Pcod Problem in Women


PCOD also known as Polycystic Ovarian Disease happens to be a multi-organ disease or health condition which occurs due to hormone imbalances among women. It is also referred to as hyper androgen affected disease, which cannot be cured but can be controlled.

What is Pcod?
Follicles develop and they do not mature into eggs. The follicles do not remain as follicles but turn into cysts. During each menstruation cycle the formation of cysts affect the hormonal imbalance in a woman, thus causing more formation of cysts. This continues as a vicious cycle of formation of cysts. Hormonal imbalances result in disruption in menstrual cycle, which in turn could lead to infertility problems. In fact, Pcod is a major hormonal imbalance among women and a major cause for infertility among them.

In case one never had acne earlier, but is now suffering from it and is also subjected to mood swings and irregular periods, then it is possible that one is suffering from Pcod. One also gains weight.

Women who suffer from Pcod have a higher enzyme activity that causes conversion of testosterone into DHT . This rather sudden increase in DHT hormone can trigger off the sebaceous into expanding further, thus producing more oil and causing acne.
