Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder in women leading to infertility.
Women with PCOS can observe irregular menstrual cycles, excessive body hair, thin hair on the scalp, weight problems and skin problems. Moreover, cysts will be formed in the ovaries. The cysts are filled with fluid and contain immature eggs. They produce greater levels of male hormones – androgens. Due to this, women’s may not be able to ovulate, leading to infertility.
Your infertility specialist from Hegde fertility will examine your medical history to determine any other conditions. You need to undergo a physical and pelvic examination to look out for signs and symptoms of PCOS. You should undergo blood tests to measure hormone levels, glucose tests to determine blood sugar levels, and lipid tests to determine the cholesterol levels in your blood.
Your infertility Specialist from Hegde Fertility will use a vaginal ultrasound to create real-time images of reproductive organs.
PCOS treatment may depend on a number of factors and vary from person to person. The following are a few treatment options:
Medications that hamper the production of androgen include:
- Anti-hair-growth medications
- Insulin-sensitizing medications
- Acne treatments
Women with PCOS are at greater risk of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, and premature delivery. If you are suspecting PCOS, consult our Best Gynecologist to diagnose and get proper PCOS treatment and PCOD treatment at earliest to lower your risk of infertility and avoid future complications.
