How long can contraceptive pills be taken for treatment of PCOD? - Online Doctor Chats
i recently took my wife to a gynecologist and she suggested we get her thyroid tests and a scan for poly cystic ovaries for weight issues done. On doing that, her thyroid tests came out normal but was diagnosed with poly cystic ovaries. The doctors advised that she take the contraceptive pills XXXXXXX for six months to deal with the problem. The concern is if she should take those pills for so long with all the possible side effects.
i am attaching report
Is there any problem in attaching the report?
Are you there?
it is uploading, net connection is bit slow
Lets discuss the issue till the report gets uploaded.
during ovulation due to lack of hormone there is difficulty in ova release.
this leads to formation of the cyst
The pills the doctor has prescribed is regular contraceptive pills which will regularize the hormonal cycle.
I feel as you are not planning currently thats the doctor has prescribed you these pills.
Is there any other concerns you wish to discuss with me?
As my wife has gained lot of wait in last two year around 10+ kg she has gained
so sh should not take these pills ?
Here the weight is due to PCOD and if she doesn take pills she wont be able to normalise the hormones.
For this she has to follow regular physical exercises.
along with diet restriction.
