Facts on PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and Tips on Dealing With it

What is PCOS?

In very simple terms, PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a genetic problem with various hormonal manifestations. It presents with a rainbow of symptoms, including:

  • difficulty losing weight,
  • a tendency to gain weight around the waist,
  • irregular or sometimes grossly delayed periods,
  • excess facial hair,
  • acne,
  • difficulty in conceiving,
  • and/or recurrent miscarriages.

PCOS sufferers don't necessarily have all these symptoms or problems together. While some patients may have recurrent miscarriages, others have children easily but battle delayed periods and weight gain.

PCOS is the most common cause of menstrual irregularities in women aged 15 to 45 years. In women suffering from either infertility, recurrent miscarriage, or weight gain, PCOS is responsible for 50% of the problems.

This syndrome did not evolve recently; it has been there for years. Nevertheless, its incidence has increased, maybe because of our food habits, lifestyle changes, or rising environmental pollution. Our ability to diagnose this problem has also improved with the coming of transvaginal ultrasound (although ultrasound done with a full bladder may miss the diagnosis in most cases of PCOS).

The ultrasound expression of PCOS will remain from "womb to tomb," that is, from the time you are born till the time you die. PCOS may not show all its features in the initial stages. That is why some patients can have children (after having had regular periods until then), but then with an increase in weight start having delayed periods.

PCOS and Diabetes

Doctors say that women who have PCOS have a high risk of getting diabetes, and they suggest these women take medicine daily. It is true that women with PCOS are more susceptible to diabetes, because they have an increased risk of being glucose-intolerant. They can develop diabetes early in life, or develop diabetes when pregnant (known as gestational diabetes in medical terminology). They have a 50% chance of developing diabetes after the age of 40. Thus, these women should begin preventive measures like weight loss and diet modification at an early age.

Treatment of PCOS with Allopathy or Modern Medicine

Allopathy (modern medicine) treats PCOS as a hormonal imbalance. The main treatment includes HRT (hormone replacement therapy) where hormones are administered after evaluation of the patient. Diet and exercise may also be recommended. There is a growing belief that PCOS occurs due to a malfunction related to the hormone insulin, and so the doctor may prescribe diabetic drugs like metformin. Surgery is also an option for addressing infertiilty and hormone imbalance; it may involve puncturing follicles in the ovary or removing tissue from the ovary. However, all these treatments have their own aftereffects and you must evaluate all options by talking with your gynecologist and personally researching the choices on the net. This rule not only applies to allopathy but also to other systems of medicine, as, after all, it is your body.

So which one would you prefer for treating PCOS?

Natural or Ayurvedic Treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may give you good results in the short term, but is not recommended in the long run as it can cause other problems. Taking hormones depletes your endocrine system and puts it to sleep. Delivering a substance by artificial means that the body ought to be naturally releasing puts the body into a lazy mode.

Here is an alternative evaluation and treatment modality for PCOS.

1. Eat at regular intervals. For example, if you have breakfast, lunch, and dinner between 8 to 9, 12 to 2 and 8 to 9 respectively, see to it that you follow these timings, as the thyroid gland becomes trained to secrete juices at these times. Any variation puts pressure on the glands. Maintain your schedule even if you only gulp down a glass of milk.

2. Salt restriction is also important. Prepare food without salt. Put a helping on the plate, then add salt to taste, preferably saindhav salt (Himalayan crystal salt).

3. Have a papaya for breakfast or dinner at least two to three times a week until your cycles regularize. You should also eat porridge prepared from Ragi extract (nachini, millet, Eleusine coracana). Use crystal sugar (Khadisakhar, Mishri) to taste instead of ordinary sugar. Crystal sugar is very safe, though weight watchers may prefer sugar substitutes.

4. Avoid sleeping after lunch. Have a glass of buttermilk (prepared without salt).

5. Stay away from direct or indirect use of the following foods; brinjals (eggplant), peas, peanuts, cauliflower, seafood, pickles, curds (buttermilk is okay), green chilies, mustard,or bakery products (though pastries are okay).

Finally I am listing some simple herbal decoctions, which if taken over a period of two to three months will definitely help:

1. Buy Ashwagandha roots (Withania somnifera; entire about 150 grams) and Arjun bark (Terminalia arjuna; about 70 grams) from a local herb shop. Divide both of these into 30 equal parts. Now boil one part every morning in three cups of water (approximately 150 ml) and reduce to 1 cup. Filter this mixture and add 1 cup of cow's milk to it. Boil the mixture again over a low flame until milk remains. Add 2 cardamoms while boiling. Consume this milk in the early morning on an empty stomach. A little sugar can be added for taste. The remaining filtrate of Ashwagandha and Arjun can be used similarly in the evening. During summer months, Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus var. javanica) can be substituted for Ashwagandha.

2. After 30-35 days, if periods do not resume, use the following mixture for three days:

  • 10 grams Nagkeshar (Mesua ferra flower stamens),
  • 10 gms crystal sugar (Khadisakhar, Mishri)
  • 10 gms cow's ghee (clarified butter from cow).

These amounts are for one day. Mix together and consume with milk once a day. If the periods do not resume even after this medicine, do not worry. Keep taking the above medicine. Eventually they will come, along with proper ovulation.

The above simple remedy coupled with diet will definitely help and let you lead a normal menstrual life with kids and no infertility.

In case you feel you need to evaluate this option more, try and consult a good Ayurvedic physician. Having customized and specialized treatments will help you gain more. For example:

1. Generic preparations like Ashwagandharishta, Ashokarishta, Kumaryasava, Chandraprabha Vati, Pushyanug churna, Phal Ghrita, Raupya Bhasma, Vang Bhasma, Abrakh Bhasma, etc. may be recommended by your Ayurveda doctor. You can see how these medicines are prepared, along with their contents, at the National Library of Ayurveda Medicine.

2. Panchakarma techniques like Basti, Uttar Basti, Vaman, Virechana, Nasya can also be undertaken.

3. Certain yogic exercises like Simhasan, Vajrasan, Shalabhasan, and Sarvangasan are also helpful and may be coupled with the above medicines.

