Symptoms of PCOS
Posted on 3rd September 2015
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.... Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.
2... The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with weight loss may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
3.... Signs and symptoms of PCOS often develop around the time of the first menstrual period during puberty. Sometimes PCOS develops later, for example, in response to substantial weight gain.
Signs and symptoms of PCOS vary. A diagnosis of PCOS is made when you experience at least two of these signs:
a..... Irregular periods. Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles are the most common sign of PCOS. For example, you might have fewer than nine periods a year, more than 35 days between periods and abnormally heavy periods.
b..... Excess androgen. Elevated levels of male hormone may result in physical signs, such as excess facial and body hair (hirsutism), and occasionally severe acne and male-pattern baldness.
c..... Polycystic ovaries. Your ovaries might be enlarged and contain follicles that surround the eggs. As a result, the ovaries might fail to function regularly.
4... The woman who follows healthy life style and healthy food will not face this problem.
So I advise every woman to follow healthy food and healthy life style.
