Las mujeres con PCOS pueden tomar medicamentos para la fertilidad como Clomid o inyectárselos a fin de inducir la ovulación. Las mujeres también pueden tomar medicamentos para aumentar la sensibilidad a la insulina o esteroides (para reducir el nivel de andrógeno) a fin de inducir la ovulación. Algunos estudios también indican que tomar una dosis baja de aspirina, que ayuda a prevenir la coagulación en el recubrimiento uterino y mejora la circulación, puede mejorar la probabilidad de un embarazo.

A neck lump or nodule is the most common symptom of thyroid cancer. You may feel a lump, notice one side of your neck appears to be different, or your doctor may find it during a routine examination. If the tumor is large, it may cause neck or facial pain, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, cough unrelated to a cold, hoarseness or voice change.

The advantages of CC use are low cost, oral administration, few side effects (flushing, headache, visual disturbances and abdominal discomfort), the induction of monofollicular development in most cases 16 and a low rate of multiple gestations (2 to 13%) 17. The initial dose is 50 mg/day for five days (starting between the second and fifth day of the menstrual cycle) and may be increased to 150 mg/day 17,18; however, doses greater than 100 mg/day usually do not offer additional benefits (may be useful in obese women) 18. The ovulation rate may reach 75 to 80% 19 with a conception rate of 22% per cycle 20 and a cumulative pregnancy rate between 60 and 70% in six cycles 9. There is no evidence that the administration of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in the mid-cycle increases ovulation rates (OR 0.99; 95% CI: 0.36-2.77) or clinical pregnancy (OR 1.02; 95% CI: 0.56-1.89) 21,22. CC treatment should be limited to six ovulatory cycles and US monitoring is not mandatory (it is recommended only in the first ovulatory cycle to adjust the dose based on the ovarian follicular growth and development and for endometrial assessment) 17,18. Additional cycles of ovulation induction with CC (maximum of twelve cycles) may be individually evaluated based on the cost-effectiveness and age of women and after discussion with the couple 9. The incidence of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS; increased capillary permeability with consequent third-space fluid sequestration and hemoconcentration) associated with the use of CC is low, approximately 1 to 6% 17,23.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is not a simple pathophysiologic process for which one treatment addresses all manifestations. It is a condition that occurs in approximately 5 to 10 percent of women of childbearing age.1 It can affect women in many different ways; therefore, physicians must individualize treatment goals and target treatment to specific manifestations. Comorbidities (e.g., cardiovascular risk factors, endocrinologic disease) and the patient's desire for pregnancy must be considered when choosing a treatment regimen.
why does literally everyone supposedly buy her everything? there's always some stranger who buys her something because she's counting change, or someone (not even just pat) buying her groceries, or someone buying her some shit she doesn't need. i need to move into her or her father's neighborhood if the community is full of people who just buy strangers things. the only way i'd believe that random people irl are always buying her things is if it was because they thought she was homeless. (sorry for my english)
Hola, hace 3 años me quitaron unos pólipos del endometrio y me diagnosticaron ovarios poliquísticos me han tratado tengo bastante sobrepeso perdí 17 kg y los volví a recuperar mi ginecólogo me recomendó tomar metformina y inofolic fert desde septiembre del año pasado estoy tomando el inofolic fert porque el dianben lo tuve que dejar ya que los efectos secundarios eran tener muchas diarreas y también padezco de colon irritable con lo cual me estaba haciendo bastante daño ahora mismo llevo 5 meses sin regla y me gustaría saber, sí el PCOS, me podría ayudar en mi caso
The name ‘Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome’ points to the ovaries because it was long considered to be a reproductive issue. But it is now widely accepted that polycystic ovaries develop as a result of endocrine disorders characterized by a series of hormone imbalances: hyperandrogenism (specifically excess testosterone) and Insulin Resistance due to excess insulin that can trigger a cascade of other hormonal problems.4 From a systemic point of view, the continuing and/or increase of PCOS symptoms is likely due to a continuing hormonal imbalance.

