How is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) treated?

If you have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a range of treatments is available. You may need to work with a range of healthcare professionals such as endocrinologists, fertility specialists, dietitians and exercise physiologists to manage the condition. If you are overweight or obese, aiming at achieving a healthy weight, getting regular physical activity and adopting a healthy diet can help to improve PCOS symptoms. Laparoscopic surgery can be used to either remove or treat an ovary, or remove androgen-producing tissue to improve hormone imbalances.
