Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Study

PCOS Study

Irregular periods, adult acne, unwanted hair growth, weight gain…do you suffer from the most common hormone disorder affecting women, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

Are you interested in participating in a study to evaluate holistic, non-drug methods to treat PCOS?

We are now enrolling women with a diagnosis of PCOS as participants in a research study on non-drug interventions in the treatment of PCOS. If you are interested in participating in the study or would like to learn more, please call LECOM Women’s Health at (814) 868-7830 or email Dr. Speelman at pcosstudy@lecom.edu.

Enrollment is now through Dec. 31st.

PCOS is the most common hormone disorder in women, affecting as many as 1 in 10 women. The disorder affects female health from puberty to the reproductive years and beyond. It can affect not only hormone health, but also reproductive health, cardiovascular health, mental health, and body weight. To learn more about PCOS, including the common signs and symptoms, please visit the U.S. Women’s Health or Mayo Clinic informational sites.

Current therapies for PCOS typically involve drugs that target specific symptoms associated with PCOS. The goal of this study is to evaluate holistic, non-drug approaches (yoga or osteopathic manipulative therapy) for improvement of the health of women with PCOS.
