Your healthcare provider may discuss your symptoms and menstrual history with you. He/she may also note your family history and your risk factors for the condition. Along with a physical health checkup, your doctor may recommend a pelvic exam, blood tests and ultrasonography to help diagnose PCOS.

A combination of the following alternatives is used to treat PCOS. The options include:
- Lifestyle modifications including eating a healthy diet, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight
