PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) - Causes & Treatment

DNB, DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Faridabad

Good morning! I am Dr. Indu Taneja working as Head of the Department of Gynae and Obstetrics in Fortis Escorts Hospital, Faridabad.

Today I will be talking about PCOS commonly known as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. This disease affects all age group women and mainly the young girls. Then it can affect the females of childbearing age and those of after the childbearing age also. The commonly affected females are the young girls.

This is caused mainly because of hormonal imbalance. This hormonal imbalance leads to the symptoms which are mainly irregular periods. Mostly, patient have delayed periods such that even women may not have periods for long months altogether. Then there is excessive weight gain. It can also lead to excessive abnormal hair growth on face and the chin and acne. On the top of it , there is hair loss from the scalp also. So this is all because of the hormonal imbalance. This hormonal imbalance later on can lead to infertility.

So the treatment is basically the change in lifestyle. This disease is mainly because lifestyle is changing nowadays. There is more of sitting work. The girls are not doing any extra activity. Most of the times, they are sitting and not doing any kind of exercise or exertion. They are just working on the laptop or maybe just studying and eating a lot of junk food or consuming a lot of cold drinks. This leads to excessive weight gain. This weight gain in turn leads to hormonal imbalance. So it becomes a vicious cycle.

The first and foremost important treatment in this becomes the change in lifestyle. Start doing any kind of exercise. Any kind of workout for at least 25 to 30 minutes. Cut short on junk food. No cold drinks, no aerated drinks. No dabba band things to be eaten. Exercise is the foremost important thing. Once they start reducing weight, automatically the hormonal imbalance changes and then they start responding. And after the lifestyle change, there is the symptomatic treatment. Treatment is to be given for irregular periods- maybe hormonal pills. Then if there is insulin imbalance then the patient can be given symptomatic treatment for that also. For excessive hair growth also. But to reduce this, to come back this, the most important is the change in lifestyle. I think for the young girls, the take-home message is that they should do some kind of exercise.

My wife is 31 years old and about 45 days back, she was diagnosed with DVT. She was taking Ixarola 20 mg since then. Last week we realized she was pregnant as well with child age 7-8 weeks. As per doctor conception happened just before DVT diagnosis. We have stopped taking Ixarola 20 mg now and have moved to Clexane injections. We are not sure now what to do, as for one month she has been taking the medicine and did that medicine have impacted the child in any way. Should we continue with pregnancy? Also as per doctor DVT chances increases with pregnancy and she will have to be on clexane injections twice daily till delivery. Please suggest. Thanks in advance.

Hello dear Lybrate user, hi Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly. You can continue pregnancy at this stage. What ever things happened to fetus can not be known at this point, go for sequential ultrasound to check any anomaly every month. Continue clexane as per the advise of your consultant Hope this clears your query. Wishing her fine pregnancy ahead. Welcome for any further assistance at my private URL https://www.Lybrate.com/gandhinagar/doctor/dr-bhagyesh-patel-general-surgeon Regards take care

Sex feelings can increase/decrease during pregnancy. These alterations are quite normal due to hormone fluctuations in body during pregnancy. Nothing to worry.

My mom is having swelling on her face from last week. How does she get relief from swelling?

My mom is having swelling on her face from last week. How does she get relief from swelling?
Hi lybrate-user 1) Have a healthy breakfast everyday: Our bodies fast overnight when we sleep and need nourishment as soon as we wake up. If you have a healthy breakfast, you will feel less hungry during the rest of the day. 2) Focus more on eating foods that give nourishment, not calories: Eating healthy and including physical exercise in your schedule will help you achieve your ideal weight. 3) Make sure your refrigerator always has some veggies and fruits: Whenever you feel hungry, it is advisable to snack on fruits and veggies. So, stock carrots, apples, strawberries, musk melons and more of such amazing food items that are healthy yet yummy. 4) Have unsweetened beverages not diet soda: Diet drinks make your sweet tooth crave for more and also add to your waistline. Instead, try green tea that is loaded with antioxidants. 5) Eat a healthy meal with the plate method: Let half your plate be filled with low or non starchy veggies. A quarter can have whole grain elements. The last portion of your plate can have proteins. 6) Reduce your intake of carbs: To be able to lose weight quickly, one needs to refrain from eating too many carbs. You must choose to have higher fiber, lower carb food items instead. 7) Use smaller lunch and dinner plates: Buy smaller plates! Yes, this tiny trick can train your mind into eating less quantity of food. 8) Relish non-healthy food, but in small portions: Totally denying yourself of things you love to eat can leave you feeling frustrated. Eat it in small portions once in a while. 9) Choose to double the veggies instead of potato or rice when eating out: Have more of other veggies, and less of potatoes. Most importantly, share your food with others, especially desserts! 10) Don’t stock up your refrigerator with tempting foods: Create an inspiring environment in your home by stocking it up with healthy foods. 11) Make it a team effort : Work towards losing weight with your family or friends. Motivate others and notice how it helps you too. 12) Be positive and kind to yourself : Compliment yourself, believe that you can do it, and the results will definitely show!

Why It's Bad To Use Your Phone Before Bed?

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Why It's Bad To Use Your Phone Before Bed?

For most people, the screen of a cell phone is the first thing they see in the morning and the last thing they see before going to bed. Nobody can deny the fact that living without a cell phone today is extremely difficult but must we be so glued to them? Staring into a phone or tablet screen, before going to sleep affects your sleep as well as impacts your health. Here's how:

  • It is harder to fall asleep - We feel sleepy when the brain releases a hormone called melatonin. This release is determined by the body's circadian rhythm which is controlled by light exposure. The blue light of a cell phone screen interferes with this rhythm and tells the brain not to secrete melatonin. This makes it harder to fall asleep even after you have switched off your phone.
  • It hampers the quality of your sleep - A direct effect of sleeping late is a reduced amount of sleep. On top, that, using a cell phone before going to bed also hampers the quality of your sleep. When an office email or a text message is the last thing you see before going to sleep, your brain cannot completely shut off. This makes you tense even in your sleep.
  • It lowers your attention span - When you wake up from a restless night's sleep, your productivity suffers. Not getting enough sleep is known to hamper your decision-making skills, impairs both long term and short term memory and make you distracted. This leads to unnecessary stress and anxiety.
  • It increases the risk of weight gain - The body is more likely to feel hungry when you don't have enough sleep. This is because sleep-deprived people have a lower metabolism. Thus using a cell phone before sleeping also increases your chances of snacking on something unhealthy to get through the day and in turn you put on weight.
  • It weakens your immune system - The body's immune system produces antibodies that fight infections while we are asleep. Depriving the body of the sleep it needs weakens the immune system by not giving it enough time to build its forces. Not only does this increase the risk of falling ill it also slows down recovery from illnesses.
  • It damages your skin - Sleeping late at night and not getting enough sleep can cause dark circles, puffy eyes and fine lines across the face. The blue light of a cell phone screen also tells the body to secrete cortisol which makes the skin less elastic and smooth.

Thus, even if you look at a phone screen for just five minutes every night before going to bed, the side effects last much longer and affect your mental and physical health as well as your looks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.
