Polycystic Ovaries

At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, located in the prestigious areas of Belgravia and Dulwich, London, we specialise in diagnosing and managing Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing comprehensive support and tailored treatments to women affected by PCOS, improving their health outcomes and quality of life.

Understanding Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition affecting how the ovaries function, characterized by irregular menstrual periods, higher levels of certain hormones, and multiple small cysts on the ovaries. The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it is often associated with insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances. Individuals with PCOS may experience difficulties with fertility, weight gain, acne, and excessive hair growth.

Our Diagnostic Approach

Proper diagnosis of PCOS is crucial for effective management. At Grosvenor Gardens Healthcare, we employ a thorough diagnostic approach:

  • Medical Assessment: Reviewing symptoms, medical history, and family history of related conditions.
  • Blood Tests: Hormonal profiling to check levels of androgens and other hormones that can indicate PCOS.
  • Ultrasound Scanning: To detect the presence of polycystic ovaries and assess their condition
