What Causes PCOS?

PCOS is a multifactorial disorder characterized by hormonal imbalances, insulin resistance, and ovarian dysfunction. While the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, factors such as genetics, insulin resistance, and inflammation can influence its development. 

Women with PCOS often have high levels of androgens (male hormones) and irregular menstrual cycles. These factors can lead to different symptoms, including acne, hirsutism (excess hair growth), and infertility.

How Can an Endocrinologist Help Patients With PCOS? 

Endocrinologists specialize in diagnosing and managing hormonal disorders like PCOS. They can perform a comprehensive evaluation, including a review of medical history, physical examination, and laboratory tests to confirm a diagnosis of PCOS. 

Once they identify your symptoms, endocrinologists can prescribe medications to regulate menstrual cycles, reduce androgen levels, and alleviate symptoms such as acne. 

Hormonal therapies such as birth control pills, anti-androgen medications, and insulin-sensitizing agents are commonly used to manage PCOS symptoms.

For women with PCOS struggling with infertility, endocrinologists can provide guidance and treatment options to improve fertility outcomes. This may include ovulation induction medications, lifestyle modifications, and assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Moreover, endocrinologists can offer personalized recommendations for diet, exercise, and weight management to help patients with PCOS. These recommendations can optimize their health and reduce symptoms.
