medication to control PCOS. Imaging...
Currently looking for an oral birth control or other medication to control PCOS. Imaging showed cysts on the ovaries, there is hirutism and only a few periods per year. In 2015, came off of a ten year span of birth control to cleanse body for pregnancy. We're currently not financially able to support a little one so birth control or a different medication is fine. I have hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, pituitary tumor non secreting 7mm, gerd, and depression. I would prefer a more natural, kinder option. Thank you in advance.

Any brand of oral contraceptive is effective in treating pco. You can take the pill continuously so that you do not get a period every month. Every 3 months is fine. You should not use a tricyclic pill but should use one that has a constant dose. The brand or type is not important. There is no kinder more natural option. All birth control is a synthetic hormone. But its far preferable to the issues that arise from pco, which are not natural either.

Thank you, ***** ***** this be preferred over a traditional medication such at Metformin?
Metformin is also a good treatment but wont treat hirsutism as well. Its not a traditional treatment for pco either but it is an alternative. Its also not birth control

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
