ovarian Syndrome is a mystery of women nowadays, since
it is giving lifetime female hormonal imbalance and
series of disorders. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is
often an incidental finding in most cases while probing
for other illnesses. Lack of periods or irregularity,
longing for a child, unwanted facial hair growth and
loss of hair gives signal to many patients to have thorough
check up. Most remain undiagnosed.
What causes it?
high levels of androgens secreted from ovary trigger
the problem. Androgens are also known as testosterone,
a male hormone is present in women, but in considerable
amount. When the ovaries develop tiny cysts, the cells
produce more testosterone. When it exceeds more than
the normal limit it alters the other female hormones,
thus changes in periods, problems in development of
ovum.Many women are infertile due to poly cystic ovarian
levels in women also cause acne, female pattern baldness
and excess hair growth in unwanted places. Hirsutism
and Female pattern Baldness are very common complaint.
Hirsutism is unwanted, excessive hair growth, clinically
encountered in many teen-aged girls. Male body hair
pattern also found excess hair on the face, between
the breasts, or on the lower abdomen and most frequently
on extremities. The hair apparatus of the female skin
is hypersensitive to even mild elevation of serum testosterone.
Female pattern baldness is similar to the androgenic
alopecia of males, but the hair loss can be diffuse
with no effect on hairline. The skin of the scalp converts
testosterone to another substance called dihydrotestosterone.
Hair follicles in areas that are destined to become
bald seem to be especially sensitive to DHT or otherwise
produces some antibodies, and shrink when exposed to
it. Follicles on the sides and back of the head are
Gain in weight is experienced some
patients. Some women do not show any extra fat on
their body, but physical observation reveals their
frame is masculine. In such case the feminity hormone
estrogen secretion is very less, breast development
also retarded. In some woman lack of sexual desire
also experienced No two women are affected by PCOS
in exactly the same way.
Why it happens?
imbalance, the insulin resistance amplifies tiny cyst
formation in the ovaries which induces more testosterone
secretion. The term "insulin resistance"
means that body is more resistant to the action of
insulin than normal. It means that inability to respond
properly to insulin, pancreas keeps pumping insulin,
which can causes bouts of high levels of testosterone.
Polycystic ovarian Syndrome woman and hypothyroidism
often come as a package deal in some woman. The recent
research studies speculate that female hormones may
be influencing the immune system to increase the risk
of autoimmune hypothyroidism. Genetic trait also observed
in some cases.
What are the symptoms?
can be mild or severe and can vary widely from woman
to woman. This is the reason why doctors miss the
diagnosis. Someone with polycystic ovarian disease
may have one or all of the following symptoms in varying

those who are suspected of having polycystic ovarian
disease blood chemistries are absolutely important.
As an initial step, baseline hormone studies are
drawn looking for evidence of increased androgen
production. It can be studied by serum testosterone
studies. Serum cortisone level also necessary
in hirsute women to rule out adrenal hyperplasia
. Evaluation of thyroid function is also important.
Check up for the Estradiol, Progesterone, FSH
and LH hormones gives picture of ovulation and
pituitary functions. Glucose tolerance test is
essential to rule out diabetes and then a fasting
blood sugar and insulin level is also measured.
Cholesterol study also gives the study of fat
on obese individuals.
How to treat?
Treatment of polycystic
ovarian disease is clinically challenging, because
the functional and proliferative disturbances only
focused pertaining the cellular mechanism, which is
a basic unit of our body. The functional disturbances
can be studied with hormonal assessment and proliferative
disturbances through imaging studies. So Patients
receive palliative chemical supplements to regulate
menstruation, induction for fertilisation and suppression

are adopted for proliferation. The treatment is not
