Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorder of reproductive age group and the leading cause of infertility in female. It includes chronic, non-ovulation, hyper-androgenism associated with normal or raised estradiol level, raised LH and low FSH level.

The prevalence of PCOS ranges from 2.2% to 2.6% in the age group between 18-45 years. It has been observed that incidence appears to be increased due to change in life style and stress.

The most common symptoms of PCOS are infrequent or no menses, infertility, hirsutism, obesity, acne and acanthosis.

The treatment of PCOS includes oral contraceptives to regulate the menstrual cycle, reduce male hormone level and Glycemic control medications.

We are treating PCOS cases after taking detailed case history of the patient and prescribe Homoeopathic medicine on the basis of both mental and physical symptoms. The number of psychological causes like shock, grief, mortification, disappointed love, anger and suppression of emotions affect psycho-neuro-hormonal axis leading to imbalance in pituitary and ovarian hormones resulting in pathological changes in the ovary. Every women suffering from PCOS presents with different set of symptoms so treatment plan for each women is individualised. Homoeopathic medicine act through same route leading to correction of pituitary and ovarian hormones resulting in complete resolution of cysts.

A clinical study conducted on 218 diagnosed PCOS cases in response to homoeopathic medicines was published in the Homoeopathic Heritage, Vol. 40, No. 12, March 2015 Issue.
