Polycystic ovary syndrome

PCOS is a common condition among women caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones. This imbalance causes problems in the ovaries.


Polycystic ovary syndrome involves having irregular periods or amenorrhea and predisposes to various pathologies such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, among others.

Integrative gynecology approaches this pathology in its full dimension with totally personalized treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

PCOS is born, not made. The patient with PCOS is born with it and dies with it. What happens is that its symptoms can be modified throughout a woman’s life.

PCOS is a pathology of unknown and multifactorial cause. What is known is that patients who have PCOS are most likely to father girls who will also have PCOS as a result of their exposure to their mother’s male hormones in utero.

I always opt for integrative gynecology as a fundamental weapon for the treatment of PCOS, leaving the use of contraceptives relegated to patients who request it.
