Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can be stated as a condition affecting the normal level of hormones in females. In this condition, there is an increased production of male hormones inside the female body. The imbalance in hormonal level causes the irregularities in menstrual cycle and also skips the menstrual periods. The difficulty in pregnancy can also be seen in females with PCOS.

Due to excess production of male hormones, the patient faces hair growth on the face and body. Baldness is also a complication associated with PCOS.

The women lying between the age group of 15 and 44 years (childbearing years) develop PCOS.

PCOS mainly affects the ovaries of the women, along with the reproductive organs necessary to secrete progesterone and estrogen hormones which regulates the menstrual cycle. The ovaries also begin to produce a small amount of androgen (male hormones).

The ovaries secrete eggs which are further fertilized by male’s sperm. The process of releasing an egg every month is termed as ovulation. Luteinizing hormone (LH) and Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) are generated by the pituitary gland and regulates the process of ovulation.

PCOS Symptoms

Basically PCOS can be considered as a “syndrome” or a collection of symptoms affecting the ovulation and the ovaries. Women begin to observe symptoms of PCOS during their first period after PCOS. The most common symptoms of PCOS include:

  • Irregular periods: Absence of ovulation stops the lining of the uterus from shedding every month. A large portion of diseased females get only seven periods per year or sometimes less of seven also.
  • Intense bleeding: The uterus lining builds up from a longer time periods, so the bleeding during periods is heavier than normal.
  • Hair growth: Over 80 percent of women suffering from PCOS observe growth on their chest, belly, back and face.
  • Weight increase: Up to 70 percent women having this condition gain excess body weight and become obese.
  • Acne & pimples: Developing of acne and pimples on the face, shoulders and the chest is seen in PCOS.
  • Severe headache
