      I don’t have PCOS but I did have PMDD, so I took continuous hormonal BC that made it so I didn’t ever have a period. I’ve heard that can be an effective treatment for PCOS as well. It does have estrogen in it, but if it has any feminizing effects, they’re very minimal.

      It's definitely something to talk to a healthcare professional / specialist about. They will know more about the regulation, control, and monitoring that you'll need whilst coming off T - just to make sure you're safe. They can keep an eye on your PCOS at the same time. 💕

One option mentioned is taking Metformin, which helps control PCOS by regulating sugar rather than raising estrogen levels. Another suggestion is to consult with a trans-friendly endocrinologist who can manage both the trans hormones side and the PCOS hormones side. It's also recommended to discuss your gender identity with your doctor and express your concerns about hormone treatments. Some have found success with HRT as a treatment for PCOS, as it can lower raised androgen levels. Other non-hormonal methods such as weight management, diet, and exercise were also suggested.
