PCOS and Ovulatory Conditions
In this on-demand fertility webinar, we deep dive into all the treatment options, diet strategies and supplements that can get great results in PCOS.
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, most commonly referred to as PCOS, is a complex condition in which there are clusters of numerous small-sized cysts developed in the ovaries. It is generally accompanied by an imbalance of reproductive hormones. Women with PCOS produce a slightly greater amount of male hormones called androgens and this imbalance can lead to hormonal imbalances that cause conditions like amenorrhea which is the complete absence of menstrual periods, hirsutism in which there is excess and abnormal growth of hair on a woman’s face and body, and enlarged ovaries with multiple cysts.
PCOS and its associated hormonal imbalance can disrupt normal egg maturation and endometrial health.
One of the most common scenarios is an anovulatory cycle, where no egg is released during a menstrual cycle but the woman still gets a bleed.
Also, in some cases, ovulation may be delayed, which makes finding that precious “fertility window” tricky.
Thankfully, PCOS responds amazingly well to natural treatments aimed at correcting hormonal imbalances, reducing inflammation and supporting regular, healthy ovulation.
If you are not sure if you have PCOS, but suspect you have problems with hormonal imbalance or ovulation, then you will still get a lot of value from this webinar.
