The first step in diagnosing PCOS is to have a complete history and physical examination performed by a trained health care provider. A careful history and physical examination can detect whether androgen excess is causing male-pattern hair growth (hirsutism), acne or hair loss and whether ovulation is occurring normally. Physical examination also can detect high blood pressure and increased abdominal obesity as risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease in individuals who are overweight.

You heard that right. But first, don’t believe what you may have heard about special diets for polycystic ovary syndrome. Some women lose more weight and feel better on a higher-protein, lower-carbohydrate plan, but the research isn’t conclusive. Remember, the Penn State researchers found a low-calorie, low-fat meal replacement diet proved successful for some women but there is no one perfect diet that will be right for everyone.8 In fact, when researchers from Australia’s University of Adelaide and Monash University reviewed five PCOS diet studies involving 137 women, they concluded that PCOS symptoms improved on any diet the women followed.9
With all of these options, it can’t be stressed enough that a woman will be making a choice about what’s most important to her in the moment. If a woman wants to get pregnant, she can’t also treat male hormone problems (excess hair growth, male-pattern hair loss, acne) simultaneously — those are two conflicting goals. But there’s a bright spot: Once she does get pregnant, the high levels of estrogen in her system help suppress hair growth, notes Dunaif.
Gymnema (Gymnema sylvestre) This is a common herb used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine and has been called the herbal form of Metformin.3 It is an anti-diabetic that is characterized by insulin modulating activity which means it regulates insulin levels while controlling sugar or carbohydrate cravings. Gymnema actually numbs the sweet taste areas of the taste buds which helps suppress appetite. Some research has indicated that this herb might stimulate production of cells in the pancreas which in turn increases the levels of insulin in the body.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) indicate that lifestyle modifications such as weight loss and increased exercise in conjunction with a change in diet consistently reduce the risk of diabetes. This approach has been found to be comparable to or better than treatment with medication and should therefore be considered first-line treatment in managing women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). [2, 3] These modifications have been effective in restoring ovulatory cycles and achieving pregnancy in obese women with PCOS. Weight loss in obese women with PCOS also improves hyperandrogenic features.
2. Two studies investigated the ovulation rates, number of corpus luteum and follicle characteristics in rats with polycystic ovaries following exposure to various doses of Tribulus terrestris[46, 47]. 2. Equivalence of Tribulus terrestris and three ovulation induction pharmaceuticals evaluated ovulation in women with oligo/anovular infertility (n = 148) [60].G 2. No oestrogenic effects in female reproductive tissues [51].
The prescription cream eflornithine HCl can slow the growth of new hair when applied as directed on the face and other areas – but it won’t remove existing hair. 20,21 Your doctor may also prescribe a medication called an anti-androgen. In the United States, a medication called spironolactone is used to slow new hair growth. In other countries, cyproterone acetate is widely used but it is not available in the United States.  

I've been taking mine for several years. I believe it's made me a bit stupid. And it is a BITCH when you don't have it, so I don't know what the fuck she is doing to herself. You feel absolutely horrible. You're used to that sedation, and not only that, but it feels terrible to walk around without taking it. The weird thing is I never imagined ever abusing it until I saw someone that did. What a fucked up thing to abuse.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts. The name polycystic ovary syndrome describes the numerous small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) that form in the ovaries. However, some women with this disorder do not have cysts, while some women without the disorder do develop cysts.
But mostly if food requires more preparation than sticking a spoon into ice cream containers or tearing open a bag of chips, Luna can't prepare it. So I can see her using rice she could use in a meal because she is starving every other day because ain't no way is that girl gonna cook rice. She'd probably nod off in the middle and burn down the house so it is probably a net good she's about to give Pat a toe-cheesy sock full of possibly contaminated rice.
Su médico le medirá el nivel de insulina y glucosa en busca de diabetes o resistencia a la insulina (uso ineficiente de insulina por el cuerpo). Muchas mujeres con síndrome de ovario poliquístico tienen estos trastornos. Su médico quizá también le mida el nivel de colesterol y triglicéridos, ya que con frecuencia, son anormales en mujeres con el síndrome. Una vez que su médico haga un diagnóstico, decidirán juntos la mejor manera de tratar y controlar el problema.

magandang araw po, ask lang po ang resulta po ba ng mataas na PROLACTIN ay nangangahulugang hindi magkaka anak ang isang babae? sobrang taas po ng prolactin level result q 62.77 ng/ml kumpara sa normal na 5 – 25 ng/ml., anu pu ba ang pwedeng gawin para mapababa sa normal ito? maraming salamat po at sana’y masagot ang tanong q kung meron kau pagkakataon, godbless po!
“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.”
Although the exact cause of PCOS is not known, there are several factors that are associated with the condition. It is closely linked to high levels of hormones such as insulin and testosterone, but it is not clear if this is a cause or an effect of the condition. Additionally, it appears to run in some families, which suggests that there may be a genetic link in the pathogenesis of the condition.

Simple calorie-burning mga gawain tulad ng paglalakad, paglangoy o pagbibisikleta ay maaaring maging kapaki-pakinabang masyadong. Ang mga gawaing ito ay maaaring makatulong sa iyo na malaglag off labis na timbang. Ito rin ay nagtataguyod ng pagiging sensitibo sa insulin. Basta ilagay sa isip na hindi resort sa mga gawain na maaaring maging sanhi ng labis na pilay sa iyong katawan at / o pagkaubos.