Ayurveda Says To Do This Check Before Trying to Conceive

Besides the above remedies, the simple Ayurveda method to check if the periods are normal and associated with proper hormonal function is to take a few drops of menstrual blood on a clean white cloth and wait for a few seconds. Now wash the cloth with plain warm water (no soap or detergents) and observe if the blood leaves a pickle-like stain on the cloth. According to Ayurveda, clean periods will not leave a stain on the cloth. Once you achieve that, you can then try for conception.

i am 18 year of age ,it has been years since i am having treatment regarding irregular periods, and now that i have discovered that it is pcos i don't know how to cure it, i have lot of hair on my face and a am continuosly gaining weight, and i am very depressed due to it, i don't get period for 5 -6 months , plz tell me the treatment regardin this, its making dificult for me to live

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Payal. Please don't wait and visit a good gynecologist in your area. As you mentioned that you are not having periods for around 5 to 6 months, that's an issue. Please do not get depressed, as this problem is happening with around 80% of women in the world. First step for you is to visit your doctor and do not feel ashamed, go ahead and meet a female doctor if you want. Yes a lot of hair on your face suggests PCOS but sometimes it can also be a thyroid hormone problem so I cannot prescribe you any treatment regarding this over here but your doctor can. Do not worry your gyne will provide some medicines like Diane or Yasmin for a 3 month course or so. These are basically contraceptive pills but after doing this course when your PCOS will come under control, you can visit a good ayurvedic physician and he or she can prescribe natural medicine to you which will help in the long term as PCOS is a longterm problem.

Some useful steps to help control PCO symptoms:

1. If you are gaining weight, start to lose weight, the best remedy for PCOS.

2. Modify your lifestyle. Do not sit idle at home just be active and do some work, join some aerobic class, swimming, yoga, anything anything active.

3. Avoid oily foods with lots of ghee or butter on it.

4. As your name suggests you are an Indian and might be you are into eating golgappas, Try to get rid of them whenever your dates are near.

5. Cut down on full cream milk and use toned mother dairy milk if possible.

I am telling if you will try all these steps under proper guidance and medicine, you will definitely not only control your PCOS symptoms and problem but you will conquer and overcome it.

PS: Always remember, do not ever never take any medication without a doctor's prescription because it can very very fatal. Always consult a doctor before taking them.

hmmm. Payal your matter is very serious. I would like to refer you to a Gold Medalist gynecologist in New Delhi. Her name is Sheila Mehra who sits at Moolchand Medcity Hospital, a very popular hospital over here. I am telling you she has got expertise in these types of cases. You can visit this link to get to know about her expertise.


A couple from Bareily, Uttar Pradesh had been referred to Dr. Sheila Mehra, a leading gynaecologist at Moolchand who specializes in high risk pregnancies. The case was challenging as the mother (Pallavi) had an incompetent cervix which had resulted in 5 prior abortions in the 3-5 month period. As a result of the work of the Moolchand team, her labor was delayed to the 25th week on this occasion.

Here is Sheila Mehra's contact no. and address.

Hi Paypal

It does sound like u have PCOS. The fact that u have hirutism(excess hair, eg facial, chest..etc) Also the weight gain. You may even notice your head hair has become lesser or finer.. (another symptom)

things like PCOS and strongly related to Diabetes, and are controlled by the same gene.

Best thing to do, is not to be on any contraception pills, eg Estelle, Diane35 or Yasmine, as for some people this increases the weight.

Its true, that you do need to lose weight, which is alot harder when you have PCOS. I few good Ayurvedic products are: Kanchanaar Guggul, Triphala and even Chanderprabha vati.

There is a Ayurvedic medicine called Hyponidd, and I have heard good reviews on posts about it.. but Im not too sure about it. I will be trying it very soon.

Hope this helps :)

Best of luck

Hi...you've written a nice article. I have been diagnosed with pcos recently and we started trying since last couple of months. I would like to know if between eating chapathis and rice which one should I control. We generally eat chapathis or rice and dal and some veggie or chicken curry. I want to really control my diet to help myself besides remaining active outdoors. Thank you.

Priya 7 years ago

Also, you mentioned above that one should not eat golgappa ? Which item of golgappa is not safe if I am trying to conceive or conceived. Thanks.

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 7 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

The diet for a woman having PCOS should be plain and simple but at the same time nutritious. Chappatis, rice, pulses, and chicken curry is fine but one should avoid red meat because it has more fat leading to weight gain which is a common problem for PCOS patients. One should also reduce the amount of ghee and oil while preparing food. As for golgappas, it is my own personal feeling as we have been taught by our late grandmother that woman eating golgappas have a tendency to delay their menses. I do not have any scientific evidence for this but then also I have observed that following advice of old people in our family is beneficial.

For patients with PCO who are trying to conceive, the first thing is to regularize their menses and the second important thing is to reduce weight and if not possible at least maintain their weight and should be active.

Sonali 7 years ago

Thanks for such an informative article. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, but I am underweight(51 kilos, 5ft 5 inches). I had two consecutive miscarriages over the period of one year, both were lost before 10 weeks. I have a 37 day cycle. I do not have any obvious symptoms of PCOS (recent hairloss, but this could also be because I am moved to a new country recently) and my ultrasounds show a dominant follicle.

Are there any ayurvedic remedies to prevent another miscarriage with my future pregnancies? Should I exercise regularly and maintain a fat free diet inspite of being underweight?

MY doctor has precribed metformin for the next 3 months, and suggested trying to conceive again. I am also taking folic acid and a supplement called QGold containing Coenzyme Q10 with Lycopene.

But honestly, I'd prefer taking ayurvedic medication without side effects.

I will appreciate your expert opinion on my case. Thanks a lot!

First of all, Sonali I am very sorry that I saw your question today. Secondly, I would like to let you know that I am not an expert in this field and I am not a doctor also but I have researched on PCOS and after that I came to some conclusion and that's why I have shared that information over here.

According to me in your situation, it would be really nice if you follow up with a very good women disease specialist or a prominent gynecologist in your area. It is a new case for me as I have never heard or met people who are underweight having PCOS. I doubt that there might be something else going on with PCOS or might be possible that it is not PCO.

