At Family Aims, we intimately understand the experiences of women who struggle with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). We know how this condition can affect their lives, altering their most cherished relationships and even their perception of themselves.

That is why we offer our support and put our resources at the disposal of these courageous women with PCOS, accompanying them on their path to wellness and fulfillment. 

This is the opportunity to explore new alternatives for family conception, such as through surrogacy.

What is polycystic ovary syndrome?

PCOS is a common hormonal condition that affects women of reproductive age. It’s characterized by imbalances that can cause a variety of symptoms, including:


Polycystic ovary syndrome is like a silent storm that upsets hormonal balance and triggers a variety of symptoms that make the woman’s day-to-day life difficult.

Menstrual cycles that fade or become erratic, unwanted hair, acne breakouts that blemish the skin, uncontrolled weight gain, and the possibility of being prevented from enjoying motherhood. 

Although the exact origin of PCOS is still a mystery, it’s suspected to be the result of a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors.

It is important to note that the correct diagnosis is provided by competent health professionals, through a series of tests.

Beyond the symptoms

While the symptoms of PCOS are manageable with professional help, it’s essential to be aware of the long-term health consequences of this condition, which must be taken into account when making a definitive diagnosis and evaluating alternative methods of conception.

Fertility problems: PCOS is one of the main causes of female infertility. However, with the proper treatment, many women with PCOS have achieved a successful pregnancy.

Metabolic disturbances: PCOS is associated with an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which increases the likelihood of heart disease.

Weight problems: many women with PCOS experience difficulty controlling their weight, and that, in turn, may worsen other symptoms.

Mental health: like any hormonal condition, PCOS can affect their mood, increasing the risk of anxiety and depression. That’s why emotional support is so necessary.

Potential risks

Polycystic ovary syndrome poses several challenges to both fertility and women’s overall health. Irregular ovulation is one of the main obstacles women with PCOS face when they wish to conceive, but with proper treatment, women may overcome this obstacle.

In exceptionally complex cases, it is not advisable to carry out a natural pregnancy, so alternative options of assisted gestation that can mitigate the risks for mothers with this condition are considered.

PCOS can steal more than just your regular cycle. 

It can whisper doubts and steal the joy of dreaming about building a family. Anxiety and depression can become unwelcome companions, adding another layer to this fight so many women face bravely. But here’s the truth: taking care of your spirit is just as important as taking care of your body.

Alternatives for dealing with PCOS

While there is no definitive cure for PCOS, its symptoms can be effectively managed through a combination of lifestyle changes, medications, and, in some cases, surgery. 

The specific approach will depend on each woman’s needs and preferences. Treatment options include:
