Can you please talk about of the main issues and complications involving pcos and diabex?

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.

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.

Yes and no: Depo-provera will reduce the multiple ovarian cyst formation and inhibit some of the symptoms of PCOS.

I was diagnosed a year ago of pcos and now I undergo tvs and resultng that I have intramural myoma? Is it related? Is it psible that I can bear a child

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.

Evaluation: There are lots of reasons for this. But if you think you have pcos you really need to be evaluated it is important to know if you have pre-diabetes. And with pcos, there is no substitute for exercise, not even dieting. Exercise is most important for weight control..
