PCOS Treatment

PCOS Treatment

PCOS (Poly cystic Ovarian Syndrome) is the most common hormonal condition amongst at least 1 out of 10 women of reproductive age. PCOS is an endocrine system disorder that can be difficult to diagnose at times, and is common for women who are within the reproductive age. PCOS causes lack of ovulation or irregular ovulation and women affected sometimes have enlarged ovaries containing collection of fluids. This may lead to changes in the menstrual cycle, fertility, cysts in the ovaries, cardiac function, trouble in conceiving pregnancy and other health issues.

Causes of Polycystic ovary syndrome

  • The definite cause of Polycystic ovary syndrome is unknown, but doctors believe that hormonal imbalances and genetics may be a factor. A woman is more likely to develop PCOS, if  her mother or sister also has the same condition.
  • PCOS problems are caused by hormone changes means one hormone change triggers another, which changes another.
  • Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another reason for  PCOS. Androgen is a male sex hormone that women’s bodies also produce.
  • Generally women with PCOS, produce higher than normal levels of androgen. This can affect the development of PCOS and release of eggs during ovulation.
  • Excess insulin may also cause high androgen levels.

The main cause of PCOS cannot be easily identified. But PCOS may be caused due to,

  • Low-grade inflammation
  • Excess Insulin
  • Hereditary Conditions
