PolyCystic Ovarian Disease


Polycystic ovarian disease is also known as PCOS ( Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome ), it is called a syndrome because it is a complex manifestation involving many factors and organs such as insulin resistance, obesity, and irregular menstrual bleeding. In most cases, there is excessive bleeding. It is one of the leading causes of infertility in females nowadays. Organs involved in the PCOD are the Ovaries, Adrenal glands, Pancreas, and Pituitary glands. PCOD can cause inhibition of follicular development, microcysts in the ovary, anovulation, and menstrual changes. In Ayurveda, PCOD comes under yonivyapad.

  • Insulin Resistance is the major cause of PCOD. As the insulin levels increase it leads to an increase in the male hormone androgen. Insulin resistance means your body does not process it properly. This leads to higher insulin levels in the blood. An elevated insulin level even if the blood glucose is normal, can indicate insulin resistance.

  • Improper diet and lifestyle
  • Usage of excess of cosmetics
