Yes, it probably can. PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is considered to be one of the commonest hormonal disorders among women of reproductive age that leads to infertility . Although medics are fond of calling this familiar disease in various names that include functional ovarian hyperandrogenism, Hyperandrogenic chronic anovulation, Ovarian dysmetabolic syndrome, Stein-Leventhal syndrome and many more, they are now confident that it has positive links with Type - II Diabetes along with elements of potential metabolic disorder. However, how this is connected with infertility remains rather vague.
Way back in 1935 when Stein and Leventhal first experimented with a group of women with amenorrhea (lack of menstrual period), hirsutism (unwanted hair growth), infertility and enlarged polycystic ovaries. They found that when the woman suffered from the ovarian cyst syndrome, the ovaries and the adrenal glands were producing more testosterone, and less estrogen than what is considered normal. According to their findings, this hormonal imbalance causes most of the symptoms that are manifested.
Furthermore, students of female reproductive science are aware of the fact that follicles of the ovary are the fundamental units of female reproductive biology. They are round in shape, and contain a single ovum or egg. Also, the standard ovarian volume in menstruating women is around 5 to 15 ml. In contrast, the volume of ovary in women affected with PCOS is much larger with a substantial, scarred capsule containing an abnormally high number of follicles that eventually turns into cysts, frustrating all chances of pregnancy.
Cysts can also cause problems even after the woman is pregnant, and in some cases, there have been miscarriages too because of this.
This is why cysts should never be neglected. The only way to solve the issue is through holistic remedies as it gives permanent results.
