Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

About Your Care and Condition

A polycystic ovarian syndrome diagnosis may show up after investigating unwanted symptoms like facial hair growth, irregular periods or acne. Our caring gynecologists and endocrinologists know how discouraging this can be. The upside is that we also know how to find the perfect combination of new medicines and procedures to minimize symptoms and maximize your confidence.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome causes an imbalance in your estrogen and progesterone levels. This can affect your menstrual cycle, fertility, cardiac function and appearance. Up to five million women have this condition. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help control symptoms. Birth control pills or hormone replacement may also be prescribed. For advanced polycystic ovarian syndrome, you may need surgery.
