
Herbal remedies can be a very effective treatment option for PCOS because they are usually quite gentle on the body and have fewer side effects than medication.3 You can usually use PCOS herbs longer with fewer problems which is important because PCOS does not go away over time. The reasons you might want to consider using herbs for your polycystic ovarian syndrome is they can be very successful in treating the contributing factors of PCOS, providing relief for symptoms and healing the body by boosting your immune system.

PCOS es un complemento que ayuda a equilibrar los niveles hormonales (exceso de testosterona) en las mujeres con SOP. Esos desequilibrios hormonales provocan en la mayoría de los casos signos externos de hiperandrogenismo como exceso de vello, caída excesiva del cabello y acné. Al regular tus niveles hormonales, conseguirás suavizar y mejorar esos signos externos 🙂
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.
Treatment for 3 months. 1 tablet per day. Bromocriptine in the form of Parlodel produced by Novartis, Turkey, 2.5 mg twice daily. Normal range 25.2mIU/l - 628.5 mIU/l. Equivalence demonstrated for the significant reduction of serum prolactin for V. agnus-castus and Bromocriptine (P = 0.96). Small sample sizes with 2 sub-groups. Insufficiently powered to correctly identify the effects; 377 participants were required (±5%, 95% confidence).
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.
Physicians and scientists at UChicago Medicine are also actively pursuing additional solutions for treating PCOS through ongoing clinical trials. In addition, we maintain a current database of more than 700 patients with PCOS. This helps us to monitor progress and changes that may occur over many years of treatment and identify new trends in the disease.

Evidence for Tribulus terrestris, Glycyrrhiza spp. alone and in combination with Paeonia lactiflora and Paeonia lactiflora with Cinnamomum cassia was limited by the volume of laboratory and animal studies, with only one to two studies found for each herb or herbal combination. There was supporting clinical data, however many were small single arm, open label studies measuring endocrine effects in healthy women. Evidence for these herbal medicines is preliminary and in an emergent phase.
The definitive cause of PCOS is unknown, but researchers have found a strong link to insulin resistance, a genetic condition often associated with diabetes, in which the muscle, fat, and liver cells do not respond properly to insulin and thus cannot easily absorb glucose (sugar) from the bloodstream. As a result, the body produces higher and higher levels of insulin to help glucose enter the cells.

“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.”
The principle infertility treatment includes lifestyle changes. The first-line drug treatment to induce ovulation consists of CC with timed intercourse. The second-line treatment consists of the exogenous administration of gonadotropins or laparoscopic ovarian surgery in cases where laparoscopy is indicated. The third-line treatment consists of IVF/ICSI, which is indicated when the previous interventions fail; this treatment can also be the first choice in cases of bilateral tubal occlusion or semen alterations that impair the occurrence of natural pregnancy. There is no evidence for the routine use of metformin in infertility treatment of anovulatory women with PCOS. Aromatase inhibitors are promising, and long-term studies are necessary to prove their safety.
Agreed, sounds like a bunch of insecure teenagers trying to tear people down for things they can't help so they can feel better about their own misshapen bodies. Luna is shitty enough of her own accord; no need to get all up in arms over things that she has no control over when she doesn't even pretend to be a flawless aphrodite like many of the cows here. It's just self-serving tryhardery at that point.

What matters most: Your goal when losing weight is to aim specifically to reduce the fat around your abdomen (belly fat). This requires boosting your metabolism like women who had PCOS did in an Italian weight loss study.7 Those who rode exercise bikes for 30 minutes, three times a week, lost more abdominal fat than those who shed pounds by just eating less.7 You won’t be successful if you only change your diet. More women in the exercise group than the diet group began ovulating even though both groups lost similar amounts of weight.7


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.

Any of the above symptoms and signs may be absent in PCOS, with the exception of irregular or no menstrual periods. All women with PCOS will have irregular or no menstrual periods. Women who have PCOS do not ovulate regularly; that is, they do not release an egg every month. This is why they do not have regular periods and typically have difficulty conceiving.

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).
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.
Other pharmacological treatments have attempted to lower IR. Vitamin D has been shown to decrease HOMA-IR despite a lack of change in hyperandrogenism in young, obese PCOS women[99]. Animal studies have demonstrated that treatment with glycyrrhizic acid affecting lipoprotein lipase activity decreases serum insulin and HOMA-IR[100]. Although oral contraceptive pills positively affect hyperandrogenism, they have little to no effect on glucose metabolism by OGTT[101]. Long term oral contraceptive pill use may have some limited benefit in IR but data are limited[102]. A 6 mo course of oral contraceptive pill treatment in adolescent obese PCOS women has demonstrated some improvement in IR[103].
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.
Fertility Treatments: Once other possible reasons for infertility in you and your partner have been ruled out, your gynecologist or fertility specialist may recommend the drug clomiphene (Clomid) to induce ovulation. Six months of treatment has been known to achieve successful pregnancies for about 20-40% of women with PCOS,19 according to ACOG. If clomiphene is tried and isn’t effective, you may be given gonadotrophins to try and jumpstart your ovaries.
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?

