Doctor Speak I PCOS I Dr. Rachna Singh

Dr. Rachna Singh, expert obstetrician and gynaecologist talks about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome/Disorder (PCOS/PCOD). This is the most common endocrinopathy which has been observed in women of reproductive age, usually prevalent between 18-45-years. Every 1 out of 10 females suffers with PCOS. There is no specific reason behind PCOS, though elevated insulin resistance is noticeable in these cases. Usually, the problems are weight gain, facial hair, acne or complaints related to periods. There are two ways to diagnose PCOS – ultrasonic finds of polycystic ovary or irregular/no periods and facial hairs or higher blood sugar. If any two of the symptoms are visible, then PCOS can be suspected. The treatment follows as per the condition. A common treatment is OCP (Oral Contraceptive Pill), with or without hormonal therapy.
