I have PCOS and hirutism - are there any other ways to manage the hormonal craziness than taking birth control? Would OTC supplements help at all?

OTC supplements: are a waste of money and potentially dangerous. Diet, exercise and weight loss will help. Talk w/your doctor about metformin, which can reduce the basic metabolic problem of insulin resistance and often restore normal menses and even fertility. BC only makes your periods regular, it doesn't treat any of the basic defects and, of course, keeps you infertile. ...Read more

I had yellow discharge for almost 2 months with no other symptoms, but now that I'm on birth control its gone. could it be hormonal? I have PCOS also.

Gynecologist: Yellow vaginal discharge usually means a vaginal infection, but since there is no further yellow discharge the situation appears resolved.

How are birth control pills and anti-androgens different in the aspect of lowering male hormones in a pcos woman?

How are birth control pills and anti-androgens different in the aspect of lowering male hormones in a pcos woman?

Significant: Ocp's lower the testosterone level by suppressing the ovaries and allowing many of the cysts to resolve (each cyst in pco produces testosterone in addition to estrogen). An anti-androgen such as spironolactone serves to block the testosterone receptors and does not affect the actual level of testosterone. ...Read more

I have pcos already have kids unable to conceive suffered ischemia stroke from metformin and hormonal birth control should I try Clomid (clomiphene) or femara?

I have pcos already have kids unable to conceive suffered ischemia stroke from metformin and hormonal birth control should I try Clomid (clomiphene) or femara?

Maybe either: In the us these drugs are only available by prescription, so i'd direct you to ask your own doctor. If they are available without prescription, it's your call. There are risks and side effects you should be aware of, but again its usually with a doctor to guide you. I'm afraid that discussion is not doable in a short online answer. ...Read more
