I have pcos I want to get pregnant wats the best way to help me get pregnant as soon as possible?

Several options: If you have PCOS, there are several approaches. We find that attention to metabolic health is the most effective treatment. This means using a low carb high fat nutritional approach. Look up LCHF. In addition, we utilize metformin and birth control pill ovarian suppression. This total approach should be for 6-12 weeks prior to ovulation treatment with an oral drug like Letrozole or clomid (clomiphene). ...Read more

I have pcos you want to know how you get rid of the unwanted hair?

Hirsutism: The approach to hirsutism in pcos is aimed at the cause of pcos rather than its manifestation. Weight loss should be pursued. This will help decrease your testosterone level. Also, birth control pills will raise your female organ concentrations that may help as well. Spironolactone is known to counteract testosterone and is used in this case. ...Read more

Does evening primrose oil increase estrogen?  I think I'm estrogen dominant, I have PCOS and wanted to try using EPO. Should I try it?

In the only randomized trial to address this issue 56 symptomatic postmenopausal women were randomly assigned to EPO versus placebo for six months. There was no significant difference in symptoms.

Is a D&C dangerous? I have to get a polyp removed & i have pcos but I want kids in the future. Will the D&C cause scar tissue or problems later on?

Not usually: A D & C or a hysteroscopy and D & C are often performed to remove an Endometrial Polyp. There are risks as in any surgery. Scarring of the uterine lining is one of them, but does not usually occur. A polyp can also interfere with conception, is an abnormal growth, and should be removed.

However, it isn't a disease you can cure. Still, managing the effects by using medications or diet may minimize your need for intervention and aggressive treatment, especially if it's associated with being overweight. ...Read more
