- Over development of breast tissue.

HOW WE TREAT THE PROBLEM
As the endocrine system and other parts of the body are different between men and women, we carefully assess and determine the solution for you based on your condition and needs. Along with dietary and supplement changes, we may also suggest some of the following routes:
- Medications containing forms of estrogen and progesterone to help regular menstrual cycles.
- Vaginal estrogen that can be applied to the vaginal tissues to reduce symptoms or estrogen pills may be prescribed.
- Hormone replacement therapies may temporarily reduce severe symptoms such as hot flashes or night sweats.
- Anti-androgen medications to block the male sex hormones.
- ART or Assisted reproductive technology such as IVF to help those with PCOS get pregnant.
We prescribe medications and treatments that help manage or lower blood sugar levels, improve symptoms of hypothyroidism and conditions that may lower testosterone levels and delay puberty.
