Stress exacerbates inflammation. (7) “Put yourself first and make sure your needs are met,” says Medling. You can do this by practicing self-care, which means carrying out small acts that make you feel less stressed and more balanced. This may be via mediation, exercise, or getting in tune with hobbies you love. “Anxiety is one of the key symptoms of PCOS. By reducing stress, you can reduce inflammation and better your hormonal balance,” she says. (8,9)
Su médico le hará un examen físico y preguntará sobre su salud, medicamentos y ciclo menstrual. El médico también querrá saber si hay antecedentes familiares del síndrome (su madre, una hermana o tía). En el examen físico, el médico le medirá la presión arterial y determinará su estatura y peso. Su médico también examinará su vellosidad y buscará parches de piel oscura.
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.

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.
Women with PCOS have been shown to have higher levels of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) in their blood. AGEs are compounds formed when glucose binds with proteins, and are believed to contribute to certain degenerative diseases and aging. One small study found that cutting down on dietary AGEs significantly reduced insulin levels in women with PCOS. Foods high in AGEs include animal-derived foods and processed foods. Applying high heat (grilling, searing, roasting) increases levels.

2. amenorrhoea n = 30. Oligomenorrhoea group: Treatment n = 17. Placebo n = 20. Amenorrhoea group. Treatment n = 16. Placebo n = 14. For oligomenorrhoea: Shortened menstrual cycle of at least 4 days. Earlier ovulation of at least 3 days. For anovulatory oligomenorrhoea: Mid luteal progesterone increase (>50% 5–10 days before menstruation. Secondary clinical outcomes, pregnancy rates and take home baby rates. At 6 months following conclusion of treatment, the take home baby rate with treatment was 18.7% compared to 6.4% in placebo group. Not statistically significant.

Otros medicamentos pueden ser beneficiosos con los problemas cosméticos. Existen también medicamentos para controlar la presión alta y el colesterol. Se puede tomar progestinas y medicamentos para aumentar la sensibilidad a la insulina a fin de inducir un periodo menstrual y restaurar ciclos normales. Una dieta balanceada con pocos carbohidratos y un peso saludable pueden disminuir los síntomas de PCOS. El ejercicio frecuente ayuda a perder peso y también a que el cuerpo reduzca el nivel de glucosa en la sangre y use la insulina más eficientemente.
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.

Surgery. Surgery is also an option, usually only if the other options do not work. The outer shell (called the cortex) of ovaries is thickened in women with PCOS and thought to play a role in preventing spontaneous ovulation. Ovarian drilling is a surgery in which the doctor makes a few holes in the surface of your ovary using lasers or a fine needle heated with electricity. Surgery usually restores ovulation, but only for 6 to 8 months.
