Poly cystic ovarian syndrome PCOS Homeopathic Treatment

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome also known as PCOS can be an awfully exasperating condition. This article will provide an immense understanding of PCOS and how to reverse its underlying condition. It will motivate every woman to have an enhanced sense of optimism and assurance to improving their health. A woman's reproductive health is closely associated with her overall health.Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is an endocrine disorder portraying multiple cysts (fluid filled sacs) in the ovaries, as an outcome of abnormal hormone function that leads to excessive production of androgen (male hormone) by the ovaries. This influences a woman's hormonal levels, ovarian functions, menstrual cycle, ability to have children and other body systems.

These feelings were related to three symptoms commonly experienced by women with PCOS: 'excess' hair growth; irregular, absent or disrupted periods; and infertility. Smooth hairless bodies and faces, regular menstruation and the capacity to bear children were associated with femininity, and as a result of their symptoms women expressed feeling 'different' from other women and less 'feminine'. The results are discussed within a feminist framework and suggest that polycystic ovarian syndrome is a deeply stigmatising condition, 'a theft of womanhood', with far reaching implications for all women, whether or not they conform to 'feminine' norms.

PCOD - poly cystic ovarian disease - is the most common ovarian dysfunction and endocrine disorder which affects approximately 15-20 per cent of women in the reproductive age. The affected women often have signs and symptoms of elevated androgen levels, menstrual irregularity and weight gain, abnormal hair growth on the face or the body and no periods at all (amenorrhea). The syndrome has an initial onset in the peripubertal years and is progressive.
PCOD is a female hormonal imbalance where maturing eggs fail to be expelled from the ovary, creating an ovary filled with immature follicles. The cysts then contribute to the hormonal imbalance, which causes more cysts and enlarged ovaries. Polycystic ovary disease is characterized by anovulation (no formation of egg) irrespective of periods (regular or irregular or absent) and hyperandrogenism (elevated serum testosterone and androgen). Also women with PCOD who conceive have a higher rate of early foetal loss than women without PCOD.
PCOD women have fewer chances to conceive, compared to normal women who ovulate every month. Normal women get 12 chances in a year to conceive. But PCOD women hardly get 3-4 chances due to delayed periods.
Three important groups of hormones is oestrogens, androgens and progesterone are also produced in the ovary. These, in turn, are regulated by the release of two additional hormones follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland which is located at the base of the brain. These two 'reproductive' hormones influence the development of the follicle and the timing of ovulation.
For many couples, infertility can become the central issue of their lives. Infertility is generally a complex problem and may involve one or both partners who are trying to conceive. PCOD is most common female infertility cause which should be treated before marriage itself if menstrual irregularity is noticed.

PCOD and ACNE Deep Relationship


Uncontrolled bouts of acne are a result of severe hormonal upset in the body, at times the first symptom of PCOD in females.

PCOD can cause infertility, obesity besides acne and is either a precursor or is accompanied by Thyroid dysfunction.

An outbreak of a pimples is perceived as a cause of embarrassment and concern as it gives rise to skin damage. 
Coming to the cause of acne, it generally occurs due to excess oil (sebum) production. The oil on your skin combined with dead skin cells, blocks your skin pores, thereby promoting bacteria growth and causing acne breakouts.

PCOD is mostly diagnosed by persistent acne which fail to respond to usual allopathic medication like topical applications and antibiotics. The next logical step by allopaths is giving birth control pills.Most of the times, birth control pills cause a flare-up of the problem before it can be contained. This can result in your acne getting worse before getting better.

Although birth control pills might help to control acne, it normally aggravates the menstrual upset.

Homeopathic medication will improve not only the acne outbreak but also the PCOD.

PCOS Cause Obesity causes PCOS

The relationship between obesity and polycystic ovary syndrome may be exaggerated, likely because the women who actively seek care for the condition tend to be heavier than those identified through screening of the general population, researchers report.

Reproductive disturbances are more common in obese women regardless of the diagnosis of PCOS. Obese women are more likely to have menstrual irregularity and anvolatory infertility than normal-weight women.

Insulin resistance is a common finding in PCOS that is independent of obesity. Insulin-mediated glucose disposal, reflecting mainly insulin action on skeletal muscle is decreased by 35–40% in women with PCOS compared to weight comparable reproductively normal women.This defect is independent of but substantially worsened by obesity. In contrast, hepatic insulin resistance, characterized by both increased postabsorptive glucose production and reduced sensitivity to insulin mediated suppression of endogenous glucose production, is present only in obese women with PCOS compared to control women of comparable body weight. This synergistic deleterious effect of obesity and PCOS on endogenous glucose production may be an important factor in the pathogenesis of glucose intolerance.

Fasting insulin levels are increased in PCOS. Nonetheless, there are defects in insulin secretion that are independent of obesity.These abnormalities are more pronounced in women with PCOS who have a first-degree relative with type 2 diabetes. In PCOS, basal insulin secretion is increased, but insulin responses to glucose are inappropriately low.Under normal circumstances, the relation between insulin secretion and sensitivity is constant so that changes in insulin sensitivity are accompanied by reciprocal changes in insulin secretion that maintain normal glucose tolerance; this relationship is known as the “disposition index.” Both obese and nonobese women with PCOS have lower a disposition index compared to weight-matched reproductively normal women.Furthermore, disposition index is significantly lowered by PCOS as well as obesity. In summary, PCOS is associated with defects in insulin sensitivity and secretion that are further exacerbated by obesity.

Causes of PCOS:

The exact cause(s)of polycystic ovarian syndrome are not clear,It is likely to be the result of a number of both genetic (inherited) as well as environmental factors. We know now that the characteristic polycystic ovary emerges when a state ofanovulation persists for a length of time. Patients with PCOS have persistently elevated levels of androgens and estrogens, which set up a vicious cycle. Overactive adrenal glands can also produce excess androgens, and these may also contribute to PCOS.We do know certain Factors that can aggravate or increase the chances of having PCOS are:

  • Obesity can aggravate PCOS because fatty tissues are hormonally active and they produce estrogen, which disrupts ovulation
  • There is some evidence for an inherited (genetic) cause for PCOS, although no specific genetic mutation has been identified as the cause.
  • PCOS is also associated with insulin resistance, or an impaired ability to utilize insulin, and this abnormality is also likely related to the cause of PCOS.

The presence of small cysts in the ovaries is not specific for PCOS, since women who do not have PCOS may have ovarian cysts. Therefore the presence of cysts is not likely to be the cause of the symptoms of PCOS

Consequences of PCOD

Hyperinsulinemia in PCOD has also been associated with high blood pressure and increased clot formation and appears to be a major risk factor for the development of heart disease, stroke and type-II diabetes
Women with irregular cycles need to have other conditions ruled out, such as anorexia, stress or exercise-induced problems with the menstrual cycle, other hormonal problems such as thyroid disease or medication problems.
The general consequences of PCOD are:
Menstrual irregularities – Constant oestrogen production stimulates growth of the uterine lining which usually induces very heavy uterine bleeding. The bleeding episodes may occur after long gaps of time (oligomenorrhea) or, for some women, not at all (amenorrhea). Irregular periods are a nuisance and suggest some hormonal disorder or risk of endometrial thickening.
Impaired Fertility- Another consequence of incomplete follicular development is a lack of regular ovulation. Irregular ovulation usually means that pregnancy is more difficult to achieve. Similarly, if ovulation is not taking place, it is not possible to conceive.
whole body disorder obesity insulin resistance hunger menses thyroid
Miscarriage – While miscarriage seems an unfortunate chance event for most couples, it is clear that women with PCOD may be at increased risk of early foetal loss. The hormonal environment in PCOD may interfere with egg development within the follicle and disrupt embryo implantation within the uterus.
Hair and skin problems – Androgen (male hormone) is a byproduct of the ovaries. In PCOD, the production of androgen, such as testosterone, is excessive, which causes abnormally increased hair growth and contributes to acne formation. The assessment of excessive hair growth (or hirsutism) may be difficult.
Obesity – About 50 per cent of women with PCOD are obese. Obesity tends to enhance abnormal estrogen and androgen production in this disorder, which only magnifies the problems of irregular bleeding and excessive hair growth.
More important, the long-term effects of unopposed oestrogen place women with the syndrome at considerable risk for endometrial cancer or breast cancer.
Diagnosis of PCOD – The signs of PCOD are ovaries slightly enlarged and may contain 10 or more small cysts located at the periphery of the ovary, which have led to polycystic ovaries. The size of these cysts is generally less than 8 mm and can usually be detected by ultrasound examination. Pelvic and physical examination, ultra sound scanning, blood tests to measure hormone, insulin and cholesterol levels will also help. Height and weight will be noted along with any increase in facial or body hair or loss of scalp hair, acne and discoloration of the skin under the arms, breasts and in the groin. Elevated androgen levels or testosterone confirms the diagnosis.

Self – care measures for PCOS:

·         Exercise regularly.Regular exercise helps weight loss and also helps the body in reducing blood glucose levels. Aerobic activities such as walking, jogging or swimming are advised. With reduction of weight and reduction in insulin resistance, regular periods will mostly resume. It is not always possible to promise a woman who has achieved ideal body weight and who continues with exercise that she may have regular ovulation. 

·         Eat a healthy diet with lots of vegetables, nuts, beans and whole grains.

·         Cut down on your sugar, carbohydrate, salt intake.

·         Limit your saturated fats.

·         Avoid fruits high in sugar.

·         Avoid artificial additives in your foods.

·         If you are overweight, work on reducing your weight.

·         Women with PCOS should have their Blood Pressure, Glucose levels and Cholesterol levels checked regularly.

·         Eating a balanced diet low in carbohydrates and maintaining a healthy weight can help lessen the symptoms of PCOD.

Homeopathic Remedies(medicines) for PCOS

Besides some of the following ingredients, the product contains Dr Gurpreet Singh Makkar(punjab,India), Research based, highly effective medicines

Homeopathy, a practice that calls upon various herbal tinctures and concoctions, is often used to support ovarian health. Common homeopathic preparations for ovarian cysts include arsenicum, belladonna, and apis mellifica. Homeopathy is viewed as a complementary approach that is meant to work with the body’s natural biological mechanisms to support overall health, including the health of the ovaries.

Apis mellifica:- Few remedies cause as many ovarian symptoms as Apis. It has an active congestion of the right ovary going on to ovaritis, with soreness in the inguinal region, burning, stinging and tumefaction. Ovarian cysts in their incipiency have been arrested by this remedy; here one of the indicating features is numbness down the thigh. It has also proved useful in affections of the left ovary. Tightness of the chest may also be present, with the occurrence of a reflex cough and urging to urinate. Mercurius corrosivus. Hughes prefers this remedy in ovarian neuralgia. Peritoneal complications also indicate it. Bovista has also cured ovarian tumors.

Belladonna:- As this remedy is one particularly adapted to glandular growths it is especially useful in acute ovaritis, and more so if the peritoneum be involved. The pains are clutching and throbbing, worse on the right side, the slightest jar is painful, and the patient is extremely sensitive. The symptoms appear suddenly; flushed face and other Belladonna symptoms are present. Platinum. Ovaries sensitive, burning pains in them, bearing down, chronic ovarian irritation with sexual excitement. Much ovarian induration is present. Palladium. Swelling and induration of right ovary.

Burning pains from ovary up into abdomen and down into thighs, shooting pains from left ovary across the pubes, or up to the mammary gland. Staphisagria. Very useful in ovarian irritation in nervous, irritable women. Hypochondriacal moods.

Lachesis:- Pain in left ovary relieved by a discharge from the uterus; can bear nothing heavy on region. Hughes and Guernsey seem to think that Lachesis acts even more prominently on the right ovary; others believe the opposite, the tendency of affections being, however, to move from the left toward the right side. Suppuration and chronic enlargements of ovary may call for Lachesis. Zincum. Boring in the left ovary relieved by the flow, somewhat better from pressure; fidgety feet. Graphites. Swelling and induration of the left ovary; also pains in the right ovarian region with delayed scanty menses. Argentum metallicum. Bruised pain in left ovary and sensation as if ovary were growing large. Naja. Violent crampy pain in left ovary. Dr. Hughes valued it in obscure ovarian pains not inflammatory in nature.

Arsenicum:- Burning tensive pains in the ovaries, especially in the right. Ovaritis relieved by hot applications. Patient thirsty, irritable and restless. Colocynth. Ovarian colic; griping pains, relieved by bending double; stitching pains deep in right ovarian region. It is also a useful remedy,according to Southwick, in ovaritis of left ovary with colicky pains. A dropsical condition may be present. Hamamelis. Ovaritis and ovarian neuralgia. Ludlam praises this remedy in the sub-acute form of gonorrhoeal ovaritis; it allays the pain and averts the menstrual derangement. Ovaritis after a blow. There is agonizing soreness all over the abdomen. An external application of hot extract of Hamamelis acts marvelously in subduing the distress and pain consequent to ovaritis. Iodine. Congestion or dropsy of the right ovary. Dwindling of the mammae; dull, pressing, wedge-like pain, extending from right ovary to uterus like a plug, worse during menstruation. Thuja.
