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.

Traditionally, women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have been treated with therapies aimed at relieving specific PCOS symptoms or health risks. Newer treatments being investigated at the University of Chicago Medicine and elsewhere also aim to address what may be a root cause of PCOS: insulin resistance. Many of these new therapies are designed to lower insulin levels, thus reducing production of testosterone.

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.
The risk of developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes is increased in women with PCOS, particularly if they have a family history of diabetes. Obesity and insulin resistance, both associated with PCOS, are significant risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes. Several studies have shown that women with PCOS have abnormal levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol and lowered levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol in the blood. Elevated levels of blood triglycerides have also been described in women with PCOS.

Patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) who have impaired glucose tolerance should start a comprehensive program of diet and exercise to reduce their risk of developing diabetes mellitus. Encourage moderate physical activity, provided the patient has no contraindications. Discourage smoking because of the increased risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, obese women with PCOS can benefit from a low-calorie diet for weight reduction.
Treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome is individualized to treat prevailing signs/symptoms and generally focused on correcting irregular bleeding from the uterus, restoring fertility, improving the skin manifestations of androgen excess (hirsutism, acne, hair loss), and preventing diabetes and cardiovascular disease. More recently, attention has also focused on improving the quality of life in PCOS women who have body image concerns.
Yeah, PCOS isn't period-dependent. That said, there are some suspicious blood stains in Luna's apartment that look like leaks (though they could possibly be explained by shooting up). Though since she does have PCOS, painful periods are one of those things she actually has grounds to complain about. Apparently they're often excruciating beyond belief with the condition.
Herbal medicines are complex interventions with the potential for synergistic and antagonistic interactions between compounds [25]. Effects within the body may also exhibit complexity by simultaneous interactions with various body systems, both biochemically and by altering organ function [26]. The focus of this review was studies investigating whole herbal medicine extracts with direct effects on reproductive endocrinology for the treatment of women with irregular menstruation, hyperandrogenism and PCOS. The rationale for using this methodology was to identify herbal medicines with current scientific evidence explaining specific reproductive endocrinological effects in PCOS, oligo/amenorrhoea and hyperandrogenism, to develop understanding for the direct effects of herbal medicines on reproductive endocrinology and to highlight herbal medicines for which there was current scientific evidence supporting herbal medicine selection. The purpose of this review is to inform clinical decisions in integrative settings and meet clinicians and consumers preferences for pragmatic herbal management within an holistic, individualised treatment frame [27, 28].

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.

The use of gonadotropins for timed intercourse is associated with an ovulation rate of approximately 70%, a clinical pregnancy rate of 20% per cycle and a multiple live birth rate of 5.7% 9. Due to the cost of the treatment, the need for regular monitoring of the follicular development via ultrasound and the higher pregnancy rates with IUI, the use of gonadotropin is not routine for timed intercourse. Instead, this medication is used in IUI 26 or high-complexity treatments (IVF or ICSI) 9.

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.

besides that, I'm not really sure why it takes so long. American courts in general are notoriously slow. every tiny thing gets adjourned, it's weird. I got into a methadone program while still going to court. I wasn't ordered to or anything. I told my lawyer. he told the judge. the judge said "good job, keep it up, see you next month! adjourned!" and moved on to the next person

The Androgen Excess and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Society recommends lifestyle management as the primary therapy for metabolic complications in overweight and obese women with PCOS. [67] A moderate amount of daily exercise increases levels of IGF-1 binding protein and decreases levels of IGF-1 by 20%. Modest weight loss of 2-5% of total body weight can help restore ovulatory menstrual periods in obese patients with PCOS. A decrease of 500-1000 calories daily, along with 150 minutes of exercise per week, can cause ovulation.
One study indicates that caloric intake timing can have a big impact on glucose, insulin and testosterone levels. Lowering insulin could potentially help with infertility issues. Women with PCOS who ate the majority of their daily calories at breakfast for 12 weeks significantly improved their insulin and glucose levels as well as decreased their testosterone levels by 50 percent, compared to women who consumed their largest meals at dinnertime. The effective diet consisted of a 980-calorie breakfast, a 640-calorie lunch, and a 190-calorie dinner.

“If a woman has fewer than eight menstrual periods a year on a chronic basis, she probably has a 50 to 80 percent chance of having polycystic ovary syndrome based on that single observation,” said John Nestler, the chair of the department of internal medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University. “But if she has infrequent menstruation and she has elevated levels of androgens such as testosterone in the blood, than she has a greater than 90 percent chance of having the condition.”
She thinks she's pretty much perfect, and having one thing about herself she doesn't like won't convince me that Tuna is a ~dark twisted individual full of self-hate. She clearly doesn't fit that image, and she's trying to make herself appear like that but it's 100% fake. Pic related, it's a call-out post from one of her old friends, seeing as people in here seem too newfag to know Luna's ways.
The IUI is performed with the same dose of gonadotropins recommended for timed intercourse (combined or not with clomiphene). However, for this treatment modality, the recombinant hCG is administered for final oocyte maturation when the dominant follicle has a mean diameter of 17 to 18 mm via US examination and capacitated sperm can be injected into the uterine cavity 36 hours later. Beta hCG is measured 14 days later to confirm pregnancy 25.
Metformina. La metformina se utiliza normalmente para tratar la diabetes tipo 2 y puede mejorar los síntomas del SOP en algunas mujeres. No está aprobada por la FDA para tratar los síntomas del SOP. La metformina optimiza la capacidad de la insulina para disminuir el azúcar en sangre y además puede reducir los niveles de insulina y andrógeno. Luego de varios meses de uso, la metformina puede ayudar a reactivar la ovulación, pero normalmente solo tiene un efecto mínimo en el acné y en el vello excesivo en el rostro o cuerpo. Estudios recientes demuestran que la metformina puede tener otros efectos positivos, como la disminución de la masa corporal y la optimización de los niveles de colesterol.
As many as 70% of PCOS women are insulin resistant and 10% have DM[20-22]. In PCOS women with normal glucose metabolism initially, the rate of conversion to abnormal glucose metabolism can be 25% over just three years[23]. More alarming, insulin abnormalities are highly prevalent in adolescents with PCOS[24]. Almost 20% of young Thai women with PCOS actually have DM[25]. Overall, normal glucose levels on an OGTT do not predict IR and IR, despite normal glucose levels, is correlated with CRP, dyslipidemia and other CAD risk factors[26]. Therefore, glucose levels alone lack the sensitivity to predict metabolic risk in PCOS patients. Precursor states of insulin abnormalities likely predict long term CAD risk well before glucose abnormalities. IR can be just as severe in diabetics and non-diabetics[27], stressing the seriousness of this metabolic impairment as a precursor and not a separate disease. Animal models have shown that IR alone damages myocardial cells, providing direct evidence of end organ disease[28]. Human data link HOMA-IR to left ventricular dysfunction[29]. Abnormal glucose metabolism short of IGT and DM still deserves attention, identification and treatment[30].
If you’ve been told you have PCOS, you may feel frustrated or sad. You may also feel relieved that at last there is a reason and treatment for the problems you have been having, especially if you have had a hard time keeping a healthy weight, or you have excess body hair, acne, or irregular periods. Having a diagnosis without an easy cure can be difficult. However, it’s important for girls with PCOS to know they are not alone. Finding a health care provider who knows a lot about PCOS and is someone you feel comfortable talking to is very important. Keeping a positive attitude and working on a healthy lifestyle even when results seem to take a long time is very important, too! Many girls with PCOS tell us that talking with a counselor about their concerns can be very helpful. Other girls recommend online chats. The Center for Young Women’s Health offers a free and confidential monthly online chat for girls and young women with PCOS.
Fish oil has been associated with a long list of health benefits, and some research indicates that omega-3 supplements can decrease androgen levels in women with PCOS. One study found that women with PCOS who were given three grams of omega-3s a day for eight weeks had lower testosterone concentrations and were more likely to resume regular menses than subjects who received a placebo.
Some have tried to utilize ultrasound to detect IR. Of note, normoglycemic women often have the phenotypic criteria for polycystic ovaries on ultrasound[54], consistent with other data in young adolescents showing that polycystic ovaries by ultrasound appearance often does not correlate with either anovulatory menstrual cycles or metabolic abnormalities[55]. Therefore ultrasound is too non-specific to use with any reliability in measuring IR.
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.
Si bien no se recomienda como primer tratamiento, existe una operación para el tratamiento de PCOS, llamada incisión ovárica. Se realiza un pequeño corte encima o debajo del ombligo y se inserta un pequeño instrumento llamado laparoscopio que sirve como telescopio en el abdomen. Durante la laparoscopía, el médico puede hacer punciones en el ovario con una aguja delgada que tiene corriente eléctrica para destruir una pequeña porción del ovario. La cirugía puede mejorar los niveles hormonales y la ovulación, aunque es posible que la mejoría dure solo unos meses.

