Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, or PCOS as it’s more commonly referred to, affects up to 1 out of every 10 women of childbearing age in the U.S. (Women’s Health). Our ReVital care team connects with many women who visit our clinic and share about their own experience living with PCOS. The pain, frustration, and health risks associated with PCOS can have a heart-breaking impact on otherwise perfectly healthy lives. The same question we hear from these women is, “Is there any treatment that works with PCOS?”
We are happy to say that yes, there is hope for treating PCOS. Hormone imbalance is often the root cause of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. PCOS is merely a symptom and not a disease itself. Rebalancing your hormones safely and under the careful supervision of a board-certified physician is proven to reverse the effect of PCOS on a woman’s body. Approximately 50% of women who have PCOS experience benign growths called “cysts” on their ovaries. There are other symptoms of PCOS that can manifest, which we have covered in a previous article.
Starting treatment for PCOS begins with a much larger conversation about how your hormones are influencing other areas of your everyday life. Everything from your social life, work responsibilities, stress level, intimacy, mental clarity, and so much more can be directly altered by our hormone levels. Our ReVital care team introduces our treatment approach by getting to know you. We want to hear your story, learn about your background, family history, diet, everyday routine, stress, work, and family life to see how your hormone levels may be responding as a direct result of your environment.
We can then conduct a series of basic tests to see what your body tells us about how your PCOS is representative of your hormone levels. Once we learn more about what you and your body tell us, then we can have a better conversation about how to personalize your treatment plan for what your body needs. This is just part of our customized approach to treating every woman for who she is as a person.
