    Please, I am asking input from anuone on here that has PCOS. How do you control this w/o taking BCP. My levels are increasing - my hair is very very thin now and I am geeting stray hairs all over my face. I am on 75mg Spironolactone. I am forming cysts in my ovaries (I have 6 follices since last ultra sound) Is BCP the only way? I am thin, I don't know if I have IR, please resond.....someone.........

    Hi Joan,

    I know next to nothing about PCOs. There is a support forum for it called soulcysters. Maybe they could also help with your questions. Here is a link to their site:

    Who is prescribing you the Spironolactone? Do they plan on increasing the dosage? I believe the recommended dosage 200 mg. This should lower your androgens and prevent your hair loss (and unwanted growth) from progressing any further. The only way to prevent cysts themselves however is to take the BCP...

    The thing is, though, the BCP pill is what triggered my problem to begin with, and if her hair is already very thin, I'd be concerned about going through a massive TE shed.
