What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance disorder that affects women of childbearing age. The condition is likely related to genetics as abnormally high levels of androgens (male hormones) are produced in the body. In some cases, women with PCOS have small cysts (pockets filled with fluid) on their ovaries. It is important to seek medical attention if you have common signs of PCOS, such as irregular menstrual cycles, fertility problems, or persistent weight gain. At Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics, board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Janice Alexander can provide a diagnosis and customized solutions to manage PCOS. Call our office in Cedarburg, WI to schedule an appointment, and let our compassionate team help you improve your health and well-being.

How Is PCOS Treated?

The most common signs of PCOS include skipped or prolonged periods, infertility, weight gain, acne, hair loss, and the growth of unwanted facial and body hair. At Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics, Dr. Alexander will perform a pelvic exam to check for abnormalities. A blood test and an ultrasound may also be performed. Based on your needs and concerns, your treatment for PCOS may involve birth control pills, progestin therapy, or other medications to regulate your hormones. In addition, Dr. Alexander can offer weight loss plans, recommendations for lifestyle changes, and advice on fertility and conception. While some women with PCOS have ovarian cysts, others do not. Cysts can disappear on their own, but in more severe instances, the cysts will need to be surgically removed. Dr. Alexander can provide you with a personalized plan of action to remove your cysts.
