I am a 21 years old female. I recently found out that I have PCOS. I am under medication recommended by my Gynecologist. I am taking glycomet- 500mg and normal twice a day since a month. I am also taking Ayurvedic Medicines. My periods were supposed to start on 4th of Jan but the irregularity still continues and my periods are late. I am bloating and my weight keeps increasing every week because of PCOS and irregular periods with acne all over my face, shoulders and back. The acne is growing and becoming big with white fluid in it. What should I do?

You have to take on major lifestyle changes. Curtail diet drastically. Reduce carbohydrates. Stop fats. Increase vegetable and fruits. Undertake 30-60 minutes of iosmetric exercise- jogging, cycling, swimming. Start a racquet game like badminton or tennis/table tennis. Another good activity which reduces stress is yoga. Avoid stress at work place, with colleagues and family members. Once you are able to achieve 5-10% weight loss, all you have to do is maintain. From 78 kg, try to come down to 72 kg and many of your problems will reduce. Medications will not be required after that.
