I was on lo/ovral for a while, switched to Yasmine and got sweats with it and other problems. I recently was put on ortho-tri-cyclen lo and have had sweating and high blood sugar. If you have PCOS what birth control works for you?

I dont have pcos but I have experienced the same side effects without it, right now I am on the shot and am pretty much going through menopause, I am really apt to get side effects. I really have looked at every type of birth control and they all have side effects it just matters what kind are worse then others, sorry...... another thing you could look at that someone else told me is kavira I havent had the time to look at it but good luck to you.

I have PCOS and take ortho-tri-cyclen. However, with your blood sugar being high you may need ask your doctor about taking some form of insulin. They have oral insulin taken by mouth and some even come in an inhaler form. Ask about glucophage. Glucophage regulates your bodies glucose levels. With PCOS. Your ovaries are insulin resistant which keeps them from ovulating correctly. PCOS can also lead to diabetes so make sure they are watching your blood sugars on a regular basis. The sweating can be from you blood sugars rising and falling rapidly. Be careful to not watch that.

I take seasonique, but I had surgery to relieve the PCOS. I also have ovarian cysts and endometriosis.
