Introduction to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects the female reproductive system. It is the most common hormonal disorder of women of reproductive age. It can cause many different symptoms, such as hair growth or excess hair on the face, acne, weight gain or weight gain without trying, and male-like body hair. It is also the leading cause of female infertility.

Signs and symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, include excess hair growth on the face, body, and limbs; acne; and weight gain or weight gain without trying. The most common sign of PCOS is female-like hair growth, especially on the face, chest, back, and arms. Other common signs and symptoms of PCOS include: difficulty getting pregnant; irregular or no menstrual periods; and high levels of male-like hair on the face, chest, back, and arms. Some women with PCOS have no signs or symptoms of the disorder. 

PCOS is a complex disorder, which means there are many different treatment options. Some women with PCOS only require lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise to feel better. Other women require medication to regulate their hormone levels. The best option for a woman with PCOS will depend on a variety of factors, including her preferences, health status, and budget.

The most common treatment for PCOS is to take a birth control pill every day. The pill can help regulate a woman’s hormones so that she has regular menstrual periods and is able to get pregnant. Other common treatments for PCOS include metformin, a hormone therapy injection, and a progestin-only birth control pill. Despite these being common treatments for PCOS, they are not the only options.

For me, the most effective treatment for PCOS is by exercising and a low-fat, high-fiber and low carb diet. PCOS is related to insulin resistance and the best way to combat insulin resistance is by having a high fiber diet. Being mindful about other dietary items such as soy and dairy.  I can feel the difference in my body within a few weeks of going on a low-fat/high-fiber diet. I also exercise, which also helps regulate my insulin levels.

I have also found that being physically active has been the most effective treatment for me. I do a simple yoga flow in the morning, go for walks during the day, cardio and HIIT workouts, which has helped me feel better.

Sometimes it feels as this is the hardest thing to face because they don’t know enough about what it is or an easy resolution but you can live a wonderful life. Even if you take baby steps, you can see a huge impact in your quality of life.
