Pregnancy and childbirth are truly miraculous, and many people aspire to be parents at some point in their lives. But if you're struggling to conceive a baby with your partner, chances are, you're not alone. It's estimated that 6% – 12% of couples struggle with infertility. Infertility can be caused by a variety of factors, but for women, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common. Thankfully, PCOS can be managed with proper, comprehensive treatment. Dr. Lynsey Johnson, DNP, FNP-C is a family nurse practitioner who has worked for years to manage her own condition and aims to help other women do the same.

SYMPTOMS OF INFERTILITY
The most common signs that women struggling with infertility may experience include:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Hormonal imbalance
- Painful sex
- Long, heavy, or painful periods
Typically, infertility is diagnosed when a couple has tried to conceive with unprotected sex for over a year without success. Infertility can also be at play when a woman is able to get pregnant but endures many miscarriages or stillbirths.
How is infertility diagnosed?
To figure out the cause of your infertility, Dr. Johnson will ask you to undergo blood work. She may also advise you to receive a sonogram from an accredited facility to get a proper look at the ovaries and uterus. Once the root cause of your infertility is found, it can usually be treated.
How is infertility in women treated?
Infertility can be treated based on its cause. If irregular PCOS hormones are causing complications with your menstrual cycle, Dr. Johnson can treat your polycystic ovarian syndrome and prescribe medications to help you ovulate on a more normal schedule.
Do you accept insurance?
PCOS Sisters Telehealth Clinic & Wellness Center offers both pay per visit and membership subscriptions. We are a cash pay only practice, meaning we do not accept insurance. Cash pay includes credit cards and debit cards. We cannot accept Medicaid or Medicare patients, even if you agree to pay cash as we do not bill insurance. If you have insurance that covers your labs, imaging, and medications, you may use it, but you might find that our discounted prices are cheaper if you self-pay.
YOU HAVE OPTIONS
Struggling to conceive when you desperately want to is a painful experience to navigate. But you're not alone, and you have options. Women with PCOS may struggle to conceive more than women without PCOS, but managing the condition can regulate your cycle and help you ovulate on a consistent schedule. If your dreams of expanding your family are being hindered by infertility, reach out to Dr. Johnson and schedule a PCOS evaluation.