In addition to improving reproductive and metabolic factors, the reduction in body weight may be associated with reduced incidence of complications during pregnancy and the neonatal period. In this context, lifestyle change should be the first choice for weight loss because medications to reduce weight could have side effects and bariatric surgery may be associated with preterm and small for gestational age births 14.


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.

We used the following definitions. PCOS according to the Rotterdam diagnostic criteria, specified by the presence of two out of three features; oligo/amenorrhoea, hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovaries on ultrasound [29, 30]. Associated endocrine features for PCOS included elevated LH [31], which is strongly associated with infertility (p = 0.0003) [32] and miscarriage [33] and elevated fasting glucose which is prevalent in approximately 31% of women with PCOS including normal weight women [34].
The IUI is performed with the same dose of gonadotropins recommended for timed intercourse (combined or not with clomiphene). However, for this treatment modality, the recombinant hCG is administered for final oocyte maturation when the dominant follicle has a mean diameter of 17 to 18 mm via US examination and capacitated sperm can be injected into the uterine cavity 36 hours later. Beta hCG is measured 14 days later to confirm pregnancy 25.
When the former NFL cheerleader Natalie Nirchi stopped menstruating at age 17, she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormone disorder affecting up to 10 percent of women of reproductive age. She didn’t initially show any of the physical symptoms, like excess hair growth, cystic acne, or obesity, but a blood test revealed that she had high levels of testosterone and an ultrasound showed cysts on her ovaries.
She vain, but she's vain about her aesthetic, not her body. She mentions her imperfections all the time rather than hiding them; she knows she has cellulite, we know that she has cellulite, it isn't something she's trying to hide from the world. Her imperfections are part of her 'poor and free' aesthetic (see gutterpunks for an example of a subculture that glorifies this). The people who point out the problems with her body are adding nothing to the discussion. The comments about her body flaws do nothing but clutter the threads with self-serving, childish garbage, usually in horrible tumblr-speak. Like yeah, we get that Luna's breasts are saggy. We've seen them and heard it a billion times already. Just stop.
Aunque el síndrome de ovario poliquístico (que antes se llamaba "síndrome de Stein-Leventhal") se identificó por primera vez en la década de los años treinta del siglo XX, los médicos todavía no conocen sus causas con certeza. Las investigaciones sugieren que puede estar relacionado con un aumento de la fabricación de insulina en el cuerpo. Las mujeres con síndrome de ovario poliquístico es posible que produzcan demasiada insulina, lo que estimula a sus ovarios a liberar un exceso de hormonas masculinas. El síndrome de ovario poliquístico parece darse por familias, de modo que si lo padece alguna pariente tuya, tú podrías ser proclive a desarrollarlo.
she's only playing dress up as a heroin addict because she knows she always has a safety net. those are the kids that go the hardest, the ones that are so privileged they think nothing really bad is ever going to happen to them. but she's already ruined her appearance and job opportunities, so i don't know where this weird superiority complex for being "poor" comes from? even if her daddy does save her she can't just get a top notch face lift like courtney love. no one cares. she's already so fucked and doesn't know it.
Metformin is among one of the main treatments to target insulin resistance if you have prediabetes or diabetes, including because of PCOS. The advice is controversial, but some physicians believe that PCOS always requires metformin, notes Dr. Dunaif. “There’s no reason to give every woman with PCOS metformin. It’s a good and safe drug, but there’s no point in taking it if you don’t need it,” she says. (She notes that it has such a good safety profile that even when overprescribed, it doesn’t cause any harm.) But it’s not a good way to reduce the male hormone symptoms, like excess hair growth.

