Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is characterized by an overproduction of male hormones (androgens), which can cause a range of symptoms including irregular periods, acne, excessive hair growth, and weight gain. At American Wellness and Rehab Clinic, we understand that PCOS can be a challenging condition to live with, and our team of experienced healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing effective PCOS treatment options to help women manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
What is P.C.O.S. (Polycystic ovary syndrome)?
PCOS is a complex condition that can present with a range of symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose. However, there are several key features that are commonly associated with PCOS. These include irregular or absent periods, excess androgen production, and the presence of small cysts on the ovaries. In addition to the physical symptoms, many women with PCOS also experience emotional and psychological challenges, such as anxiety and depression.
PCOS Treatment Options
At American Wellness and Rehab Clinic, we offer a range of effective PCOS treatment options tailored to each patient's unique needs and goals. These include:
- Hormonal Therapy: Hormonal therapy is often used to regulate menstrual cycles, reduce excess hair growth, and improve acne. This type of treatment may involve the use of oral contraceptives, anti-androgen medications, or other hormonal medications.
- Lifestyle Changes: Lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, and weight management can help to manage the symptoms of PCOS. Our team of healthcare professionals can provide guidance and support to help patients make sustainable lifestyle changes.
- Fertility Treatment: Many women with PCOS struggle with fertility issues. We offer a range of fertility treatments, including medications, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and in vitro fertilization (IVF), to help women achieve their dream of starting a family.
