A woman with polycystic ovaries will stop menstruating or will menstruate erratically.She will gain weight, eventually becoming obese, and she may develop excessive amounts of facial or body hair (hirsutism).Women diagnosed with this disorder frequently have a mother or sister(s) with similar symptoms commonly associated with PCOD. However, there is not currently enough evidence to prove a genetic linkage of the disease. Conception is frequently possible with proper surgical or medicinal treatments. Following conception, pregnancy is normally uneventful.
The Symptoms are menstrual periods; abnormal, irregular, or scanty (oligomenorrhea), absent menses (amenorrhea), usually (but not always) after having one or more normal menstrual periods during puberty (secondary amenorrhea), obesity, infertility, increased hair growth (hirsutism), decreased breast size, aggravation of acne, unusual growth and distribution of body hair in a male pattern (virilization)
In homoeopathy medicines like Apis , Platina, Iod, Thuja, Spongia, are used for the treatment. The proper analysis of the case with the qualified homoeopathic physician will give the better results.
It has been suggested that routine screening be done to detect early deterioration of bone mass in post menopausal women, but there is not yet a recommended guideline. Early detection would allow early intervention and could prevent some fractures and complications associated with osteoporosis.
