Understanding how Dr. Chappell uses his PCOS expertise
Dr. Chappell’s PCOS expertise is incredibly relevant in the current landscape of fertility, as more women are faced with hormonal disorders like PCOS.
- Symptoms of PCOS. This metabolic disorder affects many women of reproductive age. It often consists of a failure to ovulate, high levels of male hormones, a diminished ability to metabolize glucose and small fluid-filled cysts in the ovaries. PCOS can often be diagnosed through blood tests and a transvaginal ultrasound.
- PCOS treatment options. Our Louisiana fertility doctor is knowledgeable about treatment options for polycystic ovary syndrome. He is so passionate about this topic that he wrote his thesis at the Baylor College of Medicine on PCOS, for which he received international recognition with multiple awards and publications. Some treatment options include utilizing the medication Metformin and taking oral fertility medications or injectable gonadotropins alone or in conjunction with in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intrauterine insemination (IUI).
- Insulin resistance and PCOS. Dr. Chappell is also interested in helping women who have PCOS and insulin resistance. Insulin can increase levels of a woman’s luteinizing hormone, suppress follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and prevent the egg follicles from properly developing. Metformin can support women with insulin resistance.
Dr. Chappell’s PCOS expertise allows him to offer patients with PCOS leading-edge support as they navigate the journey to parenthood.
