 What Is (PCOS) Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?


Do you know that PCOS affects around 52% of women in Pakistan?

It is an alarming statistic that demands attention. 

Globally, one in every ten women grapples with this condition, emphasizing the urgency of addressing it without any delay.

The PCOS Dilemma

 Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a problem many women have. It makes periods irregular, causes cysts on the ovaries, and messes up hormones. A big problem with PCOS is hirsutism, which means growing too much hair in places where men usually have it, like the face, chest, and back. Knowing why PCOS happens, what signs to look for, and how to treat it is really important for making life better for people who have it.

 The Most Common…Non Effective Hair Removal Ways

 Dealing with unwanted hair can be a hassle, right? 

We totally get it. So, why not talk about the usual methods people use: shaving, waxing, and plucking. 

Sure, they provide temporary relief, but they come with their own set of issues. 

 For instance, many ladies at Glow & GO complain that shaving  leaves skin feeling rough, and those pesky hairs often grow back underneath the surface. And let’s not even get started on the pain and time-consuming nature of waxing and plucking. 

Plus, here is the thing – they do not really address the root cause, especially for those dealing with PCOS.

The Most Common PCOS Symptoms Reported By You:

  • checkedIrregular menstrual cycles or absence of periods
  • checkedExcessive hair growth on facial, chest, back, or buttocks areas
  • checkedAcne and oily skin
  • checkedWeight gain or trouble losing weight
  • checkedThinning hair or baldness
  • checkedSkin darkening, particularly in neck creases, groin, and under breasts

PCOS Causes — Know Your Culprit

  •  Genetics and Family History

PCOS often runs in families, indicating a possible genetic link. If a family member has PCOS, you might have a higher likelihood of developing it as well.

  • Insulin Resistance

Insulin resistance plays a significant role in PCOS. When the body becomes resistant to insulin, it compensates by producing more insulin, which can disrupt hormone levels and increase androgen production (male hormones).

  • Hormonal Imbalance Understanding PCOS in women

Excess androgens, such as testosterone, are common indicators of PCOS. This imbalance affects ovarian function and can lead to irregular periods.

  • Obesity

Being overweight exacerbates PCOS symptoms by further disrupting insulin and hormone levels. Carrying extra weight increases the risk of PCOS or intensifies its symptoms.

  • Environmental Factors

Certain environmental chemicals can disrupt hormonal balance and may be associated with PCOS. It’s important to be mindful of these substances and minimize exposure.

  • Stress

Chronic stress not only affects mental health but can also worsen PCOS symptoms. Stress disrupts hormone levels and exacerbates inflammation, which is detrimental for PCOS. Therefore, finding ways to relax and practice self-care is essential.

 Surprising Causes of PCOS

  • Sleep Troubles

You know how important sleep is, right? Well, turns out, not getting enough Zzz’s could mess with your hormones and make PCOS more likely. Think sleep apnea is just about snoring? It might be linked to PCOS too.

  • Gut Check: 

 Ladies, gut health isn’t just about feeling bloated after a big meal. Your gut buddies, the microbiome, have a say in your hormones too. So, if your gut’s out of whack, it could be messing with your insulin and making PCOS symptoms worse. Who knew, right?

  • Vitamin D Deficiency

Lots of women dealing with PCOS seem to have low levels of vitamin D. Sunshine vitamin plays a big role in how our bodies handle stuff like insulin and inflammation, which are like the troublemakers behind PCOS. So, making sure you are getting enough vitamin D could be a pretty smart move if you are dealing with PCOS, you know? Just something to think about.

  • Thyroid Disorders

It’s not uncommon to see thyroid issues like hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s disease tag along with PCOS. You see, both of these conditions mess with your hormone levels, and when they team up, they can really worsen each other’s symptoms if they are not given some attention.
