Menstrual irregularity, acne, excessive hair growth on the body, and obesity indicates you suffer from Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome. If you observe sudden development of such symptoms in your body, then probably you have PCOS. Well, the exact cause of the state of illness is not known but this disease can be irritating for females. It can affect daily routine in women.
But do you know what exactly happens in PCOS? If not, then note that in PCOS the levels of male hormones or androgens increase in your body. It prevents the ovaries from producing hormones and releasing eggs. Under normal circumstances, your body must make eggs regularly enabling you to have smooth monthly cycles and getting pregnant.
Let us now see the possible cause of females suffering from PCOS:
- Reduced capacity to use insulin by your body, that is, when your body can’t use insulin properly. The pancreas produces insulin to absorb the sugar from the food you eat. But when the body can’t use it properly, then your body increases demand. Higher demand exerts ovaries to produce more male hormones.
- Sometimes, PCOS occurs because it is genetic. If the disease runs in your family, most probably you will also have it.
Females who have PCOS, find it hard to conceive a child because it affects the ability to ovulate. If you are affected by PCOS, then you must visit a gynecologist as early as possible.
