Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

affects 1 in 10 women

I Remember

I remember the embarrassment of hair in the wrong places and never-ending acne. I remember not being able to lose weight despite exercising hours and never going over my Weight Watchers Points.

But most of all, I remember the negative pregnancy tests.

20 years after my own struggle with PCOS-related infertility, PCOS is still mostly seen as a gynecological disease of infertility. I know it is so much more than that.
We now know that PCOS is closely related to Type 2 Diabetes and Insulin Resistance.
Treating the underlying Insulin Resistance often significantly improves the symptoms of PCOS.
PCOS is the leading cause of infertility in women

I treat women with PCOS because I remember.

But also because I wish that someone had told me there was a way I could deal with ALL the symptoms, care for my long-term health, and maybe even get pregnant along the way.

Using medical and lifestyle interventions, we can treat the underlying Insulin Resistance and see improvement in PCOS symptoms, often including a return of fertility.
