Let’s begin with the basics… What is polycystic ovary syndrome? (PCOS), And if untreated does it leads to cancer?
PCOS is a hormonal issue that influences women of reproductive age. It’s regularly portrayed by the abundance of Androgen (male hormones) levels and menstrual periods that are either infrequent or are longer than they usually are.
With PCOS, your ovaries may create follicles, which are little assortments of liquid, and they may neglect to routinely release eggs. High levels of male hormones produce symptoms like unpredictable ovulation or no ovulation at all. In straightforward words, women with PCOD or PCOS don’t release a mature egg from their ovaries consistently bringing about infertility. PCOS affects one out of 10 ladies worldwide.
Women suffering from PCOS experience the ill effects of symptoms like heavy vaginal bleeding. This is on the grounds that, as they don’t ovulate and deliver the hormone-Progesterone like normal women do and have typical periods, the lining of their uteri turns out to be thickly prompting heavy bleeding and, in a few cases, Uterine Cancer.
Normal Symptoms of PCOS:
- Skin inflammation is also known as Acne.
- Weight gain.
- Oily skin.
- Heart problems.
- Irregular periods.
- Headaches and Migraines.
- Hirsutism- Unwanted hair growth for women.
- Mood swings and episodes of depression.
How Ayurveda Treatment Can Help?
In Ayurveda, PCOS is caused because of an imbalance of any of the two doshas – Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water). Aggravated Pitta causes defilement of the dhatus or tissues like blood and plasma. This causes a build-up of toxins or ama in the body.
In PCOS patients, these toxins get accumulated in the channels of the psyche, prompting an imbalance of hormones discharged by the pituitary organ. This results in an irregularity of female hormones and causes the development of ovarian growth which is only an assortment of fluids inside the ovary, anovulatory periods or periods with no ovulation, and so on.
Remedies for PCOS/ PCOD
- Correcting hormonal imbalances.
- Reducing Obesity.
- Reducing elevated cholesterol levels.
- Treatment for insulin opposition.
Ayurvedic Herbs like Ashoka (saraca asoca), Dashamoola are amongst a group of herbs that are used to prepare Sukumara Kashaya like Ashwagandha, Eranda, Shatavari, etc for correcting hormonal imbalance.
Additional Risks if Ignored:
Many medications only mask the symptoms of PCOS without treating the underlying hormonal balance. These, if left ignored cause major health issues. Some of them are:
Type 2 diabetes
Insulin resistance affects a large percentage of women suffering from PCOS. Even though weight gain worsens your insulin resistance, you can still have a problem with your insulin if you’re lean.
Because insulin sensitivity decreases in women suffering from PCOS, Type 2 diabetes is a big concern, especially since the onset of diabetes will worsen your hormonal imbalance even further and make your PCOS management journey more difficult.
The biggest cause of mortality in the world is heart disease, and PCOS can increase your chances of suffering from it.
As PCOS comes with insulin resistance and elevated blood sugar levels, a domino effect occurs. Your bad cholesterol goes up and so does inflammation, providing the perfect environment for fatty plaque to appear on the walls of your blood vessels and increase your risk of ruptures and blood clots.
can PCOS cause cancer?
Each month during menstruation, you shed the lining of your uterus. But when you have too much estrogen and too little progesterone (very common in PCOS), this process doesn’t occur, leading to very light periods or no menstruation at all.
Women who experience missed or irregular periods are at a higher risk of developing PCOS endometrial cancer.
Hormonal imbalances are a big cause of infertility. If you have too much or too little of one hormone, your body won’t be able to generate or maintain a pregnancy.
Fortunately, it’s possible to treat PCOS-caused infertility. Most women with PCOS are able to get pregnant with the help of the right medication and lifestyle changes.
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
If you’re suffering from PCOS, you may be at an increased risk of developing liver disease, especially if you’re overweight or obese.
However, obesity alone isn’t the only concern. Even if you’re at a healthy weight, if your androgen levels are too high, this may contribute to the accumulation of fat in your liver.
