I am 32 years old and have PCOS. I have a lot of hair on my face and have recently got separated as I could not conceive. This thing has taken a great toll on me. Please prescribe some medicine and help me.

Your best medicine is your food. There is no pharmaceutical medication that will make PCOS, hirsutism and infertility go away -- and stay away. Moreover, all the medications have side effects that are undesirable.

Perhaps the most important thing you can do is eat more vegetables. Go to your local market and get fresh vegetables. Have at least five servings every day.

Secondly, are you eating any white rice? Avoid all white rice. If you must have rice, make sure it is brown rice. In general, reduce the amount of rice and wheat that you consume. In fact, you could eliminate rice and wheat completely. That could make a difference.

Third, do you live near the coast? If so, have fish 3-5 times a week. It is an excellent protein and has important fats that will help to normalize your hormones.

Fourth, have some nuts and seeds. They contain nutrients that will help you.

Fifth, some fresh fruit is OK. But fresh only. Not dried or canned.

Sixth, you must increase your exercise. Even if your culture discourages exercise for women, find some way to get more exercise. This is vitally necessary in order to rebalance your hormones. At the very least, take long, brisk walks.

Seventh, reduce consumption of any saturated fats, such as butter and fatty meats. Too much saturated fat increases production of male hormones, which contributes to unwanted hair growth and infertility.

Diet and exercise are the place to start, according to the medical research.
