Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with pcos may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels.
Signs and symptoms of pcos vary. A diagnosis of pcos is made when you experience at least two of these signs:
Irregular periods. Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles are the most common sign of pcos. For example, you might have fewer than nine periods a year, more than 35 days between periods and abnormally heavy periods.
Excess androgen. Elevated levels of male hormone may result in physical signs, such as excess facial and body hair (hirsutism), and occasionally severe acne and male-pattern baldness.
Polycystic ovaries. Your ovaries might be enlarged and contain follicles that surround the eggs. As a result, the ovaries might fail to function regularly.
The exact cause of pcos isn't known. Factors that might play a role include:
Low-grade inflammation (role of reactive oxygen species)
3) gestational diabetes or pregnancy-induced high blood pressure
4) miscarriage or premature birth
5) nonalcoholic steatohepatitis
6) metabolic syndrome comprising of high blood pressure, high blood sugars and impaired cholesterol levels leading to increase risk of cardiovascular disease
7) pre diabetes/ type 2 diabetes
8) sleep apnoea
9) depression, anxiety, eating disorders
10) abnormal uterine bleeding
11) cancer uterus
There's no test to definitively diagnose pcos. Your doctor is likely to start with a discussion of your medical history, including your menstrual periods and weight changes. A physical exam will include checking for signs of excess hair growth, insulin resistance and acne. Other modalities include a pelvic examination, blood tests and an ultrasound
Pcos treatment focuses on managing your individual concerns, such as infertility, irregular periods, hirsutism, acne or obesity. Specific treatment might involve lifestyle changes (weight reduction/ limit carbohydrates/ active exercises) or medication (depending upon the focus of concern).

Dysmenorrhea, also known as painful periods, or menstrual cramps, is pain during menstruation. Its usual onset occurs around the time that menstruation begins. Although it's normal for most women (20-90%) to have mild abdominal cramps on the first day or two of their period, about 10% of women experience severe pain.It is the most common menstrual disorder. Typically it starts within a year of the first menstrual period.
Types of dysmenorrhoea
1) primary dysmenorrhoea where there is no apparent pathological cause for it. Almost 50% woman suffer from this. Seen particularly in adolescents and young women and mostly resolves post pregnancy
2) secondary dysmenorrhoea is generally related to some kind of gynecologic disorder. Most of these disorders can be easily treated with medications or surgery.
Causes may be:
Fibroids – benign tumours that develop within the uterine wall or are attached to it
Adenomyosis – the tissue that lines the uterus (called the endometrium) begins to grow within its muscular walls
Sexually transmitted infection (sti)
Endometriosis – fragments of the endometrial lining that are found on other pelvic organs
Pelvic inflammatory disease (pid), which is primarily an infection of the fallopian tubes, but can also affect the ovaries, uterus, and cervix
An ovarian cyst or tumour
The use of an intrauterine device (iud), a birth control method
The main symptom of dysmenorrhea is pain. It occurs in your lower abdomen during menstruation and may also be felt in your hips, lower back, or thighs. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lightheadedness, headache, or fatigue.
For most women, the pain usually starts shortly before or at the beginning of their menstrual period, peaks around 24 hours after the start of bleeding, and subsides after 2 to 3 days. Sometimes clots or pieces of bloody tissue from the lining of the uterus are expelled from the uterus, causing pain.
Making a diagnosis
If you experience painful periods, check with your doctor to see whether you might have an underlying disorder that is causing secondary dysmenorrhea. You may be given a pelvic examination, and your blood and urine may be tested.
A doctor may also wish to use ultrasound to get a picture of your internal organs or even use the technique of laparoscopy for a direct look into your uterus.
Primary dysmenorrhea is usually treated by medication such as an analgesic medication, ocp'sTreatment for secondary dysmenorrhea will vary with the underlying cause. Diagnostic laparoscopy, other hormonal treatments, or trial of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens) are potential next steps. Surgery can be done to remove fibroids or to widen the cervical canal if it is too narrow.
My wife is pregnant 11 weeks now and she consume misoprostol and mifepristone when she was 9 weeks but didn't bleed at all. So we are worried that her foods might have been damage and we want to go for abortion.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyoma/ myoma, fibroids aren't associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer.
Types of fibroids
Location wise: submucosal, intramural, serosal
Size wise: small to large
Pedicle wise: sessile or pedunculated
Most women with uterine fibroids have no symptoms and are found accidentally on an ultrasound. However, fibroids can cause a number of symptoms depending on their size, location within the uterus, and how close they are to adjacent pelvic organs. These are most commonly abnormal bleeding, pain and pressure.
- Heavy bleeding or painful periods (60-70%)
- Bleeding between periods (15-20%)
- Pressure, pain, or fullness in your lower stomach
- Enlarged abdomen
- Needing to pee often or trouble emptying your bladder
- Pain during sex
- Miscarriages or infertility
What causes them
-Hormones-Estrogen and progesterone are the hormones that make the lining of your uterus thicken every month during your period. They also seem to affect fibroid growth. When hormone production slows down during menopause, fibroids usually shrink.
-Genetics-Researchers have found genetic differences between fibroids and normal cells in the uterus.
Diagnosis and management
-Uterine fibroids are diagnosed by pelvic examination and by ultrasound
-Most of the fibroids do not require treatment as they are asymptomatic
If treatment for uterine fibroids is necessary, there are several options available that include
1) Conservative management includes treatment to reduce bleeding and pain during periods
2) Medical management such as mifepristone, danazol, gnrh analogs, low-dose oral contraceptives, lng- intra uterine device, etc depending upon the case
3) Surgery (hysterectomy, myomectomy)
4) Non surgical mri-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound (mrgfus or hifu), and uterine artery embolization (uae)
