Can Women Who Have Children Be Affected By PCOS?
In the afternoon I asked if a woman who already had a child could get a PCOS disease ?? And what was the cause ??
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) or polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition of abnormalities in the ovaries or ovaries in women. This condition causes the woman to have an unbalanced hormone due to an unknown cause. In fact, the hormones produced by the ovaries play a big role in a woman's life.
In a woman's body, hormones play a role in determining the menstrual cycle, feelings or emotions, weight management, and of course fertility. Women who experience PCOS, one of the symptoms will have difficulty getting pregnant because of hormonal imbalances.
Regarding your question, as we said earlier, the cause of PCOS is still unknown. But there are several factors that can increase the risk, such as the body's resistance to insulin (a hormone used to convert sugar), hormone levels such as testosterone, lutein, prolactin and SHBG that are not balanced, and family history with similar complaints.
So pregnancy is not a trigger factor nor is it a protective factor against PCOS, because the cause of PCOS is still unknown. Or in other words, women who have been pregnant and have children, are not protected from PCOS and may experience the disease in the future. And because prevention from this disease also does not exist, then what is important for you to do now is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and if there are certain complaints of any kind, consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
