The fllowing is a summary of the current allopathic picture of PCOS.
The impact of obesity on reproduction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

The polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common causes of infertility due to anovulation in women. The clinical features of PCOS are heterogeneous and may change throughout the lifespan, starting from adolescence to postmenopausal age. This is largely dependent on the influence of obesity and metabolic alterations, including an insulin-resistant state and the metabolic syndrome, which consistently affect most women with PCOS. Obesity does in fact have profound effects on both the pathophysiology and the clinical manifestation of PCOS, by different mechanisms leading to androgen excess and increased free androgen availability and to alterations of granulosa cell function and follicle development. Notably, simple obesity per se represents a functional hyperandrogenic state. These mechanisms involve early hormonal and metabolic factors during intrauterine life, leptin, insulin and the insulin growth factor system and, potentially, the endocannabinoid system. Compared with normal weight women with PCOS, those with obesity are characterised by a worsened hyperandrogenic and metabolic state, poorer menses and ovulatory performance and, ultimately, poorer pregnancy rates. The importance of obesity in the pathogenesis of PCOS is emphasised by the efficacy of lifestyle intervention and weight loss, not only on metabolic alterations but also on hyperandrogenism, ovulation and fertility. The increasing prevalence of obesity among adolescent and young women with PCOS may partly depend on the increasing worldwide epidemic of obesity, although this hypothesis should be supported by long-term prospective epidemiological trials. This may have great relevance in preventive medicine and offer the opportunity to expand our still limited knowledge of the genetic and environmental background favouring the development of the PCOS.
As can be seen they do not have much to offer .
BUT they pin it down to kidney and insulin problems , plus obesity.
I am wondering how you arrived at Sepia as a remedy.
The Sulfurs are the best cystic remedies.
walkin last decadeI was prescribed Sepia rightly I feel.
Because I have other symptoms of Sepia not just pcos.
I was diagnosied as having PCOS recently. And after making extensive research I understand it more.Allopathic point of view I do understand. There are many rememdies for pcos in homeopathy but as I want to conceive and get rid of the symptoms Sepia is appropriate.Metformin has helped me to loose weight and it may help in regularising my cycles too but alternate medicine could help me too I feel.
I want the dosage that is either 2 or 3 or 4 pellets of Sepia 200C.
According to Encyclopedia of Alternate Medicines the following is written about Sepia
Printable VersionDownload PDFCite this Page
Sepia (Sepia officinalis) is the homeopathic name for 'cuttlefish' or squid remedy. The remedy is made from the contents of the 'ink bag' of the cuttlefish.
Sepia's primary role in the world of alternative medicine is as one of the homeopathic remedies. In fact, it is classed as one of the 20 polychrests, which are those homeopathic remedies having the widest range of application, and which are also recommended for inclusion in the set of basic remedies that should be kept on hand in every household.
Homeopathy is a method of treatment devised by Samuel Hahnemann that works on the principle of treating 'like with like,' (similia similibus curentur). Hahnemann devised a system of more than 100 remedies formulated to be administered in minute doses; effective, yet safe and without side effects. He discovered the principle of minute doses by gradually reducing medicines until he arrived at an effective dose with no side effects.
Hahnemann also discovered the method of 'potentizing' his remedies by sucussing (similar to shaking) them vigorously. Until now, no one has been able to discover exactly why potentizing works. Even in his lifetime, Hahnemann's new methods were proven to be effective and safe.
According to homeopathy, the chief centers of action of the sepia remedy are those of the mind, mental processes and reproductive organs, upon which it is considered to act deeply over extended periods of time and to which it is more appropriate as a long-term remedy rather than a 'quick fix.'
Sepia is considered one of the chief remedies for the treatment of female ailments. It is particularly indicated for the following type of person: Irritable, tall thin girls who have pale sallow skin. These girls may often be ill, in fact never really well, and tired most of the time. They may often be at odds with others because of their attitudes. They feel better after exercise and improve with company, and when sociably occupied forget their ailments. These girls often suffer from heavy prolonged periods with intense cramping and general discomfort. Backache and constipation may also be experienced.
The ink of the cuttlefish was previously known as Indian ink, and was widely used by artists in the past because of its dark reddish brown pigment.
Uses for sepia
women's problems related to menstruation
costipation, particularly as a result of pregnancy or menstruation
dandruff, particularly when associated with 'pigmented patches'
delayed menstruation, particularly if yeast infections are a problem
problems associated with menopause, especially menstrual flooding and feeling that the womb will 'drop out'
amenorrhea when accompanied by depression and general aches and pains
menorrhagia when accompanied by dragging pain in the lower abdomen, backache, depression, and irritability
miscarriage when accompanied by dragging pains and irritability
nonmalignant swellings and tumors of the uterus (such as fibroids), again, when accompanied by the dragging pains and emotional make-up outlined above
bedwetting in children when it occurs soon after falling asleep, and involuntary passing of urine on sneezing or coughing

thrush or candidiasis

Homeopathic remedies come in several strengths, or potencies. Common examples include 6x, 12c, and 30c. For minor ailments, the 6x potency may be taken twice daily for seven to ten days. For acute conditions, either the 6x remedy may be taken every two to four hours for three to five days, or the 30 remedy may be taken once every four hours three times only.
For extremely serious conditions, such as severe pain or accidents, burns or hemorrhage, the patient can take either the 6x remedy once every fifteen minutes for six to eight doses or until the condition improves, or the 30c potency once every 15 to 30 minutes for four to six doses or until the condition improves.
Homeopathic remedies work best if the correct remedy is picked. The best person to do this is an experienced homeopathic physician. Some naturopathic physicians are among the finest homeopathic practitioners.
Homeopathic remedies should be dissolved under the tongue. Handling of the remedies should be kept to a minimum as they react to handling and may be spoiled. They should also be kept away from heat and light, and should not be swallowed with a drink. After taking a homeopathic dose, patients should not eat, drink, smoke, or clean their teeth for about fifteen minutes if possible.
Homeopathic remedies are not known to produce side effects, as they have no effect except when matched with particular symptoms. Individual aggravations may occur.
Homeopathic remedies can be taken in conjunction with allopathic medicine. Sepia should not be taken at the same time as bryonia or lachesis, as they may react adversely to each other. Coffee, peppermints, and some essential oils may counteract the effects of homeopathic remedies. Dental treatment may also affect the action of remedies.
