PCOS, or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the presence of multiple cysts on the ovaries, irregular periods, and elevated levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. PCOS can also cause acne, hair growth, weight gain, and fertility issues.
What are some common symptoms of PCOS?
Common symptoms of PCOS include irregular periods, acne, hair growth on the face and body, weight gain, and fertility issues. However, every woman's experience with PCOS is unique, so it is important to discuss your individual symptoms with your OBGYN to determine the best course of treatment.
How is PCOS diagnosed?
PCOS is typically diagnosed based on a combination of symptoms, physical exam findings, and laboratory tests. These may include blood tests to measure hormone levels, an ultrasound to look for cysts on the ovaries, and a review of your medical history and symptoms.
What are the treatment options for PCOS?
Treatment options for PCOS may include hormonal birth control to regulate menstrual cycles, medications to lower androgen levels, lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, and fertility treatments if needed. Our team will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your individual needs and goals.
Can PCOS affect fertility?
Yes, PCOS can cause fertility issues due to irregular ovulation or the absence of ovulation. However, with proper treatment and management of symptoms, many women with PCOS are able to conceive and have successful pregnancies. Our team can provide guidance and support throughout your fertility journey.