Regarding the miscarriages, I would say that it is a common thing in women having PCO. The best thing is to first get it diagnosed what it is really and then follow proper treatment.

May God bless you and all will be well for you. Take care.

I was diagonsed for PCOD three yrs back and I have a strange symptom - my periods lasts for 25-30 days and stops for 4-5 days (specially after marriage). My docs suggests me to have on contraceptive which i tried for 4-5 months, then on metmorphin and clomid. I took this course 3-5 times. But all in vain. I also tried ayurvedic treatment but nothing goes right at this point in time. Right now I only wants to regularise my periods. I would be greatful to you, if you suggests something for my case.

Hi I am 20 year old South African and was diagnosed with Mythenia Gravis at the age of 11 and first started puberty at the age of 13. I have always had every heavy periods and extreme fatigue. 4 years ago I was put on the pill but continued to be extremely fatigued so my Doctor put me on a Adreprovera, to stop my periods so I could function in my every day life. I have recently stop the injections because my periods would not stop for 3 months and I became anemic. I have just been diagnosed with PCOS, and am very worried about HRT for the long term side effects such as: breast cancer, ovarian cancer etc. considering my Gran was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

I am on a lot of medication, ciclosporin, mestinon. I am worried that alternative medicines will effect my illness, due to the fact that I cant have magnesium, anti-oxidants, gluten, lactose and any natural plant such as arnica that enhances the immune system which worsens the symptoms of Mysthenia Gravis. I really hope that you can help me with an alternative way in treating my PCOS.

Kind regards

I admit that I do not have any expertise or knowledge on providing you any "alternative treatment source for myasthenia gravis" but when I googled today for the same, "alternative treatment for myasthenia gravis", I found around Results 1 - 10 of about 62,500 for alternative treatment for myasthenia gravis. (0.32 seconds) which can be helpful for you in determining an alternative treatment for your myasthenia gravis.

I would like to tell you that alternative or natural medicine takes time but it heals up from the root. I have now started researching for the same everywhere with my colleagues who have some knowledge about the same. In the meantime, you can research on your own by googling, "alternative treatment for myasthenia gravis".

Take care. God bless you.

My dilemma is to know who is the most experienced doctor who can operate either remove my uterus or operate on me in future any problems reoccur and also treat endometreosis and even can take care of the other kidney's.

So pls guide me through it..i'am ok with delhi also since my brother lives there.

Hi Vidya,

After going through you query, I am feeling really sorry for your state and the immense pain you are dealing with. First of all, please mention your age and let me know if you have had any surgery in the past. As fas as treating endometriosis, I think its a long way to go. If I were in your shoes, I would have opted for surgery with removal of uterus that means total abdominal hysterectomy but the most important thing in your case is that you cannot go for hysterecomy surgery or removal of uterus because after that you will not be able to give birth. Right now you are dealing with lack of fertilization and the problem that you are unable to conceive up until now as mentioned by you that you have been married for 4 years, so you have to go for IVF or intravenous fertilization and also treatment for endometriosis and PCOS at the same time.

If you are okay in Delhi as your brother lives here in Delhi, I would suggest you to contact Dr. Sheila Mehra who is a Senior Consultant Gynaecologist and Obstetrician in Moolchand Women's Hospital in Gynaecology and Obstetrics department. Here is Sheila Mehra's contact number and address: Lajpat Nagar III, New Delhi 110 024, IndiaT +91 11 4200 0000F +91 11 4200 0300 For consultations and appointments with our doctors:Program CoordinatorM +91 99589 97293E \n clinic@moolchandhealthcare.com

I am 31 years old and was diagnosed with PCOS in 2002.I have suffered 2 miscarriages 1 at 13 and a half weeks and one at 18 weeks.I have just discovered i am pregnant again and i am only 5 weeks at the moment.I am terrified it will happen again.I was just wondering if you knew of anything i could be doing to help prevent me from micarrying again.I understand there is nothing that will completely prevent a miscarriage but i would like to try to give myself and my baby a better chance.

Thank you so much.

I came across your blog, I would need a small help from you. I am suffering from PCOS,I tried researching a lot to find a book that is written by an Indian Doctor on PCOS which talks about what diet to take and having indian names to the diet plan.

Most diets found have mention of food items available in their country. I want you to help me, suggest someone who has written a good book after lot of research & has diet plans 2 follow.

Hi i have pcos . I have regular periods of every month. I have normal weight. I have lot of hair on my face and also many times my skin becomes darkening. Is there any relation with pcos to make skin becomes dark. If yes means any solution for maintaining normal skin.

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

I think there is no relation of PCOS to skin darkening as I have not heard about this up until know but talk to your gyne as she would be the best judge for that. If you want to maintain normal skin, I would recommend using natural herbal product without side effects like

Hi Soni ji..

Ur site is more inspiring.. i have PCOS, from past 4 months i m taking Herbal medicine, i m over weight too.. can we take honey instead of sugar, will it increase my weight more or keep constant..

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

No Swathi honey is natural and not processed like sugar so it will definitely not increase your weight but excess of everything is bad I can say everything as I have experienced so never go out of limits a teaspoon a day is enough. Best of luck Swathi. Herbal medicine like Ayurvedic medicines are the best as these are trusted for over 5000 years now.

Jackie, Phils 6 years ago

Im 35 yrs old, with pco, 230lbs, 5'8, and i have high blood pressure. Due to excessive bleeding i had dnc six times.Now, my OBGY wants to do it again. is there any other options i can take? is metformin for life? what are the side effects of provera? can i shift to natural medicine?

