"If women aren’t ovulating, isn’t it counterintuitive to put them on a pill that reinforces non-ovulation? When they think they’re on their menstrual cycle, it’s not a period but a chemically induced bleed by synthetic hormones.”
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is the nastiest of all hormonal imbalances. Yet in the absence of ovary cysts, doctors would rule it out - even if some of its glaring symptoms like irregular periods, infertility, unwanted weight gain, acne, and chest and facial hair have already appeared.
And with the meteoric rise of crazy hormonal issues happening as of latter years, it’s easy for women to feel alienated and misunderstood. Pills have been a normal prescription to manage PCOS, but did you know that it disrupts your monthly ovulation cycle and what you’re only experiencing could be ‘fake bleed’?
