Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common problem among teenagers and women of child bearing age. It is one of the most common metabolic/ hormonal disorders in women. Due to hormonal imbalance women having PCOS present with weight gain, irregular or absent menses, excessive facial or body hair, acne and often infertility. It is diagnosed by hormone level testing and ultrasound which usually reveals multiple small cysts in the ovaries. Women with PCOS have a higher risk of developing high blood pressure, diabetes and heart attack.
The conventional treatment for PCOS/PCOD is usually symptomatic, that is addressing each symptom separately. Homeopathy offers a more holistic approach in dealing with the condition. It is very upsetting to a woman who wants to get pregnant to not be able to conceive. Also the cosmetic symptoms like obesity, excess body hair, acne etc tend to affect the self esteem of many women with this condition. There is a greater rate of depression, mood swings and fatigue among those who have PCOS.
