Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to release eggs regularly. PCOS can disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycles and make it harder to get pregnant. High levels of male hormones also lead to unwanted symptoms like hair growth on the face and body.
Doctors generally prescribe lifestyle changes as the first line of therapy for PCOS, and they may be effective. Weight loss can treat PCOS symptoms and improve the odds of getting pregnant. Diet and aerobic exercise are two effective ways to lose weight. If a change in diet and exercise don't help, medication may be an alternative. PCOS symptoms may be eased with the use of birth control pills and metformin.
Myo-Inositol is a sugar-alcohol compound that acts to regulate a number of hormones in the body, including thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), and insulin. It is used widely as a supplement in Weight management, Insulin resistance, Blood Sugar regulation, Hirsutism, High Androgens, Acne, Thyroid support, Egg quality, Ovarian function, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
Metformin is a widely used biguanide drug due to its safety and low cost. It has been used for over 60 years to treat type 2 diabetes at the early stages because of its outstanding ability to decrease plasma glucose levels. Over time, different uses of metformin were discovered, and the benefits of metformin for various diseases and even ageing were verified. These diseases include cancers (e.g., breast cancer, endometrial cancer, bone cancer, colorectal cancer, and melanoma), obesity, liver diseases, cardiovascular disease, and renal diseases.
