What Are The Symptoms of PCOS?
The initial symptoms of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) often go unnoticed because they are extremely mild and common. Most of the women who suffer from PCOS, do not medically examine themselves due to the 'silent nature' of this condition. By the time PCOS is diagnosed, multiple cysts are already formed in the ovaries which trigger the following common and uncommon symptoms:
- Irregular/delayed/late periods
- Scanty or heavy period flow
- Severe cramps
- White Discharge & Itching in intimate area
- Growth of facial hair, medically termed as Hirsutism
- Increase in testosterone level leading to suppressed ovulation
- Unexplained increase in weight

How is PCOS & Pregnancy Related?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or simply referred to as PCOS is a condition developed in women of childbearing age. In this syndrome, 'string of cysts' are developed in the ovaries which results in delayed or irregular periods. The higher complications of PCOS are infertility or difficulty to conceive.
During ovulation- a part of the menstrual cycle, the mature egg is released from the ovary and can be fertilized by a sperm for the next 12 to 24 hours. For women suffering from PCOS, enough hormones aren't produced by the body naturally and ovulation does not take place. Absence of ovulation results in formation of small cysts in the ovaries which produce the hormone- androgen or the male hormone.
Treatment For PCOS:
Modern science doesn't not provide a safe treatment to reverse PCOS permanently. Treatment like removing the cysts via surgery, taking hormone pills to treat hormonal imbalance, consuming period-inducing pills and finally, Oral Contraceptive Pills are prescribed by the doctors as a temporary treatment for PCOS.
Only Ayurveda has discovered a permanent and safe solution for PCOS which is is dissolving the cysts in the ovaries with the help of medicinal herbs. Gynoveda, India's leading treatment for PCOS also suggests consuming Vamaa & Myraa pills to treat the root cause of PCOS.
