Polycystic ovarian syndrome(pcos):-causes,effects,nutition,treatments.

  1. 1. POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME(PCOS) CAUSES,EFFECTS,OLD AND NEW TREATMENTS. ------LALITHA KAVYA
  2. 2. WHAT IS IT??? • PCOD-POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN DISEASE:-ovaries under brunt of pressure and disturbances of the body,therefore not functioning at their peak efficiency. (oops ! Signal to start taking care). • PCOS-POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME:-The Disturbances are now no longer in the ovaries but are manifested in other body parts ( oh! No .Should have taken care )
  3. 3. WHAT IS IT???(SCIENTIFICALLY) • Complex endocrine disorder effecting women(characterized by increased androgen function and ovulatory disfunction). • Ovaries affect the health of the body and the health of our body affects the vibrancy of the ovaries.(confused ???) • Viscious cycle of events cause ovaries to doom ! which are…. ! (lets start with basics!).
  4. 4. THE PERIOD! The “normal cycle” • Day 0-5:- LH,FSH produce follicles (bubbles)in ovary around egg and they produce ‘ESTROGEN’. • Day 6-14:-uterine lining thins , cervix lining is thin and watery , dominant follicle is ready with mature egg. • Day 15(ovulation):-enzyme breaks follicle , mature egg goes to fallopian tubes , uterus full with nutrients , cervix-thinnest. The “pcod/pcos cycle” • Day 0-5:- low/high LH,FSH therefore low chances of healthy follicles and low/no ESTROGEN production . • Day 6-14:-no dominant follicle (no secretion of estrogen in blood),no mature egg. • DAY 15:-Follicle does not break (due to low hormones),immature egg can’t travel to fallopian tubes . uterus,cervix- normal.
  5. 5. Cycle story… The “normal cycle” • Day 16-28( luteal ):-egg starts moving through tube,uterine –thick,cervix – thick. • Egg passes out of uterus ,uterine lining shed, “YES ! PERIOD “ The “ pcod / pcos cycle” • Day 16-28:- egg does not pass through tube as there is no egg in it (obviously !).uterine ,cervix -normal (or rather dry and unhealthy ). • Egg does not pass out of uterus , uterine lining still normal. “NO PERIOD” .

  14. 14. ADVANTAGES • Fast and effective. • Less time(out patient service). • Quick recovery time. • Minimal scarring. • Best way to treat infertility.
