What kind of doctor can diagnose and treat PCOS?

Any type of doctor familiar with PCOS might make the diagnosis, but the disorder is complicated and may be best treated by a specialist. Those having difficulty getting pregnant should see a reproductive endocrinologist, while long-term management by an endocrinologist should be considered. A general practitioner or an OBGYN may treat some women with the syndrome, but someone who specializes in endocrine disorders may be more familiar with treatment options and recent studies on PCOS.

I find that my ob/gyn has the most knowledge on the subject and sees the most people with this disorder. I have seen an endo... they weren't sure what to do with me but were very interested in learning about me!

I was one of the lucky few who have a PCP who was very knowledgeable about the disease. She diagnosed me at a time when PCOS was still being debated about its validity as a true disease. Unfortunately, there are a lot of doctors out they who persist in the old school belief that the disease is not real.

If you suspect that you have PCOS, it is critical that you choose a knowlegeable doctor.
