Unfortunately, PCOS is one condition that does not have a cure yet. But there is nothing to be worried about since several methods decrease or even eliminate the symptoms of this disease and make you feel healthier. Doctors often prescribe numerous medications for treating PCOS symptoms, such as irregular menstrual cycles, elevated blood sugar, excessive hair, and acne. Fertility treatments can also be prescribed to women who are trying to conceive. The best part is, losing as little as 5 percent of the excess weight allows patients to ovulate more frequently and decrease the severity of other symptoms. Ideally, this weight loss occurs due to a combination of exercise and nutrition. The excessive weight might seem hard to get rid of, but patients should continue their efforts to prevent the development of major health complications that exacerbate the condition further.
