Brief Answer:
PCOS need management

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
AMH levels are basically to assess the ovarian reserve which is not an issue at your age.of 18.The increased levels indicates polycyclic ovaries. And yes they are a big apprehension to fertility. But good news is it is manageable.
A good ADA diet like a diabetic, avoidance of saturated fats and preferring omega 3 and 6, using vitamin D supplements and healthy lifestyle with focus on losing weight and exercise.
You also need to seek an endocrinologist for hormonal assessment to rule out any imbalance.

harmacologic treatments are reserved for so-called metabolic derangements, such as anovulation, hirsutism, and menstrual irregularities. First-line medical therapy usually consists of an oral contraceptive to induce regular menses.
If symptoms such as hirsutism are not sufficiently alleviated, an androgen-blocking agent may be added. First-line treatment for ovulation induction when fertility is desired is clomiphene citrate.
Medications used in the management of PCOS include the following:
Oral contraceptive agents (eg, ethinyl estradiol, medroxyprogesterone)
Antiandrogens (eg, spironolactone, leuprolide, finasteride)
Hypoglycemic agents (eg, metformin, insulin)
Selective estrogen receptor modulators (eg, clomiphene citrate)
Topical hair-removal agents (eg, eflornithine)
Topical acne agents (eg, benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin topical cream (0.02–0.1%)/gel (0.01–0.1%)/solution (0.05%), adapalene topical cream (0.1%)/gel (0.1%, 0.3%)/solution (0.1%), erythromycin topical 2%, clindamycin topical 1%, sodium sulfacetamide topical 10%)
Surgery options
Surgical management of PCOS is aimed mainly at restoring ovulation. Various laparoscopic methods include the following:
Laser drilling
Multiple biopsy
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close
The discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

My 16-year-old son has very bad acne and very sensitive skin. He is on cephalexin and sulfacetamide sodium. He says his face hurts all day. I don't think he used the topical solution today but his face still hurts. He has been putting on moisturizing lotions (many different types have been tried) to help deal with the pain, but they don't seem to help. He washes his face with Dove sensitive skin soap. Any suggestions for something to try for the pain. His face is not particularly red or anything, and he says his skin is very soft to the touch (probably from the lotions).

Hi my daughter has sensitive skin , some rosacea (redness) and has battled acne for several years. The only thing that ever worked was sodium sulfacetamide 10% pads in a urea vehicle. About a year and a half ago, they became unavailable and her acne came back. I searched the internet and found them again last month and her acne began to disappear. Now, that company has also stopped making them. I started reseaching again and came across all these warnings about the they may lead to Stevens Johnson syndrome and other concerns. Is that why so many companies have stopped making them? Do you know where I can order the pads from or is it just too risky? YYYY@YYYY

My dermatologist prescribed me with duac gel to use daily and sodium sulfacetamide to apply at night. I am also taking 100mg. of spironolactone daily for acne. My face gets super clear for about 3 or 4 months of using all of this and then starts breaking out terribly. I stop using my topical prescriptions for a while and then when I start using them again I have the same clear skin for a few months and then it stops working. Why does this happen and what can I do to help it?
