Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance that affects women and is one of the leading causes of infertility.

Common symptoms associated with PCOS include

  1. Trouble getting pregnant or holding a pregnancy

  2. Infrequent, delayed or no periods

  3. Acne

  4. Excess body and facial hair

  5. Thinning hair or male-patterned baldness

  6. Cystic ovaries

  7. Overweight

  8. Skin tags

  9. Sleep apnea

  10. Depression or anxiety

 

Women with PCOS have elevated levels of androgens, which leads to no ovulation or delayed ovulation.  The hormonal imbalance environment can result in poor egg quality and a less receptive uterine environment for implantation, leading to infertility or miscarriage.


Clinical studies show that acupuncture two or more times a week helps in the control of PCOS. If you have been diagnosed with PCOS by your physician and you are planning to have a baby, we can help you to balance your hormones and increase your chances of conceiving naturally, and most importantly, having a healthy pregnancy and baby.
