Recently, more and more women are suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome. The disease itself is painful, but it can lead to more serious illness, so caution is needed. Online health professional media Web MD said that polycystic ovary syndrome could lead to more dangerous health problems such as heart disease and diabetes if not treated.
Web MD noted that "polycystic ovary syndrome occurs because women's hormones lose balance." This can affect the menstrual cycle and can cause pregnancy problems.
What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
Polycystic ovary syndrome can cause the growth of ovarian cysts. Cysts are not harmful but cause hormonal imbalance. Once the hormonal balance has collapsed, it can not act as a chemical messenger to the body. If one hormone's function changes, other hormones can change.
The cause of polycystic ovary syndrome is as follows. Web MD noted that if a woman's family has polycystic ovary syndrome, the woman is more likely to get polycystic ovary syndrome. If one of the family members of the family has menstrual irregularity or diabetes, it can also cause polycystic ovary syndrome.
The symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome are initially light. The number of symptoms varies from person to person. There may be problems with acne, weight gain or weight loss, hair growth on the face and body, thinning of the scalp, or depression. Polycystic ovarian syndrome affects pregnancy because it interferes with women's ovulation.
WebMD said, "Regular exercise, healthy food, and weight control are the primary treatments for polycystic ovary syndrome." Your doctor may prescribe birth control pills to treat your symptoms. Patients should be examined by a doctor for follow-up and see if medication is effective. It may also need to be regularly examined for diabetes, high blood pressure and other health problems.
