What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance disorder that affects women of childbearing age. The condition is likely related to genetics as abnormally high levels of androgens (male hormones) are produced in the body. In some cases, women with PCOS have small cysts (pockets filled with fluid) on their ovaries. It is important to seek medical attention if you have common signs of PCOS, such as irregular menstrual cycles, fertility problems, or persistent weight gain. At Dr. Caroline Conner, we can provide a diagnosis and customized solutions to manage PCOS. Call our office in Fountain Valley, CA to schedule an appointment.
How Is PCOS Treated?
The most common signs of PCOS include skipped or prolonged periods, infertility, weight gain, acne, hair loss, and the growth of unwanted facial and body hair. Dr. Conner can diagnose PCOS by performing a pelvic exam to check for abnormalities. A blood test and an ultrasound may also be performed. Based on your needs and concerns, your treatment for PCOS may involve birth control pills, progestin therapy, or other medications to regulate your hormones. In addition, Dr. Conner can offer weight loss plans, recommendations for lifestyle changes, and advice on fertility and conception. While some women with PCOS have ovarian cysts, others do not. Cysts can disappear on their own, but in more severe instances, the cysts will need to be surgically removed.
Dr. Caroline Conner Reviews
I’ve been to my fair share of BioTe physicians for HRT since 2014. I’m so glad I cross paths with Dr. Conner because she goes above and beyond the service other physicians I’ve had. She is extremely knowledgeable in HRT and takes in consideration the patients symptoms not just the tests. In my HRT journey I have met more Dr’s that don’t know what they are doing than do and Dr. Conner is a breath of fresh air. Her staff is professional and amazing. Mercedes (her assistant) took care of all my needs and made sure to follow up with me so I know what the next step always was. I will definitely be referring Dr. Conner’s HRT treatments to all my friends and look forward to my next office visit!
Hormone therapy expert. Wonderful staff and amazing Doctor. 10 stars!
Dr. Conner is full of knowledge and truly cares to have her patients succeed when it comes to having a baby. My husband and I are extremely grateful for her support and guidance during our baby journey. She has taken her time with us and explains all the details. I would highly recommend her to family and friends when looking for a OBYGN. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Dr. Conner.
I’ve been to a few different doctors for testosterone therapy and Dr Connor is by far the best and most knowledgeable in the industry. Definitely would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Connor and Mercedes are very knowledgeable and professional. I never had to wait in the lobby for my appointment, they were always on time. I have been to many Dr offices where I feel I am rushed. They spent as much time as we needed to make sure all my questions were answered. We highly recommend.
