Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects approximately 7% of women. It is a state of hormonal imbalance in which women make high levels of hormones called androgens, often have irregular or absent menstrual periods, and have multiple small follicles or cysts on the ovaries.
Women with PCOS may struggle with weight control, acne, hirsutism (excess hair growth on the face, chest, abdomen or upper thighs), sleep disorders or depression. PCOS can result in difficulty getting pregnant, insulin resistance, weight gain, metabolic syndrome and other health issues.
At Synergy, we take PCOS treatments a step further than the usual conventional medical approach and address the fertility and metabolic consequences to help patients achieve their healthiest potential. We provide holistic, personalized treatment plans including nutrition, supplements, health coaching, medical acupuncture and medication when needed to help patients achieve their goals.
