How we Diagnose PCOS
Understanding how PCOS affects you is a key component that guides us in managing our response to your wellness needs. Our experts perform extensive diagnostic exams using state-of-the-art technology.
These tests include:
Blood Tests: Hormonal blood tests are highly effective at checking your reproductive and male hormone levels. PCOS is normally associated with elevated male hormone (androgens) levels.
Glucose Tolerance Test: Also known as the oral glucose test, this test assesses your body’s responsiveness to sugar.
Abdominal Ultrasound: This test helps assess the overall appearance of your ovaries and uterus through the stomach wall.
Transvaginal Ultrasound: A painless test that’s only recommended for women who have been sexually active. It produces clearer images (sonograms) than abdominal ultrasounds.
PCOS Treatments We Offer
PCOS can be a challenging condition to treat but integrative care comprising medical treatment and lifestyle changes can help. And because there is nothing like a one-size-fits-all answer to this condition, our OBGYN practice in Newport Beach sets itself apart by creating a customized PCOS management plan for each one of our patients.
Our lead physician, Dr. Broad is board-certified, highly experienced, and above all empathetic.
She can help you make crucial lifestyle changes to your diet and exercise plan as a way to relieve PCOS symptoms. For instance, she can help walk you through the specific types of food items – e.g., peaches, chickpeas, maca root powder – you need to eat as a lifestyle intervention for managing polycystic ovarian syndrome.
If necessary, Dr. Broad can prescribe medication such as Letrozole and Clomid® for ovulation based on your conception preferences. In addition, she may recommend medication for insulin sensitization based on your unique symptoms and test results.
Other interventions that you can get at our care center include:
