Pcos And Migraines
I have pcos, migraine headaches, and i binge eat. What are the best ways for me to lose weight? And the right foods to eat?
Treat your PCOS: It's possible that your pcos is causing Insulin resistance, which causes you to eat more and gain weight. Some medications, like metformin, are given to patients to control related symptoms. You might discuss this with your gynecologist or family doctor. Another option is topiramate, used for migraine, but also helps you lose weight. ...Read more
Pcos is a metabolic disorder affecting 8-10% of women that may cause irregular periods, acne or increased hair growth, infertility or subfertility, and increases the risk of diabetes. To diagnose pcos, we need 2 out of 3 of: 1. Irregular or no periods 2. Acne, hair growth and/or blood tests showing too much male-type hormones (androgens) 3. Ultrasound showing large ovaries ...Read more
Probably not: Meprate is a synthetic progestin (medroxyprogesterone acetate) used to control bleeding or sometimes in pcos to induce menstrual bleeding. There are a variety of side effects that can be annoying. Acne is one of them so meprate is not a good choice for controlling acne. Management of elevated testosterone in pcos may help. ...Read more
I have migraine and pcos ..... What medication should i perfer ... Is it possible for me to concive ?
Yes, but...: PCOS may make it harder to conceive, but some women with PCOS conceive without the assistance of reproductive technologies, and some with it. Migraine medications while trying to become pregnant, while pregnant, and while lactating is a longer conversation which I would be happy to have with you. I'm available for consults if you'd like to discuss further. ...Read more

Asked a question about hair growth. Told maybe pcos and to try yaz. My periods aren't irregular though. And Yaz is the worst. Gave me migraines.
Any OCP will do: Any oral birth control pill can help. Oral birth control pills increase your sex hormone binding globulin, a protein that will help to bind testosterone thus making testosterone levels lower. If you're heavy or overweight you may have excess testosterone as well. Mechanical removal of unwanted hair is an option: electrolysis, tweeting, laser, even at home laser. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have migraines & i can't be on bc but have irregular period & afraid i'm not ovulating but tests have ruled out pcos what do I do to bring my period?
I have moderate PCOS, which has wreaked havoc on my skin and made me lose a lot of hair. I was prescribed Yaz but am scared to take it, as I occasionally get headaches? Neurologist said they could be migraines, and I know that increases stroke risk?
Migraine and stroke: Do you have aura with your migraines? The stroke risk is increased if you have migraine with aura and use estrogen-containing birth control. And the stroke risk increases from very very low in a 19-year-old to still very low but not as low. A pill with less estrogen or a progesterone-only pill would be safer. Also, if you smoke, quit! Aura + estrogen birth control + smoking raises stroke risk more ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
