Why Women With PCOS Are Prescribed Birth Control?

Drew Baird

Sept 19, 2019

Hormonal birth control (BC) is often prescribed to women with PCOS to treat various symptoms but, how may BC actually help your PCOS?

Oral contraceptive pills are commonly prescribed, either a progestin-only pill (mimics the hormone progesterone) or an estrogen/progestin combination pill.

BC can be very helpful to help reduce symptoms such as irregular periods, heavy periods, cramping, acne, hirsutism (male-pattern hair growth), hair thinning/loss, and it can also lower your risk of developing endometrial cancer (this can happen if you're not having a regular period).

There are 2 main ways in which BC works:

1️⃣ It helps to reduce levels of testosterone in the bloodstream, thus, helping reduce acne, hair growth, hair loss etc
2️⃣ It helps to protect your uterus by creating regular ovulation. Failure to regularly ovulate can increase the buildup of uterine tissue (called endometrial hyperplasia) which may increase the risk of uterine cancer.

⚠️ IMPORTANT NOTES ⚠️
💚 BC isn't regulating your natural cycle, the cycle you experience on BC is due to the synthetic hormones in the pills.
💚 BC doesn't actually fix your hormonal imbalances
💚 BC can create some important vitamin & nutrient deficiencies, specifically vitamin B12, B2, & B6, Folate, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Zinc, and Selenium.
💚 It's very very likely your PCOS symptoms will come back after you stop taking BC

In the end, nobody knows your body better than you, it's totally up to you. If you're taking BC and it's helping you be a better you - fantastic! Always ensure you're working on the underlying root issues of PCOS (hormonal imbalance & inflammation).
