Conditions

PCOS is a disorder affecting 5 percent and 10 percent of American women, where the ovaries are enlarged and contain fluid-filled sacs. This syndrome occurs in women that are of the reproductive age. Early treatment is important to prevent long-term problems, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Irregular periods.
  • No periods at all.
  • Hair growth on the face, skin or buttocks.
  • Unable to become pregnant.
  • Weight gain.
  • Oily skin or acne.
  • Losing a noticeable amount of hair from the head.
  • A heightened level of androgen (male hormones) in the body.

Causes of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

The direct cause of PCOS is currently unknown, however there are a few factors health professionals believe to affect PCOS. Factors such as:

  • Heredity.
  • Heightened insulin levels.
  • Low-grade inflammation which stimulates the production of androgens (male hormones) in the body.

Treatment of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Losing weight.
  • Medication (consult a doctor before taking).
  • Hormone Therapy (consult a doctor before taking).
  • Begin eating a balanced diet.
  • Exercise.
  • Smoking has been linked with production of androgen, quitting smoking would potentially prevent PCOS.

Preventing Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS cannot be prevented, however, addressing the illness in its early stages can prevent further problems down the road such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes.
