A 19-year-old female asked:

does hairiness caused by polycystic ovary syndrome usually go after taking hormone pills? (or some certain drugs for treatment this syndrome?)

Sometimes: Taking certain hormones can decrease the hair growth while you are on them. When the meds are stopped the hair growth comes back. There are different options of meds and many but not all women respond.

Can you explain how parathyroid hormone injections make bones stronger when too much parathyroid hormone made by the body weakens bones?

Good question!: Parathyroid hormone (pth_ causes two main effects - a decrease in phosphorous in the blood, and an increase in calcium. If a body makes too much PTH (constant, high levels) it will leach the calcium from the bones to keep the blood levels up. Injections, however, are intermittent, lower concentrations that can stimulate bone strengthening by absorbing the calcium in the bood.

When a fallopian tube is removed by surgery are the ovaries also removed?

No: Removal of the fallopian tube, salpingectomy, is a separate procedure from an oophorectomy, removal of the ovary. A diseased fallopian tube can be treated while keeping the ovary in place. They can be removed together, as a salpingo-oophorectomy in a woman that has completed childbearing.

Whats the best way to get pregnant with having polycystic ovarian syndrome?

Consider Clomid (clomiphene): With pcos, you do not ovulate regularly, or perhaps not at all. If you are overweight and/or have problems with glucose metabolism, it may be helpful to use diet (avoiding simple carbohydrates) and exercise first. That might reverse pcos and allow ovulation to resume. Clomid, (clomiphene) however, is the medication most often used for pcos-related infertility.
