Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Holistic Care

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is common, affecting 8-12% of  Australian women. It is a condition where women have a combination of insulin resistance and elevated androgen levels.

The result is the development of multiple small, hormonally active follicles on each ovary, which perpetuate a vicious cycle of anovulation, irregular periods and peripheral androgen effects like unwanted hair growth, skin pigmentation and acne. Some women with PCOS experience significant scalp hair loss – this can cause considerable stress for women.

At Women’s Health Melbourne, we understand the impact that Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) has on a woman’s life – and we can help you to make a big difference.

Our treatments address the different elements of PCOS simultaneously including:

  • Menstrual control and endometrial protection
  • Effective treatment of unwanted hair and skin breakouts
  • Successful weight management
  • Improvements in confidence and self-esteem
  • Fertility assistance when desired

Our model of care is to offer women with PCOS ongoing care and support.
