Why do you need PCOS treatment ?

PCOS not only causes Female infertility, it is also linked with other health problems, including:

  • Diabetes. More than half of women with PCOS will have diabetes or pre-diabetes (glucose intolerance) before the age of 40.

  • Greater risk of High blood pressure.

  • Unhealthy cholesterol. Women with PCOS often have higher levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol and low levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.

  • Sleep apnea. This is when momentary and repeated stops in breathing interrupt sleep. Many women with PCOS are overweight or obese, which can cause sleep apnea. 

  • Depression and anxiety. 

  • Endometrial cancer. 

Can PCOS be cured ?

There is no cure for PCOS, but you can manage the symptoms of PCOS. At our Clinic, we make an individualised treatment plan based on your symptoms, your plans for children, and your risk for long-term health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. Many women need a combination of treatments, including:

  • Steps you can take at home to help relieve your symptoms

  • Medicines

What are the Steps to be taken at home ?

  • Loose weight. Losing weight may help to lower your blood glucose levels, improve the way your body uses insulin, and help your hormones reach normal levels. Even a 10% loss in body weight can help make your menstrual cycle more regular and improve your chances of getting pregnant.

  • Remove excess hair. 

  • Slow your hair growth. A prescription skin treatment can help slow down the growth rate of new hair in unwanted places.

What are the treatment options for PCOS if you want to get pregnant?

You have several options to help your chances of getting pregnant if you have PCOS:

  • Losing weight and regular physical activity can help make your menstrual cycle more regular and improve your fertility.

  • Medicine. 

  • In vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF may be an option if medicine does not work. In IVF, your egg is fertilized with your partner's sperm in a laboratory and then placed in your uterus to implant and develop. 

  • Surgery. Surgery is also an option, usually only if the other options do not work. The outer shell (called the cortex) of ovaries is thickened in women with PCOS and thought to play a role in preventing spontaneous ovulation. Ovarian drilling is a surgery in which the doctor makes a few holes in the surface of your ovary. Surgery usually restores ovulation, but only for six to eight months.
