[The effect of a decrease in body weight in patients with the polycystic ovary syndrome]
Eighty patients with the polycystic ovaries syndrome and excessive body mass were examined. In 60 patients body mass reduction resulted from diets and in 20 it occurred over the course of acupuncture. Such treatment resulted in pregnancy in 27 (33.7%) patients. Therefore, diets or acupuncture for body mass reduction are recommended for patients with polycystic ovaries and obesity as the first stage of treatment.
