PCOS is one of the most common causes of infertility in women worldwide, accounting for almost 70 percent of all infertility cases. A disorder of the endocrine system, PCOS results in multiple cysts in one or both ovaries, leading to problems with ovulation or the release of egg, which in turn hinders conception.
Statistics indicate that approximately 5-10% of women in their reproductive age are affected by PCOS.Apart from causing problems in natural conception, untreated PCOS can increase the risk of health disorders such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.
Fertility specialists at Gaudium IVF and Surrogacy Clinic specialize in treating poly cystic ovary syndrome, and have helped hundreds of PCOS patients have a child of their own.
PCOS is associated with hormonal imbalance including abnormally high levels of the male hormone testosterone in a woman’s body. This hormonal imbalance manifests in the form of signs and symptoms which can includeUnexplained weight gain
While it is not completely understood why some women develop polycystic ovaries and others don’t, in many cases, PCOS is a genetic disorder. Diagnosis of PCOS involves a series of tests including a physical examination of the pelvic region, ultrasound and blood tests.
