As per modern science, exact causes of PCOS/PCOD are unknown but the following factors play a role:
- Excessive insulin production - this leads to androgen production which causes difficulty with Ovulation.
- Low-grade inflammation which is basically white blood cells' production of substances to fight infection. Women with PCOS often have this.
- Heredity - Certain genes might be linked to PCOS.
- Excess androgen. Abnormal levels of androgen produced from the ovaries, results in hirsutism and acne.

Check out the root cause of PCOS/PCOD according to Ayurveda below:
According to Ayurveda the main causes of PCOS/PCOD are a faulty diet, sedentary lifestyle and stress.
You must know that both PCOS and PCOD are the same medical condition diagnosed by gynecologists. The root causes of PCOS/PCOD are as follows:
Metabolism or digestive power (Pitta) plays the most important role in converting any food we eat in to nutritional juices.
Weak metabolism reduces our ability to properly digest food resulting in undigested food matter, a sticky mucus-like substance called ‘AMA’ which is highly toxic in nature.
AMA mixes with blood and reaches ovaries where female eggs are produced every month.
When AMA comes in contact with hyper-sensitive female eggs, it disturbs its natural growth process called Ovulation and these immature eggs gets trapped in to ovaries and develop in multiple cysts or medically stated as Poly Cysts in Ovaries.
Ayurveda Treatment for PCOS/PCOD:
Ayurveda treats the root cause of PCOS/PCOD by detoxifying AMA and dissolving cysts in the ovary. Ayurveda also strengthens metabolism and boosts immunity. With the power of medicinal herbs, the function of the ovary is improved which helps in regulating ovulation. Overall hormonal imbalance is restored and a natural way for ovulation is paved.
