PCOD (Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease) or PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) is a disease characterized by multiple (‘poly’) cysts (small sacs filled with fluid) in the ovaries.
Patients with PCOD/PCOS have abnormal levels of hormones that result in irregular menses, infertility and certain masculine changes in the body.
What are causative factors for PCOD/PCOS?
PCOD/PCOS problems are caused by hormone changes. One hormone change triggers another, which changes another level of hormone.
Raised levels of Testosterone– Androgens or “male hormones,” although all women make small amounts of androgens…Higher than normal levels of androgen in women can prevent the ovaries from releasing an egg during each menstrual cycle.
Raised levels of Luteinising Hormone (LH)– This is due to increased production from the anterior pituitary.
Low levels of Sex Hormone-Binding Globulin (SHBG)– A protein in the blood, which binds to testosterone and decreases the effect of testosterone.
Raised levels of Prolactin –This is the hormone that stimulates the breast glands to produce milk during pregnancy.
