Period 16 days earlier. Is it bcoz of the meds I'm taking & it's getting regularized? PCOS, and I'm on Metformin, Aldactone (spironolactone) &duphaston. Stop the meds?

Don't stop. You are taking medications for PCOS that are likely helping you regain regular ovulatory cycles, so your cycles and pattern of bleeding may change when you start. Hopefully the metformin will continue to work and help you regularize your ovulation and your cycles. For good care, you should discuss any changes to your medication regimen with your doctor who prescribed them for you. Read more...

Are metformin 500 mg and spironolactone helpful for pcos and adrenal hyperplasia?

Different disorders . Pcos is a diagnosis of exclusion when no other cause for high androgen levels is found. Cah causes elevated androgens. It isn't treated with metformin but rather with steroid suppression. Insulin sensitizing agents won't turn off adrenal androgen production in patients with cah. Spironolactone will help block the effects of androgens. It isn't usually used without an ocp in menstruating females. Read more...

Will Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) make PCOS worse, help, or keep it the same? Do I need to continue Metformin & Spironolactone while using Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone)?

DMPA generally stops (after few months) irregular bleeding from PCOS: It will NOT 1) make you ovulate (the contrary,) 2) it will not cure your PCOS, 3) it will not help you get pregnant. It stops periods and will reduce (or eliminate) your risk of endometrial hyperplasia. Read more...
Probably help. The main thing we try to do to treat PCOS is to suppress the function of the ovaries. DepoProvera does a good job of this for most patients. You still need to be on the Metformin and Spironolactone. This is something you should discuss with your Doctor. Read more...
