PCOS prevention

A woman’s health is probably more precarious as her systems have to handle various changes throughout life; most of the changes that happen in her body are brought on by hormones. Ironically most of her health issues are also related to hormones and hormonal imbalance causes a lot of problems.

One such condition that has the potential to play havoc with the hormone level and lead to a multitude of problems is POCS (polycystic ovary syndrome).

 A Brief Overview:

POCS affects a woman’s hormone levels.

A woman with POCS produces higher than normal amounts of male hormones making them skip periods and also making pregnancy a difficult thing.

It can also cause facial and body hair growth and in some cases baldness.

It can contribute to long-term health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

What Is PCOS ( Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)?

PCOS is a hormonal problem which usually affects women in their child-bearing years (15-44 approx.)

It affects the ovaries( reproductive organs that produce estrogen and progesterone-periods regulating hormones)

PCOS is a syndrome or a group of symptoms that affects the ovaries and ovulation, the three main features being:

  • Cysts in the ovaries
  • High levels of male hormones
  • Irregular or skipped periods

In this condition many small fluid filled sacs (cysts) grow in the ovaries hence the name polycystic.

The sacs are actually follicles containing an immature egg, which never matures thus no ovulation- lack of which alters estrogen, progesterone, FSH and LH levels.

The imbalance occurs when androgen (male hormones) levels are higher than progesterone and estrogen( female hormone), extra male hormones lead to disruption of menstrual cycle thus women with PCOS have fewer periods.

Why Do Some Women Develop PCOS?

The causes are not yet completely ascertained but doctors believe that higher levels of male hormones lead to PCOS as it prevents ovaries from producing hormones and making eggs normally.

Genes: Studies have shown that PCOS runs in families.

Insulin resistance: Extra insulin triggers ovaries to produce more male hormones.

Inflammation: Increased levels of inflammation are linked to increased androgen levels.