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

See Jackie, Phils, you have already undergone dilatation and curettage for six times, so I do not think that switching all over to natural medicine at this time will be highly beneficial. My wife took metformin for just three months and then she stopped. She was also suffering severe symptoms of PCOS but right now her PCO is in remission. I know it can flare up at any time and we need to start the course again. The best alternative to get rid of Metformin and Provera from your life is to start exercising, living a healthy and active lifestyle, following the advise and medicines of your gynecologist, reducing use of high fat containing foods from your diet. While following all these steps, you can visit a good naturopathic or natural medicine doctor in your area and start treatment. Naturopathic and allopathic treatment can go side by side but you have to see which natural medicine route you are going to take. Also, consult with both your doctors. Remember allopathic medicine is to control your problems and symptoms instantly for the time being but natural medicine is to wipe off your PCO right from its roots. It's a long and difficult route but if there is no pain, there is no gain.

Dear Soni, Im 28 & diagnosed with PCOD. Been married for 3 months now. I ddid have irregular menses before and i can relate to the pcod symptoms. However, im not sure if it is something i had before marriage or after. My doctor has put me on G-Reg Sr 1000, Clomid, Krimson & folacin for a period. However, I heard that Ayurvedic medicine like ASHOKARISHTA, is extremely helpful with this condtion. Is it advisable to take ayurvedic medicine while im on allopatic treatment? Also, Im advised to lose weight 20 kilos minimum (currently 90 Kilos). I have recently started practicing Yoga. Your review would be appreciated

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi Sweraj, practicing Yoga and decreasing weight with the help of regular exercise and walking is highly advised in cases with PCOD. You have heard it right that Ayurvedic medicines like Ashokarishta and others are really helpful in the treatment of PCOD side by side with ongoing allopathic medicines. You are on the right track but need to work a lot to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle and that is the most important course of natural treatment for PCO. In my upcoming hubs, I am and will be publishing more on ayurvedic medicines, herbal remedies, and benefits of living an active lifestyle. Watch out for those and reap the benefits. May God cure your problem and you get your menses regularized.

@energyflow, you need to follow the advice of your naturopathic doctor regarding combining Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine for treatment of PCOS. I have not heard about combing both of them at the same time. If you are doing this already, then also you need to check with your doctor.

I was going through your site.It is very useful.

I am 28 year old, and diagnised with PCOD.

I have irregular periods since 4-5 years. I have put on weight on my stomach part.

I got married 16 months back and am trying to get conceived.

I am diagnised with PCOD in December 2009 and started treatment.

I started getting periods after taking Deviry 10mg for 7 days.

Then, I was in below medication for 2 cycles. But I did nt get conceived.

1)Metformin 500mg morning and night.

2)Fertyl 100mg. third day after periods for 5 days.

3)GMH 150 IU injection on 8th day of period.

4)Injection HCG 5000IU on 13th day of period.

5)During this time I was under ultra sound scaning study on every alternate days.

After above treatment, my doctor suggested me to take below tablets. I have done this for last one cycle. But I haven't got conceived.

1)Metformin 500mg morning and night daily.

2)Letroz 5mg on 3rd day after my period for 5 days.

3)Susten 200 on 15th day of period for 15days.

I am also taking M-2tone 3ml daily.

Now, My doctor has suggested for IVF in next cycle.But, we are not interested in the IVF.

Please suggest, your openions on getting conceived without IVF.




soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Sana, to get conceived, the first and most important step is to regularize your periods and maintain your weight and for that, you have to go through each and every part of article where you will find numerous ways to do this. One more thing which I have not mentioned over nor any other person has ever mentioned online is that avoiding eating sour women favorite snacks like golgappas, ticki, bhalle papri, lemon dishes, etc. just 10 days before your period days help you regularize your periods. This is the thing which is not known to many and even the doctors do not agree with this as they say that there is no scientific reason for this but then also my wife including many of her friends have been able to control and regularize their previously irregular periods.

Try this this month Sana and let me know about what is the benefit you have got from avoiding sour items just 10 days prior to your period dates. Sharing your experience over here will help many other sisters of you all over the world who are suffering from this PCO problem.

It is possible to be born with PCOS?

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Zhanna, I am not sure about that that a girl is born with PCOS. How come it is possible? I think you have not read this article, read these lines first, "PCOS is the most common cause of menstrual irregularities in woman in the age group of 15 to 45 years" so this problem starts after girls reach puberty and start menstruating. I hope that helps.

hi i'm from pakistan, in 2008 june i was diagnosed with Pcos and my doctor suggested me primolutN for 5 days and then i was put on diane 35.It made my cycles ok and regular but i gained more than 7 kgs weight.

Now once again its been one month that my periods are absent.I donot want to use medicine because of the fear of weight gain.. please suggest me what should i do...!


soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Dear Alish, you can choose the natural route of treating PCOS. Yes it is true that up until the time you are under the effect of medicines you mentioned above, your periods will be okay but once you will leave those after two to three months, the periods will again get irregular. Why not buy evercare of Himalaya HealthCare. I have mentioned that above in this article right above the comment section. Take 10 ml of evecare liquid thrice a day for at least three months and you will definitely see the positive results. If syrup is not available, you can use evecare capsules according to the directions listed on the pack or you can also consult an ayurvedic doctor in your area.

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Yes Alish, I have heard a lot about parsley tea for inducing menstruation in cases of pcos, stress, and uterine fibroids. You can try that too. But it is beneficial for only inducing periods and not treating PCOS so for permanent treatment of pcos, you can buy evecare online from my article above it is not available in a local pharmacy in your area.

Hi Soni,

7 months back i had a problem of no periods for 2 months. When i consulted a doctor the ovary sonogram and thyroids have come out normal. BUt i was put on Krimson 35 for 6 months. BUt after 6 months when i stopped using the pills the problem recommenced. I have worked to reduced my weight as suggested by my Gyn.

However i am very skeptic about taking any kind of allopathic hormonal treatment or suppliment. I was wondering if i could use Ashokarishta instead of going to my gyn again. Also what should be the dosage if i were to use Ashokarishta.

Any suggestions would be a great help as this problem is causing a lot of anxiety.

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi friend, leave Ashokarishta for now and try already prepared and easy to use Ayurvedic Medicine Evecare Menstricare to regularize your delayed periods. You can buy this medicine online just go to the top of this page and you can buy it from Amazon store directly. Take the capsules for at least three months and you will feel the difference. Here in India, Evecare is available in syrup form also for fast relief of periods but I am doubtful that it is available in syrup form at Amazon or Ebay store so go ahead with the one I have mentioned right in the beginning of this article. Best of luck. I am anticipating to hear some good news from your after 2 to 3 months of taking this Ayurvedic medicine manufacture by Himalaya HealthCare, a major Ayurvedic medicine manufacturer in India.

