But the Pill is the only thing that works for my PCOS. I take the combined one for therapeutic reasons. If I did not take it, I would likely have developed Type II diabetes or cardiovascular disease by now. Not to mention PCOS increases your risk of uterine and ovarian cancer. I had a colleague from another department die of ovarian cancer at age 42. I had a friend with PCOS die of uterine cancer at age 51. I know multiple people who have survived breast cancer for many years- including one who had metastatic breast cancer.
