Great thread!! Sooo, does anyone know how to lower androgens when excess is caused by pcos? I don't know if mine were escessive... but I did had a lot of acne, oily skin and ovarian cysts... I also read that pcos is either caused by 1. insulin resistance 2. stress 3. thyroid problems. I think the second one applies on my, but I will also work on 1, just to make sure. Is there anyone to confirm that these causes are correct? 


I def. think this info is very useful for me, since I had pcos. They say that it almost always goes hand in hand with low progesterone for some reason.. So I know now how to get those up and hopelfully I will ovulate again after stopping the pill.
