What is PCOD?
Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD), Or PCOS is a common condition now affecting most of women in the age group 12–45 years. PCOD is such a problem where woman’s hormones loose their balance. It causes complications like irregular menstrual and also it’s difficult to conceive after marriage.
Basically it includes no ovulation, irregular periods, acne and hirsutism. If not diagnosed at the right time and treated properly it can cause insulin-resistant diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol leading to heart disease.
In females, with Polycystic Ovary Disorder the egg doesn’t mature. Rather than that, there’s several immature eggs that convert into cysts. And just because of the existence of these multiple small cysts in the ovaries, it’s name is ‘polycystic’ and these cysts make hormones called androgens. It’s a type of male hormone, women usually have them pocket-sized amounts but after diagnosed as PCOS they may have a high level of these hormones.
Once in awhile, most females with PCOD issues will have to broaden ovaries with many cysts. Do you know why you miss your periods? Because the egg doesn’t mature and discharge. And that’s why women with PCOD have irregular periods or their periods just stop for the quantity may be less in one month or too much on the other month.
It’s a metabolic state that comes with having cystic ovaries. Women’s who have been diagnosed with PCOD needs to have these.:
Point to be noted: Most of the women with the symptoms mentioned above have a number of small cysts in their ovaries but, not all cyst means PCOD or PCOS, cysts can be of several reasons so it’s better to consult a gynecologist of these sort of symptoms have been noticed.
PCOD/PCOS and Thyroid connected with each other
You may hear that thyroid and PCOS is connected. The issue with PCOS/PCOD and thyroid gland disorders is that their features are frequently the same,
and symptoms may match with the other. As a matter of fact, it is very common for females suffering from thyroid conditions to also have PCOS/PCOD and hence in a way, they may be connected or may not.
In this case I would suggest you should consult an MD(medicine) Doctor and Gynaecologist as well because they’ll be the best person to diagnose the case and understand the reasons, and also tell you whether or not there is any connection. So it is important that you see your doctor if you feel you have any symptoms that may be because of PCOS/PCOD or a thyroid disorder.
