PCOS, overweight. Prescribed melodene contraceptive. Will it counteract hormonal imbalance?
I am a 26 year old female and have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome , the doc has put me on Melodene, this is the first time using a contraceptive but I was wondering if this will assist in my weight loss. I have tried various diet pills but nothing works, I try to follow a healthy diet but gynea said the polycystic ovary syndrome causes this and that melodene will assist with my hormone imbalance .
Contraceptive is prescribed to correct hormonal imbalance & not for weight loss. You need not take medicines for weight loss. Healthy diet & exercise (which be should be sweat inducing exercise at least 30min. daily: jogging/swimming/skipping/brisk walking) will definitely help in reducing weight, though in PCOS it may take longer to reduce weight. Just continue healthy diet & exercise. If it doesn't work & if your in severe obese category, then surgery will help.
Wish you good health.

Hi. I m a 17 y/o girl and for years now I have been struggling with hirsutism. I am overweight (I have 98kg/ 175 cm – 215,6 lbs/5’9’’). At first, I thought my hormones weren t okay, so I checked my thyroid gland hormones (TSH : 1,8 mlU/L ; FT3: 4,4 pmol/L; FT4: 15,3 pmol/L), testosterone (2,4; 2,88; 3,08; nmol/L - I did it three times, and normal level, according to this test is 0,3 – 3,4 for women and 9,4 – 33,5 for men), cortizol (410 nmol/L), ACTH (47,3 pg/mL, normal lvl: 50 pg/mL) FSH: (8,28; 8,65; 3,64), LH (3,62; 4,49; 10,70), progest. (1,61; 0,82; 0,71), estradiol (0,171; 0,114; 0,097), prolactine (285; 290; 210My periods used to be pretty regular (every 4 to 6 weeks), until this year. I had my period normally in January, but after that, I had it again in April, after taking dydrogesterone, and again in July, after taking the same pills. Now, my endocrinologist said I have PCOS, but my gyno says that I have no “proof”, because my hormones are okay, so I really don’t know what to do. My biggest concern is that I’m REALLY hairy, and I’m not exaggerating. I have hair on my arms, around my nipples and chest, below my belly button . I also have really hairy thighs, fingers and toes, not to mention my moustache, beard and side burns. I am really ashamed to wear a ponytail or go to the beach in a bikini (not because I’m fat). I have visited a gynecologist and endocrinologist and both of them said that I need to lose weight, and I am working on it (I used to weigh 103 kg). They say when I lose weight, my hair isn’t going to be visible or anything, but I doubt it, because my family is pretty hairy – we’re Mediterranean, I guess that’s the reason . I wanted to take birth control pills, because I heard they help with excess hair, but my gyno doesn’t want to prescribe them, until I lose weight. I have a class trip in about two months, and I was wondering could I epilate or wax this hair, and will it cause my hormones to go crazy (crazier, that is). Also, do you think I have PCOS? I know this is really long, but I hope you will find some time to read it and answer my questions! Thank you so much! yyyyy PS I forgot to mention I’m taking metformin 850 mg, 2x/day, even though my blood sugar lvl is okay – 5,0, normal lvl: 4,1 – 5,9. Bye!

Hi, I m 28, female in Australia... I used to weigh 149kg s, I now weigh 89kg after having a gastric sleeve in dec 2011. My question is... What could be causing a irregular heart beat feeling and a flutter in my chest after I have eaten? I hadn t done any heavy exercise before eating so it s all at a slow regular pace. I used to get it before my weight loss surgery, but I m still having them. When it happens I check my pulse also it has a normal heart beat but then it feels like there is a slight pause and a hard thump right after. It happens quite a few times in the space of approximately 30seconds, then when I count my heart beat I count 50 beats in 30 seconds then after a minute I m fine again. This is really scary for me as i have heart problems in my family from my grandma (mothers side). What could be causing this?
Good evening. I have been on a low carb, high protein diet over the past 3 weeks and am enjoying this change of lifestyle. i only eat clean foods, plenty of fruit and veges, lean chicken and fish. Typical of everything the professionals tell you. I have been losing weight also which of course is a bonus. I started taking metamusil over the past 3 days in my morning juice plus drink 1 ltr of fresh water plus a couple of coffees daily. My problem now is, i have not used my bowels for the past 3 days and my flatulance has increased and really smells offensive. What do you suggest? Please help.
The last 3 days I ve passed stools that appear to have white clumps of a stringy like substance intertwined in it. I have changed my diet and eat more protein than usual. I also started working out. The diet change was about a month ago as well as the working out. Any idea what it could be? Is it just something associated with the high protein diet and a reduction in carb intake?
