PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease) is one of the most common disorder among women of reproductive age. In female’s body, various hormones operate in harmony to regularize smooth functioning of all systems including the reproductive system.
In PCOD there is an imbalance of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, resulting in the formation of multiple cysts on the surface of ovaries. Due to hormonal imbalance, the ovaries produce an excess of male reproductive hormones (androgen) and at the same time, there is a failure of egg formation.
This leads to irregular menses, the absence of menses, excessive or scanty menstrual flow, weight gain, excess facial and body hair, hair thinning, baldness, acne and certain masculine features in the body. The excess of androgen with the absence of ovulation may cause infertility. Early diagnosis and treatment of PCOD may reduce the risk of long-term complications, such as insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
In a conventional approach for the treatment of PCOD, medicines are given to regulate the menstrual cycle and some might prescribe hormonal therapy or anti-androgenic drugs. With the understanding, that the hormonal imbalance lies at the root of PCOD, correcting this hormonal imbalance should be the approach in the treatment of PCOD rather than supplying hormones externally.
The homeopathic approach towards treatment of PCOD believes that physical, mental and genetic make-up that individualizes a person should be taken into consideration along with presenting complaints.
