Today PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is an emerging lifestyle health problem seen in most of the women worldwide.  PCOS can be diagnosed at any age after puberty. However, most women find out they have PCOS in their 20s and 30s when they have problems while in the pregnancy stage.  Hormonal imbalances cause PCOS; hence, it can create many health imbalances other than the multiple cysts health condition in the ovary if not taken care of in the initial stage.

Here are the 7 most common early signs of PCOS.  If you have 2 or more of these signs, it is highly recommended to immediately diagnose the natural root cause after which find an appropriate treatment solution with your doctor to avoid future long-term complications.

1) Irregular monthly cycle

One of the most critical symptoms of having PCOS is having irregular periods.  You could have a fluctuated cycle such as after 16 days, then after 35 days, then after 20 days.  Sometimes it can prolong to 90 days or more too.   You may experience excessive bleeding or occasionally light bleeding or spotting between periods.

Natural treatments can help balance the hormones thus can regulate the periods.

2) Weight gain - Bloated tummy, thighs, hips

Another common sign of PCOS is sudden weight gain.  You may not eat more or exercise less, but you will have a hard time losing some kgs.  Women with PCOS tend to have extra bulging around the waist, tummy, thighs, which never goes if not treated from the root cause, i.e your hormonal imbalance!

If you notice extra weight gain, discuss with our Ayushakti expert doctors to have a customized diet and herbal treatments to control the weight and balance the hormone levels.

3) Facial hair growth

Extra facial or body hair growth is very typical in PCOS.  The increased level of male hormones is the cause of excess hair growth on your cheeks, chin, upper lips, breasts, inner thighs, lower belly, and rarely on other parts of the body. 

4) Hair fall

Hair fall or hair thinning is also a common symptom in PCOS.  Your hair may become thinner all over the head, or sometimes you can experience male pattern hair fall towards your forehead. If you notice such a hair fall pattern, discuss it with your doctor.   Following specific diets or medications can also cause hair fall.

5) Acne and oily skin

Most women from their teen years experience pimples, clogged pores or oily skin. Unfortunately, PCOS can cause these symptoms all the time, no matter whatever creams or toners or other treatments you use for reducing them. 

Specific diet and herbal treatments can reduce oily skin and pimples in the long term.  Consult your Ayushakti doctor for the best advice.

6) Mood swings, stress, and Anxiety

Women with PCOS have higher rates of stress, depression, and Anxiety.  They feel sad, moody, frustrated, and irritable.  Anxiety makes you constantly worried, irritated, exhausted, and feeling restlessness.   Difficulty in concentrating and digestive problems is some of the other symptoms.  If you feel such symptoms, immediately consult your doctor.

Ayushakti’s natural treatments can help get rid of depression and Anxiety from the root through a customized plan as per your need.

7) Difficulty getting pregnant

PCOS is the most common cause of infertility in women. This is because PCOS causes high levels of androgen hormones (male hormones) that can prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation process).  

Taking care of these symptoms in the initial stage itself can help you avoid chronic health problems such as infertility, insulin resistance, thyroid problems etc. from the root.
