Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts.
What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the result of a hormonal imbalance and women often experience numerous symptoms with the disease. There is often insulin resistance, obesity, unwanted facial hair, acne, painful or lack of menstruation, and infertility. Reversing the symptoms of the condition, including cystic ovaries, includes balancing the hormones, particularly with progesterone. Bioidentical hormone therapy is an excellent treatment option for PCOS. Also, proactive early treatment avoids the inevitable consequences of PCOS including diabetes mellitus, hypertension, breast & ovarian cancer. Needless to say, hormone optimization helps navigate the infertility issues.
