Bioidentical Hormones for PCOS: Finding Balance & Relief

PCOS: Is it a condition to worry?

One out of every ten women who are of reproductive age suffering from the common hormonal condition known as polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS. It throws off the body’s delicate hormonal balance, resulting in a series of symptoms that can seriously affect a woman’s mental and physical health. Even though PCOS is quite common, it is frequently misdiagnosed, causing women to deal with inexplicable symptoms and possibly long-term health effects.

How to know if you have PCOS? Know about the signs!

Effective PCOS management requires early detection and action. Below is a summary of some typical symptoms to watch out for:

  • Abnormal menstrual cycles

Period irregularities or absence are among the main signs of PCOS. This will show up as protracted cycles (polymenorrhea), few periods (oligomenorrhea), or no periods at all (amenorrhea).

  • Problems with fertility

Ovulation, the process by which a mature egg is released from the ovary, can be severely disrupted by PCOS. Infertility or trouble becoming pregnant may result from this.

  • High Levels of Androgen

Although women naturally produce modest levels of androgens, they are generally thought of as male sex hormones. The overproduction of androgens by the ovaries in PCOS can problems.

Early detection and intervention are crucial for effectively managing PCOS. Here’s a breakdown of some common symptoms to be aware of:

  • Menstrual irregularities

One of the major symptoms of PCOS is irregular or absent menstrual periods. This will be visible in the form of infrequent periods (oligomenorrhea), prolonged cycles (polymenorrhea), or complete absence of periods (amenorrhea).

  • Fertility issues

PCOS can significantly disrupt ovulation, the process by which a mature egg is released from the ovary. This can lead to difficulty getting pregnant or infertility.

  • Excessive Androgen Levels

Androgens are typically considered male sex hormones, but women naturally produce small amounts. In PCOS, the ovaries may produce excess androgens, leading to symptoms like:

  • Acne

Excess androgen can aggravate acne on the back, chest, and face.

  • Elevated Sexual Attraction

A higher sex drive may be experienced by certain PCOS-affected women.

  • Problems with Metabolism

Insulin resistance, a condition where insulin sensitivity is compromised, is a result of PCOS. This may result in:

  • Gaining Weight

The body may find it more difficult to use glucose, or sugar, as fuel when insulin resistance is present, which can result in weight gain, especially around the middle.

  • Elevated Diabetes Type 2 Risk

Insulin resistance may eventually play a role in the emergence of type 2 diabetes.

  • Additional Possible Symptoms

Some women with PCOS may also have the following symptoms in addition to the primary ones listed above:

  • Scalp thinning of hair
  • Skin tags under the arms or on the neck
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Disturbances in sleep
  • Digestive issues

Health Risks Associated with PCOS

If PCOS is not addressed, you may be more susceptible to additional health issues, such as: • cardiovascular disease.

An elevated risk of heart disease and stroke can be attributed to PCOS-related insulin resistance and chronic inflammation.

  • Syndrome Metabolic

excessive blood pressure, excessive blood sugar, bad cholesterol, and increased belly fat are all part of this cluster of diseases. A person with metabolic syndrome has a notably higher chance of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

  • Apnea during sleep

The hallmark of this sleep disorder is breathing pauses while you’re asleep. Sleep apnea is more likely to develop in women with PCOS.

  • Endometriosis

a disorder in which the tissue that ordinarily borders the uterus—endometrial tissue—grows outside of it. Endometriosis risk may rise in those with PCOS.
