Some Symptoms of PCOS

Some Symptoms of PCOS
Marked, usually rapid weight gain, often without a change in food intake
Excess facial and body hair
Thinning scalp hair or hair loss
Severe acne, often cystic acne with pimples that become like boils
Irregular menstrual cycles, or no menses
Difficulty getting pregnant, or frequent miscarriages
Mood problems, such as anxiety, agitation, depression, and mood swings that are commonly triggered by excess male hormones like DHEA
Insomnia, with very restless sleep and/or difficulty falling asleep
What Causes PCOS?
No one is certain what causes PCOS, but there are many proposed explanations, and we will likely find multiple cause that produce the same metabolic syndrome disruption of normal hormonal production.
Genetic factors
Environmental factors, such as exposure to pesticides and other endocrine-disrupting chemicals
Autoimmune disorders — ovarian, adrenal, pancreatic, and thyroid
Excess insulin production related to obesity-induced insulin resistance
Excess intake of substances such as excitatory amino acids, found in many food additives like MSG, aspartame, glutamate, etc. that affect the pituitary regulation of the ovary cycles
Medications that increase prolactin, such as many antidepressants.

My advise
1....   PCOS affects a woman’s ovaries, the reproductive organs that produce estrogen and progesterone — hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. The ovaries also produce a small amount of male hormones called androgens.
2.... The ovaries release eggs to be fertilized by a man’s sperm. The release of an egg each month is called ovulation.
Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) control ovulation. FSH stimulates the ovary to produce a follicle — a sac that contains an egg — and then LH triggers the ovary to release a mature egg.
3... PCOS is a “syndrome,” or group of symptoms that affects the ovaries and ovulation. Its three main features are:  1.. cysts in the ovaries  2.. high levels of male hormones   and  3.. irregular or skipped periods
4...  In PCOS, many small, fluid-filled sacs grow inside the ovaries. The word “polycystic” means “many cysts.”   These sacs are actually follicles, each one containing an immature egg. The eggs never mature enough to trigger ovulation.
5...  The lack of ovulation alters levels of estrogen, progesterone, FSH, and LH. Estrogen and progesterone levels are lower than usual, while androgen levels are higher than usual.   Extra male hormones disrupt the menstrual cycle, so women with PCOS get fewer periods than usual.
6...  Doctors don’t know exactly what causes PCOS. They believe that high levels of male hormones prevent the ovaries from producing hormones and making eggs normally.   Genes, insulin resistance, and inflammation have all been linked to excess androgen production.
7...  Your healthy life style from your childhood can avoid PCOS
8...  I advise the parents of female child should teach healthy habits to their female child from her childhood.
