Decrease insulin res: Pcos is a manifestation of Insulin resistance, which indicates pre-diabetes or diabetes 2.There are many derangments including those of adrenal androgen, a higher free testosterone, eradication of/or irregular cycles. Hirsuitism and acne increase with these androgens. A woman's cycle becomes annovulatory. Glucophage (metformin) is the preferred treatment of the problem. Clomiphene is used to help ovulation.

Metformin.: As you may already know PCOS is often associated with insulin resistance. Many women are treated with metformin which is a diabetes drug. there are good meds for gout. Antiphospholipid syndrome is associated with blood clots which may be very dangerous. I thinkits time to see your physician who has to be very smart.

I am 29 year old. I am suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome. I start my treatment in kolkata. Now I want to conceive. So my doctor give me ovofa?

OK: That is Clomid (clomiphene) which is a medicine to help you ovulate. It is successful in many women with pcos. As long as you have a had a proper evaluation, that is fine to take. Certainly a good place to start! If it does not work you have some other options.

If ttc you need fertility testing first, and may need fertility treatment such as Insulin sensitizing medications (metformin) and ovulation induction treatments.

What is the treatment for polycystic ovarian disease pco?

What is the treatment for polycystic ovarian disease pco?

Depends, TTC or not?: If not trying to conceive birth control pills are often used, sometimes with antiandrogens like spironolactone as well to decrease acne/hair growth more than bc pills alone. If trying to conceive we use Insulin sensitizers like metformin, plus ovulation-inducing tablets - most commonly Clomid (clomiphene) or Letrozole - sometimes low-dose shots or ivf if needed. Surgery for pcos is no longer a good option.

The hallmark of PCOS: Is irregular ovulation and excess activity of androgens. This usually translates into irregular or absent periods and hair growth where you don't want it, and/or acne. There are other conditions that can mimic it, and they must be ruled out with a thorough examination and laboratory tests. Treatment is hormonal and goal-based.

Genetic + lifestyle: Polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos is a condition that shows irregular periods, excessive androgens (male hormones) and metabolic disorders (type 2 or gestational diabetes, abnormal BP and lipids, Insulin resistance syndrome, etc). There is a genetic component that cannot be changed. However pcos patients can make lifestyle change (weight loss, regular exercise) that will control effects of pcos.
