What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disorder in women where hormonal imbalance occurs. This imbalance results in the formation of cysts in the ovaries. PCOS can be recognised by a clear set of symptoms, the most visible of which are irregular periods, delayed periods, absent menses, short and scanty periods (in rare cases heavy bleeding may occur), acne, hirsutism (abnormal growth of hair on the face and other parts of the body), difficulty in getting pregnant (due to anovulation), hairfall and weight gain. Hirsutism and acne result from excess production of the male hormone Androgen. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is one of the major causes of infertility in women. What causes PCOS is not yet known, but genes have a role to play. Therefore, a family history of PCOS and obesity would put a woman at a higher risk of acquiring the condition.
Homeopathic Medicines Can Cure PCOS
Homeopathic medicines are a safe mode of treatment for disorders like the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which affect women. These medicines are made from natural plant sources and are therefore, more effective. There are no side-effects at all. In PCOS, Homeopathic medicines correct the hormonal imbalance and neutralise its negative effects. With proper constitutional treatment, the cysts dissolve and the menstrual cycle gets regularized. Other complaints, including acne and hair growth on the face, are also taken care of under the guidance of a Homeopathic practitioner.
