The diagnosis of PCOS in the early stages is very important, so that you can start the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome quickly. PCOS is characterized by two main facts – firstly irregular or scanty menstrual cycle, and secondly, increased levels of production of testosterone and androstenedione serum. PCOS patients present symptoms like hair loss, unwanted and thick growth of hair on the face, arms and legs and even the chest, and pain in the abdomen and the back. They also suffer from abnormal bleeding that could consist of very little bleeding or a heavy flow bleeding. PCOS patients also tend to gain weight very easily, and are also unable to conceive easily.
The ultrasound exam displays an enlarged ovary with a circle of follicles on the periphery of the ovary. Each follicle is usually the size of 2-8 millimeters.
Most conventional treatments only treat the symptoms. For example, ovarian drilling is recommended as the solution to infertility, most women who are non-smokers are supposed to respond to this treatment. In this treatment, the ovary is punctured at least 10-12 times. It has to be done by an experienced medical practitioner or it might lead to complete ovarian failure.
Another conventional treatment is surgery. But this does not guarantee a 100% cure for PCOS, and they come with side effects too. And surgery can actually destroy all chances of you becoming a mother again. So if your doctor is recommending a surgery, make sure you know all the side effects, risks and the after effects before taking a decision.
However a treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome without any risks or side effects is very much possible. The holistic method identifies the root causes of the problem and solves them, thus making sure that the treatment of polycystic ovarian syndrome is complete andpermanent.
