Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) is a condition that occurs when female hormones are thrown out of balance, creating problems with a woman’s menstrual cycle and making it more difficult to become pregnant.
Dr. Rania Ibrahim finds that most of her patients who are diagnosed with PCOS have a number of small cysts on their ovaries that aren’t necessarily harmful, but can still lead to hormonal imbalances. If not treated, PCOS can lead to more severe health conditions down the road.
While symptoms typically begin in a female’s teenage years, an effective and comprehensive treatment plan can keep the symptoms under control and prevent them from turning into more long-term disorders such as diabetes or heart disease.
Many women with PCOS have symptoms that vary from one mild one at the beginning to a combination of many. Symptoms – which are usually the result of a hormonal imbalance can include:
- Weight gain;
- Thinning hair;
- Irregular periods.
If you’re diagnosed with PCOS, your OB-GYN will typically start your treatment program by prescribing a regular exercise routine and a healthier diet to lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. In some cases, medicines for balancing your hormonal levels may be recommended.
She may also prescribe medicines, such as:
- Birth control pills;
- Metformin, which is a medication used to treat diabetes;
- Fertility medicines (if you’re trying to become pregnant).
It’s also very important stay in touch with your OB-GYN for follow-up to make sure treatment is working properly and make any required adjustments. She may recommend testing for high blood pressure, diabetes and other possible conditions on a regular basis.
