It is characterized by multiple small cysts on the ovaries, irregular menstrual cycles, and hormonal imbalances. Treatment for PCOD/PCOS aims to manage symptoms, regulate menstrual cycles, and address the underlying hormonal issues.

The treatment approach may vary depending on the woman’s specific symptoms and goals, such as managing infertility, reducing excessive hair growth (hirsutism), controlling acne, or managing weight.

Lifestyle modifications play a crucial role and may include regular exercise, a balanced diet, and weight management. Birth control pills or other hormonal contraceptives are often prescribed to regulate menstrual cycles and control hormone levels.

For women trying to conceive, fertility medications such as clomiphene may be recommended to stimulate ovulation. In more severe cases or when fertility is not desired, other medications may be prescribed to control hormone levels and manage symptoms.

Managing PCOD/PCOS may require a multi-disciplinary approach, involving gynecologists, endocrinologists, and nutritionists, to address the different aspects of the condition and improve overall health and quality of life. Regular monitoring and follow-up with healthcare providers are essential to assess progress and adjust treatment as needed.
