Pcos Treatment

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts. The exact cause of PCOS is not clear. Many women with PCOS have insulin resistance. Symptoms of PCOS often start around the time of the first menstrual period. Sometimes symptoms develop later after you have had periods for a while. Medications include progestin therapy, combination pills, metformin, Eflornithine (Vaniqa), Spironolactone (Aldactone) and others.

About Pcos Treatment

Many women with PCOS have insulin resistance. This means the body can't use insulin well. Insulin levels build up in the body and may cause higher androgen levels. There's no single test to specifically diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Your healthcare provider is likely to start with a discussion of your symptoms, medications, and any other medical conditions.
Treatment for PCOS depends on several factors. These may include your age, how severe your symptoms are, and your overall health. The type of treatment may also depend on whether you want to become pregnant in the future. PCOS is diagnosed with techniques such as ultrasound which is used to look at the size of the ovaries and see if they have cysts and blood tests to look for high levels of androgens and other hormones.

Procedure of Pcos Treatment

PCOS treatment primarily focuses on managing the things that are concerning the patient. Specific treatment might involve lifestyle changes or medication. Some of the common treatments include: 


1. Medications can help the ovaries to release eggs normally. These medications also have certain risks. They can increase the chance of multiple births (twins or more).
2. Taking progestin for 10 to 14 days every 1 to 2 months can regulate your periods and protect against endometrial cancer. This progestin therapy doesn't improve androgen levels and won't prevent pregnancy.
3. A healthy diet and more physical activity can help you lose weight and minimize your symptoms. They can also help your body use insulin more efficiently, lower blood glucose levels, and may help you ovulate.
4. Pills that contain both estrogen and progestin lessen androgen production and regulate estrogen. Regulating your hormones can reduce your risk of endometrial cancer and correct irregular bleeding, excess hair growth, and acne.
5.Diabetes medication is often used to lower insulin resistance in PCOS. Additionally, it may also help reduce androgen levels, slow hair growth, and assist you ovulate more regularly.