PCOS is associated with multiple metabolic defects, including metabolic syndrome. Twice as many women with PCOS have metabolic syndrome as in the general population, and about one-half of women with PCOS are obese.1,9 The presence of PCOS is also associated with a fourfold increase in the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus.10 There is an increased prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease,11,12 sleep apnea,13 and dyslipidemia14 in patients with PCOS, even when controlled for body mass index. Rates of cardiovascular disease are higher in patients with PCOS, but increased cardiovascular mortality has not been consistently demonstrated.15,16 Finally, there is evidence to suggest an increased risk of mood disorders among patients with PCOS.17,18
The pathogenesis of PCOS has been linked to altered luteinizing hormone (LH) action, insulin resistance, and a possible predisposition to hyperandrogenism.3–7 One theory maintains that underlying insulin resistance exacerbates hyperandrogenism by suppressing synthesis of sex hormone–binding globulin and increasing adrenal and ovarian synthesis of androgens, thereby increasing androgen levels. These androgens then lead to irregular menses and physical manifestations of hyperandrogenism.8
Niveles elevados de insulina. La insulina es una hormona que contribuye en el procesamiento de los alimentos hasta convertirlos en energía. La resistencia a la insulina se da cuando las células corporales no responden normalmente a la insulina. Como consecuencia, los niveles de insulina en sangre están más elevados de lo normal. Muchas mujeres con SOP tienen resistencia a la insulina, en especial aquellas con sobrepeso y obesidad, que tienen hábitos alimenticios poco saludables, no realizan suficiente actividad física o tienen antecedentes familiares de diabetes (por lo general, diabetes tipo 2). Con el paso del tiempo, la resistencia a la insulina puede desencadenar diabetes tipo 2.
Although aromatase inhibitors have been used in women with PCOS as an alternative method to avoid the anti-estrogenic effect of CC on the endometrium, these compounds are not typically used in clinical practice to treat infertility in these patients. Their mechanism of action is based on reducing the peripheral conversion of androgens to estrogens in ovarian granulosa cells by blocking aromatase. Consequently, a decrease in estrogen serum levels and in its negative feedback in the hypothalamus and pituitary gland is noted, resulting in increased endogenous gonadotropin release 41.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can be a daunting diagnosis to receive. The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association defines the condition as a “genetic, hormonal, metabolic, and reproductive disorder that affects women.” (1) One in 10 women have it (about half don’t know it), and the complications can include infertility, obesity, and mood disorders.
A secondary analysis of two randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trials that included 182 children of mothers with PCOS reported that children exposed to metformin had higher BMI and increased prevalence of overweight/obesity at 4 years of age. The study found that at 4 years of age, the metformin group had higher weight z-score than the placebo group; difference in means 0.38 (0.07 to 0.69), p=0.017, and higher BMI z-score; difference in means 0.45 (0.11 to 0.78), p=0.010. There were also more overweight/obese children in the metformin group; 26 (32%) than in the placebo group; 14 (18%) at 4 years of age; odds ratio (95% CI): 2.17 (1.04 to 4.61), p=0.038. More studies are needed to examine this association. 
The prevalence of depression in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is high; a study has shown it to be four times that of women without PCOS. Therefore, systematic evaluation of the effectiveness and safety of antidepressants for women with PCOS is important. We found no evidence to support the use or non‐use of antidepressants in women with PCOS, with or without depression. Well‐designed and well‐conducted randomised controlled trials with double blinding should be conducted.
PCOS is the most common endocrinopathy among reproductive-aged women in the United States, affecting approximately 7% of female patients.1 Although its exact etiology is unclear, PCOS is currently thought to emerge from a complex interaction of genetic and environmental traits. Evidence from one twin-family study indicates that there is a strong correlation between familial factors and the presence of PCOS.2
Although there isn’t a single cure for PCOS, lifestyle and nutritional changes can significantly improve the hormonal imbalances that are so prevalent in PCOS. Weight loss and exercise will reduce the levels of insulin and targeted nutritional supplements can help balance out the systemic biochemistry. A healthy lifestyle is the best medicine and through a comprehensive and consistent improvement in diet and activity, PCOS symptoms can be effectively managed or diminished, and some can be made to disappear completely.
Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) may suffer from irregular periods, excessive hair growth (hirsutism) and acne (pimples). High levels of serum androgens (male hormone) are one of the main features of PCOS. There is no good evidence from this review that statins improve menstrual regularity, spontaneous ovulation rate, hirsutism or acne, either alone or in combination with the combined oral contraceptive pill. There is also no good evidence that statins have a beneficial effect on hirsutism or acne (pimples) associated with PCOS. In women with PCOS, statins are effective in reducing serum androgen levels and decreasing bad cholesterol (LDL), but statins are not effective in reducing fasting insulin or insulin resistance. There is no good evidence available on the long‐term use of statins (alone or in combination) for the management of PCOS.
Los ovarios de la mujer tienen folículos, que son los sacos diminutos y llenos de líquido que contienen los óvulos. Cuando el óvulo madura, el folículo lo libera para que pueda desplazarse al útero para la fertilización. En mujeres con el síndrome, los folículos inmaduros se agrupan y forman quistes o bultos grandes. Los óvulos maduran con los grupos de folículos, pero los folículos no se abren para liberarlos.
The PCOS diagnosis is generally made through clinical signs and symptoms. The doctor will want to exclude other illnesses that have similar features, such as low thyroid hormone blood levels (hypothyroidism) or elevated levels of a milk-producing hormone (prolactin). Also, tumors of the ovary or adrenal glands can produce elevated male hormone (androgen) blood levels that cause acne or excess hair growth, thus mimicking the symptoms of PCOS.

The genetic component appears to be inherited in an autosomal dominant fashion with high genetic penetrance but variable expressivity in females; this means that each child has a 50% chance of inheriting the predisposing genetic variant(s) from a parent, and, if a daughter receives the variant(s), the daughter will have the disease to some extent. The genetic variant(s) can be inherited from either the father or the mother, and can be passed along to both sons (who may be asymptomatic carriers or may have symptoms such as early baldness and/or excessive hair) and daughters, who will show signs of PCOS. The phenotype appears to manifest itself at least partially via heightened androgen levels secreted by ovarian follicle theca cells from women with the allele. The exact gene affected has not yet been identified. In rare instances, single-gene mutations can give rise to the phenotype of the syndrome. Current understanding of the pathogenesis of the syndrome suggests, however, that it is a complex multigenic disorder.
