Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder in women of childbearing age.
There is no cure for PCOS, but lifestyle management (dietary, exercise and behavioral interventions) and use of certain medications can help manage some PCOS symptoms. There is evidence suggesting that some supplements can help manage symptoms of PCOS. These supplements include inositols (myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol), alpha-lipoic acid, chromium, vitamin B-12 and folic acid, vitamin D, melatonin, and quercetin. There is also very preliminary evidence that fenugreek extract may be helpful.
