We provide exceptional care to our patients seeking advice on polycystic ovary disease. The hormonal imbalances due to enlarged ovaries containing several small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) create symptoms that require attention and gynecologic support.
Complete analysis of the symptoms associated with PCOS is undertaken at the clinic including infertility, absent or irregular menstrual cycle, obesity or accumulation of fat usually around the waist. Abnormal facial and body hair, adult acne, and male pattern baldness or hair thinning may also develop due to excessive androgen secretion and is determined and discussed with the concerned individual. Depression, mood swings, breathlessness or insomnia are also seen in women with PCOD/PCOS.
The diagnosis of polycystic ovarian disease is determined by discussing detailed medical history along with a physical and pelvic examination to evaluate the condition of the patient and help identify the underlying cause. Blood tests are conducted to determine the level of various hormones. Additional tests such as a glucose tolerance test and evaluation of blood cholesterol may be needed in some patients. Pelvic ultrasound is performed to evaluate the appearance of the ovaries and the uterine lining.
The treatment of PCOS is based on the symptoms and individual concerns such as infertility, irregular menstrual cycle, acne or obesity.
Associated conditions such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, pregnancy induced high blood pressure, miscarriage or premature delivery, uterine cancer, anxiety or depression are incorporated in the discussions around women health awareness and PCOS.
