What is PCOS ?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (sometimes referred to as disease depending on severity) is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. It can cause problems with one’s periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS also may cause unwanted changes in the way you look. If it isn’t treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes, heart disease and even cancers! Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts on their ovaries. That is why it is called polycystic ovary syndrome. The cysts themselves are not harmful, but lead to hormone imbalances. Did you know that symptoms of PCOS persist even when both the ovaries are removed? The root cause of the problem is not in your ovaries but in your metabolism. There is involvement of the hormone regulation center at hypothalamus in the brain which affects multiple organs (Multi-system disease).

As if it was not bad enough, it increases your chances of developing a big disease later on in life, like full-blown diabetes, autoimmune thyroid disease and even cancers.

The BioCycle study (NIH 2009) showed that untreated, hormonal imbalances significantly increase a woman’s risk to diseases of inflammation – heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and premature aging, not to mention a perpetual state of body suffering before these diseases even show up.

Some of the symptoms are as follows:

  • Acne.
  • Weight gain and trouble losing weight.
  • Extra hair on the face and body. Often women get thicker and darker facial hair and more hair on the chest, belly, and back.
  • Thinning hair on the scalp.
  • Irregular periods. Often women with PCOS have fewer than nine periods a year. Some women have no periods. Others have very heavy bleeding.
  • Fertility problems. Many women who have PCOS have trouble getting pregnant (infertility).
  • Depression.

Types of PCOS 

There are different types of PCOS, each characterized by specific symptoms and hormonal imbalances:

  • Insulin-resistant PCOS: This type is associated with insulin resistance, leading to elevated insulin levels in the blood.
  • Post-pill PCOS: Some women develop PCOS symptoms after discontinuing hormonal birth control pills.
  • Inflammatory PCOS: Inflammation plays a significant role in this type of PCOS, contributing to hormonal imbalances and symptoms.

PCOS Treatment

Today, the western medicine deals with identifying and treating the symptoms around PCOS. But these spot treatments are at best described as band-aid solutions to a much deeper problem that gets worse not only due to the ignorance of the root cause but also as side-effects of these symptomatic treatments over long periods of time. If you have been diagnosed with PCOS, chances are you have been prescribed Birth Control Pills or OC’s (oral contraceptives) for regularizing hormone cycles and hence periods and metformin for elevated blood sugars or pre/diabetic conditions. All in an attempt to mask the symptoms but they come back in a worse form once synthetic hormones and pills are stopped.

Let's have a look at these two so that you can get to the root of the problem and avoid potential side effects of these.

Birth Control Pill

The birth control pill is commonly prescribed to regulate menstrual cycles in women with PCOS. However, it may also have side effects such as headaches and mood changes.

What it does: The synthetic hormones in the birth control mask your natural hormonal patterns to prevent ovulation from happening, and therefore prevent pregnancy. The menstrual period you experience on the pill is not an actual period, but rather a “break-through bleed” that occurs from the drop in estrogen. So even though it might be regulating your cycle, once you get off the pill chances are your period will return to the same state it was before and mostly it gets even worse.

Side effects: Women who continually use contraceptive pills are more likely to develop circulatory problems (thrombosis and embolism), liver tumors, headaches, depression and cancer (especially breast cancer) than those who don’t use them. The risk increases with age.

Metformin (Glucophage)

Metformin is a medication used to manage insulin resistance in women with PCOS. It can help regulate blood sugar levels and improve symptoms, but it may also cause digestive issues.

What it does: Metformin helps with blood sugar and insulin management by suppressing glucose production by the liver. It’s commonly used for diabetes and PCOS with insulin resistance.

Side effects: In a recent study, metformin was found to cause an impairment in mental cognition. It’s more commonly known to cause serious digestive issues like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and more uncomfortable symptoms.

If you are diagnosed with PCOS and you have been offered a prescription of birth control pills & synthetic hormones, PLEASE STOP!

The advice to lose weight & exercise moreover, does not completely work either. They say that you should lose weight to be healthy but I say that you should be healthy to lose weight. I am sure you can relate to that. I am not here to criticize any system, and each kind of treatment has its own role.

Tests for PCOS

To diagnose PCOS, doctors may perform tests including blood tests, pelvic exams, and ultrasound scans to assess hormone levels and the appearance of the ovaries.
