Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
You can live a normal life .Medication is generally prescribed to induce regular periods, thereby reducing the risk of uterine cancer
. For acne and excess hair growth, the diuretic spironolactone
(Aldactazide) can help. And for women who desire pregnancy, Clomiphene (Clomid) can be used to induce ovulation.
Studies have indicated that diabetic medications that are designed to improve the action of the hormone insulin may benefit women with PCOS. Long-term trials of these insulin-sensitizing drugs such as Avandia (rosiglitazone
), Actos (pioglitazone
), and Glucophage
(metformin) for PCOS are underway. The results appear promising. A type of surgery called a "wedge resection" in which a piece of the ovary is removed also helps some women with PCOS.
The cause of PCOS is unknown. However, the ovaries of women with the disease characteristically contain a large number of small cysts. Hence, the name polycystic ovary.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
