Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormone disorder common among women of reproductive age; like most hormonal imbalances, many unpleasant symptoms like irregular periods accompany it, unintended weight gain, increased acne—the list goes on and on.
In addition to the difficult symptoms of excessive body weight and facial hair that PCOS sufferers face, there is also a sign on the other side of that coin: Unexpected loss of hair. Androgenic alopecia, also known as hair loss or thinning, is commonly associated with PCOS.
What you need to know about PCOS and hair loss, including why it occurs, what you can do about it, and the support groups for people who experience it, can be found in the following information.
What is PCOS?
The overproduction of androgens by the ovaries is what causes PCOS. Androgens, like testosterone, are made by people of both sexes. But men typically make more androgens than women do. Androgens start hair growth in the pubic and underarm areas and are involved in the onset of puberty.
Also, PCOS can cause multiple cysts in the ovaries in some women, but it can also cause no cysts.
Cysts emerge from the ovary during ovulation and form when an egg does not mature.
After that, the cysts produce too much androgen hormone, which causes several other symptoms in addition to hair loss, such as:
- Skin tags
- Excessive sebum (oil) on the skin
- Irregular menstrual bleeding
- Excess body hair growth
- Weight gain
Ayurveda Perspective on PCOS
Ayurveda examines any illness in terms of an imbalance of Dosha. Ayurveda classifies PCOS as a Kapha disorder. Arthava dhatu is a tissue that is responsible for reproduction in the female body. The channel that transports reproduction fluid is known as the artavavaha srota. PCOS develops when an excess of Kapha interferes with the normal circulation of these fluids and channels. Blood flow is blocked, metabolism is reduced, and PCOS symptoms can develop.
Lifestyle and inappropriate diet choices, including mental stress and inactivity, as well as long-term and over-consumption of hormone contraceptives, are among the major factors in PCOS.
Why Does PCOS Cause Hair Loss?
Hormones are everything here. Because PCOS is associated with testosterone levels that are higher than normal, PCOS can cause hair loss. Androgenic alopecia is the condition that causes women to lose hair in the frontal and temporal areas of their scalp. That is distinct from male-pattern baldness, characterized by a head’s thinning crown and a receding hairline.
However, hair loss is not as common a PCOS side effect as excessive hair growth. This is because to experience that kind of hair loss, your androgen levels need to be quite high. If you have PCOS, your body will make more androgens, making more hair grow on your face, neck, chest, and torso.
What Can You Do About Hair Loss Caused By PCOS?
With this particular type of hair loss, certain treatments may be able to stimulate hair growth again. But remember that patience is crucial, regardless of the treatment you and your healthcare provider select.
Be realistic about your expectations, and remember that it could take up to six months for your hair to change and grow. This is because, regardless of the circumstances, the hair growth cycle is not rapid and takes several months.

Ayurveda’s Approach to PCOS Management
Ayurveda takes a comprehensive approach to PCOS management. Individualized treatment aims to restore body balance and address the disease’s root cause.
The following are the guidelines for PCOS treatment in Ayurveda:
The first line of treatment for PCOS is Panchkarma, an ayurvedic body detoxification that strengthens and rejuvenates the female reproductive system, corrects hormonal imbalances, and manages obesity and insulin resistance. After a thorough consultation, an ayurvedic specialist creates a bespoke plan.
By eliminating toxins from the reproductive system, panchkarma addresses the underlying cause:
Hormones are balanced, and the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and vagina are cleansed.
Virechan (therapeutic purgation), Uttar Basti (uterovaginal enema), and Basti (colonic enema) are some of the most common procedures.
Special herbs and procedures restore harmony and vitality to the female reproductive system following the panchkarma. The phytoestrogens found in Ayurvedic herbs can significantly reduce inflammation and insulin resistance.
