Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Although the exact cause of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is unknown, PCOS affects as many as 10 percent of women. The Oregon Clinic Obstetricians & Gynecologists provide a full range of health services to help diagnose and treat PCOS.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance disorder in reproductive-aged women. Symptoms may include irregular or absent periods, acne, weight gain, and excess facial and body hair. If left unmanaged, PCOS has the potential to cause serious metabolic disorders.
PCOS Diagnosis & Treatment
There are many conditions that can mimic PCOS, and it’s important to seek evaluation. Treatment is individualized based on symptoms but can include hormonal contraception and nutrition management.
Diet & Nutrition Management
We partner with registered dietitians to offer nutrition therapy that helps manage the symptoms of PCOS.
While PCOS is one of the leading causes of female infertility, the majority of patients go on to have successful pregnancies. Our providers offer a range of family planning and pre-conceptual counseling services.
