Homeopathic Treatment for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome(PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common—and most misunderstood—hormonal conditions. Hormonal disruptions including elevated luteinizing hormone (LH), elevated testosterone ,elevated prolactin,abnormal cortisol levels, low progesterone, low estrogen, estrogen dominance, and insulin resistance (ranging from mild to severe) can all be present. Symptoms of PCOS may include acne, unwanted hair growth, ovarian cysts, fatigue, weight gain and trouble ovulating.
Symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome?
PCOS is a diagnosis given to group of symptoms. Different women with PCOS will experience different symptoms with different intensity. The most common symptoms of PCOS are:
- infrequent or irregular periods (oligomenorrhea);
- no periods at all (amenorrhea);
- excessive bleeding during your period (polymenorrhea);
- enlarged ovaries with multiple small painless cysts or follicles that form in the ovary;
- skin tags, teardrop-sized pieces of skin that can be as large as raisins and are typically found in the armpits or neck area (acrochordons);
- a disorder that causes darkening and thickening of the skin on the neck, groin, underarms or skin folds (acanthosis nigricans);
- thinning hair;
- excess hair all over the body, including the face (hirsutism);
- weight gain and obesity;
- anxiety or depression;
- increased blood sugar; and
- infertility (note that not all women diagnosed with PCOS will experience infertility and that appropriate measures should still be taken to avoid getting pregnant if you do not wish to)
What can I do if I have polycystic ovary syndrome?
