While the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, doctors believe that hormonal imbalances and genetics play a role. Women are more likely to develop PCOS if their mother or sister also has the condition. Overproduction of the hormone androgen may be another contributing factor. Androgen is a male sex hormone that women’s bodies also produce. Women with PCOS often produce higher-than-normal levels of androgen. This can affect the development and release of eggs during ovulation. Excess insulin (a hormone that helps convert sugars and starches into energy) may cause high androgen levels.

In simple words first you must know your pelvic muscles. You need to contract them. To identify pelvic muscles first time. When your passing urine in the mid stream try to hold it by contracting your muscles. Once you find tat. Repeat the procedure of contracting your pelvic muscles. Do it 3-4 times. Hold for 5 sec relax for 5 sec then hold repeat the procedure. Do it when your relaxed and not when the bladder is full.

BHMS
Homeopath, Bangalore
DO?s: Diet: - Wheat products (wheat bread, wheat pasta) - Barley - Natural diuretic fruits - Raw fruits (especially apple, pear etc.) and vegetables - Oats, Corn, Butter, eggs, almonds, peanuts, pumpkin, beans, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, mushroom, onions, peppers, spinach, vegetable oil, soya beans, apricots, blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, figs, grapes, honeydew, lemon, tomato juice, kiwi fruit, pineapple, plum, raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, mango, cheese, radishes, olive oil, nuts, salmon fish, flaxseeds - Protein rich foods - High fiber rich food and Vit B rich food - Opt for lean meat. Avoid chicken though, as they may be injected with male hormone to increase the muscle bulk, which would trigger PCOD - Move to Soy products instead of milk, as milk has the tendency to increase the testosterone levels - Include 1-2 litres of water in your diet, which avoids water retention - Divide meals into small healthy 5-6 meals per day, instead of 3 heavy meals and never miss breakfast Exercise: - Sit ?ups, push ?ups - Skipping helps you to lessen binge eating, the release of serotonin and dopamine will keep your stress levels low. - Stress free methods such as Yoga, meditation, listening to music etc. DON?T?S: - All whites (Maida, white bread, pasta, etc.) - Junk or fast foods, cakes, cookies, sweets, chocolates, soft drinks and soda, desserts etc. - Avoid red meat, whole milk dairy, fried food, margarines - Reduce Sodium intake, by avoiding sauces, chips, salted nuts, canned soups - Quit smoking ?as it stimulates Androgen - Avoid alcohol Scope of Homoeopathy in PCOD: Homeopathic approach towards management of PCOD is constitutional, taking into account the presenting complaints along with physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person. It involves prescribing ?Constitutional Medicine?, which is also capable for working on the Ovaries and the entire Endocrine system. The treatment logic varies depending on the presence of any genetic predisposition, physical makeup (obesity), peculiarities of your menstrual, etc. In Homoeopathy, medicines are given to induce ovulation in a natural way, which improves and regularizes your menstrual cycle and also helps in the prevention or minimization of cyst formation.

This happens because of hormonal changes. As this has happened with you for the first time, there is no treatment required. If the problem persists for 3-4 months straight then it can be treated with 3 month course of medicines.

Yes irregular periods can certainly cause increased weight. But it is a vicious cycle. If weight is more, periods can become irregular. To lose weight 1. Start exercising, sorry there is no short cut to weight loss. Exercising is the best and the safest option. Exercise for 40 minutes daily. Walking or cycling or yoga or gym - pick what suits you. But practice it regularly 2. Diet - you need not starve. Eat a healthy diet. Include one bowl each of boiled vegetables, fresh fruits and steamed sprouts/pulses in your daily diet. Completely avoid white sugar (go for jaggery or honey instead) avoid junk food, deep fried food, artificial colors and flavors and maida 3. Warm water - this is a magic remedy for weight loss - have about 4 cups of warm water everyday 4. Green tea/herbal tea - they help you burn the fat. They also give you the much needed energy boost. Take two cups daily. 1 cup 40 minutes before breakfast and the other one 40 minutes before dinner.

Dear Ms. Lybrate-user, I suggest that you should consult a gynecologist for your irregular periods. It could be polycystic ovary syndrome. The dark colour of the skin on your neck and face could be what we call as acanthosis nigricans which is quite common in patients suffering from pcos, your weight gain may also be linked to the same. I hope this answers your query!

It is difficult to say why you should have pain in your stomach. It is way away from your genital area. Maybe some relaxation technique might help.

Hello, Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses – Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

There are many reasons for a pregnancy not to happen. Even if your cycles are regular, many a the egg (ovum) needed to become pregnant, does not form in the body. In such a case, even if you have regular sex, the sperms are released at each act of sex, but there is no ovum for it to fertilise. Since 1 years has passed since your marriage, it would be apt to consult a doctor who will ask you to do tests and guide you accordingly when to have sex and also prescribe medicines to make you have regular egg release in the body. All this is the least you can do to become pregnant.

It looks like allergy or fungal infection. Try soaking your foot for 5 min in luke warm water and potassium permanganate crystals, it it does not get better in 2-3 d, visit a dermatologist for a check up.

You are a high risk case. You need close supervision, good control of BP, serial USG & timely-prompt decision for early termination / delivery if required. Better consult nearby obstetrician, the earliest possible. You & your baby both are at risk.
