My wife's period cycle starts from 21st of the month. Last month she had period on 21st Oct, 2016.we are on tour now and she wants to delay the period cycle by 3-4 days as we will return to home on 25th Nov, 2016.so we purchased regestrone 5 mg tablet for this. But as we have tried for baby this month, so not sure whether she will conceive, but if she conceive then does the medicine regestrone 5 mg impact her pregnancy? So if it impacts and we need to avoid the medicine, how will we delay period cycle by 4-5 days. Please advise as we are really worried for the same.
Symptoms, causes, and medications for PCOS
Hi! I’m Dr. Ravi from Kukatpally, Endocrinologist. Today we are going to learn about PCOS, it is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. In Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a woman will have irregular periods and acne, unwanted facial hair and also hair loss from the head. There will be difficulty in conceiving. And usually there will be overweight and obesity with this Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. So what causes this Polycystic Ovarian syndrome? In PCOS patients, their ovaries won’t work normally. Every month one follicle will enlarge and mature and it will rupture releasing an egg. In PCOS multiple follicles will enlarge and they won’t rupture. And over a period of time, these follicles will accumulate. Now if you do a scan, a number of follicles will be there.
So what are the symptoms of this Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome? It contains as I told you, irregular menstruation periods, acne and androgen features just like facial hair and hair fall and the third one is irregular menses in the background of insulin resistance. These PCOS patients will have health related issues-hormonal and other problems. So they need to be evaluated, if they have high cholesterol, high blood sugar, high BP, other things, they need to get monitored and get treated accordingly.
Now we learn about what lab tests they need, okay, they need hormonal tests, blood sugars, cholesterol and they need to undergo some ultrasound scans, abdomen with the ovaries. Okay, these are the lab tests they need, and what is the treatment for PCOS? First thing is weight loss, if you lose weight around 5%, around 4-5 kgs, 50% of people, this Polycystic Syndrome will resolve. So, weight loss with diet and exercise is an important thing along with lifestyle modification and weight loss, some medications like birth control pills, they won’t acute the PCOS but the thing is they will ameliorate all problems with the…..so if you use birth control pills, your cycles will be regular, your unwanted facial hair will reduce. So these birth control pills are good, and they will protect the uterus from cancer if you use those birth control pills. Another drug is Anti-Androgens so they will block hormonal action
Side effects of these Anti-androgens like aldosterone, the thing is you will need to monitor the lever enzymes and also there is weight gain. That means water retention in the body. Okay, these are the two side effects for anti-androgens. Another drug we use is Metformin. Usually, we use that for controlling high blood sugar. But the thing is those who use this Metformin their insulin resistance will get controlled reduced and leading to normal…..cycles and other things in PCOS patients. So this can also be useful. Another one is individualizing problems; the thing is if an elderly person will come with this PCOS if their concern is they don’t want excess facial hair, so the best thing is anti-androgens. If a married person comes with PCOS, their main problem is to get a reproduction, to conceive, to get children. For them, we will use ovulation-inducing drugs. And if another married woman comes with PCOS and her complaint is hair fall and unwanted facial hair, we use another drug or local ointment to reduce facial hair or laser, these things. So, individualizing treatment depending on their problem is an issue in the treatment of PCOS.
Now, lastly, can a PCOS woman lead a normal life? Yes. The thing is whatever problem they are having there are good medicines and everything. They can lead a normal life with regular medication and regular doctor visit. So, don’t worry about PCOS.

1. Metabolic syndrome — a combination of increased blood pressure, elevated blood glucose and triglycerides — has a greater impact on women than men.
2. Mental stress and depression affect women's hearts more than they do men's.
3. Smoking is much worse for women than men.
4. A low level of estrogen before menopause is a significant risk factor for developing microvascular disease.
5. Though women will often have some chest pain or discomfort, it may not be the most prominent symptom. Diffuse plaques build-up and diseased smaller arteries are two reasons why symptoms can be different in women.
6. In addition to chest pain, pressure or discomfort, signs and symptoms of heart attack in women include: Neck, shoulder, upper back or abdominal discomfort, Shortness of breath, Nausea or vomiting, Sweating, Light-headedness or dizziness and unusual fatigue.
7. Endothelial dysfunction is more common in women. In this the lining of the artery does not expand (dilate) properly to boost blood flow during activity, which increases the risk of coronary artery spasm and sudden death.
8. WISE study results suggest that the commonly used treatments for coronary artery disease — angioplasty and stenting — are not the best option for women with more diffuse plaques.
9. Typical tests for coronary artery disease — angiogram, treadmill testing and others — are not reliable in women.
10. The WISE study showed that in some women, plaques accumulate as an evenly spread layer along artery walls, which is not visible using traditional testing methods.
