Understanding Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) & How to Manage It – Heal at Healthville
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, also known as PCOS, is a complex women’s ailment that can significantly affect the quality of life. PCOS impacts a woman’s ability to conceive and maintain pregnancy. It also negatively impacts a woman’s self-esteem by creating conditions of obesity, high issues, acne and more. Not only the individuals who have not been diagnosed with this condition but also individuals who have been diagnosed with PCOS, sadly, there is a huge lack of awareness and understanding of PCOS among people. Whether it’s due to the lack of research in PCOS, lack of attention due to the gender bias in the medical industry, or complexity associated with the name of the condition itself, multiple unpopular scenarios have constantly been pushing this lack of awareness further to the unwanted new heights.
False Implications Associated with PCOS
Contrary to the name Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, the condition doesn’t develop in ovaries, and it’s not even related to ovaries either. It’s a metabolic condition occurred due to insulin resistance and high systemic androgens. A PCOS ovary develops immature follicles due to hormonal imbalance, which will not mature and ovulate.
