Children born to women with polycystic ovary syndrome—short- and long-term impacts on health and development

Maternal PCOS status may negatively influence offspring infant and childhood growth, cardiometabolic health, reproductive health, and neurodevelopment. Current findings across studies are divergent, often because of small numbers of subjects, as well as heterogeneous selection criteria, ethnicities, and definitions of control groups. Coexisting maternal obesity, pregnancy complications, and comorbidity make it difficult to identify the contribution of maternal PCOS. Large, prospective, international, multiethnic studies with standardized investigation protocols and questionnaires on PCOS offspring health and development are needed.


I shared below our Acubalance approach to PCOS that I presented (excerpt of lecture) at a fertility conference in Los Angeles in March 2019


Video: Integrative Approach for Ovulatory Disorders and PCOS Infertility.

Acubalance's approach (Chinese medicine, acupuncture, herbs low level laser therapy, supplements, stress reduction, diet and lifestyle) to treat ovulatory disorders like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). The full lecture is available for acupuncturists on Healthy Seminars.


If you have been diagnosed with PCOS or have ovulatory disorders please know that there are natural approaches to balancing your hormones and restoring ovulation so you can ovulate naturally. Both you and your future child's health can benefit from this preconception approach before taking ovulation drugs or IVF.