First of all, I am not any doctor nimmi. I am just a regular person just like you. Have some knowledge about this disease due to its being in my family and just I am sharing some personal experience with all of you. Regarding your case, I am not sure that how it is possible to conceive after one tube removed. I don't have any expertise in this case. I am really sorry. Please consult an experienced gynecologist who can help you better. For losing your weight naturally, you can eat one half kg papaya a day and all will be fine. Papaya also helps in treating PCOS. Also, you can start using Evecare Menstricare by Himalaya Healthcare mentioned above. If not available in your local pharmacy, you can buy it online.

I have listed this ayurvedic medicine in the beginning of this article.

JJ 6 years ago


I was going through your site.It is very useful. I am 24 year old, and diagnosed with PCOD.

I have irregular periods since my puberty. I have put on weight on my stomach part very badly.

I got married 17 months back and am trying to get conceived.

I am diagnised with PCOD in January 2010 and started treatment.

I started getting periods after taking Diamet 850mg. Then, I had brown spotting, so my Doctor suggested Diane 35 for 3 months after that course then I was in below medication for 1 cycle. But I did not get conceived.

1)Diamet 850mg: night.

2)Siphene 50mg: 5 days(from 2nd day of period)

3)Duphaston:10 days(from 14th day of period) but I did a mistake of taking this tablet from 2nd day

4)Essvit F: All mornings

During this time I was suppose to have period but I have missed it for 9 days now. Home pregnancy test showed negative, Kindly suggest me if something has gone wrong??

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi JJ, you need to contact your gynecologist who gave you the medicine course for PCOD. It is not impossible to conceive with PCOD. You just need to control it and then give a try. Best of luck.

JJ 6 years ago

Thanks Soni for your reply... As said I contacted gynecologist she has asked me to wait until I get my periods or either Pregnancy.

I just have a clarification, I have bilateral PCOD problem will this affect my Pregnancy?? My mum had same issue and I was born to her after 4 years.Suggest me what to do?

soni2006 profile image

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Hi JJ, right now you just need to keep some patience and follow the advice of your gynecologist. As you have already mentioned that PCOD has been in your family history with your mom having this problem, so this will take some time but not so many years as your mom had because now we have more advanced treatment modalities than what our mothers had at their times. Keep up the spirit. Cheer up and wait for a healthy baby. I wish you good luck.

soni2006 6 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

@Hi, to regularize your periods, buy Evecare Menstricare from above widget and use it for three months to get rid of this problem permanently. It's a proven natural ayurvedic remedy from Himalaya HealthCare. No side effects. Only you will feel a little hot when taken in summers. That's it.

@Nam, if you can try the nagkeshar method I have mentioned above, then it is really good but sometimes people find it really hard to collect all the medicines and prepare the remedy and also quantity or quality matters a lot. You can also buy Menstricare Evecare mentioned on the top of this article and cure your periods and cure your PCOS. Menstricare Evecare is a RAAMBAAN (Lord Rama's Arrow) for the treatment of women reproductive disorders.

Thanks Soni .. I am in US and I have got Menstricare here. Also I have got all the ingredients here for nagkesar method. The quality is good and I am taking all of them in equal quantities to start with.

I am also suffering of PCOS + hirstuism,aged 26, height 5"5', current weight=70kg, and my periods were regular. But just some months before marriage they started getting late and 2 months after marriage I skipped my periods for the first time. I consulted a doc in Preet Vihar, Delhi and she advised me to take Glyciphage ( 3 times daily ), Asmita( 1 at night), Finast ( 1 daily) and Aldactone (1 daily). I continued this treatment for arnd 12-13 months and then due to pressure from family members against taking so many pills I discontinued it in end of March,2010. After that I have had 2 periods,April one occurred on time, May got delayed by 5 days, n june failed to happen. However, I just noted here in ur thread that my golgappa intake had increased incredibly during the last 2 months. I will control that. Also, I have moved to Bangalore, so I need to consult a doc there. I was wondering about a Ayurvedic doc in Bangalore for some personal consultation.

Hi Soni

I got married in October 2008 and did not conceive till date. In January I got diagnosed with PCOD and went to gynaecologist who put me on metformin, letrozole,productive F and started doing my follicular study with regural hormonal injections like HMG, FSH and HCG.My egg ruptured easily after every HCG shots but I could not conceive. I underwent two follicular studies but the result was not positive and stopped the treatment. I am 24 years of age, 5.3" in height and my weight is 69kgs. After the treatment my periods have regularize ( my last date of periods was 27 but this month they came on 22 i.e a bit early). What do you suggest, the treatment that I was taking is right or can I now conceive without the treatment or is there any other way out.

According to your case, I think you need to continue your regular hormone replacement meds from the doctor and do it for the required course and immediately after stopping the meds, start trying to conceive with both partners trying to ejaculate at the same time. I am sorry for your previous miscarriage but it happens with PCOD. Best of luck Archana.

Regarding Diane-35, most women experience some side effects like nausea, dizziness, and headaches with this medication. You can try to ask your doctor if she can give you Yasmin instead of Diane-35, as it is much more smoother than Diane and will not cause you any trouble.

Regarding your hormonal problems, if you are in Delhi you can consult Dr. Anju Virmani who is a Consultant Endocrinologist at Sunder Lal Jain Hospital, New Delhi. Her residence and clinic is at C 6/6477,Vasant Kunj, Delhi, 110070. She also sits at Max HealthCare in Saket.

@Deepika and Swati, in PCOS, you need to eat balanced and nutritious diet, do regular exercise, make lifestyle modifications, stop eating golgappas at the time of your cycles, start taking Himalaya Evecare for at least three months until your periods become regular.

Don't worry too much about the condition as worrying makes it worse. Relax and live a calm and stress free life as PCOS is related to hormonal imbalance and this imbalance can be controlled with relaxation and meditation. Yoga is best route to go.

