The treatment procedure for PCOD/PCOS varies from woman to woman, however, there are some factors that can influence the treatment procedure like- age and severity of the condition.
Birth control pills– These pills contain both estrogen and progestin hence they help in decreasing androgen production and regulating estrogen. Regulating your hormones can help in reducing the risk of endometrial cancer and correct irregular bleeding, excess hair growth, and acne.
Progestin therapy– Doctors may administer a single course of progestin before ovulation induction. Progestin leads to thickening in the lining of the uterus. Without continuous progestin administration to maintain the thickening, the uterine lining is sloughed off, and bleeding begins. It is usually performed to simulate the bleeding that occurs at the beginning of the monthly menstrual cycle.