According to a recent study published in the Endocrine Society’s March 2015 issue of Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, women diagnosed with PCOS are twice as likely to be hospitalized for heart disease, diabetes, mental-health conditions, reproductive disorders, and cancer of the uterine lining. The cost of evaluating and providing care to women with PCOS is approximately $4.36 billion per year.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can be a daunting diagnosis to receive. The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association defines the condition as a “genetic, hormonal, metabolic, and reproductive disorder that affects women.” (1) One in 10 women have it (about half don’t know it), and the complications can include infertility, obesity, and mood disorders.
oh ok thanks I didn't see that. wow he got that fast! maybe the bronx is faster at processing them. and yeah you'd think so. but especially with public defenders, they get paid by NY state, not the defendant obvi. the more hours they spend on a case, the more they get paid. also, the courts go on vacation usually for summer and Christmas/New Year's. Lurch got arrested in May but wasn't seen til July, prob due to summer vacation(s). one of my cases was still going on during the winter and I went to court in November and then didn't have to go again until mid January due to the holidays. so for a dopehead, that's 3 whole months of getting high without worrying about having to stop anytime soon.
Cirugía. La intervención quirúrgica también es una opción y generalmente se recomienda solo si las otras opciones no generan resultados. La capa exterior de los ovarios (llamada corteza) se vuelve más gruesa en el caso de las mujeres con SOP y se cree que esto puede estar relacionado con la anulación de la ovulación espontánea. La incisión ovárica es una cirugía en la cual el médico realiza varias "perforaciones" en la superficie del ovario mediante láser o con una aguja muy fina la cual se calienta con electricidad. La cirugía suele restablecer la ovulación, pero solo durante 6 a 8 meses.

For women who desire pregnancy, a medication called clomiphene (Clomid) can be used to induce ovulation (cause egg production). In addition, weight loss can normalize menstrual cycles and often increases the possibility of pregnancy in women with PCOS. Other, more aggressive, treatments for infertility (including injection of gonadotropin hormones and assisted reproductive technologies) may also be required in women who desire pregnancy and do not become pregnant on Clomid therapy.

The homeostatic model assessment (HOMA), a more complex fasting calculation, has been compared to clamp techniques with good results. HOMA is the product of fasting glucose (mg/dL) and insulin (μU/mL) divided by a constant[45]. One major limitation of HOMA rests on the previous reflection that many young PCOS women display stimulated but not fasting metabolic abnormalities. In fact, HOMA in young PCOS patients missed 50% of IR as compared to OGTT with insulin-AUC calculations[52]. G/I ratio correlated strongly with clamp-demonstrated IR in a small study of PCOS women - interestingly, both lean and obese PCOS women had evidence of IR. Sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) did not correlate with IR in this study[47], as has been previously postulated[53].

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.


