Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal problem in reproductive years. A woman with PCOS has more androgen in the body, a male hormone. Your periods will be irregular. Sometimes you may have periods more often, or you may have periods on a different basis. When you have PCOS, cysts appear on the ovary's outer edge. These cysts contain immature eggs, which are called follicles. Follicles cannot release eggs regularly. Although the cause of PCOS is unknown, early diagnosis and treatment can give a good result.
Treatment of PCOS
Treatment methods for PCOS depend on various symptoms and causes. The treatment includes changes in lifestyle and medications.
You may have to control your diet to reduce weight, and you may also have to do some exercises to keep the weight under control. Even 5% of body weight losses may also have a good impact.
You may have to take the following medications to regulate your periods.
Birth control pills
Your healthcare provider prescribes pills that help to reduce the production of androgen and regulate estrogen.
You can regulate your periods by taking progestin for 10 to 14 days every 1 to 2 months. It also protects against endometrial cancer.
Fibroids are the growth of the uterus that appears in the childbearing years. The development is non-cancerous, and Fibroids do not threaten cancer risk.
Treatment of Fibroids
Treatment methods for fibroids include medications or MRI-guided surgery.
Medications are used to regulate the hormones to regulate the menstrual cycle. Some medicines include Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists that prevent the production of estrogen and progesterone. Tranexamic acid is also used to avoid heavy menstrual bleeding.
This method is performed to destroy the small areas of the fibroid, and it can be done without incision. This method is used when you are inside an MRI scanner that is equipped with an ultrasound transducer. It helps the doctor to find the exact location of the uterine fibroids, which can be destroyed by the sound waves of the ultrasound transducer.
