Primolut And Pcos
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

I have pcos and am on sprintec and metformin. Is sprintec a proper birth control to treat pcos and its symptoms like acne?
Sprintec is one : Of many useful tools for pcos. It contains a low androgen progestin norgestimate which is useful for women with pcos and androgen sensitivity. Sprintec and tri-sprintec are the generics for ortho cyclen and ortho tri-cyclen. Sounds like a reasonable plan. Give it a try! ...Read more
How can i get rid of PCOS ovarian cysts naturally? i am taking metformin and provera (medroxyprogesterone)
Part of you: PCOS is not something you get rid of....it's something that's part of your nature. You can do things that keep your weight at a reasonable point like diet and exercise. The more weight you gain, the worse the PCOS can get. Metformin helps some, doesn't help others. Provera (medroxyprogesterone) is just to keep your periods regular. You may need fertility meds to help you ovulate when you want to conceive. ...Read more

Ttc 3yrs, diagonised with ir and have middle fat. Multiple cyst in left ovary only. No acne, regular periods. Do I have pcos? On metformin + bc pill..
Possible: If you have been on ocp's for a while many of the cysts present with pcos may have resolved. The regular periods would be normal on ocp's, but if you were regular before starting ocp's, then maybe you do not have pco's. If you do have pcos, then when you stop the pill your cycles will likely become irregular, more cysts will develop on your ovaries, and your fsh wil exceed your lh. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mild pcos..just longer regular cycles and cysts on ovaries. Dont want bcp have no acne etc. Taking turmeric, cranberry and vit D pill.good start?
What is goal?: You don't mention other symptoms so perhaps your only goal is shorter, "more normal" periods. Perhaps the supplements and vitamin D will have a favorable effect. But it is also important to evaluate the potential metabolic effects of PCOS (insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia) and treat/deal with those. If/when fertility is desired, further, probably hormonal, treatment will likely be needed. ...Read more
PCOS. On Clomid, (clomiphene) no ovulation, no period, no ferning, since mid Dec. Will progesterone cream helps?
Still possible: Irregular periods are caused when your body's signals for ovulation and menstruation get confused by hormonal imbalances that can be related to your thyroid (TSH), pituitary (LH/FSH/prolactin), ovaries (estrogen/progesterone). Many external factors can affect the hormones: malnutrition, stress, obesity, for example. Diet and exercise can get ovulation back on track. See a GYN though. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will Metformin, Aldactone, (spironolactone) Primolut N & Duphaston affect HPV? In other words, cause CIN (infections)? I'm taking meds for my PCOS. Gyno prescribed it

I menstruated on sep 7.I have irregular periods after Depo-Provera and stillbirth, doc put me on metformin.No pcos just a little insulin resistance when will i ovulate? Ttc
See a REI specialist: Sorry about the stillbirth. Insulin resistance can be part of pcos or type 2 diabetes. Depending on how long you took the depo shot and when you stopped, it could still be affecting your periods. A reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist can figure out why you're irregular and determine whether and when you're ovulating based on your history, with blood tests and/or ultrasound scans. ...Read more
Not married. PCOS. On metformin. Should I also take anti-androgen meds now too? And Clomid (clomiphene)? Or I should only take metformin, exercise & healthy diet?
See Below...: I would only recommend Clomid (clomiphene) if you are trying to get pregnant. It is not recommended for long-term use or just to treat PCOS. Spironolactone (antiandrogen) is a good addition if you have excessive hair growth around your mouth or other places that are unusual for a women. Excercise and weight loss are are the best treatment for PCOS and work well in motivated women. Best wishes! ...Read more
Why can't my general practitioner prescribe metformin or clomid (clomiphene)?I have pcos off pill since january no periods
Scope of Care.: Depends upon why they are prescribing the med. In general it is not wise for a gp to prescribe meds out of their area of expertise or practice. Using metformin to treat pcos sounds like a good gp fit, but using Clomid (clomiphene) may be a step too far. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