I am 24 yrs old, unmarried and I have been diagonised with PCOS. I have been having regular periods, no weight gain. My symptoms were excessive acne and excessive hair loss.My dermatologist asked to get an Ultra sound done which confirmed PCO. She has now asked me to visit an endocrinologist. I am getting contrasting advises regarding visiting a endcrinologist or gynaecologist. Please advise asap as I need to visit during the weekend.

@Priya, you need to visit an endocrinologist or a hormone specialist. If you are in Delhi, you can visit Dr. Anju Virmani who resides at Vasant Kunj and sits at Max Hospital in Saket Delhi, in Sunder Lal Jain Hospital in Ashok Vihar, and in some hospital in Gujranwala. Best of luck.

@Neera, if you are in Delhi, you need to visit the same doctor I listed above. You have PCO and thyroid too that's need to be treated by an endocrinologist. She will also help you in conceiving a baby but you need to follow the advice of that doctor definitely.

Dr. Virmani is a consultant endocrinologist and sits at C6/6477,Vasant Kunj, Delhi, 110070



@Radhika, acne and pimple can occur due to PCOS. You need to get an ultrasound done of your ovaries.

Hi Nishi, first of all I am not a doctor. I am simple writer and human being just like you. I had some info and knowledge about PCOS and I am sharing here with all of you.

Regarding your case, if you are having irregular periods, you need to get an ultrasound done by your gynecologist so that she can confirm if you have PCO. The constant returning of pimples is an indication of this disease. Get it evaluated first.

Hi! Mam.

My wife is 28 yrs and 52kg with 5.3 feet height, she never had her periods without medicines, what ever doctors have suggested she and now we are following.

She has no other symptoms other than periods for PCOS, now its 1 yr we are married and we are trying to conceive from last 8 months. So she is not taking birth control pills(earlier taking from age of 17 for normal periods as suggested by doctors), so its neither period nor pregnant, now she is on metformin, folic acid and throxin.

Please suggest the way out, we want to be happy parents now....

Frea 6 years ago


I'm 25 years old, 5'2", 52 kg. I had an ultrasound a couple of months back and I was told I had PCOS. At the time, they said it wasn't very severe. However, I recently had another one and they said it is now severe. I haven't started Glucophage because one doctor told me to start Clomid directly because she said I get my periods on time, and my weight is in check, and there is no need for it. I have taken Clomid for one month, but it didn't work.

Another thing I must mention is that I have dysmennorhea. I get my periods on time, but when I do, it is so severe that I sometimes have to be taken to get an injection for the pain. What do u suggest I do. Should I take Glucophage to cure the PCOS and then take Clomid to try to conceive or just continue Clomid? I'm so confused!

Even though PCOS is not curable, there are alternates to make things manageable. better. Talk to a specialist (I highly talking to several), talk to family/friends, search the internet, etc.

Hi Soniji,

I am Jaya (26yrs old). I read your responses for various cases of PCOD. Its very informative and would appreciate you for your efforts. I would also like to share few things which can help people like me to overcome PCOD.

I am a PCOD patient since 9 yrs. Right from starting my periods were irregular. That's why i put on weight and loose after every three months. Maximum it has gone upto 9 months not having periods.I tried allopathy and prescribed to Krimson. I used it for 6 months, changed to a better diet (as loose weight helps in recovering) and exercise at least 3 days a week. This helped me but unfortunately i got skin allergy - a dark line/spots like (left portion of my body from left ring finger to...hand....arm...underarm...chest line.... waist....thigh, till knee. i stopped the medicine then my PCOD reoccurred. So i tried homeopathy in the year 2009...first 45 days i got my periods, then slowly it picked up...40 days...35 days...then after 6 months i stopped. (Though the doctor asked me to maintain the course for one complete year - my mistake and i regret). Now 6 months back i am married and now its been 7 months i got my periods. i don't want to delay or stop pregnancy and hence decided not to use any contraceptive pills...but however being a PCOD patient i should get rid of that first to conceive. So i am undergoing a homeopathy course again and this time i am going to take it seriously. Already 3 months gone and i took a scan before and recently. there is a slight change in my cysts condition, which i am happy about. I hope my problem gets solved. But most importantly, would emphasize on few thing for people like me:

1) Any medicine - (allopathy/Homeo/Ayurvedic) take it regularly, believe the treatment. Be in positive mind set. Mind cures a lot of body problems.

2) Be active, if not able to go to gym atleast 20 mins walk,and 5 mins normal body work outs and most importantly skipping should be part of your morning schedule.

3) Have a simple life style - do not take any pressure or stress. If your work involves stress and pressure please shift to something which or happy doing and little less pressure job (the world has enough options -we should search thats all). Enjoy every moment and keep your heart mind and subsequently body happy. As PCOD women have risk of Diabetics.

4) Meditation - atleast weekends try meditation. Sit in a corner and meditate. Feel positive about your problem and believe its getting cured. your body listens to your mind and it will do its best to support the treatment. there is something called cosmic energy/power which will do wonders.

5) Proper nutritious diet. You should not be over weight..that doesn't mean we should starve and loose weight or rather become under weight. some people are plump by default (like me) who can never be skinny like models. But as long as you are up to the BMI thats fine. so have required amount of food (fruits/vegetables/pulses/grains/sprouts/dates etc). try one each day. You need to eat healthy to have energy to fight the problem mentally and physically. Build up a strong and immune body. It will give a good base for your child (if you are planning for a kid).

6)Do not discuss and feel bad about your PCOD problem. The more you discuss the more you will mentally be depressed. there is nothing cannot be cured in today's world. 50% depend on medicines and 50% on your own actions.

7)DO not take any contraceptive pills...better not to avoid pregnancy as in PCOD the chances of conceiving reduces. So plan in advance and have kids. Those pills might further spoil your hormones. So PCOD due to hormonal imbalance..... due to PCOD again hormonal imbalance and further imbalance due to these pills...imagine what's happening to your body. So be prepared to have little happy healthy babies....

