PCOS Treatment

What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)?

This condition, also known as Stein-Syndrome, affects countless women worldwide. It involves the growth of cysts on the ovaries, causing disruptions in hormonal balance. Although the cysts themselves are not harmful, if left untreated, PCOS can lead to severe health complications like diabetes and heart disease.

Diagnosing PCOS is more complex than a single test. To determine if you have PCOS, the expert team of doctors at Nimai's Borneo Mother and Child Hospitals will examine your medical history, perform a physical examination, and conduct ultrasound and blood tests. Since symptoms can vary from woman to woman, it is crucial to seek guidance from an experienced doctor who can accurately diagnose your case before devising a suitable treatment plan.

By understanding the complexities of PCOS and seeking proper medical care, women can take control of their health and address any potential risks. Don't let PCOS hold you back – knowledge is power, and with the right support at Nimai's Borneo Mother and Child Hospitals, you can overcome the challenges posed by this condition and live a fulfilling life.

Causes of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

1. Genetics may hold a key role in PCOS:

If your mother or sister has a history of PCOS, it's essential to prioritize regular visits to a PCOS center. By doing so, you can actively address any potential complications and ensure prompt intervention if needed.

2. Hormonal imbalances within your body:

Ordinarily, the ovaries produce a small amount of male sex hormones called androgens. However, in PCOS, these androgen levels may increase slightly, disrupting the delicate hormonal equilibrium. Additionally, insulin resistance, a condition where the body struggles to utilize insulin effectively, can come into play. When insulin is not properly utilized, blood sugar levels rise, increasing the risk of developing diabetes over time.

3. Low-grade inflammation

Your body's white blood cells initiate an inflammatory response to combat infections. Studies suggest that women with PCOS experience this type of low-grade inflammation, which stimulates the production of androgens by polycystic ovaries.By staying informed, seeking professional guidance at Nimai's Borneo Mother and Child Hospitals, and making informed lifestyle choices, we can help you navigate the complexities of PCOS and prioritize your well-being.

Symptoms of PCOS

In the journey of womanhood, we often encounter an array of changes. However, for some, these changes take an unexpected turn, paving the way for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This disorder manifests gradually, making its presence felt during the early teenage years, when menstruation begins.

The impact intensifies further if accompanied by sudden weight gain. While the specific symptoms may vary among women, irregular periods stand out as the most prevalent indication. These irregularities range from scanty or absent periods to heavy and erratic bleeding. These are the frequently observed symptoms:

  • Acne or oily skin
  • Pelvic pain
  • Infertility, caused by improper ovulation or recurring miscarriages
  • Weight gain.
  • Depression or mood swings.
  • Sleep disturbances and breathing difficulties
  • Anxiety

In addition, certain characteristics associated with masculinity may emerge, potentially misconstrued as symptoms of PCOS:

  • Thinning hair
  • Pelvic pain
  • Deepening of the voice
  • Excessive facial and body hair growth, where facial hair becomes thicker and darker, and hair appears on the chest, abdomen, and back
  • Decreased breast size

Remember that if you see any of these symptoms, then feel free to visit Nimai's Borneo Mother and Child Hospitals for the expert consultation and treatment.
