Dr. Sklar discusses treating polycystic ovarian syndrome.
There are varied treatments and they depend on what a woman is trying to accomplish and where she is in her reproductive life. The treatment is different if a woman is interested in contraception and preventing pregnancy than for a woman who desires pregnancy, than for a woman who is doing cancer prevention who no longer has pregnancy as an issue. So it really depends on where a woman is in her reproductive lifetime as to what kind of treatments would be recommended.