Care your health and be positive. Again i am emphasizing ..."MIND CAN BODY"......

I am getting cured...n hope you also (whoever is PCOD patient).

Soniji Correct me if i am wrong.

First I would like to say that I have also been diagnosed with pcos. Western medecine has a very different approach to it and I find the information on this site fascinating.

The first thing that my doctor told me is that insulin resistance makes it hard to loose any weight and so I was put on a limited carb diet. I have been watching my intake of rice and eating a lot of salads vegetables and fish and chicked I don't eat red meat.

I have beed doing a lot of walking and have even started running a little.

I was given birth control but do not want to use it because of all the negative side effects that come along with it.

So far so good.

I've recently had second miscarriage at 13 weeks due to amniotic fluid leak. I have PCOD right from the time I started my periods. Had tried ayurvedic however did not work for me since then I have always been on low dose hormonal tabs or contraceptive pills to get periods every month. I'm 29 yrs and married for 2 yrs.My problem is not conception I have undergone follicular study and concieved on my own though we did not know the first time and it ended as early at 6 wks,for the second time we had planned well and taking all the necessary medications lk progesterone supplement and weekly hcg injections however due to sheer unfortunate circumstances I lost the pregnancy. I would like to know if it was related to my condition of pcod also before trying again if you could recommend a good doc specialist in such cases in Mumbai. I would like to mention that though I know pcod leads to weight gain I have maintained constant weight for past 4 yrs except that I started gaining during pregnancy.

Hi, you recommended to take Menocare (Evecare) to cure PCOS

However there are no clinical trials to read on the website. There is no mention of side effects when taking MenoCare. MenoCare’s official website has a list of ingredients, but does not have any customer reviews.

Hello Sir,

Do you know any good doctor in Hyderabad.

I am fed up going to doctors without success.

I am 27 years old with PCOD & irregular periods, sometime with more then 3 months.

I had tried English medicines & Ayurveda medicines with not much success.

Now I am trying acupressure, however the irregular period problem is still there.

Do you know if Homeopathy would help ?

Thanks- Kiran

Hi All,

I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18, Now I am 24 and my cyst disappeared when I got my recent ultrasound done. I was put on medication took Krimson and Metformin for 6 months few years back but nothing worked. My main problem was weight gain and scanty periods.I consulted Art Of Living Ayurvedic Doctor and took the medicines. I am practising yoga from a long time, I do Suryanamaskar 10 cycles, Kapalbhatti, Anulom Vilom, few asanas. I exercise for 55 mins daily. I would suggest you all to exercise and do yoda and meditation. It can be CURED and in my case it got cured. Now I am not taking any medicines I just exercise and sleep early and get up early and meditate. If possible stop eating outside food, since I was student and stayed in hostel it was difficult for me to do that but I curbed it. Go for brisk walk for atleast 45 mins. Please practise yoga and if possible consult any Art of Living Ayurvedic doctor and continue taking those medicined for atleast 6 months. I am not endorsing anyone I am just telling you what I did.

Since taking hormonal pills never helped me nor metformin and I was only getting into depression I switched to Ayurveda. For 4 years I was frustated, as I used to be very lean before PCOS. I can really understand what you all are going through.

If they suggest you for Panchkarma go for it.Follow the doctor and you will see the results.

I wish evryone all the very best

I had PCOS and also had hydro-sulphinx, which is a dilated Fallopian tubes. I had lots of alopathic treatment and doctors advised to go for operation...but thanks to my yoga teacher (bhaswati)...after the yoga class, I've found a miraculous recovery. bhaswati provided me with some of very basic health and pcos tips and a diet suggestion. a healthy diet, no more cuts on my favourite food, walking and asanas...this is all i've been doing for last 3 months on regular basis...u won't believe, my Fallopian tubes are fine now,PCOS issue is gone and periods are so smooth that hardly i notice that it's there !!!....such a relief...!!! If anyone of u are in b'lore with painful periods and pcos issues, u can try 'srimoyi yoga' by bhaswati...it's really amazing...

Firstly i just had to join this website to compliment your interest and ability to answer almost ever troubled person. It is rare these days to find someone taking the time out to give helpful advice to others.

Secondly and very unfortunately for me , just two months back i found out i have polycystic ovaries that reveal multiple 10-12 cysts,06-08mm across in each ovary.There is mild stromal hyperplasia(i don't know what that means).I m 27years old.I have never in my life missed a period.(inspite of being on birthcontrol for six months.yasmin and then femilon) . I have never been over weight.never had a major problem with pimples or hair growth. So i don't have any symtoms of pco. even the doc was surprised and said it is very common these days.my husband and i have been trying to conceive for more than a year. my doctor has suggested metforim for three months. as she circled my insulin,serum(post-prandial)result which was 51.97.( but i noticed there is no biological reference range for this) Is this high?

I have my periods but i am not ovulating as i checked with the test. Will evecare from himalaya help me? I wish to go the ayurvedic way, can you please suggest the best ayurvedic doctor in delhi?

Please share your thoughts on this situation.

Thanking you.

soni2006 4 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Siri, do you know long-term hormone replacement therapy has been associated with breast cancer. I advise all women visiting this page to stop taking Diana, Yasmin, etc. Instead start Himalaya Evecare tonic which is an ayurvedic remedy for PCOS and also does not have any side effects. When you know that only medicine can help your PCOS then why not start taking a natural one instead of chemicals that will ruin your overall health. Believe me these HRTs are deadly.

@Priti, follow the same advice as given to Siri and others and also maintain your weight according to optimal BMI. Go to gym, walk for exercise, anything to maintain weight. This is the most important problem with PCO patients.

No Roopa don't stop Evecare it will not harm you. It has no side effects. You need to be on this Ayurvedic medicine at least for two years before this problem is treated from the root. Natural medicine takes time to heal. But I advise u to not stop Evecare a single day. Evecare will not harm you. Don't stop even if you are experiencing regular periods for months. Best of luck

soni2006 3 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

PCOS and weight gain are interrelated. Don't go through these liposuction and lap surgeries etc and instead take my humble advice and start taking two teaspoons of HImalaya Evecare syrup everyday for at lest two years. No side effects. Natural medicine. Works better than any allopathic HRT pills available in the maket.

