  • Question: Is there a natural way to treat PCOS?


  • Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine This is Dr. Clisham — if the patient is overweight, we usually recommend lifestyle modifications, such as diet and exercise. There are also vitamin supplements you can take that contain Inositol which may aid in insulin resistance, a typical component of PCOS.

  • Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine This is Dr. Clisham. The majority of couples that come to us don’t require the most advanced and expensive forms of fertility therapy. For those requiring more advanced therapies, there are companies that will underwrite fertility treatments and we also work with a financing company, CapEx, that is specifically for fertility patients.

  • Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine  typically we use a couple of screening tests for ovarian reserve, including a blood test called AMH, and an ultrasound to measure the number of antral follicles.
