PCOS treatment

Although there's no proven way to cure polycystic ovary syndrome, you can improve symptoms by eating healthy foods and exercising regularly.

Losing five to ten percent of your body weight can help prevent irregular menstrual periods and improve PCOS symptoms. Maintaining a regular weight can also help:

  • Lower insulin levels and blood pressure

  • Reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes

  • Improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels

If you're experiencing PCOS symptoms, talk to one of our doctors about healthy lifestyle changes and medication options to improve your symptoms.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) medication

What is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition caused by the female body producing an excess of male hormones known as androgens. This hormonal imbalance can cause irregular menstrual periods and make it difficult for women with PCOS to get pregnant.

PCOS can lead to an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.

The first signs of polycystic ovary syndrome typically include:

  • Irregular periods or missed periods

  • Difficulty getting pregnant

  • Excessive facial or body hair growth

  • Weight gain

  • Thinning hair or hair loss from the head

  • Oily skin or acne

It is important to note that not all women with PCOS will experience the same symptoms.

You should talk to our doctors if:

  • You've had irregular or missed periods and are not pregnant.

  • You have symptoms of diabetes, such as excess thirst or hunger.

  • You are experiencing any other PCOS symptoms.
