Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age. The name of the condition comes from the appearance of the ovaries in most, but not all, women with the disorder — enlarged and containing numerous small cysts located along the outer edge of each ovary (polycystic appearance).
Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome. In adolescents, infrequent or absent menstruation may signal the condition. In women past adolescence, difficulty becoming pregnant or unexplained weight gain may be the first sign.
The exact cause of polycystic ovary syndrome is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment may reduce the risk of long-term complications, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Polycystic ovary syndrome signs and symptoms often begin soon after a woman first begins having periods (menarche). In some cases, PCOS develops later on during the reproductive years, for instance, in response to substantial weight gain.
Signs and symptoms vary from person to person, in both type and severity. To be diagnosed with the condition, your doctor looks for at least two of the following:
When to see a doctor?

Having polycystic ovary syndrome makes the following conditions more likely, especially if obesity also is a factor:
There’s no specific test to definitively diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome. The diagnosis is one of exclusion, which means your doctor considers all of your signs and symptoms and then rules out other possible disorders.
During this process, your doctor takes many factors into account:
Homeopathy is very effective to treat Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), if homeopathy is practiced at its highest standards and the patient has a good compliance. In order to prescribe, I take the complete history of the patient including physical, mental and emotional to form a “whole”, which represents a state of imbalance very specific to the individual.
My goal is to recognize, through the unique expression of symptoms of the patient, the pattern of disturbed energy and identify among a great number of remedies available, the one most similar to the patient’s disease to spark the healing process. Homeopathy is a medicine of the individual rather than a standard medical protocol.
