RMACT Talks About Detecting PCOS in Teens

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) shares their expertise regarding a fairly common condition that is often detected in teens called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Early detection and treatment of PCOS can help many women and teens learn how to live more fully and happily with PCOS and limit long-term health effects.

Recognizing PCOS In Teens

At Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), we have a multidisciplinary team that offers evaluation, education, and personalized management to pediatric patients and their parents regarding common PCOS symptoms. Adolescence can be a challenging enough time without the added symptoms that are often associated with PCOS.

Booking Your PCOS Appointment

In order to get you started, I have outlined the basic steps to booking an initial PCOS consult:

  1. Obtain referral – We want all patients to have referrals from an outside physician (pediatrician, gynecologist, or any other physician). The reason for this is because often times, certain gynecological and endocrine issues can be easily addressed by a GYN or primary care provider. However, if your Doctor believes you present with PCOS symptoms and would benefit from seeing a PCOS specialist, they can then refer you to us.

  2. Have patient’s demographics and insurance information available.

  3. Schedule initial evaluation with Diana D’Amelio, RPA-C & Head of our adolescent PCOS program.

  4. Schedule initial nutrition consultation with one of our Nutritionists.

  5. Complete new patient paperwork and submit relevant medical records at least two days before the initial consultation.
