I was diagnosed with pcos in 2007. My mother had brest cancer, she passsed in 2002. she did not have pcos. I get it from my father's side of the family. My question is this, since many of the symptons of Pcos are treated with either provera or another bcp, Has anyone heard from their dr, the safety of using this meds, if you have a family history of breast cancer? I don't take bcp out of fear of increasing my chance of breast cancer. But do to the fact that I don't have a period on my own, My gyno, suggests taking provera every three months to induce one. I am scared to death of doing this. I would appreciate any information anyone has.......... Thank you ladies.
