Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a condition that causes irregular menstrual periods because monthly ovulation is not occurring and levels of androgens (male hormones) in women are elevated. The condition occurs in about 5 to 10 percent of women. The elevated androgen levels can sometimes cause excessive facial hair growth, acne, and/or male-pattern scalp hair thinning. Most, but not all, women with pcos are overweight or obese, and they are at higher than average risk of developing diabetes and obstructive sleep apnea. For women with pcos who want to become pregnant, fertility pills or injections are often needed to help women ovulate.
Although pcos is not completely reversible, there are a number of treatments that can reduce or minimize bothersome symptoms. Most women with pcos are able to lead a normal life without significant complications.
Common signs and symptoms
Irregular menstrual periods menstrual disorders can include absent periods, periods that occur infrequently or too frequently, heavy periods, or unpredictable periods.
Infertility pcos is one of the most common causes of female infertility.
Obesity up to 80% of women with pcos are obese.
Excess hair growth on the face, chest, abdomen, or upper thighs this condition, called hirsutism, affects more than 70% of women with pcos.
Severe acne or acne that occurs after adolescence and does not respond to usual treatments
Patches of thickened, velvety, darkened skin called acanthosis nigricans
Multiple small cysts on the ovary
Are treatments available for women with pcos?
A variety of treatments are available to address the problems of pcos. Treatment is tailored to each woman according to symptoms, other health problems, and whether she wants to become pregnant.
Is there a cure?
Medical treatments aim to manage and reduce the symptoms or consequences of having pcos.
Medication alone has not been shown to be any better than healthy lifestyle changes (weight loss and exercise). Many women with pcos successfully manage their symptoms and long-term health risks without medical intervention.
They do this by eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy lifestyle
Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a condition which can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, fertility, hormones and aspects of her appearance but with proper medical care she can lead a healthy lifestyle.
Hello, friends, I am Dr Rakhi Gupta, I am senior consultant gynaecology and obstetrician I am here to talk about female diseases.
So regarding female diseases, we have a very complicated biological system meant for reproduction, masturbation, lactation and so many other things. So I will just give you a brief about female anatomy. The female anatomy comprises of reproductive organs which consists of vagina, cervix area, uterus, tubes and the ovaries. Different diseases of different organs cause different problems for example the ovaries very commonly we are saying Polycystic ovarian disease is which leads to infertility and other problems. Then there is ovarian tumors and infection. Similarly the tubes tube may be involved in various infections, the blockage of tube may also lead to the problems of infertility. Ovaries are the place as you know the egg is formed and here it is mainly responsible for the reproduction and menstrual cycle. It may be affected because of various diseases which is Polycystic ovarian disease or PCOD infections, inflammations and tumors. The tube may be involved in infections or may be blocked which may lead to infertility again. Now uterus is the place where womb is where foetus is carried. It may be affected by different things such as infection, inflammation, different actions from fibroids, tumour. And there may be problem related to different kind of vaginal discharges. There may be excessive bleeding from vagina and similar kind of problems.
Furthermore there is a cervix which is the main area which is mouth of the uterus. It is the main part of the uterus which bears the brunt during the intercourse so here it is prone to infections or cervical carcinoma which is second most commonest cancer after the breast cancer. So we have to know what are the symptoms for which we have to consult a doctor. Any problem in cases of Mensuration, irregularities, severe pain, too heavy cycles, too frequent cycles have to be consulted. Apart from that there may be abnormal vaginal discharge, there may be itching, there may be blood mixed discharge and so many other things. In case of constant abdominal pain, back ache, one must discuss the doctors.
So in case of any such thing it is always better rather than suffering we must consult.
So in case of any such problem I am always available to all of you. For such kind of things you may consult me through lybrate website. You may take appointment and see me accordingly.

It is important for you to know how pregnancy affects your thyroid gland. The thyroid hormone plays an important role during pregnancy in the development of the baby and also regarding the health of the mother. If you suffer from thyroid problems during pregnancy, you should take medicines and certain thyroid function tests.
How pregnancy affects normal thyroid function?
The pregnancy hormones known as human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG and estrogen lead to increased thyroid hormone levels in your blood. The hCG made by the placenta stimulates the thyroid to produce excessive hormones. Increased estrogen leads to higher levels of the thyroxine binding globulin, which transports the thyroid hormone in the blood.
Because of these normal hormonal changes, thyroid function tests are difficult to perceive during pregnancy. The thyroid hormone is very important for the normal development of a baby’s nervous system and brain. During the first trimester of pregnancy, the foetus depends on the supply of thyroid from the mother via the placenta.
In healthy women, the thyroid enlarges during pregnancy. An enlarged thyroid can indicate a thyroid disease, which should be diagnosed immediately. Thyroid problems are difficult to diagnose during pregnancy because of the increased hormone levels, increased thyroid size, fatigue and other factors.
Hyperthyroidism in pregnancy
Hyperthyroidism may occur in pregnancy because of Graves’ disease where enough thyroid hormones are not produced. Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the cells and organs of the body instead of fighting bacteria or viruses. With Graves’ disease, an antibody is released by the immune system called the thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin or TSI. This causes the thyroid gland to produce excess thyroid hormone. In many cases, the antibody is also associated with eye problems like bulging, irritation and puffiness. Graves’ disease commonly appears during pregnancy, but women with this disease from before may actually observe improvements in the symptoms during the second and third pregnancy trimesters. The remission or the disappearance of the symptoms of Graves’ disease may occur due to the general suppression of the immune system, which occurs during early pregnancy. The disease is likely to recur and worsen in a few months after the delivery. It is important for pregnant women with Graves’ disease to be monitored carefully.
Hypothyroidism during pregnancy may lead to a developmental delay in the child. Sometimes, hormone therapy is given to women who are at the borderline stage in thyroid function during pregnancy or just before pregnancy. The treatment of the condition aims at maintaining a proper and balanced thyroid hormone level in the body.
