Default Polycystic ovary syndrome

Im just searching for anyone that has experience with this and aas use. My lady has this syndrome and im fairly sure that her ex husband was making her take aas but we have never discussed the dosing he was giving her and it would have been at least five years ago when this was going on. It was not a good relationship obviously. The main issue now is that her hair is falling out at a fast rate and she may be bald in a few months if it continues. She has started taking a lot of supplements to help with hair loss and scalp blood flow. He current job is causing much stress as well as this situation. The combination of POS and ass in the past I fear may have accelerated negative symptoms that all women do not wish to have happen.

She has most of the symptoms of this syndrome and they closely resemble what aas use does to women. Facial hair growth, clit enlargement, hair falling out, muscular build, trouble keeping weight off, etc. She cannot get an endo appointment until nov/dec. and is obviously very worried. She has not seen an endo for a few years but probably should have.

Any info, direction, literature, thoughts?

I would suggest getting full female hormone panel for her if your state allows it w/o script. Her body could be producing excess amounts of hormones from tumors from possible past aas use. If she has cysts on her ovaries, they are like ticking time bombs and could rupture at any moment which can cause internal bleeding. Wouldn't wish that upon anybody as I have gone through that traumatic experience myself except mine was liver related and I eventually had to get a transplant. Good luck and I wish you and your girl the best.

Hey NAS,
Does she see a GYNO regularly? They will check for cysts. She should see a GYN at least every 1-2 years due to increased risk of uterine cancer.

The other major concern is insulin resistance…. The endo will check …. sounds like she has androgenic alopecia...

Inositol has been used for PCOS and there are quite a few clinical studies demonstrating efficacy.. (88)…

Here is a great place to get more info on inositol for treatment…

this site is helpful if you like to look at the empirical evidence… lists summaries of all the research studies…

Here are some other sites that may be useful…

she needs medical follow up. needs a good endo and may need assistance in lowering testosterone. sprironolactone and metformin can be of assistance for PCOS sxs but this all needs to be done by her physician. yes, she will need a full hormone panel. its important that she eat well, stay thin, take supplements... but really she needs a good endo and ob/gyn.

I hope she got into a good endocrinologist and OB/GYN.

She is seeing an endo tomorrow. Her general practitioner tested her testosterone and it was high just out of normal range. Think it was 68.
