What is PCOS?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome or PCOS is the hormonal disorder in females of reproductive age. It is the condition in which female ovaries tend to make more of the male hormones as compared to female hormones. If the condition is not treated on time, it can lead to serious problems like type 2 diabetes, obesity, infertility etc. Women suffering from PCOS may have irregular, infrequent or prolonged menstrual cycles and excess male hormone (androgen) levels leading to abnormal hair growth.

Polycystic Ovarian Disorder or PCOD is the condition in which ovaries contain many partially mature or immature eggs, which eventually turn into cysts. Junk food, obesity, stress and hormonal imbalance can give birth to this condition. Common symptoms of PCOD are similar to those of PCOS.

Treatment of PCOD/PCOS


There is no specific test to diagnose the condition of PCOS or PCOD. The gynecologist will initially ask for medical history and will indulge in physical diagnosis. The gynecologist may ask the duration of weight gain, your menstrual periods and other related factors. The tests recommended by the gynecologist are mentioned below. Not all tests are required, the gynecologist will mention the tests required for a particular patient.

  • Physical Exams: This is done in order to check the signs of any excess hair growth, excess insulin, and acne.
  • Pelvic Exam (in sexually active females): The doctor will examine the reproductive organs of the patient for any abnormalities.
  • Blood tests: The gynecologist may suggest checking hormone levels, glucose tolerance, fasting cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
  • Ultrasound: Abdominal or Vaginal scan is done to check the appearance of the ovaries and thickness of the lining of the uterus.

An effective approach to managing PCOS can help you reduce the symptoms and the severity of the condition. Here are the lifestyle habits that you need to take care of to manage your PCOS.

Can you get pregnant with PCOS?

There’s no denying that getting pregnant for a woman who has PCOS is tough, but there is hope. Women with PCOS may have to make lifestyle and dietary changes while many others still conceive naturally without having to depend on any fertility drugs. The chances and possibilities differ from case to case. Women with PCOS have a high level of male hormones in their body which makes it difficult for them to ovulate. If ovulation does not take place, there is no chance for the egg to get fertilized by sperm. This is the main reason why it is tough to get pregnant with PCOS. Women with PCOS also suffer from obesity which cuts down their chances of conceiving. But, with medical advances and timely treatment, getting pregnant with PCOS is possible. With proper medical treatment, the chances of a woman getting pregnant with PCOS can increase to 80%. In case fertility drugs and lifestyle changes fail to provide effective results, gynecologists may recommend undergoing IVF treatment for a successful pregnancy. Many women get confused between PCOS and PCOD. In spite of the similarities in terms of hormonal imbalance, both conditions are different from each other. In basic understanding, PCOS is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and PCOD is Polycystic Ovarian Disease. In PCOS, the ovaries produce a higher level of male hormones than what is needed. As such the woman faces problems in ovulation and suffers from irregular menstruation. The male hormones also interfered with the development of the eggs which are released. In many cases, the eggs turn into cysts which get enlarged with time. In PCOD, the ovaries make male hormones in less amount but release a huge number of immature eggs. The eggs often turn into cysts leading to further complications in the body. However, in both cases, the woman experiences symptoms such as irregular periods, male pattern hair loss, facial hair growth, weight gain etc. The similarity of the symptoms makes it difficult for women to distinguish whether it is PCOS or PCOD. But with the help of a thorough diagnosis by an experienced gynecologist, it can easily be understood if the condition is PCOS or PCOD.
