In brief: Amy OCP

The first line treatment for pcos is cycle control and ovarian suppression with cyclic hormones - usually with ocp's (or nuva ring or Ortho Evra patch).
Suppression of the ovaries will eventually result in a decrease in circulation testosterone levels.

In brief: Low androgenic BC

That has a Progesterone hat's not androgenic - there are many brands and generics - ask your gynecologist for one.