There is no cure yet, but there are many ways you can decrease or eliminate PCOS symptoms and feel better. Your doctor may offer different medicines that can treat symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, excess hair, and elevated blood sugar. Fertility treatments are available to help women get pregnant. Losing as little as 5% excess weight can help women ovulate more regularly and lessen other PCOS symptoms. The ideal way to do this is through nutrition and exercise.
In patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) who are obese, endocrine-metabolic parameters markedly improve after 4-12 weeks of dietary restriction. Their sex hormone–binding globulin (SHBG) levels rise, and free testosterone levels fall by 2-fold. [66] Serum insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels also decrease. In patients with PCOS who are obese, weight loss is associated with a reduction of hirsutism and a return of ovulatory cycles in 30% of women, thereby improving pregnancy rates, as well as improving glucose tolerance and lipid levels. [12, 3]
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].
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.
Following the electronic and manual searches of bibliographies, forty six clinical studies were identified for inclusion/exclusion assessment (Figure 1). A pre-requisite for the inclusion of clinical studies was identified laboratory evidence explaining the mechanism of effect in reproductive endocrinology. Fifteen met the inclusion criteria [54–68]. Eight were randomised controlled trials (RCTs) including 762 women [61–68] (Table 2). Thirty one studies were excluded for the following reasons; investigation of isolated herbal chemicals (n = 3); inclusion of male subjects (n = 4); no pre-clinical evidence (n = 11) and conditions different to those specified (n = 13).

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.
This review has some limitations. We used a methodological approach which was deductive and not consistent with traditional rationale for herbal selection. Our inclusion criteria for clinical studies were specific and relied upon our identification of herbal medicines with preclinical (laboratory based) evidence explaining the mechanisms of reproductive endocrinological effects in oligo/amenorrhoea, hyperandrogenism and PCOS. Clinical studies were excluded from this review due to the absence of evidence for whole herbal extracts. This was the case for Camellia sinensis (green tea) for which only one laboratory study investigated the effects of injecting epigallocatechin, a catechin found in green tea in animals [76]. High quality clinical evidence for Camellia sinensis was not presented in this review due to the absence of pre-clinical data explaining the mechanism for effect for the whole herbal extract [77]. Mentha spicata (spearmint) was another herbal medicine excluded from this review despite the availability of high quality clinical evidence demonstrating testosterone lowering effects in women with PCOS [78]. We found no laboratory evidence describing the mechanism of action for Mentha spicata in hyperandrogenism. Camilla sinensis and Mentha spicata are examples of herbal medicines excluded from this review due to not meeting the inclusion criteria. Studies investigating western herbal medicines excluded from this review are provided in Tables 3, ​,44 and ​and55.

