While there is no comprehensive cure for PCOS, the available treatments all focus on managing individual symptoms, like obesity, acne, infertility or hirsutism. Specific treatments often involve medication or lifestyle changes. • Lifestyle Changes: Doctors often recommend losing weight with the help of moderate exercise and a low-calorie diet. Even reducing your weight too drastically can improve your existing condition. Losing weight can increase the effectiveness of medication recommended by the doctors. • Medication: Medication is used for regulating a woman’s menstrual cycle. Combination birth control pills are the most common, containing progestin and estrogen. These fix abnormal bleeding issues and reduce the possibility of endometrial cancer, acne, and excessive hair growth. Progestin therapy is also commonly used to regulate the menstrual cycle and protect against endometrial cancer. Drugs like eflornithine, spironolactone, and electrolysis treatments are used to combat hirsutism. • Infertility: For ovulation, doctors often recommend drugs like Letrozole, Metformin, Gonadotropins and Clomiphene.
