Birth control is the easiest way to manage the hormone imbalances and subsequent symptoms of PCOS. I am not a huge fan of synthetic hormones and after 15 years on the pill, am managing my PCOS perfectly through a low-glycemic diet, regular acupuncture and herbs. BUT, until I made the switch birth control pills helped me enormously.

Another great answer Kerry. Birth control can offer a way to balance hormones for some, but its great to try and manage PCOS (and myriad other hormone conditions) through other, less synthetic, means.

I have been trying to get pregnant with the second for almost two long years and still have had no luck i do not get my period very often therefore never know when im ovulating. i have tried birth control to get me back on my circles and all it did was give me what i call a fake period. I got my period while on birth control because the medicine told my body to but when i stopped taking it the periods stopped again as they did before i took the birth control so in the the end i tried but failed and wasted 10 on a co-pay and 5 on the pill it self hope this helps if not i got it out of system.
