Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome or polycystic ovary syndrome is a disease condition in which the ovaries / ovaries are disturbed resulting in higher levels of male hormones in women than they should be. That is why, among the symptoms that can arise in PCOS sufferers are excessive hair growth, such as on the back, face, chest and buttocks, oily and acne prone skin, difficulty getting pregnant, irregular menstruation and thinning head hair.
Unfortunately until now, it's still unclear what causes PCOS. Researchers suspect that this condition is related to:
Genetic or hereditary hormonal imbalances in the body Immunity to insulin
So it is because the exact cause cannot be determined, the treatment has not been found, and for your question, it cannot be cured. But the good news is that even if the disease is present, the symptoms are perfectly manageable. Among them are the use of hormone therapy, surgery, administration of drugs, lifestyle changes, and so on. So it is indeed important for you to regularly consult with your obstetrician to find out the progress of the disease and the treatment model that is right for you.
Meanwhile, among what you can do at home is maintain ideal body weight by exercising regularly, eating low-fat foods, increasing consumption of vegetables and fruit, staying away from cigarette smoke, and consuming low-sugar foods. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
