HYPERANDROGENIC ANOVULATION (PCOS) AND IT’S NATURAL TREATMENT IN NIGERIA

HYPERANDROGENIC ANOVULATION (PCOS)  DEFINITION Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition characterized by the accumulation ofnumerous cysts (fluid-filled sacs) on the ovaries associated with high male hormone levels,chronic anovulation (absent ovulation), and other metabolic disturbances. Classic symptoms include excess facial and body hair, acne, obesity, irregular menstrual cycles, and infertility. DESCRIPTION PCOS, also called Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is a group of symptoms caused by underlyinghormonal and metabolic disturbances that affect about 6% of premenopausal women. PCOSsymptoms appear as early as adolescence in the form of amenorrhea (missed periods), obesity, and hirsutism, the abnormal growth of body hair. A disturbance in normal hormonal signals prevents ovulation in women with PCOS. Throughoutthe cycle, estrogen levels remain steady, luteinizing hormone (LH) levels are high, and follidestimulating hormone (FSH) and progesterone levels are low. Since eggs are rarely or never released from their follicles, multiple ovarian cysts develop over time. One of the most important characteristics of PCOS is hyperandrogenism, the excessiveproduction of male hormones (androgens), particularly testosterone, by the ovaries. This accounts for the male hair-growth patterns and acne in women with PCOS. Hyperandrogenism has been linked with insulin resistance (the inability of the body to respond to insulin) andhyperinsulinemia (high blood insulin levels), both of which are common in PCOS.   WHO GETS POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME? (AGE AND SEX DISTRIBUTION) Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome affects females in their reproductive ages (between 12-45 years old). Typically, the signs and symptoms occur during the teenage years The condition is observed worldwide; […]

ANOVULATION AND IT’S NATURAL TREATMENT IN NIGERIA

WHAT IS ANOVULATION? Anovulation means lack of ovulation, or absent ovulation. Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. This must happen in order to achieve pregnancy naturally. If ovulation is irregular, but not completely absent, this is called oligo-ovulation. Both anovulation and oligo-ovulation are kinds of ovulatory dysfunction. Ovulatory dysfunction is a common cause of […]
