Women who have difficulty getting pregnant are often diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). These women suffer from ovulation disorders due to irregular periods – or – no menstruation. Multiple cysts on the ovaries develop because of an overproduction of hormones – androgens. The Infertility Doctor recommends easy dietary tips about what foods his patients should include in their diet to manage their symptoms of PCOS.
