What Is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is the most common endocrine disease in women of reproductive age. The syndrome is called after the characteristic cysts which may form on the ovaries, though it is important to note that this is a symptom and not the underlying reason for the disease. A review of the international proof found that the prevalence of PCOS could be as high as 26% among some populations; however, this figure has been reported as being between 4% and 18% in general.

What Causes PCOS?

The actual reason for PCOS isn't known. Characteristics that might play a role include:

Excess insulin: - Insulin is the hormone produced in the pancreas that allows cells to use sugar, your body's primary energy supply. If cells become immune to the activity of insulin, then your blood sugar levels can rise and your body might make more insulin. Excess insulin might improve androgen production, causing difficulty with ovulation.

Low-grade inflammation: - Low-grade inflammation is used to describe white blood cells' production of importance to fight infection. Research has indicated that women with PCOS have a type of low-grade inflammation that produces polycystic ovaries to produce androgens, which can lead to compassion and blood vessel problems.

Heredity: - Research indicates that specific genes might be linked to PCOS.

Excess androgen: -The ovaries make abnormally high levels of androgen, resulting in hirsutism and acne.

The primary features of this syndrome include hyperandrogenism, anovulation, insulin resistance, and neuroendocrine disruption.

Management Of PCOS

The primary treatments for PCOS include lifestyle changes and the use of medications. Goals of treatment may be considered under four categories:

  • Lowering of insulin resistance levels
  • Restoration of fertility
  • Treatment of hirsutism or acne
  • Restoration of regular menstruation, and prevention of endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial cancer


General interventions that help to reduce weight or insulin resistance can be beneficial for all these aims because they address what is believed to be the underlying cause.  As PCOS appears to cause significant emotional distress, appropriate support may be useful.

Mental Health during PCOS

Although women with PCOS are far more likely to have depression than women without, the evidence for anti-depressant use in women with PCOS remains inconclusive. However, the pathophysiology of depression and mental stress during PCOS is linked to various changes including psychological changes such as the high activity of pro-inflammatory markers and immune system during stress.

Diet and nutrition

In cases Where PCOS is associated with overweight or obesity; successful weight loss is the most effectual way of restoring normal ovulation/menstruation. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists approaches recommends a goal of achieving 5 to 15% weight loss or more, which enhances insulin resistance and all hormonal diseases. However, many women find it very difficult to gain and sustain significant weight loss.

Insulin-resistance itself can cause improved food cravings and lower energy levels which can make it difficult to lose weight on a routine weight-loss diet. A scientific review in 2013 found similar decreases in weight and body composition and improvements in pregnancy rate, menstrual regularity, ovulation, hyperandrogenism, insulin resistance, lipids, and quality of life to ensure with weight loss separate of diet composition. Still, a low GI diet, in which a significant part of total carbohydrates are obtained from fruit, vegetables, and whole-grain sources, has resulted in more effective menstrual regularity than a macronutrient-matched healthy diet.

Vitamin D deficiency may play some role in the development of the metabolic syndrome, so treatment of any such deficiency is indicated

A 2017 review concluded that both Myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositols may regulate menstrual cycles and improve ovulation. A 2012 and 2017 review has found Myo-inositol supplementation appears to be effective in improving several of the hormonal disturbances of PCOS.
