PCOS Treatment in Dubai


Polycystic ovary syndrome, commonly called PCOS, is a common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age. This complex hormonal condition is developed due to the imbalance of hormones produced in the ovaries. 

PCOS got its name from the characteristic cysts which form on the ovaries. If there are cysts on the ovaries, it is indicative of PCOS. Due to this, the ovaries develop multiple tiny follicles that cause interference with the normal reproduction process. 

Dr. Mustafa Aldam specializes in treating gynecological hormonal disorders like PCOS. If required, he collaborates with endocrinologists to effectively address severe symptoms of PCOS and prevent potential complications.

Sometimes PCOS symptoms start as early as puberty. For example, women may notice symptoms around their first menstrual period. But in most cases, the symptoms develop when one has gained a substantial amount of weight. Therefore, if you have noticed two or more of the above-listed symptoms, see a PCOS doctor in Dubai for a timely diagnosis and treatment.

Diagnosis of PCOS

Dr. Mustafa diagnoses PCOS by thoroughly evaluating the patient’s medical history, symptoms, and physical examination. Ultrasound of the ovaries and blood tests are also prescribed to check hormone levels.

Treatment of PCOS

Treatment for PCOS varies with age, overall health, and your plans of becoming pregnant in the future. 

Lifestyle Modifications

Correcting your lifestyle with physical activities and dietary changes can help manage PCOS symptoms. The goal is to reduce weight which helps in improving insulin resistance and decreasing the risk of developing further complications. This will help your body consume insulin more efficiently, lower blood glucose levels, and may also help you ovulate.

Eat nutrient-rich food, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and legumes, along with good fats and low-fat dairy alternatives. Healthy habits help restore ovulation and make your body more responsive to fertility treatments.

If lifestyle changes are just not enough to manage PCOS symptoms, you may require certain medications to improve the condition and enhance the chances of conceiving a baby.

If you want to become pregnant - you would require medications to stimulate ovulation. You may consult about the associated risks and concerns with Dr. Mustafa.

If you do not want to become pregnant - your treatment may include birth control pills. These medications help lower androgen levels, regulate menstrual cycles, and reduce acne and other symptoms.

Diabetes medication is also advised to lower insulin resistance in PCOS. This medication, in turn, helps reduce androgen levels, slow hair growth, and helps you ovulate.


If medication cannot help, Dr. Mustafa recommends a minor surgical procedure called laparoscopic ovarian drilling (LOD) as a treatment option for women with fertility problems. Ovarian drilling is done through a small incision at the belly button under general anesthesia. 

Destroying portions of the ovaries through laproscopy may help restore regular ovulation cycles. It improves ovarian responsiveness and offers favorable reproductive and endocrinal effects.
