Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects almost 1 in 10 women, yet it has different consequences for each woman. Some of the most common symptoms are irregular periods, excess body or facial hair, acne and difficulty maintaining a healthy weight. It may also be associated with depression, difficulty getting pregnant, predisposition to type II diabetes and other long-term health problems.
The PCOS Clinic at UCSF Medical Center offers an integrated approach to treating polycystic ovarian syndrome. Patients see a team of specialists in reproductive endocrinology, dermatology, nutrition, psychology and genetics. We work together with each patient to create an individualized treatment plan that will work for her. We are also developing a psycho-educational group and exercise program series for women who would like to start integrating exercise into their lives.
Patients are also welcome to participate in our PCOS research program, which will help us understand the cause of PCOS and the best methods of treatment.
Depending on your health insurance, you may need a referral from a primary care doctor.
