PCOS affects a woman's
ability to conceive at various levels. Read this article
to find out how it does so and what needs to be done to
curb the damages.
or the ovarian cyst syndrome affects a woman's
fertility, menstrual cycle, hormones, insulin
production, heart, blood vessels and even personal
appearance. How the damage is done is described briefly
in the following lines.
To start with, the follicles
(small sac-like units) in a woman's ovary are supposed
to hold the ovum or the egg till it matures and releases
in time so that it can travel through the fallopian
tubes for fertilization. In the process, the follicle
dies a normal death or just disintegrates.
However, with PCOS, there is
a departure from this normal procedure. Here, the ovary
becomes incapable of producing enough hormones to fully
mature the egg with the result that it never gets
released. The follicle turns into a cyst.
In due course of time, the
ovary becomes full of such cysts that prevent it from
functioning normally. The hormone called progesterone is
not produced and ovulation is stopped. And sans
ovulation, pregnancy obviously is a far cry.
And the problem snow balls with
each passing day. On the one hand, being deprived of the
hormone progesterone, the woman's menstrual cycle goes
haywire while on the other, the cysts start producing
male hormones (androgens) that triggers a chain of
reactions, which give rise to acne, excessive unwanted
hair growth, weight gain
and added ovulation
The unfortunate part is that,
women of childbearing age who are deeply anxious to get
pregnant are mostly affected by PCOS that render them
infertile for an indefinite time.
However, the problem can be solved
if a holistic approach is taken to resolve the issue. A
permanent cure for ovarian cyst is not possible through
conventional medications and also through natural
