The most common treatments for polycystic ovarian syndrome are regular exercise, weight control, eating a healthy diet, not smoking and, in certain cases, hormone medication. Treatment entirely depends on the symptoms exhibited and if pregnancy is desired, according to WebMD.
Overweight people with PCOS often balance their hormones and start the menstrual cycle by simply losing weight, notes WebMD. If weight loss does not start ovulation or a person does not need to lose weight, medication may help. If weight loss and medication fail to start ovulation, it may be necessary to see a fertility specialist for more advanced treatment options.
