PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

PCOS is a reproductive disorder that is linked to metabolic disorder. Usually the patient has absent or irregular periods and PCOS also can cause infertility.  PCOS also has clinical implications in that it predisposes the patient towards diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Basic physiology of PCOS :

  • Ovaries don’t produce mature eggs, instead they contain many small cysts from immature eggs
  • Lack of ovulation
  • Hormonal imbalances – for e.g. excessive androgens like testosterone – causes acne, hirsutism (excessive hair on face)
  • Insulin resistance – in obese women with PCOS- there is impaired glucose intolerance or predisposition to diabetes.
  • Fertility problems
  • Obesity

Treatment protocol via natural medicine dictates a proper diet, weight loss, and to be supported by relevant herbs and supplements.
