Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome


23 comments

Last week, I went to my OBgyn to have my check up. I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is one of the most common endocrine disorders in the human-affecting approximately10% of women in reproductive age. PCOS is characterized by the presence of multiple immature follicles in the ovary, which are not released.

Patients with PCOS may experience one or more of the following signs and symptomss:
a. Menstrual irregularities
b. obesity (Now I know why I’m having a hard time looking for diets that work)
c. insulin resistance and diabetes
d. infertility
e. hyperandrogenism

The doctor prescribed some medicine, but I still have to undergo some lab tests. Also, the doctor told me that a balanced nutritious diet and regular exercise are crucial factors for better management of PCOS symptoms.
