PCOS, also known as the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition that affects women of reproductive age (usually between 12-45 years). True to its name, PCOS is a hormonal disorder characterized by the formation of cysts in the ovary (one or both the ovaries). Androgen, the male sex hormone is produced in small amounts by the ovary. In PCOS, there is an increased production of androgens. The levels of estrogen and progesterone (female sex hormones) also undergo alteration. All these hormonal imbalance affects the functioning of the ovary as well as the ovulation process (the eggs either don't mature or are not released from the ovary).
PCOS and Hair Loss
In the case of PCOS, in addition to the menstrual and fertility problem, many females also suffer from severe hair loss.
There are three phases in a hair growth cycle-
- Anagen, a phase where active hair growth takes place.
- Catagen, a phase indicative of the transitional growth of hair.
- Telogen or the resting phase characterized by shedding of hair.
In PCOS, there is an increased production of androgen or testosterone. The testosterone then gets converted to another hormone called the Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The DHT thus formed binds itself to the hair follicles. As a result of this, the hair follicles abruptly enters into the resting phase, characterized by hair loss. The DHT when it binds to the hair follicles is also known to affect the ability of the hair follicles to absorb the essential nutrients.The PCOS left untreated, this process gets repeated in each hair growth cycle with increased hair loss and hair thinning. The hair regrowth and regeneration also slows down, a condition termed as Androgenic Alopecia.
The PCOS also triggers an insulin resistance. As per a study by the University of Oulu in Finland, incidences of alopecia is higher in women with insulin resistance, resulting in hair loss.
Dietary Recommendation To Deal With PCOS-related Hair Loss
In PCOS, the DHT hormone binds to the hair follicle resulting in the hair loss. In addition to the medications and maintaining a healthy body weight, a proper diet can go a long way to reverse the damage, thereby controlling the hair loss. However, one needs to have patience as you cannot expect the diet to produce miraculous results within a day.
- Enrich your diet with green leafy vegetables. High fiber vegetables can help to deal with insulin resistance to a great extent.
- Lean proteins such as tofu, chicken, are healthy options.
- Foods with low glycemic index (such as non-starchy vegetables, quite a few fruits, lentils, peas, legumes, barley, to name a few) work wonders in the case of PCOS and the associated symptoms. It also helps to deal with insulin resistance and high glucose levels, one of the factors responsible for hair loss.
- The unhealthy foods options that should be avoided at all cost, include highly processed foods such as pastries, white bread, sugar, white potatoes.
- Avoid foods rich in simple sugars or those with a high glycemic value.

Itchy Penis: Was It the Lubricant or the Latex?
Sometimes a man suddenly finds himself with an itchy penis without any idea of what is causing it. Other times, he has a fairly good idea. For example, if he develops a really itchy penis after using a condom, and this happens consistently, it's reasonable to assume that this particular penis care issue is related to the protection he is using. But before he goes shopping for a new kind of condom to use, it's worth asking, "What is really causing this itchy penis? Is it the latex? Or is it the lubricant?"
A good question
It's a question well worth asking. Many condoms come pre-lubricated now, and many guys who use unlubricated latex barriers will add some lubricant to make things proceed more smoothly. Heck, some guys even add lubricant to a condom that already is pre-lubed. So if a guy has an allergic reaction after using the condom, it may be due to a latex allergy, or it may be due to the lubricant involved.
Some people seem incredulous that a guy could be allergic to latex or to lubricants. But the fact is that it's possible to develop an allergy to just about anything - and quite a few people do have reactions to latex and/or lubricant.
In terms of the penis, sometimes it manifests as itchiness, but it can also have visible symptoms as well - most often a reddening of the penis or the appearance of rashes or bumps. Sometimes it can cause swelling (not the kind associated with a normal erection) and tenderness. The exact allergic reaction will depend upon the individual.
So how does a person find out if the reaction is to the latex or the lubricant - especially if the condom is pre-lubricated and the specific lubricant used is not known?
One way is to take a condom (unused) and cut it in two. Take one half and soak it in soapy water for an hour or so, then rinse it thoroughly. Use paper towels to soak up excess water, then let it hang to dry. Then take the two halves - one of which has been washed and one of which has not - and place one on one arm and one on the other for 10 minutes. Remove, and wait to see if there are any signs of a reaction. If a reaction shows up on the one which is lubricated, it is most likely the lubricant. If both arms show a reaction, it is more likely to be the latex. (This method is not 100% accurate, but it gives a generally good idea of the cause.)
Alternatively, if the lubricant is self-applied, a test can simply be done applying the lubricant to the body and seeing if there is a reaction or not.
When the source is determined, a guy can then proceed to either (a) purchase non-latex condoms, (b) buy unlubricated condoms, or (c) change the lubricant he is currently using to one which is hopefully more suited to his skin.
A lubricant or latex allergy is only one potential cause of an itchy penis, of course. When dry skin is a cause, regular application of a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is urged. Penis skin can dry out for many reasons, resulting in flaky skin which is prone to itching. Keeping the penis skin moisturized with agents like vitamin E and shea butter can stave off many an itchy situation. It also helps to use a crème that contains L-carnitine; serious itching can damage penis sensitivity, and the neuroprotective properties of L-carnitine can help maintain penis sensation at an appropriate level.
