Polycyst ovaries - Any suggestions

Postby nidsri » Thu, 05 Jan 2006 3:38 pm

This is for ladies.

Doctors told me that I have minor polycystic ovaries.

Any idea what precautions I need to take and how can it be cured.

I heard this sometimes causes problem in getting pregnant.

Does anyone has come across any such cases?

There are plenty of medical literature online on PCOS. a close friend of mine recently had it. The doctor said it's minor only and put her on 4 months of birth control pills to cease ovulation and to allow time for the ovaries to decongest.

After her 4 months, the scans showed her ovaries had cleared up. It is strange how it can suddenly occur but the doc said my friend's case might be due to stress.

More serious conditions- they stop ovulating, maybe only have periods 1 or 2 times a year. Drs will also perscribe birth control pills but you have to keep taking it if you want your periods to come every month.

As for conceiving, there is still a chance you can conceive, but you might need assistance to ovulate- i.e using ovulation inducing medication etc.

Well I do have this problem. Irregular menses, sometimes once every three months and very bad cramp till I'm not able to get up.

Went to gynae and found I have Polycystic ovary and that caused me having irregular menses and difficulties getting pregnant because of not ovulating.

I'm sure u are aware that Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hidden hormonal imbalance. The result of too much testosterone and an inability to control blood sugar levels, it is inherited and there is no cure. The symptoms are unexplained weight gain, excess facial hair, adult acne, and infertility - and the associated risks are worse.

A woman with PCOS is, according to researchers, seven times more likely to develop diabetes than a woman of the same age and lifestyle who does not have the syndrome. She is also now known to be 7.4 more times at risk of a heart attack and four times more likely to suffer from high blood pressure. The first two of these conditions are major killers in the Western world.

A friend then recommended me Spirulina and now my problems are totally solved. Its not medicine. Its a food supplement which have all the 5 major nutrients which also includes essential and non-essential Amino Acid that our body needed daily as we do not get enough from food.

Most important is that its richness in gamma linolenic acid which we cannot make in our body, prevent high blood pressure, controls cholesterol in blood and likely to have a favourable effect of alleviating heart disease, helps ease symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome by promoting the production of prostate glandine hormones.
It also contains plant sterols found to enhance hormone balance.
Spirulina is also a source of complete protein (essential amino acids which body cannot produce plus non-essential ones) which helps to control blood glucose levels.

It really helps too when I'm expecting in controlling my glucose level. So till today I'm still taking it, not only that now my whole family including my boy is taking it to improve health in general.
