One of the most common questions women with PCOS ask me is what medication to take for PCOS. They also often ask if the pill they are taking is the best one out there for their situation. Well, my answer is always the same: it depends. A woman who is trying to get pregnant is looking for a much different medication then a woman who is looking for something to help her deal with acne or abnormal hair growth. There are a wide variety of options out of there, from pills to over the counter options to alternative treatments. Which one you use depends on what your goal is.
Women with PCOS have complex needs and requirements. In addition to fertility concerns and managing the symptoms, you also need to think about minimizing your risk for potential complications, like diabetes, heart disease and endometrial cancer.
Review Specific Medications for PCOS
It is important to remember that whichever medication you choose, you should speak with your doctor about any concerns that you may have. And of course, if you start something that doesn't work for you, don't hesitate to try a different medication or treatment regimen.