Two clinical studies examined the androgen lowering effects of Glycyrrhiza Glabra. A single arm clinical trial demonstrated reduced testosterone in healthy women aged 22–26 years (n = 9) over two menstrual cycles. Treatment with Glycyrrhiza glabra, 7 grams per day reduced testosterone from 27.8(±8.2) to 17.5 (±6.4), p < 0.05 [55]. Another single arm clinical trial investigated the effects of Glycyrrhiza glabra in women with PCOS, (n = 32). Glycyrrhiza glabra 3.5 g per day was added to anti-androgen pharmaceutical treatment, Spirinolactone 100 mg/day over two menstrual cycles. An unwanted side effect for Spirinolactone was the flare of androgens during the initial phase of treatment. This study demonstrated reduced concentrations of testosterone during the first four days of treatment at 103 ± 29 ng/d in the Spirinolactone group compared to 91 ng/d (±19) when combined with Glycyrrhiza glabra (p < 0.05) [54] (Table 1). Consistent laboratory and clinical outcomes were demonstrated however limitations included design shortcomings. Both clinical studies were open label observational design with small sample sizes; one included healthy participants. Rigorous studies are needed to confirm the androgen lowering effects of Glycyrrhiza spp. in hyperandrogenism and PCOS.
No one is quite sure what causes PCOS, and it is likely to be the result of a number of both genetic (inherited) as well as environmental factors. Women with PCOS often have a mother or sister with the condition, and researchers are examining the role that genetics or gene mutations might play in its development. The ovaries of women with PCOS frequently contain a number of small cysts, hence the name poly=many cystic ovarian syndrome. A similar number of cysts may occur in women without PCOS. Therefore, the cysts themselves do not seem to be the cause of the problem.
I thought that too at first (i've been following her since she was like 16, unfollowed for a while, then when i refollowed came back to grimy heroin luna). It's because her hair is longer and she's gotten thinner. That's really it. Everything else from her youth looks so much better. The light in her eyes, the freckles, the friendships, the cute babydoll dresses… She just looked happier…. I mean sure she was chunky and her hair was always mangled, but she was happy and that's much more important IMO.

Ciertos médicos permiten que las embarazadas con PCOS sigan tomando metformina durante el embarazo, mientras que otros no se la recetan a mujeres que están tratando de concebir. No existe evidencia de que cause defectos congénitos, pero se desconocen los efectos a largo plazo en el bebé. Las mujeres deben hablar con su médico sobre los riesgos y beneficios de los medicamentos. Por lo general se vigila más de cerca a aquellas que toman el medicamento. Después del embarazo, muchas mujeres con el síndrome tienen ciclos menstruales normales y se les hace más fácil volver a salir embarazadas.
Certain lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, are considered first-line treatment for adolescent girls and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). [41] Pharmacologic treatments are reserved for so-called metabolic derangements, such as anovulation, hirsutism, and menstrual irregularities. Medications for such conditions include oral contraceptives, metformin, prednisone, leuprolide, clomiphene, and spironolactone.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is classified as a disorder which encompasses a group of symptoms that collectively indicate a distinct health issue. This means that the symptoms associated with PCOS will vary from woman to woman. Your PCOS experience is probably very different from another woman with this condition but that does not mean you are alone! PCOS is a condition which can affect between 5 – 10% of all women and is the most common cause of infertility.8 You may be wondering how you ended up in this group of women but unfortunately the precise reason polycystic ovarian syndrome develops isn’t completely clear. 8 Having said that, many experts believe insulin as well as hormone imbalances have a strong influence on PCOS and the severity of its symptoms.

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

Complementary medicine (CM) use by women has increased during the past ten years [7–11] with rates of use ranging between 26% and 91% [8, 9]. One of the popular types of CM is herbal medicine [11, 12]. Herbal medicines are known to contain pharmacologically active constituents with physiological effects on female endocrinology and have been positively associated with reduced incidences of breast cancer, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease [13–18].


Muchas gracias por tu comentario 🙂 Efectivamente, PCOS tiene como objetivo ayudar a regular los niveles que están desajustados en las mujeres con SOP. De esta forma, contribuye a que las reglas se regulen de forma natural y se alivien otros síntomas del SOP. PCOS es eficaz en 8 de cada 10 mujeres y suele regular los ciclos tras 2/3 meses tomándolo.

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.
A total of 33 studies were included in this review. Eighteen pre-clinical studies reported mechanisms of effect and fifteen clinical studies corroborated pre-clinical findings, including eight randomised controlled trials, and 762 women with menstrual irregularities, hyperandrogenism and/or PCOS. Interventions included herbal extracts of Vitex agnus-castus, Cimicifuga racemosa, Tribulus terrestris, Glycyrrhiza spp., Paeonia lactiflora and Cinnamomum cassia. Endocrine outcomes included reduced luteinising hormone (LH), prolactin, fasting insulin and testosterone. There was evidence for the regulation of ovulation, improved metabolic hormone profile and improved fertility outcomes in PCOS. There was evidence for an equivalent effect of two herbal medicines and the pharmaceutical agents bromocriptine (and Vitex agnus-castus) and clomiphene citrate (and Cimicifuga racemosa). There was less robust evidence for the complementary combination of spirinolactone and Glycyrrhiza spp. for hyperandrogenism.
If I were the nurse I wouldn't fucking care either. When an insane person or an addict is shitting and pissing all over the floor, all they can do is give them a bucket, qurantine them and clean it up after they're done. Nurses are human, plenty of them gag at the smell and sight of shit and vomit, just like everyone else. Just because they clean it up doesn't mean they enjoy doing it.

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.

Approximately 15% of women with PCOS do not respond to the maximum dose of CC and are considered resistant to this medication. Due to the anti-estrogenic effect of this drug, endometrial proliferation may be inappropriate, which decreases the chance of embryo implantation. Moreover, this effect can also change the cervical mucus characteristics with a consequent reduction in sperm penetration 17,23. If the patient does not ovulate after the use of CC, gonadotropins for timed intercourse or ovarian drilling are the next steps to manage anovulatory infertile women with PCOS 9.

The most common form of treatment for PCOS is the birth control pill; however, other kinds of hormonal therapy may include the “vaginal ring” and “the patch”. Even if you’re not sexually active, birth control pills may be prescribed because they contain the hormones that your body needs to treat your PCOS. Birth control pills (either taken continuously or in cycles) can:
