PCOS - Dietary Tips To Avoid Weight Gain In This Disorder!

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. Polycystic means “many cysts,” and PCOS often causes clusters of small, pearl-sized cysts in the ovaries. The cysts are fluid-filled and contain immature eggs. PCOS affects one in 4 women.

What are the causes behind it?
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. 

PCOS Symptoms
PCOS is a syndrome disease defined by a collection of signs and symptoms. The symptoms of PCOS that one patient experiences can be very different from the symptoms of another patient. If you have two or more of the following symptoms, you need to have a thorough checkup to determine if you need PCOS treatment:

  • Irregular or missing menstrual periods
  • Infertility
  • Excess or unwanted body or facial hair growth
  • Thinning hair on the scalp
  • Weight problems, often including weight gain around the waist
  • Skin problems, including skin tags, darkening skin and acne

Does PCOS increase weight?
The answer is a ‘YES’. Most PCOS patients are overweight and are asked to exercise which helps control the symptoms but a lot many people have a completely normal body type.

What are the risks associated with PCOS-related weight gain?
No matter what the cause, weight gain can be detrimental to your health. Women with PCOS are more likely to develop many of the problems associated with weight gain and insulin resistance, including:

Many of these conditions can lead to heart disease. In fact, women with PCOS are four to seven times more likely to have a heart attack than women of the same age without the condition.

Benefit of Weight Loss with PCOS

Modest weight loss will not cure PCOS, but it will help. Weight loss can restore the normal function of the ovaries and result in normal hormone production. This may, in turn, lead to improvements in symptoms of PCOS, such as excess hair growth, acne or scalp hair loss.

Protect Yourself From Weight Gain

  • Eat Right: A healthy diet low in complex carbohydrates, moderate protein and low fat is important, as this can help regulate blood sugar levels. 
  • Exercise: Start doing low-to-moderate activities like walking or swimming for 30-to-90 minutes per day because exercise (even without weight loss) has been shown to lower or get rid of insulin resistance.
  • Lose Weight: The more overweight you are the more likely you are to be insulin resistant whether you have PCOS or not. Losing just 5% of your bodyweight will help lower your insulin resistance.
  • Avoid Stress: Don’t over stress yourself as it increases the blood pressure level in your body and can’t help to resist with PCOS. So, try to stay as calm as possible.
  • Get more sleep (at least 7-to-9 hours in a day): Not getting enough sleep can also make your insulin resistance worse, which in turn acquires you the weight.

DIET:

Foods you should avoid while suffering from PCOS:

  • Sweetened juice, canned fruit in heavy syrup, or sweetened applesauce
  • Starchy vegetables including potatoes, corn, and peas
  • Refined grains made with white flour such as white bread and pasta, bagels, or white rice
  • Sweetened grains and donuts
  • Sugary drinks such as soda or juice
  • Sugary foods such as cookies, cakes, and candy
  • Snacks such as potato chips and tortilla chips

1. Hormonal imbalance

Fluctuating hormone levels in the body have a direct impact on the menstrual cycle. These fluctuations can be caused by dysfunction in the pituitary gland, thyroid gland or adrenal gland. It can also be a result of malfunction in either or both ovaries and the secretion of hormones originating there.

2. Anatomic problems

One fourth menstrual disorders are caused by problems of the anatomy. These include various gynecological issues like the presence of uterine fibroids and polyps, reduced uterine contractile strength, adenomyosis (intrusion of uterine tissue into the muscular wall of the uterus), a uterus with an excessively large surface area, and endometrial cancer.

3. Clotting irregularities

Abnormality in clotting is a cause of heavy menstrual bleeding in women. It leads to exceeding blood loss from minor cuts and gashes and makes one easily prone to bruising. This may also include medical conditions such as thrombocytopenia (platelet dysfunction) and Von Willebrand disease.

वुमेन्स मेंस्तुराशनल हाइजीन टिप्स - Women's Menstruational Hygiene Tips In Hindi!

किसी भी स्त्री के यौवन की शुरुआत शारीर में कई परिवर्तनों और विकास का सूचक होती है. हालांकि इस बदलाव के साथ ढलने में थोड़ा समय अवश्य लगता है. ये बदलाव सिर्फ शारीरिक और बौद्धिक ही नहीं होता है बल्कि कई बार तो इसकी वजह से स्त्रियों की पूरी दिनचर्या बदल जाती है. माहवारी या मासिक धर्म के दौरान तनाव और दर्द से बचने का सबसे बेहतर तरीका है कि उन दिनों में साफ़-सफाई और स्वच्छता का विशेष ध्यान रखा जाए. सैनिटरी नैपकिन्स के इस्तेमाल से लेकर उन्हें सही तरीके से नष्ट करने तक ऐसी कई चीज़ें हैं जो हमें याद रखनी चाहिए. तो आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम आपके “महीने के उन दिनों” में हाइजिन रहने के लिए कुछ बहुत आसान से टिप्स बताएं.

1. टैम्पोंज की जगह मेनस्ट्रूवल कप इस्तेमाल करें
टैम्पोंज कीके बदले मेनस्ट्रूवल कप ज़्यादा आरामदायक होते हैं. क्योंकि कप्स ब्लड फ्लो को सोखने की बजाए उसे इकट्ठा करने का काम करते हैं. यानी इसमें लीकेज की संभावना नहीं है और आपको हर आधे घंटे में बदलने के लिए बाथरूम नहीं जाना पड़ता है. इसके अलावा टैम्पोंज आपको पीड़ादायक और शुष्क महसूस करा सकते हैं.इसलिए जिन स्त्रियों को हैवी फ्लो होता है उनके लिए कप्स निश्चित रूप से बेहतर विकल्प हैं.

2. खुजली से बचने के लिए सैनिटरी पैड्स को सही तरीके से लगाएं
यदि आप सैनिटरी पैड्स का इस्तेमाल कर रही हैं तो इससे जुड़े एहतियातों का बेहद सावधानी से अनुसरण करें. पैड्स को सही से पहनने के लिए पर्याप्त समय लें क्योंकि अगर वो सही तरीके से नहीं लगेगा तो खुजली होने होने की संभावना में वृद्धि हो जाती है. इसका कारण ये है कि स्त्री जननांग बहुत गिला होता है. लेकिन याद रहे आवश्यकता पड़ने पर चिकित्सकीय सहायता भी ले लेनी चाहिए.

3. सुरक्षा के लिए जनानंग के बाहरी हिस्से को रखें साफ़
हालांकि ये सही है कि मादा जनांग खुदबखुद साफ़ होता रहता है लेकिन फिर भी कभी-कभी हल्के गुनगुने पानी से इसके बाहरी हिस्से को साफ़ करते रहना आवश्यक है. लेकिन अंदर साबुन का इस्तेमाल न करें. इसके बदले में यदि आप चाहें तो महिलाओं के लिए बाजार से मिलने वाले स्वच्छ उत्पाद ले सकती हैं. यूरिनरी ट्रैक्ट इन्फ़ेक्शन से बचने के लिए इस बात का ख्याल रखें की पानी जननांग से एनल एरिया की तरफ जाए न कि इसका उल्टा.

4. पीरियड्स के लिए अलग अंडरवियर रखें “हमेशा”
मेनस्ट्रूएशन के दौरान पैंटीज को दागों से मुक्त रखना मुश्किल है. ऐसा तब और होता है जब काम से बाहर होती हैं या दफ्तर में या कहीं और होती हैं. इसलिए यदि आप दो या अधिक अंडरवियर रखेंगी तो आपको आसानी होगी. हालांकि इन पैंटीज को बाद में गर्म पानी से ठीक से साफ़ करके ही इस्तेमाल करना चाहिए.

5. पीरियड के दिनों में अपनी चादर को बदलते रहें
रात में कभी लीकेज होना सामान्य बात है. गंदगी और संक्रमण से बचने के लिए अपनी चादर बदलती रहें. चादर को धोने के लिए डेटॉल या किसी भी दूसरे सैनिटाईजर का इस्तेमाल करें. इसके अलावा अपने इनरवियर को भी बदलती रहें. जिन लड़कियों को ज़्यादा पसीना आता है, वो जितना ज़्यादा अपना इनर वियर बदलेगी (बजाए उन्हें पूरे दिन पहनने के), उतना ही उन्हें आरामदायक महसूस होगा.

6. कसरत के बाद जननांग की सफाई न भूलें
अगर आप पीरियड के दिनों में योगा या किसी भी प्रकार की माइल्ड कसरत करती हैं, तो कपड़े बदलना और नहाना न भूलें क्योंकि कसरत के कारण पसीना इकट्ठा हुआ होगा, जिससे जीवाणु संक्रमण हो सकता है.

7. खानी पिने से पहले हाथों की ठीक से सफाई करें
पीरियड के दिनों में कुछ भी खाने या पीने से पहले अपने हाथों को साबुन या हैंड सैनिटाईजर से धोना न भूलें. ऐसा करने से आप कई अनावश्यक बीमारियों से बच जाते हैं.

8. सैनिटरी पैड्स या टैम्पोंस को उचित निपटारण करें
सैनिटरी पैड्स या टैम्पून्स को कूड़ेदान में डालने से पहले उन्हें अच्छे से ढकना न भूलें. उन्हें कभी भी फ्लश न करें, चाहें आप कितनी भी जल्दी में हो.

Menstrual Disorders - Know The Reason Behind It!

Menstruation is a barometer of a women's health. Any changes in the menstrual pattern of a woman could be a harbinger of serious underlying disease and should not be overlooked. However adolescent girls are a special case where menstrual pattern is variable and much different from Adult women. It is very common for teenaged girls who have recently started menstruating to have irregular periods. This period pattern is wrongly classified as 'period problems". At the same time one needs to understand that some of the real problems like period pain in young girls are often overlooked as "normal" when they could be associated with serious medical disorders.

Although menstrual disorders are fairly common in most young women, it may have an underlying cause which can be indicative of a serious issue. Therefore, it is recommended for young women to consult a gynecologist if any difficulties arise.

Symptoms Of Menstrual Disorders (Severe)

  1. Excessive abdominal pain
  2. Excessive vaginal pain
  3. Missed / irregular periods
  4. Painful periods

The severe symptoms are usually accompanied by mild symptoms such as:

  1. Irritability
  2. Weight loss
  3. Vomiting
  4. Headaches/back pain
  5. Fatigue
  6. Insomnia
  7. Diarrhea

PCOS and Menstrual Disorders

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a common reason for women to experience irregular menstrual periods. PCOS occurs when there is an excess of male hormones (androgens) in the body which hinder the production and release of eggs in the ovaries, resulting in menstruation problems. Symptoms of PCOS are acne, hair loss and weight gain. Women with PCOS are 80% more likely to suffer from fertility issues later in life. Along with that, PCOS can result in high cholesterol and high blood pressure. One serious concern for women with PCOS is resistance to insulin which leads to diabetes.

Diet and menstrual disorders

Poor diet can also lead to menstrual complications. An extremely high fiber diet can result in less frequent ovulations and therefore irregular periods. A diet which is too low in fats and fatty acid can also result in abnormal menstrual patterns.

Stress and PCOS

Young women are often prone to immense stress. Stress is one of the primary reasons for delayed periods. Stress can cause minor complications in the hypothalamus which may have consequences in the levels of hormones in the body.

The presence of ovarian cysts in the vagina may be a cause for irregular or painful periods. Endometriosis can cause heavy bleeding and extreme pain.

Menstrual Cycle - Things To Know!

The cyclical change in the uterus and ovaries of the female reproductive system is called the menstrual cycle. It includes changes in the physiology of the uterus along with the change in hormones as well. This cyclical change is what allows a woman to get pregnant. This cycle allows the formation of oocytes (or eggs) and helps to prepare the uterus for implantation.

The commencement of period is called the menarche. It normally starts from the age of twelve to fifteen years. The time between the first day of the period and the first day of the next one is usually twenty one to forty five days in young adults and twenty one to thirty five in older women. The entire cycle is mainly governed by hormones like oestrogen, progesterone, Luteinizing Hormone etc.

Hormonal changes play a big role in the menstrual cycle. It consists of three phases

  • Menstrual stage (1-7 days)
  • Proliferative stage
  • Secretory stage

In the menstrual stage, the thick endometrial lining of the uterus will start to shed and will come out of the vagina in the form of blood and mucous. This may last from four to seven days. The levels of both progesterone and estrogen remain low in this phase.

In the proliferative stage, the amount of oestrogen gradually rises and the menstrual flow reduces and eventually stops. The Follicle stimulating Hormone (FSH) is produced in the brain that stimulates your ovaries to produce mature eggs. The eggs are present in a follicular bag, which allows the secretion of oestrogen. Hence the amount of oestrogen is the least on the first day and increases gradually. At the same time, the uterine lining starts to thicken. This is the phase in which the egg is produced and in the presence of sperm, gets fertilised.

You may notice a thin slippery discharge around these days that makes it easier for the sperm to travel and survive in the uterus. You are most fertile in this stage, around on the 14th day of the cycle when ovulation occurs. The egg survives for around 24 hrs, whereas sperm can survive for about 2-3 days.

In the secretory phase, if the egg is not fertilised, the levels of oestrogen and progesterone fall. The thick lining that has been produced starts to shed and that commences the menstruation. If the egg is fertilised, then it may implant itself to the uterine wall and produce the pregnancy hormone called human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG).

The symptoms are mainly menstrual irregularities and abnormal hair growth, acne, obesity and difficulty in conceiving. The homeopathic remedy is chosen not on the basis of cysts but rather on each patient’s symptoms, though the cysts may provide help in making the choice of medicine. To take an example, the presence of cysts predominantly in the right ovary suggests the use of homeopathic medicines lycopodium, belladona and apis mellifica. And if the cysts occupy the left ovary, homeopathic medicines thuja occidentalis and lachesis are of great help.
Homeopathic cure for infertility, diabetes mellitus and hypertension

The homeopathic mode of treatment also provides help in these conditions associated with PCOS. The treatment for these conditions is always based upon the constitution of the patient and the medicines vary for each patient, depending upon the particular symptoms.

At the same time one needs to understand that some of the real problems like period pain in young girls are often overlooked as "normal" when they could be associated with serious medical disorders.

Although menstrual disorders are fairly common in most young women, it may have an underlying cause which can be indicative of a serious issue. Therefore, it is recommended for young women to consult a gynecologist if any difficulties arise.

PCOS and Menstrual Disorders

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a common reason for women to experience irregular menstrual periods. PCOS occurs when there is an excess of male hormones (androgens) in the body which hinder the production and release of eggs in the ovaries, resulting in menstruation problems. Symptoms of PCOS are acne, hair loss and weight gain. Women with PCOS are 80% more likely to suffer from fertility issues later in life. Along with that, PCOS can result in high cholesterol and high blood pressure. One serious concern for women with PCOS is resistance to insulin which leads to diabetes.

Diet and menstrual disorders

Poor diet can also lead to menstrual complications. An extremely high fiber diet can result in less frequent ovulations and therefore irregular periods. A diet which is too low in fats and fatty acid can also result in abnormal menstrual patterns.

Stress and PCOS

Young women are often prone to immense stress. Stress is one of the primary reasons for delayed periods. Stress can cause minor complications in the hypothalamus which may have consequences in the levels of hormones in the body.

The presence of ovarian cysts in the vagina may be a cause for irregular or painful periods. Endometriosis can cause heavy bleeding and extreme pain.
