Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello and welcome.
I'm not a reproductive endocrinologist, but I am an OB/GYN and have treated many women with PCOS and problems similar to your own. If you would like my assistance, please tell me how old you are and whether you've had any treatment other than removal of the polyps. Thank you.
Are you overweight?
Do you have extra body hair? Thanks.
Thank you. Women tend to have periods, even when they don't ovulate. It's just that the periods won't be regular.
PCOS will definitely affect your fertility. Women with PCOS don't ovulate much, and you can't get pregnant without ovulating. However, most women with PCOS can become pregnant. Sometimes it's with a little help from their doctor.
If you wish to become pregnant at this time, I would see your doctor. Ovulation can be induced using pills each month.
If you don't wish to become pregnant at this time, then progesterone pills taken each month can help make your periods normal. Your uterus doesn't know whether the progesterone comes from your ovaries after ovulation or from a pill.
If you don't wish to become pregnant at this time, going on the pill can be beneficial. It normalizes your hormones and lowers your testosterone. This results in regular periods and less development of extra body hair.
It's one type of progesterone you can use. It's not really much different from Prometrium, which is a pill that is also bio-identical. Either one does the same thing, which is to make your uterus think that you ovulated.
We still don't understand PCOS very well, or why it happens to so many women. I would recommend that you take progesterone for now, and when you wish to become pregnant, then see an OB/GYN if you're not ovulating.
No. Taking the pill, which has estrogen and progesterone, would lower you testosterone and lh levels. Progesterone would just help your period to be normal.
That could be. Continue with the plant based diet. Don't be too surprised if it doesn't help you to continue to ovulate. But if it does, that would be great. A plant based diet is generally really good.
Sounds good. Hopefully they will help you get where you want to go.
