You can now live life to the fullest with PCOS
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, in layman’s parlance more commonly referred to as PCOS, has become a widespread anxiety among women these days. For the single young woman it is primarily a cause for cosmetic concern:
Unwanted acne that needs to be disguised with makeup
An ungainly increase in weight, making it difficult to sport trending styles
And worst of all unsightly facial/ bodily hair, robbing you of every vestige of femininity
For the woman longing to cradle a child in her arms, the fears are more emotional
Will I ever be able to raise a family?
When will it happen, if ever?
Will I be young enough when I become a mother? (because as the world knows raising a child takes a lot of energy)
How do you know you have PCOS?
Most often PCOS develops at puberty with the onset of the period; but it can also develop later in life, primarily due to unhealthy lifestyle habits.
The common symptoms of PCOS are
Irregular and far spaced periods, sometimes combined with excessively heavy bleeding.
Because of the irregular ovulation, it is difficult to fall pregnant. On conceiving the chances of miscarrying could be high
A tendency for excessive male pattern hair growth on the body
Or the opposite – male pattern alopecia (balding)
Unusual and rapid weight gain
Development of acne
The growth of collective cysts in the ovaries – the name behind the condition. (Most often these cysts are not malignant but they can bring on an imbalance in the hormones)
If you experience any of the above symptoms, pleases see a doctor immediately. This is not something that you can just wish was not, neither will it go away without the right remedies.
Can PCOS be cured?
That’s the first question in every patient about any ailment or illness. Medicine is not likely to cure PCOS in totality, but the good news is that it can be medically managed with the right treatment.
Having set your fears aside, let’s examine in a little more detail the causes of PCOS.
Excess weight is one of the chief drawbacks of PCOS. Losing weight through a diet low in carbs and appropriate exercise will help improve the condition. Increasing your physical activity will prevent resistance to insulin and keep diabetes at bay. Let us now take a look at the importance of managing insulin levels in the body.
Insulin – in the right quantities
Insulin guards the body against excess sugar in the blood. If the body is resistant to insulin, the pancreas has to work extra hard to produce additional insulin. This added supply of insulin could result in the ovaries producing extra quantities of the male hormone, testosterone. Testosterone interferes in the female menstrual cycle and obstructs ovulation.
Imbalance of Hormones
Hormones are those little chemical messengers and they have to be in the right balance all the time; the slightest of variation in the hormones can cause a lot of hormonally related conditions.
Hormones that can cause PCOS
Undue increase in LH (luteinizing hormone) can have an adverse effect on the ovaries
Abnormally low levels of SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) can bring about PCOS
In rare cases, the level of prolactin rises unusually
Science has yet to find an explanation as to why these hormones function erratically. Where exactly the problem arises, is it from the ovaries themselves, or from other endocrinal glands or from the area of the brain that governs the hormonal function.
Yet another school of thought places the cause of PCOS as genetic.
Where do I look for a clinically safe product?
Consider yourself fortunate to be living in the present times, when chemical imbalances have come under study. These studies have brought about results and solutions to the problems and ailments. A century ago infertility was dismissed as a curse from God; the woman was blamed and held in disdain. Science has progressed since then. Today science has advanced rapidly looking to nature for solutions and avoiding chemical additives.
