Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Fertility
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects approximately 5% to 10% of women in the U.S. of reproductive age, and is a condition that impacts fertility. Our fertility specialists provide PCOS treatment and therapy to women in the Austin area who desire a more natural approach to health and overcoming fertility issues. This metabolic condition is one of the most common causes of infertility, often associated with glucose intolerance and insulin resistance.
Symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome include:
- Hirsutism (excess hair growth)
- Acne or oily skin
- Thinning of hair on the head (male pattern baldness)
- Irregular or absent menstrual cycles
Women with PCOS typically produce excess male hormones and insufficient levels of progesterone and estrogen, which impacts the ability to ovulate. With proper PCOS treatment many women have found it is possible to keep symptoms under control while enhancing fertility. Reproductive issues are often improved or eliminated when a greater focus is placed on overall health and the body’s ability to heal itself.
We believe in a holistic approach when it comes to managing PCOS symptoms and trying to conceive. By using an integrative approach, and combining Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western medicine, outcomes are improved greatly. Acupuncture is highly effective for women who suffer from all kinds of reproductive issues that impact their ability to become pregnant, along with lifestyle changes and a focus on better nutrition. The PCOS therapy best for you depends on your specific symptoms, genetics, lifestyle and environmental factors. Our natural fertility specialists work closely with each patient in an effort to understand your history and all facets of your life that could contribute to disease or illness in the body.
Austin’s Premier Natural Fertility Clinic
Conventional PCOS treatment may include prescription medications that increase ovulation, birth control pills to regulate the menstrual cycle, and medications designed to keep acne and excess hair growth under control. Acupuncture is a PCOS therapy that works to reduce stress, regulate hormones, increase blood flow to the reproductive organs, and balance the energy in the body to promote overall health.
