PCOS Awareness Month

Polycystic ovary syndrome, commonly known as PCOS, is a prevalent endocrinopathy condition in women. Statistics have shown that while PCOS can affect a female body as soon as it starts going through puberty, it has been more commonly affecting ages 20 to 30 years old. And the specific cause of why PCOS happens is still not yet known.

However, PCOS affects a wide range of women, almost 20% of the global population at this point. That’s why early diagnosis of PCOS is crucial so that patients know how to manage their lifestyle around this condition and not further exasperate the associated complication. PCOS being a multifactorial condition, can have many challenging symptoms that one has to deal with.

Brief Insight: PCOS & It Symptoms

Recently, PCOS has become a common cause of infertility among women, affecting more than 5 million US females of reproductive age. However, there is a lot more to this condition that goes unnoticed as it doesn’t happen as apparently as infertility. For instance, one of the major symptoms of PCOS is an irregular menstrual cycle and excessive body hair.

Moreover, weight gain, metabolic issues, thinning of scalp hair, and acne can take a severe toll on the mental and overall health of the patient. Many people also don’t realize that PCOS can lead to other severe health conditions, like high blood pressure and diabetes, that have their own life-altering challenges.

The Use of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture in PCOS

Over the years, many experts have shown ways to deal with and treat PCOS, but little to no difference has been seen. However, Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM is one of the most known treatment options, especially for female reproductive health and conditions like PCOS and infertility.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, PCOS is attributed to a poor metabolism deficiency that may or may not cause cysts to develop. As TCM is the only treatment option that approaches PCOS as a systematic condition rather than an isolated disorder, holistic, objective-based treatment procedures like acupuncture have shown amazing results in helping treat PCOS and infertility.
