Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

PCOS

Ovarian cysts are products of failed ovulation for reasons unknown. One or more ovarian follicles are developed monthly by a hormone called the Follicle-Stimulating hormone (FSH). The act of actual ovulation and transformation of the follicle into the corpus luteum after ovulation is done by the Luteinizing hormone (LH). When cysts appear, ovulation did not precede completion. As LH increases with each month’s ovulation, the cyst swells and stretches the surface membrane causing pain and bleeding and the site. Some cysts can continue to swell and become as large as a golf ball before they are discovered.

Signs and Symptoms of PCOS

  • Painful intercourse
  • Severely painful ovulation, often times with spot bleeding
  • Acne, oily skin
  • Infertility
  • Excess facial and body hair
  • Weight gain, obesity
  • Sweet and carbohydrate cravings
  • Increasing Estrogen Dominance Symptoms
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Lumpy, bumpy outer ovarian layer

Although the cause is considered unknown at this time, contributing factors to the development of PCOS include:

  • A Hormonal Imbalance
  • Overeating junk food, sugar, refined carbs, and trans-fats
  • Damage to the follicles from xenohormone exposure
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Estrogen Dominance, elevated Estradial levels

Often surgery is the standard form of treatment for PCOS. Removing the ovary along with the cysts is considered standard medical treatment. There may others ways your body can heal naturally.
