Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome

This is the most common problem seen in today’s clinics especially in metropolitan cities. The high end lifestyles or food habits and lack of exercises will lower metabolism and creates hormonal irregularity. Many women end up putting on weight and irregular menstrual cycle and are unaware of the underneath disease.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. The name of the condition comes from the appearance of the ovaries in most, but not all, women with the disorder — enlarged and containing numerous small cysts located along the outer edge of each ovary(polycystic appearance).


Doctors are unsure of what causes PCOS, but information suggests there may be a genetic link, possible abnormal fetal development and inflammatory response contributing to the cause. PCOS is also negatively affected by diet, lifestyle and exposure to certain environmental toxins. PCOS directly impacts fertility, but has serious health implications as well, especially if left untreated.
