Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), is a common hormonal disorder affecting women of reproductive age. PCOS can lead to various health complications if left untreated, but with the right approach, it can be effectively managed. Our clinic specialises in providing comprehensive care and personalised treatment plans for women dealing with PCOS, empowering them to regain control of their health and well-being.

What is PCOS?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder characterised by the presence of small cysts on the ovaries, irregular menstrual cycles, and elevated levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. While the exact cause of PCOS remains unknown, it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, hormonal, and lifestyle factors.

Common Symptoms of PCOS

PCOS can manifest in various ways, and its symptoms can range from mild to severe. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Irregular Menstrual Cycles: Women with PCOS often experience irregular periods, which may be infrequent or absent altogether.
  • Excessive Hair Growth (Hirsutism): Elevated levels of androgens can lead to increased facial and body hair growth, known as hirsutism.
  • Acne: Hormonal imbalances associated with PCOS can contribute to acne breakouts, particularly along the jawline, chin, and cheeks.
  • Weight Gain: Many women with PCOS struggle with weight management, and obesity is often a contributing factor to the condition.
  • Difficulty Conceiving: PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in women due to irregular ovulation and hormonal imbalances.
  • Skin Changes: Some women with PCOS may experience darkening of the skin, particularly in areas such as the neck, groin, and underarms, known as acanthosis nigricans.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can PCOS affect fertility?

    Yes, PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in women due to irregular ovulation and hormonal imbalances. However, many women with PCOS can still conceive with appropriate treatment and support. Fertility treatments such as ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and in vitro fertilisation (IVF) may be recommended for those struggling to conceive naturally.

  • What lifestyle changes can help manage PCOS?

    Lifestyle modifications are an essential part of PCOS management and may include maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, managing stress, getting enough sleep, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. These lifestyle changes can help improve insulin sensitivity, regulate hormone levels, and reduce symptoms of PCOS.

  • Is PCOS associated with other health risks?

    Yes, women with PCOS have an increased risk of developing other health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and endometrial cancer. Regular medical monitoring and preventive measures, such as maintaining a healthy weight and managing other risk factors, are important for reducing these risks.

  • How can I manage PCOS-related weight gain?

    Managing weight gain associated with PCOS may involve a combination of dietary changes, regular exercise, and possibly medication or other medical interventions. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins, along with regular physical activity, can help promote weight loss and improve overall health in women with PCOS.
