Question: Hello,

My partner's ultrasound has revealed that she has Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome.

She got this test as a routine checkup recommended by her dermatologist.

Can you please look at the attached report and let me know if this is serious? What is the treatment for this? Is this curable?

Hi dear, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder associated with irregular menstrual cycles, acne, hirsutism and polycystic ovaries on ultrasound. It is improved by proper medications.
Please upload the report, as it is not visible in this question.

Hi Doc,

My friend is 29, not married.

She is getting treatment for hair loss from her dermatologist. She does not have acne.

What are the implications of PCOS? Can this be treated?

Thank you
doctor

Brief Answer:
Detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear, the criteria for diagnosing PCOS is presence of any two of the following three criteria:
1. Irregular menstrual cycles
2. Polycystic ovaries on ultrasound
3. Presence of excessive androgen hormone in body or hirsutism or acne
In your friend, only one criteria is fulfilled and hence she cannot be diagnosed to have PCOS until serum testosterone level and DHEA levels (androgen hormones) are found to be high.I suggest her to get these investigations done from a good reliable lab.
Treatment is needed in only those females who have any symptoms mentioned above or are having difficulty in conception. Otherwise no treatment is advocated.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
You can get back to me for health related queries by asking a direct question to me on health care magic portal.
Wishing you both good health.
