Polycystic ovary syndrome

PCOS is the most common problem faced by adolescent females (the reproductive age group). PCOS is curable, but before seeking medical advice you need to know what exactly PCOS is, and how you can deal with it. First, understand what PCOS is, understand what is wrong with your body, and do you need to seek medical help.

Understanding is the key

PCOS -PCOD: Imapct of lifestyle

PCOD or PCOS, is a common syndrome in women, and understanding its cause and effect relationships, and taking precautionary measures, are very importnant steps towards a healthy womenhood.
    Life style assessment
    Before asking for medical help, assess your lifestyle, is it healthy or you need to make some changes in it. If yes then unless and until you don’t change that there is no use of spending money on medical treatment or pills or any kind of treatment.
    PCOS and Obesity
    The link between PCOS and obesity is complicated. Women with PCOS produce too much insulin, or the insulin they produce does not work as it should. The inability of insulin to function normally is one reason why women with PCOS tend to gain weight or have a hard time losing weight. For others, PCOS develops later on, following substantial weight gain. Some studies report that overweight and obesity incidence in females with PCOS is as high as 80%.
    Lean PCOS
    It is possible to have PCOS and be a healthy weight or even underweight. This is known as lean PCOS. Women with lean PCOS may struggle with irregular periods, insulin resistance, infertility, and other symptoms caused by elevated androgens (testosterone) levels such as excess facial hair and acne.
    Diet for PCOS management
    Diet recommendations for women with PCOS are more or less similar to those recommended for the general population or those suffering from Diabetes, Obesity and Elevated Cholesterol. There is no ‘Best PCOS Diet’.

PCOD - and related complications

If you don't manage PCOD or get treated, it may lead to severe complications for your health.
  • PCOS & Infertility

    PCOS is one of the most common, but treatable, causes of infertility in women. In women with PCOS, the hormonal imbalance interferes with the growth and release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation). If you don't ovulate, you can't get pregnant.
  • PCOS & Sleep apnea

    Sleep apnea — a disorder that causes breathing to stop during sleep and raises the risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
  • PCOS & Menstruation

    Women with PCOS experience irregular periods, excessive/heavy periods, no or pro-longed/delayed periods, and painful periods/dysmenorrhea
  • PCOS & Gestational diabetes

    Gestational diabetes (diabetes when pregnant)—which puts the pregnancy and baby at risk and can lead to type 2 diabetes later in life for both mother and child
  • PCOS & Diabeties

    Women with PCOS are four times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than similar peers without the disorder. More than half of women with PCOS develop type 2 diabetes by age 40.
  • PCOS & Hair

    Women with PCOS also have higher levels of androgens (male hormones that females also have), which cancause acne, thinning scalp hair, and excess hair growth on the face and body.
  • PCOS & Stroke

    plaque (cholesterol and white blood cells) clogging blood vessels can lead to blood clots that in turn can cause a stroke
  • PCOS & Heart Diseases

    Women with PCOS are at higher risk, and risk increases with age. High LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and low HDL (“good”) cholesterol—increasing the risk for heart disease.
