What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or Polycystic ovarian diseases (PCOD) is a common endocrine system disorder caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones among women of reproductive age.
The term ‘polycystic’ means ‘many cysts’, and PCOS gets its name because of the clusters of small, pearl-sized cysts in ovaries. These small, pearl-size cysts are fluid-filled bubbles (Called Follicles) containing eggs, which have not been released due to hormonal imbalance. Women suffering from PCOS suffer from irregular menstrual cycles, infertility problems.
It has become a common and treatable cause of infertility. Some reports claim that women who have PCOS are prone to anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, negative body image, and psychosexual dysfunction.
Signs & Symptoms of PCOS
The symptoms of PCOS vary from person to person. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but androgen levels that are higher than normal play an important role.
In some cases, the signs of PCOS could range from irregular periods, unusual hair growth; obesity, etc. in some cases whereas the long-term PCOS can also lead to cardiovascular problems, diabetes, and even endometrium cancer in later life, say reports.
Here are the common signs and symptoms of PCOS:
- Weight gain and difficulty in losing weight
- Irregular menses (usually delayed)

Developing a treatment plan/Lifestyle modification
The treatment for PCOS varies from woman to woman, depending on their symptoms. Changes in lifestyle, losing weight, following a healthy diet, and regular exercise may help you to reduce the risk of long-term complications, particularly in those women, who are overweight. This can help to regulate the menstrual cycle and lower the blood glucose levels.

When you consult your doctor, you can expect to discuss your overall physical and emotional health, your health behaviours, and beliefs. You will talk about all aspects of your life like work, home, family, and social situations to help you identify specific challenges you might face.
Although there is a scientific treatment for PCOS, Homeopathic treatment and medicines are very effective in treating this syndrome.
Now, let us have a brief on the role of Homeopathy in PCOS.
Role of Homeopathy in PCOS
Some studies report that homeopathy treatment can provide relief for irregular periods, menstrual cramps. The treatment helps to enhance the chances of fertility. Patient homeopathic treatment along with improved lifestyle and diet can help all aspects of this extremely common condition.
Without side effects, PCOS can be cured using Homeopathy medicines as they are very safe to use. The complete cure of PCOS is a time-consuming process and it cannot be expected in a few days. It requires complete observation regarding the change of symptoms in the patient and frequent clinical follow-ups.
On the other hand, homeopathy treatment majorly focuses on the root cause of your problem rather than suppressing symptoms and disease. In turn, this helps to improve the overall health and well-being of the patient.
