Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder (a condition) that affects many women, it's usually seen in just one out of ten women in their reproductive age. Polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as polycystic anemia, is characterized by the disruption of ovary hormones in women. PCOS has many symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycle, infertility, acne, excess facial or body hair, dandruff, hair loss and sudden weight gain. The severity of the symptoms depends on the amount and severity of your polycystic ovarian syndrome. Treatment of polycystic ovarian disease is based on the type of polycystic ovaries detected. Doctors can achieve successful treatment through surgical removal of ovaries or birth control pills. When surgery is not an option, doctors may try to shrink the cysts using medications. Medications are available to reduce the growth of PCOS tumors. However, treatment for polycystic ovaries varies according to the stage of the disease. PCOS is known to be a common condition and the risk of having children is high. Women with polycystic ovarian disease may experience difficulty in getting pregnant or even infertility. As women with PCOS have lower fertility, they are usually diagnosed as having PCOS before they actually tried to conceive a child. This can be very frustrating for these women and also for the couple who wants to have a baby together. Polycystic ovaries appear due to imbalances in steroid hormones that affect the ovaries. These imbalances occur when the body produces too much androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and or estrogens. The excess hormones will form cysts and eventually grow into full blown ovarian disease. In order to treat PCOS, physicians prescribe hormone therapy such as clomiphene citrate, bromocriptine and metformin. Some of these medications only work if the symptoms of PCOS are severe. Women who are diagnosed with PCOS will most likely be given birth control pills. These pills prevent ovulation by regulating androgen and estrogen levels in the body. This prevents new cysts from developing and new eggs released regularly. Hormonal treatments for polycystic ovarian condition has been effective but it can take months before results can be seen. Surgery is another treatment option for women with PCOS. During surgery, cysts on ovaries are removed. This procedure is called a cystectomy and there are risks involved such as infection, bleeding, scarring, injury to other organs and temporary or permanent infertility. Recovery time after PCOS surgery will depend on how big the ovarian cyst was, as well as the extent of damage caused. The length of recovery will also depend on how well the patient is able to adjust to her new diet and lifestyle.
