September is PCOS Awareness Month


September is #PCOS Awareness Month. #Polycystic ovary syndrome, or #PCOS, is one of the most common #ovulatory disorders. Approximately 85 percent of ovulatory disorder is usually due to #PCOS. The exact causes of #PCOS are unclear.


#Women may experience:


✍🏽#Menstrual: abnormal #menstruation, #absence of menstruation, #heavy menstruation, #irregular #menstruation, short and light menstruation, or spotting


✍🏽#Weight: obesity, overweight, or weight gain


✍🏽Also common: #infertility, #acne, depression, inappropriate male features, loss of scalp hair, oily skin, or unwanted hair


✍🏽Women with #PCOS create a higher than average level of #androgens. Androgens are normally present in both sexes, but typically are considered male hormones.

✍🏽Elevated androgen levels in #women will affect the development of eggs and interfere with #ovulation. Women with PCOS may not ovulate regularly, or at all.


✍🏽There is no cure for #PCOS, however, a woman can manage her symptoms through diet and/or medication.


✍🏽If #conception does not occur on its own, then #fertility treatment is often helpful. In some cases, the most basic treatment options with timed intercourse or intrauterine insemination (IUI) can help women with PCOS to get pregnant.
