  3. Why cyclic progesterone may revolutionize PCOS treatment

Short Summary:   Ten percent of all women in the population have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) that is characterized by not ovulating normally and having too high men’s type hormones (anovulatory androgen excess).  PCOS causes far apart periods, pimples and facial hair plus risks for weight gain, diabetes, endometrial cancer and infertility as well as anxiety and depression  Birth control pills are now the main treatment; The Pill  but benefits for acne and cycles don’t last when they are stopped; nor does it  improve weight or fertility. New evidence shows women’s other ovary hormone, progesterone, can not only give regular cycles but may lead to recovery of all PCOS problems
