Polycystic Ovaries POCD Natural Herbal Ayurveda Medicine Melbourne Australia


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a most common hormonal disease in women. It affects 5 to 10% of women during their reproductive age.



Polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome or hyperandrogenic anovulation is a disorder that is commonly caused due to imbalances in the functioning of the endocrine system. The causes of PCOS are not completely understood. However, there is solid evidence that the disease may be genetic.



The ovaries of women with PCOS are enlarged and filled with small aggregations of fluid called follicles. These can be detected during an ultrasound examination. If PCOS is diagnosed and treated early, it will help avoiding long-term complications, such as infertility, heart disease or type II diabetes in females.


Causes of Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)


The exact causes of PCOS are not known. However, certain factors are considered to predispose a person toward PCOS.



  • Excessive insulin – Too much insulin in the body appears to influence the ovaries to secrete more androgens or male hormones. This may pose a problem in proper ovulation.
  • Low-grade inflammation – Women with PCOS are often found to have low-grade inflammation because the ovaries are activated to secrete more androgens.
  • Heredity – You are more likely to suffer from PCOS if your close female relatives have suffered from it. Certain genes may be associated with PCOS; more research is being conducted to investigate this theory.

Certain lifestyle changes can alleviate the symptoms of PCOS.



  1. Maintain normal weight: Obesity aggravates insulin resistance and this makes PCOS worse. By reducing weight, you can decrease both insulin resistance as well as abnormal androgen levels in the blood. Eat smaller portions during meals, and do not take second helpings.
  2. Dietary changes: Figure out a diet that is low in carbohydrates and fats and stick to it. High levels of carbohydrates and fats increase the levels of insulin in the body. Select complex carbohydrates that are rich in dietary fiber; do not cut out carbohydrates from the diet completely. These include barley, brown rice, wheat pasta, beans, whole-grain bread and cereal.
  3. Stay active: Regular exercise helps keep blood sugar levels in check. It may also regulate insulin levels and help you maintain a normal weight
