So how do you deal with PCOS?

Well, first see a medical professional.  The doctor will take your medical history, draw blood work and conduct a physical.  You can then discuss any issues or concerns you may have about this issue.  This is especially relevant if you long to have children {although some women do have children while battling PCOS}.

The physician will then offer suggestions, prescribe any medications needed and some may even order hormone treatments.

The best treatment method for PCOS is to change your lifestyle.
