I was diagnosed with this disease last year and I was given medicines to take for some months. It help me a bit in my monthly discharge but once the medicines were over I was back to my irregular periods.  I hate taking those medicines and I can't imagine having to take them until I reach menopause. Does anyone know if there is any cure for this disease? Any other woman who experiences this to share their story. It will really help me.♀️

Polycystic ovary syndrome develops numerous small collections of fluid called follicles and may fail to regularly release eggs. Women with PCOS have hormonal imbalances and metabolism problems that may affect their overall health and appearance. To decrease the effects you should maintain weight reduce insulin levels and restore ovulation, limit intake of carbohydrates, be active and exercise will help lower sugar levels. And oral contraceptives are the most common and effective option for managing PCOS symptoms and help regulate menstrual flow.

I used to take the pills but am just tired of taking them. How many more years will I be taking the pills if I continue taking them. I really wish it got better by itself.
Have you tried asking you doctor for other brands of pills or any other alternative?

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2016. As you probably know, we may have different symptoms. My initial symptom was not having my period so I was prescribed birth control pills. I changed my OB recently and she recommended a 4th generation birth control pill. She said it has lower dosage and that it will reduce side effects, like weight gain. I've been on it for 6 months and it is working well for me. Another option she gave me was to take Metformin. If you do take Metformin, you need to use other forms of protection.
