Lifestyle modification is a central part of treatment for all manifestations of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Regular moderate physical activity has been shown to mitigate insulin resistance and increase responsiveness to medications in PCOS patients, aiding better management of associated metabolic and hormonal disturbances. However, it is difficult for many of us to follow an exercise routine and deal with the fatigue that sets in. What are some ways to increase adherence to daily exercise? Can regular exercise help with the dermatological complications of PCOS such as extra hair growth, acne and hair loss as well? To get answers to these questions and understand the science behind how exercise helps with PCOS symptoms, we are talking to Dr Sasha Hakman, a board certified OBGYN with training in Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility and special interest in fitness and nutrition. Dr Hakman will discuss differences in responsiveness to exercise, if there are any, in pcos vs non-pcos patients, with focus on specific exercises that may help with reducing weight, regularizing periods, improving ovulation/fertility and help with dermatological complications. RSVP to join us and clarify your queries, post your questions or just listen to the discussion.

Although the butterfly shaped thyroid gland located at the base of the neck is very small, it produces a vital hormone that regulates metabolism and influences every organ, tissue and cell in the body. Hypothyroidism is characterized by low production of thyroid hormone which if left untreated may lead to long-term complications such as heart diseases, diabetes, nerve injury and infertility. We talked to reproductive endocrinologist Dr Aimee Evyazzadeh of Egg Whisperer Enterprises and Dr Christine Maren – a board certified physician who addressed her own pregnancy complications & hypothyroidism using functional medicine – to learn about the effects of hypothyroidism & Hashimoto’s disease on fertility, its connection with PCOS & gut health, and its management using conventional and functional medicine.
