PCOS or policystic ovarian syndrome is a disorder of the ovaries (egg bladder) which is characterized by the appearance of many cysts (fluid filled sacs) in the ovaries. Common symptoms of PCOS sufferers are:
Irregular menstrual cycle or menstruation a lot. Hair appears with a spreading pattern like male body hair (hirsutism), for example on the calves, arms, chest, chin, etc. due to an increase in androgen hormones. Excessive acne Hair loss and thinning Weight gain Difficulty getting pregnant The cause of PCOS itself is not certain. In patients with PCOS, insulin resistance often occurs. Apart from affecting the sugar metabolism in the body, excess insulin will also increase the production of androgen hormones, which interfere with the ovulation process (the release of eggs from the ovaries). As a result, the complication of PCOS is infertility. In addition, PCOS can also cause diabetes mellitus and heart problems.
If you experience PCOS symptoms or have been diagnosed with PCOS, you should consult further treatment with an obstetrician. Pregnancy planning should also be consulted with a doctor. PCOS cannot be eliminated, but the effects it causes can be controlled with drugs.
Some tips if you have PCOS are:
Maintain an ideal body weight. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Consume foods with balanced nutrition. That is the explanation from me, hopefully this is useful.
