In India recently, an increasing number of women have been suffering from PCOS or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. According to medical experts, especially gynecologists', more awareness is needed in this regard. The doctors say it is not a matter of panic; with proper precautions, diet, and lifestyle modifications, you can easily prevent and manage PCOS.

More than 20% of Indian women are now suffering from PCOS. Dr. Duru Shah, the founder of the PCOS society in India, says "PCOS is not a disease but a serious health condition. We need to shed some light on this issue; otherwise, it might negatively impact Indian women's health." 

What is PCOS? 

PCOS is a condition where a woman's reproductive health is affected the most. The ovaries produce fewer female hormones (oestrogen) and more male hormones (androgen) in this condition. As a result, women start skipping periods, gaining extra weight, facial and body hair, hair loss on the scalp, etc.

Also, most women face hindrances while trying to get pregnant. Unfortunately, most women are diagnosed with PCOS in childbearing age (18-44). Almost 25% of women who belongs to this age group have PCOS. Doctors that nearly 70% of women are not even aware that they have PCOS.

 Causes 

Till date, doctors can't discover one particular reason for PCOS. The source of PCOS starts with male and female hormonal disbalances. But there will be a shower of explanation if we try to find out all the reasons behind such an occurrence.

But there are a few common causes for PCOS: 

Genetics: Sometimes, genes matter a lot in a few cases. If PCOS runs in your family, then you also might catch it quickly. In this case, the only way out is to take precautions and preventions from an earlier age.  

Messy lifestyle: A messy lifestyle with a lot of coffee shots and junk food- that's the main villain of your movie. In this fast technical world, we have completely forgotten about our health. Our laptops and mobile screens have snatched the essence of our sedentary lifestyle. Sometimes, eating a lot of carbs, caffeine, red meat, and inadequate sleep trigger hormonal imbalances resulting in PCOS.

Obesity: Being overweight or obese is one of the most prominent reasons for having PCOS. Obesity can also run in genes, but sometimes it may happen due to food habits or past medical history.

Taking stress/ anxiety: Taking too much stress or tension instigates cortisol of stress hormone secretion. The cortisol hormone prevents the ovaries from producing enough amount of estrogen.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
