The leading hormones responsible for women’s health are estrogen, progesterone and prolactin.

How does Ayurveda Explain PCOS ?

In Ayurveda, PCOS is termed a Kapha dosha disorder. Even though women governed by Kapha dosha are said to be active, in case of Kapha imbalance in the body, problems of weight gain, fluid retention, allergies and fatigue among others can occur. Kapha imbalance in the body is also rooted in diabetes, depression, asthma and excessive sleep.
Ayurveda lays down numerous methods, medicines and measures to permanently cure diseases and prevent future reoccurrence.


Cause of PCOS?

PCOS happens when a hormonal imbalance act on follicular growth during the ovarian cycle. Instead of breaking and releasing an egg, the affected ovarian follicle remains in the ovary. The follicle then forms into cysts, and multiple new cysts can arise during each ovarian cycle.
So ‘Poly’ signifies many, hence the name goes like polycystic ovarian syndrome.

How to prevent PCOS?

PCOS is not curable with Western medicine. Hormonal therapy and birth control tablets are common treatments for PCOS, and they lend a hand to regulate your periods and boost fertility. <>Moreover, several cosmetic treatments may be used to eliminate unwanted hair.
