If you don't know what PCOS is read into it? It can be painful at times and cause lots of problems. It's a hormone imbalance so yes your hair might be darker. The more you weigh the worst it can be and it's hard to lose weight when you have it. PCOS or PCOD is a complex condition, involving thyroid dysfunction, which affects ovarian function, insulin production, weight regulation and more.
In most cases of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), etiology is unclear etiology, and there is still not an obvious perceptive about its any link to the genetic background. Approximately half of the women with PCOS are failed to get insulin resistance and this is not included in the diagnostic criteria. Now researchers are trying to improve PCOS diagnosis and treatment methods to cover greater risks of infertility, endometrial cancer, disorders of sugar metabolism and cardiovascular diseases.
Today the term polycystic ovary syndrome is based on the description given by Stein and Leventhal, who first declared that women with polycystic ovaries are usually facing cycle disorders, bearded chin, infertility, hyperandrogenism, and obesity.
Various concepts of the pathogenesis of PCOS
- Mostly neuroendocrine disorder causing to increased the pulse rate and high amplitude frequency of LH are also noticed.
- Huge chances of failure of ovarian androgen biosynthesis.
- Boost up the activity of the opioid system and reduced the production of SHBG.
- Failure of insulin secretion leading to insulin resistance and hyperinsulinism.
- It may bring a change in cortisol metabolism leading to increased adrenal androgen production.
Pregnant women with PCOS are usually facing the following risks.
- More frequent spontaneous abortion (the risk is higher by 30 - 50%).
- High blood pressure in pregnancy
- Frequent abdominal pains with dizziness
- Preeclampsia (high blood pressure and protein loss in the urine)
- Gestational diabetes
- Appetite loss or increased hunger is also noticed in several cases.
- There may need of neonatal intensive care unit after the birth.
PCOD or PCOS treatment also include the control of the metabolism of diet and exercise. Reduction in body weight in overweight women is the chief healing measures. Metformin is a substance used for decreasing insulin resistance and its high levels. Metformin recovers the ovarian function and improves the effects of other drugs that are used to stimulate ovulation. In PCOS women, unwanted body hair is removed by ordinary cosmetic hair removal methods. It is also a proficient use of hormonal contraceptives, which both decreases the objectionable consequence of male hormones and help in regulates the menstrual cycle. If the traditional treatment does not make the grades, it is possible to use surgical methods.
