PCOS And Fertility By Louise Parker

Unfortunately, one of the most common side effects of living with PCOS is infertility. Since the ovaries are not able to function properly due to a lack of hormones, having consistent and regular periods are uncommon. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to get pregnant and most sufferers with PCOS struggle to fall pregnant without the help of various fertility medications. These medications come in both natural and drug forms and each have their own side effects. As a last resort, in vitro fertilization has been recommended if natural conception isn’t possible. The best thing a PCOS sufferer can do is to speak to their doctor about what fertility treatment is best for them. One of the most popular drugs used for sufferers of PCOS is called clomiphene. This drug is often prescribed to women that haven’t had their periods for an extended length of time. Clomiphene, in addition to hormone therapy, has been successful in inducing menstruation for many PCOS sufferers so that pregnancy becomes possible. Studies have shown that between 70-90 percent of women who take the drug ovulate, with a pregnancy rate varying from 30-70 percent. As with all drugs, there are side effects associated with clomiphene. Users have reported hot flashes, abdominal discomfort (already common in women with PCOS) and blurred vision. Another popular treatment is hormone injections with hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG can trigger ovulation in women who don’t produce enough of the hormone to trigger it themselves. A final alternative is what is called gonadotropin therapy. This is also a form of hormone injection that can trick the body into ovulation. This treatment has the highest rate of pregnancy (60%), but 35% of those pregnancies have been shown to end in miscarriage. Also, with this hormone treatment, the likelihood of a multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets or more) is much greater. A multiple pregnancy is considered high-risk for the mother and the babies. There are natural alternatives to PCOS-induced infertility. While doctors may disagree on the effectiveness of these treatments, if you wish to keep your body as chemical-free as possible, you might want to take these methods into consideration. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of healing pain, stress and pretty much everything else with

the use of thin, sharp needles. It is based on the idea that the body should have a balance in the energy that flows through it to remain healthy. If you are experiencing pain or sickness, than your body is not properly balanced. Acupuncture is used to realign the body back to health. Homeopathic healing is another popular alternative. Trained Homeopaths look to treat the symptoms instead of the conditions since PCOS sufferers all tend to have their own unique individual symptoms. Before any remedies are given, a persons complete family history, their medical history and things like moods, likes, dislikes, sexual history and emotional state are taken into consideration. The use of herbs as fertility drugs has been around since the beginning of time. Herbs such as liferoot, chasteberry, partridgeberry and red clover show incredible potential to help in fertility treatments. No matter what path you choose, please know that no treatment is absolute and that the path to parenthood may be a tough one. Be patient and stay positive and you might hear the pitter-patter of little feet sooner rather than later. Louise Parker has an interest in PCOS. For further information on PCOS please visit or

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments By James S. Pendergraft

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome or functional ovarian hyperandrogenism is an endocrine disorder that is seen occurring in 22 to 23 percent of the women’s population. It is a fairly common disorder of the hormones that occurs in teenagers and young women. It was first recognized in the year 1935. In polycystic ovarian syndrome the ovary starts to mature twice the follicles than normal every month. These follicles mature, enlarge but do not release an egg. Normally during every menstrual cycle 5 follicles mature and there is maturation of at least one egg at ovulation, however in PCOS there is no release of an egg. This disease is said to run in families and is more common among the Asian decent women. The actually cause of PCOS is still unknown but it is said to be related to irregular menstrual period or heavy bleeding. Another cause could be related to the amount of insulin production in your body. More the level of insulin, more are the chances of the insulin regulating the levels of sugar in the body. If there is extra insulin, it causes an imbalance in the hormones, thus making your menstrual cycle run smoothly. The most common symptoms of PCOS are irregular periods, very light or heavy bleeding, occurrence of acne, hirsutism a condition where girls have extra growth of hair on face, neck, chest and lower abdomen and obesity. For PCOS to be diagnosed properly, one must visit a gynaecologist or an endocrinologist. After finding out the medical history of the patient the doctor will further do a physical check up. This will include a blood test, weight, physical changes like skin darkening, hair growth and gynaecologic examination if you are sexually active person. PCOS must be treated early or can cause infertility to the young women in the long run, thus refraining her from having any children. If one desires to have children they must get the PCOS treated at an early stage. Many women have children even after developing the syndrome and getting an early treatment. PCOS is a condition that cannot be cured completely but can be taken care of and treated. The doctor will help you loose weight if you have gained excess of it, through certain exercises and diet plans. This balancing of weight may further help bring the hormone levels to normal. Medicines like birth control pills and progesterone may be prescribed by the doctor to treat PCOS. These medicines and other creams prescribed by the doctor also help the girl control the excessive growth of hair and the occurrence of acne. However the medication does not always help every woman. Women PCOS who want to conceive and have failed to respond to fertility drugs can get treated through surgery. A procedure called Laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD) helps the women conceive. This technique destroys the tissues on the ovaries that produce testosterone and it thus helps in improving the hormone imbalance and ovulation cycle for long, helping women conceive. Treating infertility is one of the most prominent treatments that PCOS women desire for. To Your Health! Dr. James S. Pendergraft opened the Orlando Women's Center in
