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

Updated on December 17, 2015

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.

      five months ago I constantly had to go to the bathroom. I thought it was because I gave up soft drinks and was only drinking water. One day I had a stomachache. I was in bed for 4 days. The doctor's appointment was for a Wednesday. I got sick and went to emergency room on a Monday. I was told my blood sugar level was 810 and I have diabetes. Since then, As the disease progressed all medication stopped working, i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to diabetes . I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the diabetes herbal remedy and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com

      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.

      cholesterol : 245 mg/dl

      triglyceride : 101 mg/dl

      LDL : 176 mg/dl

      HDL : 49 mg/dl

      VLDL : 20 mg/dl

      Liver function:

      Bilirubin : 0.8 mg/dl

      Direct Bilirubin : nil

      SGCT (AST): 40 U/L

      SGPT (ALT) : 46 U/L

      sex hormones

      testosterone : 58.74 ng/dl

      SHGB : 43.48 nmol/L

      free testosterone : .87 ng/dl

      bioavailable testosteron 22.15 ng/dl

      Hi

      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

      Thanks

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      Hi,

      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.

      A confused lady!

      Hi,

      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...

      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

      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.

      Hi,

      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. I have exercised regularly too ht is 5.8 and wt 66 to 68. Pls do let me know your opinion as I am a bit disturbed and trying to find out the root cause of this loss and want to prevent in future.

      Hello.

      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.
