Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a perplexing combination of symptoms that may cause infertility, increased miscarriage rates, and often lead to Type 2 Diabetes. Symptoms that are easily noted are irregular periods, facial hair, and thinning hair. Further testing often reveals lack of ovulation and multiple, small cysts on the ovaries.

While PCOS is often treated from a fertility perspective in OB/Gyn offices, Teresa recognizes PCOS as a metabolic disease closely related to insulin resistance. Women can often have improvement in their PCOS symptoms and may even achieve pregnancy after treatment of the underlying metabolic disorder.

PCOS affects an estimated 4-12% of American women

With a background in Women’s Health, Teresa is knowledgeable in treating symptoms of PCOS as well as teaching fertility tracking methods that may help achieve pregnancy. All the while, we will focus on improving metabolic health and preventing PCOS from progressing to Type 2 Diabetes.
