Hello. Thank you for posting.

Taking the pill for PCOS is very common. It helps to regulate your menstrual cycle and may even help treat your symptoms like acne and hair loss. There are two types of birth control pills which are based on the types of hormones present: progestin-only pills and pills that are a combination of progestin and estrogen. Ask your doctor about this.
