In India, Polycystic ovarian syndrome is one of the most common endocrine disorders affecting women. Reportedly, around 10 per cent of women in India are affected with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Women with PCOS have various symptoms which may be cosmetic; such as acne, facial hair and pigmentation, gynecological; such as irregular periods, infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss, or endocrinological; such as obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes.
In PCOS, ovulation does not occur regularly, which prevents the rise and fall of progesterone hormone which is responsible for causing a woman’s period. Instead, the uterine lining is not shed and is exposed to estrogen for a longer period of time causing it to grow much thicker than normal. This can cause heavy and erratic bleeding. However, this is not a true period because ovulation has not occurred. Over time, lack of exposure to progesterone may cause endometrial hyperplasia which in rare cases can lead to endometrial cancer. Taking the oral contraceptives (birth control pills) regulates the menstrual cycle by providing the progesterone that body needs, causing the uterine lining to be shed frequently and reducing the risk of endometrial hyperplasia.
In a nutshell, oral contraceptives (birth control pills) release hormones into the body to create a highly regular menstrual cycle without ovulation. They contain various combinations and strengths of the hormones estrogen and progestin. Since irregular periods are the most common symptom of PCOS, taking oral contraceptives (birth control pills) is a way to force the body into a regular cycle. As a result of this hormonal influence, using oral contraceptives (birth control pills) helps to regulate the menstrual cycle and reduce excessive hair growth and acne.
Oral contraceptive though, is not a definite treatment of PCOS. For most women the effect vanishes soon after the pill is stopped. There have been clinicians who have noticed that taking oral contraceptives can also lead to PCOS. (http://www.larabriden.com/treatment-for-4-types-of-pcos-treat-the-cause/)
But FUROCYST, a U.S. patented research-based innovative and clinically proven product, is effective in the management of PCOS. It is completely plant-based and is an advanced form of Ayurveda, merging nature and science. It regulates the LH/FSH ratio as reported in various studies conducted on PCOS patients. Because of a decreased level of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) relative to Luteinizing Hormone (LH), the ovarian granulosa cells cannot aromatize the androgens to estrogens, which leads to decreased estrogen levels and consequently leads to an ovulation. It also lowers testosterone production, thus normalizes symptoms of acne, irregular menstrual cycles & slows the growth of abnormal hair. It works by blocking the effects of “male hormones” such as testosterone and suppresses production of these hormones by the ovaries. As per the clinical evaluation conducted on patients, Furocyst is a completely safe product with no side effects.