Hi Soni,

I truly appreciate your interest in helping out people with your suggestions, which would mean a lot to people like me.

I am 28, my height is 5'2 & 65kilos..recently i got diagnosed with PCOD problem & have a small cyst in my uterus. I underwent a miscarriage last year, not sure about reason. Usually my periods get delayed by 1week or 10days, but last month i did not get my periods for over 2months...so my gynac prescribed me Chrominac-A tablet for 3months...I have been taking this tablet for a month now, do you think this medicine would work fast??? Is it some kind of contraceptive? During this medication is it safe to get conceived? Does it have any side effects? Also can this be treated as a vitamin tablet to strengthen my capacity to conceive? Looking forward to hearing from you.....thanks

soni2006 3 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

From your questions I reach to this conclusion:

You are overweight-the reason is PCOD.

Chrominac A tabs have been prescribed for strengthening Chrominac A is a comprehensive approach for management of PCOS (a heterogeneous disorder).

Overall it improves insulin sensitivity;combats elevated androgen levels;improves glucose uptake into cells and adipose tissue;skeletal muscles;improves pancreatic beta cell functioning; and also helps to loose extra body fat

Overall induces ovulation along with ovulation inducers.

Though it seems a good medicine but I would request you to use HImalaya Evecare syrup which is a natural medicine having Indian herbs really effective in management of PCOS but one important thing to be noted here is its long term treatment of almost 1 to 2 years depending on the severity of your PCOS. Yes it will cure PCOS but it takes time.

I have disagonised with PCOD problem and am taking Yasmin tablet from past 3 months. i was advised by doctor to take Yasmin for another 3 months along with g-reg-sr-1000.

I wanted to know effects of taking these.

soni2006 3 years ago from New Delhi, India Author

Drowsiness, nausea, irritation. Etc. Yasmin is a birth control pill and also a hormone replacement therapy. So stop this course and start HImalaya Evecare which will provide same benefits without side effects. Consult a natural practitioner for dosage or start taking the syrup according to the dosage recommended on the bottle.

My daughter is now aged 17 and weighs 60 kgs. Her height is 163 cms.

At the age of 13 she attained puberty and had normal periods for 2 years. Then it stopped suddenly. We went to gynec and she was diagnosed with PCOD. Her weight was around 70 kgs and then was 80 kgs last year and in the past one year she has reduced 20 kgs (by exercise 10 kgs and rest by diet only no time for exercise)

For the last 2 years she gets her periods only if she takes medicines otherwise no periods. She has acne, hair in her chin and in her stomach area. The cysts are multiple and in the size of 5 – 6mm.

Her blood sugar is 108 random and Serum insulin is 63. Her LH is 8.8 and FSH is 4.8

We have started on ayurveda medicines, the doctor gave the below medicines during our first visit to enable her get periods (she had her last periods in Nov’ 12 and till Feb’13 no periods)

stroulyasheva podi and asked to make kashyam at home, (i hope the name is correct) rajapravirtini vati ayaskriti for a week.

she got her periods only for half a day.. then it stopped so we went back to dr.

She then gave the medicated bitter ghee for 10 days and then asked to come for abhyangam and on saturday – 23rd feb’13 did vamanam she did not vomit much and hence said could be pitta body type and has given below medicines

rajapravirtini vati – 2 tabs morn and evening before food

tila kashayam – 15 ml before food

ayaskriti – 30 ml after food

Sowbhakya sunithi – 10 ml before food

dhanvantiri thilam – oil bath and apply in stomach area 10 min before bathing.

She got her periods on March 19th for 2 days only.

Only diet restriction is No sweets, curd, buttermilk, fruits and juices. She is still continuing these medicines and yet to get her periods.

I request you to please let me know if these are sufficient to cure PCOS or are there any much more effective ones.

Kindly let me know

First time when I visited a doctor before that, I had my periods after three months and the flow was for more than 15 days. Earlier too my periods were irregular since the onset of my menstruation but never was it so severe. Also I used to get mild acne only on my face and back. But when I turned 20 I got hair around my nipples and got lots of acne on my chest , back and face. Maybe because it was lack of good diet and exercise . Since the time I was diagnosed with PCOS, I am on birth control pills while taking 6 months of gap.

From the time I am taking BCP, my symptoms have aggravated whenever i go off the pill i.e increased weight, more acne everywhere, more mood swings , more anger and never got my periods normally, it is always induced.

While on pill, I have hair fall. I gained weight but not too much,I am 5 ft 1 inch tall and weigh 50.6 kg. I have darker skin on underarms too. Now I want treat myself naturally with ayurveda but I am confused about which category I come in, insulin resistant or non-insulin resistant.

I have been doing certain blood work and this is what i got in the first blood test in jan 2010

cholesterol : 245 mg/dl

triglyceride : 101 mg/dl

LDL : 176 mg/dl

HDL : 49 mg/dl

VLDL : 20 mg/dl

I have deleted several comments from above as those were posted by spammers. Please don't follow the advice of any spammers here using casts, spells etc for treating pcos. PCOS is a disorder and is treatable with Himalaya Evecare tonic which is available at all ayurvedic stores throughout the world. Please write me a reply here and I will surely help you in treating this. Everything else is in God's hands.

I have been following this blog for a while now and today i felt like i should share my story because i was a victim too. I had endometriosis for 18 years and i never thought i would ever get a cure due to the terrible symptoms i had and this made it impossible for me to get pregnant even after 12 years of marriage and it was a serious issue. I got to know about Dr. Aleta who treated someone and the person shared a story of how she got a cure and let her contact details, i contacted Dr. Aleta and she actually confirmed it and i decided to give a try too and use her herbal medicine that was how my burden ended completely. My son will be 2 this december and i am grateful to God and thankful to her for medicine too. If you have (Endometriosis, PCOS, Fibroid, Ovarian cyst, Ectopic Pregnancy or any infertility issues) just reach her on (aletedwin @ gmail. com) she has professional advise and a cure too.
