Genetic + lifestyle : Polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos is a condition that shows irregular periods, excessive androgens (male hormones) and metabolic disorders (type 2 or gestational diabetes, abnormal BP and lipids, Insulin resistance syndrome, etc). There is a genetic component that cannot be changed. However pcos patients can make lifestyle change (weight loss, regular exercise) that will control effects of pcos. ...Read more

I believe I have PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) I am going to get tested for it, but my question for you is, can PCOS ever be cured?
Yes: Women with pcos generally are anovulatory and do not ovulate. However, there is always the possibility that you can have an occasional ovulatory cycle. Problem is, you never know when it could happen, and timing intercourse is difficult. If you do not want to get pregnant, you should think about some method of birth control. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Why is pcos commonly reffered to as polycystic ovarian disease? My dr. Told my it's a syndrome and that i can get rid of it. Is it true?
Choice of words: "syndrome" is a group of symptoms and signs with a common underlying pathophysiology. "disease" suggests a common cause to all cases. Entities such as adult-onset diabetes and pcos blend into each other, as both have to do with genetics, lifestyle, and environment. Call it either -- little difference, let's treat it. Aerobic fitness is often a great help for pcos. ...Read more
Can i get pregnant if there is no ejaculation or pre ejaculation? I also have polycystic ovarian syndrome
Yes: Those little guys can sneak out even without ejaculation and it only takes one. Granted, odds lower and with your pcos you don't ovulate regularly which reduces chances of pregnancy, but all it takes is one egg and one sperm. If you don't want pregnancy, don't play roulette that these things in combo somehow constitute birth control. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a severe case of polycystic ovarian syndrome and im on bc pills, will i be able to get pregnant and have children?
Yes: Women with pcos, even severe, can conceive but they usually need the help of a fertility specialist or ob/gyn in order to induce ovulation and to exclude other reasons for infertility. After a certain age the biggest limitation for pregnancy becomes the age of the female as opposed to the lack of ovulation. ...Read more
I have polycystic ovarian syndrome. Should i start taking estrogen? I get hair in weird places, like on my chin and neck
No: With pcos the estrogen level is chronically elevated and additional estrogen will not help. Ocp's (which do contain estrogen) however would likely help by suppression of the ovaries. The hair changes you notice are probaly due to increased testosterone levels seen with pcos and would probably improve with ocp's as well. ...Read more
