Polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) and hirsuitism. What can help?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Nika Ferdowsi
Specializes in Family Medicine
Hormone Balance: The signs and symptoms that arise for pcos are due to excessive estrogen. Any way that you can decrease estrogen exposure may help. Others may also recommend balancing your excessive estrogen with additional progesterone. You can explore decreasing your estrogen by reading: the anti-estrogen diet.
