Unraveling PCOS: Symptoms and Treatment Options, Expert Insights by Dr. Chandrakala Vatkar at Adilife Polyclinic




Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common hormonal disorder that affects women during their reproductive years. Dr. Chandrakala Vatkar, a renowned specialist at Adilife Polyclinic, recognizes the significance of addressing PCOS symptoms and offering effective treatment options. In this article, we’ll explore the symptoms of PCOS, its impact, and the expert guidance provided by Dr. Vatkar for managing this condition.



Understanding PCOS Symptoms:


PCOS is characterized by a combination of hormonal imbalances that can result in a range of symptoms:


  1. Irregular Menstrual Cycles: Women with PCOS may experience infrequent or irregular menstrual periods due to irregular ovulation.
  1. Ovulatory Dysfunction: Some women with PCOS may not ovulate regularly or at all, leading to fertility challenges.
  1. Hyperandrogenism: Elevated levels of androgens (male hormones) can lead to symptoms such as acne, excessive facial or body hair (hirsutism), and male-pattern baldness.
  1. Polycystic Ovaries: The ovaries may contain multiple small cysts, although not all women with PCOS have visible cysts.
  1. Insulin Resistance: PCOS is associated with insulin resistance, which can lead to weight gain, increased risk of diabetes, and difficulty losing weight.

Treatment Options for PCOS:


  1. Lifestyle Modifications:

   – Maintaining a healthy weight through balanced nutrition and regular exercise can help manage PCOS symptoms and improve insulin sensitivity.


  1. Oral Contraceptives:

   – Birth control pills can regulate menstrual cycles and reduce androgen levels, alleviating symptoms like acne and hirsutism.


  1. Anti-Androgen Medications:

   – Medications that reduce androgen levels can help manage symptoms such as hirsutism and hair loss.


  1. Fertility Treatments:

   – Women trying to conceive can benefit from medications that induce ovulation, such as clomiphene citrate or letrozole.


  1. Insulin-Sensitizing Medications:

   – Certain medications can improve insulin sensitivity, helping to manage weight and reduce the risk of diabetes.


  1. Laser Hair Removal:

   – For unwanted hair growth, procedures like laser hair removal can be effective.
