Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a frequently diagnosed condition.
It results in a combination of symptoms that can include: irregular menstruation and anovulation, acne, weight gain, facial hair growth (hirsutism), head hair loss. In some cases though, not all of these symptoms may be present – for example there is a subset of patients with PCOS who are thin, but have irregular menstruation usually in combination with acne. In many cases the root of PCOS is a blood sugar imbalance known as insulin resistance.
The treatment for PCOS is primarily Acupuncture. With correct dietary and exercise & lifestyle interventions, supplements and Reflexology most women with PCOS are able to achieve regular menstruation & ovulation.
