Ayurvedic Treatment for PCOS and Infertility in Women
Dr.Ajay Krishna P B.A.M.S
In PCOS, the ovaries make too much of a hormone called androgen. This hormone stops eggs from maturing properly, leading to issues with egg release. This can make it harder for a woman to get pregnant. PCOS is often seen in women of reproductive age.
The ovaries in PCOS are bigger than usual and have many small cysts (fluid-filled sacs). This makes the ovaries look different from normal. People with PCOS might have irregular periods, along with signs like Hirsutism , acne, Hair Fall. Obesity and difficulty getting pregnant due to irregular ovulation are also common.
Overall, PCOS is a condition that affects how a woman’s body handles hormones and can cause various symptoms like irregular periods, excess hair, and fertility problems.
In Ayurveda, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is linked to an imbalance in the Kapha dosha. Ayurveda sees three doshas as vital role in the female menstrual cycle. Vata dosha moves ovarian follicles, Pitta dosha affects hormones, and Kapha dosha nourishes.
PCOS in Ayurveda happens when excessive Kapha disrupts Vata and Pitta. This begins by affecting digestion, causing impurities to accumulate, leading to toxins in the body. Cysts form due to these impurities in plasma and blood tissues.
The dosha imbalance, especially Kapha overpowering Vata and Pitta, upsets hormones and nutrient supply to follicles. This leads to
- Irregular periods
- Hormonal imbalance
- Ovarian cysts.
In most of the cases, PCOS is identified after initial ignoring to early symptoms, eventually progressing to infertility.
