Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a condition caused by the imbalance of female sex hormones, estrogen and progesterone. PCOS is characterized by menstrual abnormalities, obesity, infertility, hirsutism, and overproduction of testosterone. Complications of PCOS include diabetes, endometrial cancer, sleep apnea, depression, anxiety, heart attack, breast cancer, high cholesterol, and hypertension. The condition is studied under the obstetrics & gynecology branch of science. Though there is no cure for PCOS, its symptoms can be managed. Lifestyle modifications such as weight loss, exercise, and diet are deemed to be the first-line treatment for PCOS. A healthy diet and exercise can help regulate menstrual cycle and also lower your blood glucose levels. For PCOS natural treatment, the following home remedies can be followed to manage the symptoms of the condition: cinnamon with hot water, ground flaxseeds in a glass of water, spearmint tea, raw apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, soaked fenugreek seeds with honey, and saw palmetto. Other medical treatments for PCOS include birth control pills such as ethinyl estradiol and medroxyprogesterone, to regulate menstruation, anti-androgen medicines such as spironolactone and leuprolide to reduce the hair growth, selective modulators of estrogen receptor (clomiphene citrate) that will help you ovulate, and hypoglycemic drugs such as metformin and insulin. If clomiphene citrate in combination with metformin does not induce ovulation, physician can recommend gonadotropin injections (including luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone medications). Some topical acne agents such as tretinoin topical cream (0.02–0.1%), benzoyl peroxide, erythromycin topical 2%, sodium sulfacetamide topical 10%, and hair removal agents such as eflornithine can be used to manage acnes and excess hair.