“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.”
The ultimate goal is to prevent metabolic disease. Metformin (1500 mg per day) compared to placebo in a prospective 12 wk randomized control trial decreased arterial stiffness (by peripheral pressure waveforms in the brachial artery) and endothelial function (measured by augmentation index). Metformin did not reduce HOMA-IR[82]. The study population was obese but young (mean age 30 years), demonstrating the ability to reduce CAD risk even in very young women. Metformin has reduced both carotid intimal media thickness and endothelin levels in obese PCOS women[83]. In many studies metformin has reduced both total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels[84-86], triglyceride levels[84] and increased HDL levels[87,88]. Animal studies have shown that acarbose given to insulin resistant rats decreased carotid intimal hyperplasia and blood flow velocities[89]. Taken as a whole, the ability of metformin (and likely other insulin sensitizing agents) to elicit an overall reduction in the risk for CAD may be easier than the ability to produce consistent measureable improvements.
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
meh. I think she takes selfies (including the body posi ones) because it helps her cultivate her image rather than because she thinks she's gorgeous. She's not like many of the other cows in that she doesn't try to hide her cellulite or mismatching eye sockets or her flab. Her imperfections feed into her junkie chic look, which is why calling them out every time she posts a picture ad nauseum doesn't make sense. She knows she has these features and doesn't seem to care, she mentions them herself, and she might even like how they fit into her style. She's totally comfortable with them and places a much higher importance on aesthetic than having a beautiful body.
Increasing evidence in animal models and in humans shows that sympathetic nerve activity controls ovarian androgen biosynthesis and follicular development. Thus, sympathetic nerve activity participates in the follicular development and the hyperandrogenism characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is the most prevalent ovarian pathology in women during their reproductive years. In this study, we mimic sympathetic nerve activity in the rat via "in vivo" stimulation with isoproterenol (ISO), a β-adrenergic receptor agonist, and test for the development of the polycystic ovary condition. We also determine whether this effect can be reversed by the administration of propranolol (PROP), a β-adrenergic receptor antagonist. Rats were treated for 10 days with 125 μg/kg ISO or with ISO plus 5 mg/kg PROP. The ovaries were examined 1 day or 30 days following drug treatment. While ISO was present, the ovaries had an increased capacity to secrete androgens; ISO + PROP reversed this effect on androgen secretory activity. 30 days after treatment, androstenedione secretion reverted to normal levels, but an increase in the intra-ovarian nerve growth factor (NGF) concentration and luteinizing hormone (LH) plasma levels was detected. ISO treatment resulted in follicular development characterized by an increased number of pre-cystic and cystic ovarian follicles; this was reversed in the ISO + PROP group. The lack of change in the plasma levels of progesterone, androstenedione, testosterone, or estradiol and the increased LH plasma levels strongly suggests a local intra-ovarian effect of ISO indicating that β-adrenergic stimulation is a definitive component in the rat polycystic ovary condition.
Medical management of PCOS is aimed at the treatment of metabolic derangements, anovulation, hirsutism, and menstrual irregularity. The use of insulin-sensitizing drugs to improve insulin sensitivity is associated with a reduction in circulating androgen levels, as well as improvement in both the ovulation rate and glucose tolerance. [3] The Endocrine Society has published a clinical practice guideline on hirsutism evaluation and treatment in premenopausal women. [51] ACOG notes that eflornithine in conjunction with laser treatment is superior to laser therapy alone in treating hirsutism. [3]
Herbal medicine may present a treatment option for women with oligo/amenorrhoea, hyperandrogenism and PCOS as an adjunct or alternative treatment to pharmaceuticals with a high degree of acceptability by women with PCOS [6]. Preliminary evidence for equivalent treatment effects were found for the two pharmaceuticals and three herbal medicines. These were bromocriptine, in the management of hyperprolactinaemia andVitex agnus-castus and clomiphene for infertility and ovulation induction and Cimicifuga racemosa and Tribulus terrestris. Herbal medicine had positive adjunct effects with the pharmaceuticals Spirinolactone in the management of hyperandrogenism (Glycyrrhiza Spp.), and clomiphene for PCOS related infertility (Cimicifuga racemosa). It is important however to highlight that evidence was provided by a limited number of clinical studies, some with significant risks for bias; particularly Tribulus terrestris, Glycyrrhiza glabra alone and in combination with Paeonia lactiflora and Paeonia lactiflora in combination with Cinnamomum cassia.
I found out I had PCOS when i was 19 years old after I had lost a baby at 23 weeks along. I had gott...en my period 2 times a year so every 6 months.. I was told I wouldnt be able to have kids.

So I wasnt so thrilled about it because I thought I would lose this one too. Well needlesa to say on July 3, 2013 I had a precious baby boy!! And continue to take my medication:) See More
Your doctor or nurse will look at your skin and measure your weight and blood pressure. They’ll ask questions about your period, any symptoms you may be having, and your personal and family health history. They may do a pelvic exam and blood tests to check your hormone levels, whether you may be pregnant, and more. In some cases, your doctor or nurse may recommend getting an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts.  

hi po dok..lst december2015 nag pa check.up po ako kc almost 4moths po ako d dinadatnan akala ko po buntis ako but,,my ob siad im not pregnant 🙁 pcos dawpo ako kaya pinag take ako ng provera for 5days after po nun dinatnan ako for 7days…then after po nun pinagtake ako ng gynera pills but until now po di pa ako dinandatnan..almost 2months na po..need ko na pu ba mag follow up sa ob ko..tnz po

Smoking cigarettes indoors can make things VERY grimy. I didn't think of that but yeah, maybe the cats don't like to lick the tar off their fur. I grew up with two indoor chain smokers for parents, and no matter how often I cleaned/dusted, my shit would look like this >>411657 all the damn time. It's like the tar just attracts every piece of dust. The walls, any white clothing, etc. all turned yellow. And everything I had always stank to the point that people assumed I smoked when I didn't. Smoking indoors is absolutely disgusting.


