What can I do to minimise PCOS-related hair loss and manage the anxiety?
Sorry, but this question has no answers yet.
Hi,I am sorry to hear about what you are going through. PCOS is a relatively common condition that affects many women. Women who have PCOS do face more challenges with regards to fertility due to the lack of ovulation during their menstrual cycle. However, this definitely does not mean that a woman with PCOS cannot get pregnant! There have been many women out there with PCOS who have successfully gotten pregnant, both either naturally, or via assisted reproductive methods.
I’ll be frank, it’s been some time since I had to manage PCOS for anyone, but as I recall the common issues with it are: Acne Weight gain Hirsutism (hair growth) Difficulty conceiving If your main issue is acne, Dianette is a reasonable option - although it is not recommended as a contraceptive. I would advise you to seek the advice of a gynaecologist if conceiving is an issue or perhaps a dermatologist if acne is the main overriding concern. This is what I would advise if seeing someone for the first time. I would presume that you have had an ultrasound scan done.
