Get diagnosed and treated for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome online.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS is a common hormonal disorder that affects 1 in 10 women of reproductive age.

You may have PCOS if you have 2 or more of these symptoms:

  • abnormal periods
  • weight gain
  • infertility
  • acne
  • excessive hair growth
  • insulin resistance
  • scalp hair loss

Diagnosing PCOS

No single test can diagnose PCOS. Your provider will diagnose you based on your symptoms, past medical history, and family history, and they may advise you to complete optional blood tests to rule out other health conditions.

Treatment & Pricing

There is no cure for PCOS and treatment is based on symptoms. Treatment may require a combination of lifestyle changes and medications.

Hormonal Contraceptives

Birth control can help regulate the menstrual cycle and treat other symptoms like excess hair growth and acne. Hormonal birth control decreases the risk of endometrial cancer and a combination estrogen and progestin birth control can help to restore normal hormone balance.

Are you looking to lose weight?

Losing weight is the most important step you can take to help keep PCOS symptoms under control. A 5-10% loss in body weight can help to better regulate your menstrual cycle, improve ovulation, and decrease hirsutism. You may want to consider prescription weight loss medication or working with a registered dietitian.