hello po nabasa kopo itong blog nyo. almost 1yr napo ako nag tetake ng Pills na nirekomenda po saken ng OBgyne doctor kopo. kase mo may PCOS po ako, kaso wala pong nangyayare, lalo pa po akong tumataba 🙁 eh samantalang 17 palang po ako. ano po ba magandang gawen? meron po ba akong pwedeng inumin na herbal medicine? Masydo napo kse akong matagal umiinom ng gamot baka po naman mag ka MAYOMA po ako tulad po ng lola ko 🙁 natatakot po ako, please help po doc-. thanks po

No universal definition of insulin resistance exists and therefore no standard clinical technique to measure insulin resistance exists. Insulin resistance can be thought of as a metabolic state where normal glucose homeostasis mechanisms fail to operate properly. Translating theory to clinical practice has been a source of frustration for many practitioners. The American Diabetes Association has characterized IR as a state of impaired metabolic response to insulin[43]. IR is characterized by an inability of normal amounts of insulin to achieve the normal predicted response, often in the clinical setting of central adiposity. To achieve euglycemia, the pancreas over secretes insulin[44]. Investigators define IR based on hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp techniques as a state of impaired glucose disposal in response to insulin[22]. Despite no consensus, clamp techniques have become the reference for understanding IR.

Increasing evidence in animal models and in humans shows that sympathetic nerve activity controls ovarian androgen biosynthesis and follicular development. Thus, sympathetic nerve activity participates in the follicular development and the hyperandrogenism characteristics of polycystic ovary syndrome, which is the most prevalent ovarian pathology in women during their reproductive years. In this study, we mimic sympathetic nerve activity in the rat via "in vivo" stimulation with isoproterenol (ISO), a β-adrenergic receptor agonist, and test for the development of the polycystic ovary condition. We also determine whether this effect can be reversed by the administration of propranolol (PROP), a β-adrenergic receptor antagonist. Rats were treated for 10 days with 125 μg/kg ISO or with ISO plus 5 mg/kg PROP. The ovaries were examined 1 day or 30 days following drug treatment. While ISO was present, the ovaries had an increased capacity to secrete androgens; ISO + PROP reversed this effect on androgen secretory activity. 30 days after treatment, androstenedione secretion reverted to normal levels, but an increase in the intra-ovarian nerve growth factor (NGF) concentration and luteinizing hormone (LH) plasma levels was detected. ISO treatment resulted in follicular development characterized by an increased number of pre-cystic and cystic ovarian follicles; this was reversed in the ISO + PROP group. The lack of change in the plasma levels of progesterone, androstenedione, testosterone, or estradiol and the increased LH plasma levels strongly suggests a local intra-ovarian effect of ISO indicating that β-adrenergic stimulation is a definitive component in the rat polycystic ovary condition.
Clinical trials have shown that metformin can effectively reduce androgen levels, improve insulin sensitivity, and facilitate weight loss in patients with PCOS as early as adolescence. [55, 56, 57, 58] One study concluded that the use of metformin throughout pregnancy was associated with a 9-fold decrease in gestational diabetes in women with PCOS. [59] In addition to having the potential to reduce gestational diabetes in pregnant women with PCOS, metformin may also reduce the risk of preeclampsia in this population. [60]
SA, JA, CS and AB conceived of the study and participated in its design and coordination. SA carried out the search of the literature. SA, JA and CS participated in study inclusion or exclusion. SA performed data extraction and CS, JA and AB reviewed the quality of data. SA, JA and AB designed and edited the tables. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.

The principle infertility treatment initially includes preconception guidelines and the use of drugs to induce mono- or bifollicular ovulation. Other therapeutic modalities may also be employed, such as exogenous gonadotropins or laparoscopic ovarian drilling, which are considered to be second-line treatments, or in vitro fertilization (IVF), which is a third-line treatment 9. Thus, the choice of the most appropriate treatment depends on the patient's age, presence of other factors associated with infertility, experience and duration of previous treatments and the level of anxiety of the couple.
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.
