Is there a cure for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

There is no cure for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Healthcare providers can usually address the most bothersome symptoms. Because of the complexity of the hormonal interactions, women with PCOS may need to see an endocrinologist. They may also need to visit a reproductive endocrinologist, especially if they are infertile and trying to conceive. Not all healthcare providers have experience treating PCOS, so check with the doctor's office to see if that doctor cares for many people with PCOS.
