If your hormones are out of balance both your physical and mental health goes out of balance, and this can be more true in women with PCOS than in the case of others. PCOS is an abnormality caused by hormonal imbalance and it can increase a woman’s risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as infertility and uterine cancer. It can also be triggered by genetics combined with environmental factors.Start PCOS Treatment
Genes play a major role when it comes to PCOS. If one or more members of the family are obese, have diabetes or have a history of PCOS, it is likely that this condition will pass on to the next generations. If you are someone who has an excess daily calorie intake or is someone who eats a lot of simple carbohydrates it can lead to insulin resistance and PCOS or vice versa.
Hyperinsulinism and insulin resistance cause your ovaries to release more testosterone, which is very unusual for a woman’s biology. PCOS is mostly harmful to women because it interrupts the process of ovulation, disrupts their menstrual cycle and even in certain cases thickens their uterine wall which is a leading cause of uterine cancer.
PCOS is a hormonal disorder condition in which the ovary produces an abnormal amount of androgens or male sex hormones that are usually found in women in small quantities. The name polycystic ovarian syndrome means numerous small cysts that start growing in the ovary. However, some women who do suffer from this hormonal disorder might not have cysts, and on the other hand, some women without this disorder can develop cysts.
The symptoms of PCOS may include:
The healthy functioning of our body depends on a circuit of hormones, which works night and day to keep you from falling sick. This hormonal circuit consists of the thyroid, the adrenal glands and the reproductive system, which in the case of a woman is the ovary. You will be surprised to know that just your adrenal glands can produce 50 different hormones that regulate your body, which also includes cortisol.
Cortisol, just like many other important hormones when produced in excess quantity, can deplete the resources needed to make enough of the other hormones or cause issues with balancing out the hormones you already have. Excess production of cortisol also causes hair loss, fatigue, PMS, a low libido, exercise intolerance, irregular periods and infertility. And PCOS is the leading cause of excess cortisol production in a woman’s body. Another common symptom of PCOS is disrupted ovulation which eventually causes your progesterone levels to drop. Your hypothalamus gland then tries to stimulate the release of more estrogen and androgens from the ovaries, which can result in high levels of estrogen and androgens, worsening or bringing on AFS and Hormonal Circuit dysfunctions.
