How can polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) be treated?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is classified as incurable. However, the symptoms can be alleviated. The treatment depends on precisely which symptoms are present and whether there is a desire to have children. PROFERTIL® female with its study-proven formulation of micronutrients has proven its worth in this context.
If there is no desire to have children, the contraceptive pill is recommended in most cases. It suppresses hormone production and thus regulates the cycle. Taking the pill can also have a positive effect on acne and excessive body hair.
If a desire to have children is to be fulfilled, then PROFERTIL® female can be the method of choice to support ovulation through the targeted supply of micronutrients and increase the chance of pregnancy.
Overweight women can have a positive effect on polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by losing weight. A moderate low-carb diet is recommended with lots of vegetables, fish, meat and pulses as well as healthy fats and fruit. Ready meals should be avoided altogether if possible. A generous and nutritious breakfast is recommended to start the day.
Surgical attempts can also be made to place small holes in the ovary and thus remove part of the follicle. The process is known as “ovarian drilling”. Ideally, ovulation is achieved this way. Alternatively, artificial insemination in the form of ICSI or IVF plus PROFERTIL® female may be considered.
Furthermore, certain micronutrients can also promote ovulation. In this context, reference is made to PROFERTIL® female with its study-proven formulation.
