PCOS and NBE

@Lotus and @Bustyprincess


Thank you both so much for the information, I really appreciate it! The stress of wanting to increase my boobies + stress of having PCOS is so burdensome sigh, I appreciate the fact I have such knowledgeable ladies to help me out!


Also @Lotus: I was referred to an OBGYN, I asked her for metformin but she was incredibly dismissive and told me that metformin's just for "losing weight" and "getting diarrhea" (not true), and just tried to shove birth control at me. We got into a heated argument LOL so then I just came back from an appt. with an endocrinologist who is going to test my insulin. It's been a nearly 3 month journey trying to find out how to treat my PCOS it's so tiring, I'm sure if this was as popular as erectile dysfunction it would get more attention sigh.

Nws Jaykay!

Honestly I understand your hesitance to taking birth control if you can help it its always best to take bio identical estrogen/progesterone synthetic hormones are terrible for you and yield far less satisfactory results infact they can really wreak havoc on your body thats why I made the switch all those years ago to bio instructed by my endo that its better for you and yields better results than cr***y synthetic pills, gels and patches and found a huge improvement in everything. Try see if you can get yourself some bio hormones see what the endocrinologist says they usually prefer it over straight synthetic birth control. Goodluck doll and again dont be scared to take spiro I had many many years experience with it no side effects great option x

Chronic stress makes PCOS worse, metformin acts an antidepressant (as seen in this study):

Metformin ameliorates stress-induced depression-like behaviors via enhancing the expression of BDNF by activating AMPK/CREB-mediated histone acetylation
Our findings suggest that metformin can produce antidepressant effects, which provides empirical insights into the clinical value of metformin in the prevention and therapy of depression.

When insulin spikes (or high in general) releases higher levels of testosterone,  thus this causes hyperandrogenism (as seen in this attached study).

Metformin use in women with polycystic ovary syndrome

That's too bad she feels that way. You've heard the expression " let's treat the symptom not the cause ". Perhaps it should treat the chronic stress, depression, insulin resistance and hyperandrogenism (which are tied together), and retest hormone levels. The mechanism by which metformin slows the aging process can be in other products: e.g. Resveratrol, Berberine and many others activate AMPK (activated protein kinase) which influences longevity.

I also have PCOS (no blood tests were done, just an ultrasound of my ovaries) and have read several other posts about bio identical hormones but how do you get them? They all seem to be prescription at least here in the US and i don't know that asking for them because i want larger boobs will be enough reason for my doctor to prescribe them as she won't even give me a referral to get my hormones tested because "there is no need."


not to hijack the thread but i think if anyone has any knowledge it will be good for everyone with PCOS reading this thread with a less than helpful doctor like the OP seems to have as well.

Yes they are prescription only the proper bio stuff anyways, you definitely wont get it by asking for it for bigger boobs lol you should be able to get it just by having pcos as an alternative to synthetic birth control, now bio progesterone on the other hand thats completely up to your hormone test results. I am and have been on both bio estrogen and bio progesterone since I can remember but mine is medical reasons not because I wanted bigger boobs lol but pcos is also medical so again ask your endocrinologist, first step contact your gp ask for a referral to an endo for your pcos

I really hate how doctors are dismissive about PCOS. Women with PCOS are more statistically likely to have diabetes, develop gestational diabetes, and ovarian cancer. Also if you suffer from amenorrhea (not from bcp) because of PCOS, it increases your chances of developing endometrial cancer. I haven't had my period since November ever since I stopped bcp and it's freaking me out. I've learned a lot about PCOS from this subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/PCOS/ I urge you to be firm with your doctor about getting at least a testosterone test (since people with PCOS are more likely to have elevated testosterone). Also, I don't know if you ever want to conceive but most women with PCOS are infertile because the cysts affect their ovulation. I feel like the only time doctors are even remotely interested with treating women with PCOS is when they want to conceive, which is ridiculous but if you can't see another doctor for some reason and absolutely need to stick with this one tell them you want to have a child soon. I bet you're probably not overweight/health weight, my doctors are also not taking my symptoms seriously because I'm not overweight and think I'm not high risk for diabetes/insulin resistance. Frustrating aaghgh!!!
