Polycystic Ovaries - Treatment of Infertility
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the leading causes of infertility in the world. Understanding the pathogenesis of PCOS thus becomes very important when we are faced with the reality of our modern clinical practice, where by so many patients struggle to become pregnant. In this course Jane Lyttleton does an excellent job of explaining both the Western and Chinese medical view points and treatment options for PCOS, using many published research studies to back up her ideas. She has also added case examples from her own clinical experience, thus empowering the practitioner with a mindset of success.
- Be able to define what PCOS is and be able to recognize it in clinic.
- Be able to understand the main mechanisms at play with PCOS, from both a western and Chinese medical perspective.
- Be able to offer a PCOS patient with skilled treatment options, including the integrated approach of using western assisted reproductive techniques (ART) with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture.
