Managing PCOS

Managing PCOS involves treating the underlying hormonal imbalances and improving the overall health of the patient. The following are some of the most common approaches to managing PCOS:

Lifestyle Changes: Making lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, eating a healthy diet, and engaging in regular exercise, can help regulate hormonal imbalances and improve overall health.

Medications: Your doctor may prescribe medications, such as clomiphene citrate or gonadotropins, to stimulate ovulation and improve fertility. Anti-androgen medications, such as spironolactone, can also be used to reduce androgen levels and improve the symptoms of PCOS.

Hormonal Birth Control: Hormonal birth control, such as the pill or a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD), can be used to regulate menstrual cycles and improve the symptoms of PCOS.