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.

Human speak: Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female reproductive disorders; affecting approximately 10% or more of women worldwide. PCOS is a big deal because it can lead to infertility and other health problems. The common symptoms associated with PCOS are irregular or no periods and anovulation (meaning you don’t ovulate, or ovulate rarely), increases in androgen hormones (like testosterone) and luteinizing hormone (which usually kicks off ovulation, but is persistently high in women with PCOS), and in some cases, insulin resistance and obesity. There is currently no “cure” for PCOS, just management of symptoms.

Obese women with PCOS may have an increased risk of congenital anomalies (heart and neural tube defects), gestational diabetes mellitus [odds ratio (OR) 2.94; 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.70-5.08], hypertensive disorders during pregnancy (OR 3.67; 95% CI: 1.98-6.81) [mainly preeclampsia (OR 3.47; 95% CI: 1.95-6.17)], miscarriages, preterm births (OR 1.75; 95% CI: 1.16-2.62), the need for intensive unit care (OR 2.31; 95% CI: 1.25-4.26), increased perinatal mortality (OR 3.07; 95% CI: 1.03-9.21) 11,12 and Caesarean delivery (OR 1.74; 95% CI: 1.38-2.11) 12. The risk for preterm births and preeclampsia appears to be associated with maternal hyperandrogenism 13.
You may feel that it is difficult to lose excess weight and keep it off, but it is important to continue the effort. Your efforts help reduce the risk for developing serious health complications that can impact women with PCOS much sooner than women without PCOS. The biggest health concerns are diabetes, heart disease, and stroke because PCOS is linked to having high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Combination birth control pills: Oral contraceptives (OCs) containing estrogen plus progestin help you manage PCOS symptoms by normalizing your menstrual cycle. By reducing levels of male hormones, OCs can help control excess hair growth and acne, too. You’ll usually shed the lining of your uterus every 28 days while taking an oral contraceptive, which also reduces your risk for endometrial cancer. Oral contraceptive pills are sometimes prescribed for women before they begin fertility treatment because these female hormones reduce the “male” androgen levels. But it’s important to know that they won’t help restore ovulation.19
PCOS is genetic and presents differently in each woman of childbearing age. For some women, symptoms emerge shortly after they begin menstruating. Others may not show signs of the disorder until later in life, or after substantial weight gain, and many don’t receive a diagnosis until they are struggling to get pregnant. A community-based prevalence study published in 2010 found that approximately 70 percent of the 728 women in the cohort had PCOS, but had no pre-existing diagnosis.  
For those women that after weight loss still are anovulatory or for anovulatory lean women, then the ovulation-inducing medications clomiphene citrate[74] and FSH are the principal treatments used to promote ovulation.[medical citation needed] Previously, the anti-diabetes medication metformin was recommended treatment for anovulation, but it appears less effective than clomiphene.[medical citation needed][90]
The unfortunate truth is that there is no cure for PCOS. But because the disorder can have a profound effect on your health and well-being, treatment is a must. There is one important thing to know about your options: Because the cause of PCOS is still unknown, appropriate therapies are based on a woman’s individual concerns. Is she bothered most about excess hair growth? Does she want to have a baby? Does she need to get her periods back on track?

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]
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].
Fertilización in vitro (FIV). La FIV puede ser una opción en caso de que los medicamentos no funcionen. En una FIV, se fecunda tu óvulo con el esperma de tu pareja en un laboratorio y luego se lo implanta en tu útero para que se desarrolle. En comparación con los medicamentos, la FIV tiene mayores tasas de embarazo y mejor control sobre tu riesgo de tener mellizos y trillizos (al permitir que tu médico transfiera un solo óvulo fertilizado en el útero).

In vitro fertilization represents the third-line treatment for infertility in women with PCOS 9. However, if the initial assessment demonstrates a bilateral tubal occlusion and/or concentration of recovered motile sperm less than or equal to 5 million, this treatment becomes the first option along with lifestyle changes. The risk of OHSS is the main complication of the highly complexity treatment in women with PCOS. Thus, to minimize this side effect, ovarian stimulation should be initiated with low doses of gonadotropins (100 to 150 IU of FSHr) and the pituitary should be suppressed with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) antagonist because this method is associated with a reduced risk of OHSS compared with an agonist (29 randomized control trials (RCTs); OR 0.43; 95% CI: 0.33 to 0.57) 32. If the patient presents with clinical and ultrasound signs of OHSS, final oocyte maturation should be performed with a GnRH agonist and embryos should be frozen and transferred in a subsequent cycle 33,34. Infertile women with PCOS may present with better general oocyte and embryo quality rates; however, the clinical pregnancy and live birth rates are similar to those observed in normo-ovulatory women without PCOS 35.
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.
High levels of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that controls how the food you eat is changed into energy. Insulin resistance is when the body's cells do not respond normally to insulin. As a result, your insulin blood levels become higher than normal. Many women with PCOS have insulin resistance, especially those who have overweight or obesity, have unhealthy eating habits, do not get enough physical activity, and have a family history of diabetes (usually type 2 diabetes). Over time, insulin resistance can lead to type 2 diabetes.
