Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects almost 1 in 10 women and is the most common endocrine disorder among women of reproductive age.

Symptoms may include irregular periods, excess body or facial hair, acne, and difficulty maintaining a healthy weight. PCOS also may be  associated with depression, difficulty getting pregnant, predisposition to type 2 diabetes, and other long-term health problems.

The UCSF Multidisciplinary PCOS Clinic offers an integrated approach to treating polycystic ovarian syndrome. Our patients see a team of specialists in reproductive endocrinology, dermatology, nutrition, psychology and genetics. We work together with each patient to create an individualized treatment plan.
