Several: Diabetes and pcos affect your blood vessels. So overall life expectancy is altered. When blood vessels get imaged more the consequences can lead to blindness, heart attacks, strokes, amputations. Etc. So controlling diabates especially with pcos is very important. It is easier to prevent problems than treat them.
I have pcos and I am on menterform how long do they take to work and how long should I wait to speak to my doctor again?
3 months: Metformin can help women with PCOS in several ways. It can help regulate periods, help with weight loss and it can lower sugars if they are elevated. It takes several months to work so make an appointment for follow up in about 3 months after you start the medication.
Not directly: PCOS does not directly cause gallstones but someone with PCOS could coincidentally also have gallstones. Both are fairly common medical issues. Risk factors for both include being female and struggling with weight.
Yes and no: Depo-provera will reduce the multiple ovarian cyst formation and inhibit some of the symptoms of PCOS. The downside is that once the Depo-provera is stopped then the same ovulation difficulties will reappear and spontaneous ovulation/fertility is still a problem Moreover, Depo-provera can cause irregular bleeding/spotting.
None: Not at all until unless you are taking medications which are not good for pregnancy
Not the same...: PCOS is a metabolic syndrome that is caused by insulin resistance. It results in many symptoms such as extra hair growth, irregular periods, dark skin under arms and around neck, etc. Post-pill amenorrhea is a few months where there is no period after you have been on the pill. Best wishes!
Conception with pics: There is a lot of variation in the amount of time that it takes to conceive with pcos. People with pcos often ovulate irregularly. Sometimes inexpensive medications such as metformin, clomid, or letrozole can help people with infertility related to pcos achieve pregnancy if natural attempts are unsuccessful. Talking to your doc will definitely get you on the right track.
Yes, it can: Infertility is one of the major symptoms of the disease, however that doesn't make you sterile, with treatment of the condition you can get pregnant, best wishes

Unrelated: The pcos and the fibroid are unrelated. The pcos implies the brain and the ovaries are onto communicating well. It can take specialized medications to get you to ovulate but usually pregnancy is able to be achieved. The fibroid can cause problems with early pregnancy if the pregnancy were to implant over the fibroid. It might be wise to have the fibroid removed before attempting pregnancy.

How much weight do I have to lose to see an improvement in PCOS and naturally regulate my cycles? 240lbs right now
10 %: A goal of 10 % weightloss has shown health improvement. No telling if it will change the PCOS and regulate your cycles. PCOS has been shown to have a genetic component. Birth control pills can regulate your cycle if you are not trying to get pregnant. A 24 pound weight loss would be a goal.See 1 more doctor answer
