Poly-Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)

Poly-Cystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is a complex heterogeneous disorder of unknown etiology. It affects 1 in 10 women. It is a condition in which patients have multiple cysts in their ovaries that occur due to disruption in the normal menstrual cycle. Ovaries get enlarged and produce excess amounts of androgen and estrogen. These hormones interfere with the growth and release of the eggs from the ovaries, leading to anovulatory cycles and irregular menstruation.

Causes of PCOD

High levels of androgen

A woman’s body contains a small level of male hormones known as androgens. In women with PCOS, the levels of male hormones increase, preventing the ovaries from producing eggs during the monthly menstrual cycle.

High levels of insulin

Insulin resistance, which may result from unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits, causes type 2 diabetes that leads to obesity. It also leads to high levels of insulin that interrupt the functions of other hormones and physiologies, leading to PCOS.

Signs and Symptoms of PCOD

Menstrual abnormalities like infrequent, irregular or absence of menstrual cycles.
Acne, hirsutism (male pattern hair growth on face and chest), hair fall from the scalp, or alopecia due to high levels of masculinizing hormones.
Metabolic disturbances lead to obesity, high cholesterol, hypothyroidism, etc.
Psychological disorders like depression and anxiety due to personal and societal stress.

Ayurvedic Approach to Treatment for  PCOS

According to Ayurveda, PCOS is primarily caused by an imbalance in the Kapha and Vata doshas. This imbalance disrupts the functioning of the reproductive system, leading to hormonal irregularities. Ayurveda emphasizes the need for holistic healing to restore the balance of these doshas and alleviate PCOS symptoms.
