What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a condition that occurs due to hormone level imbalance in women, which affects the ovaries. This condition leads to the formation of the fluid inside (cyst) immature eggs in the ovary.
When the expected levels of male hormones in women increases, it affects the menstrual cycle that brings about ovulation in women. If there is no ovulation, no egg is made available for fertilization (by sperm cells). Hence, making it harder to get pregnant-infertility.
Diagnosis for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
There are numerous examinations used to diagnose PCOS. These include physical examinations, blood tests (to determine hormone levels), and ultrasounds to check the ovaries.
Some of the symptoms in PCOS include; Acne, weight gain, irregular menstrual period, and hirsutism (excessive hair growth).
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Treatment
The treatment of PCOS depends on the severity. One treatment can be used at a time or combined with the other. PCOS treatment includes the following:
Lifestyle Modification: Lifestyle modification is the first line of treatment for PCOS. This treatment involves incorporating exercise, weight loss, and diet changes in the lifestyle of PCOS patients. These three rudiments aid the shedding off of excess weight and promote good health. A good body mass index significantly improves the symptoms of PCOS.
Medication: Birth control pills, Metformin, and clomiphene are some of the drugs used to improve the symptoms of PCOS. They help to normalize the menstrual cycle and ovulation. Furthermore, they also improve weight loss when combined with lifestyle modification.
Surgery: In some cases, when lifestyle changes and medication doesn’t work, surgery becomes the last line of treatment. Our specialists will handle the surgery and you can anticipate a successful outcome.
