What is the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

The Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is the most common hormonal disorder of the modern woman. It is estimated that one in fifteen women between 20-40 years old suffers from this syndrome, while one in three women has at least one of the hormonal symptoms that refer to it! The polycystic ovarian syndrome is a group of symptoms with varying degrees in their manifestation and is associated with ovarian dysfunction. It is a series of complex processes or a combination of morphological and histological changes of the ovaries leading to endocrine disorders. This creates the complexity and the difficulty both in the causal and to the therapeutic approach. Theories that have been developed vary and refer to the entire endocrine system. Finally, it could be considered a condition with familial status since it usually occurs in girls of the same family.

  • Menstruation disorders: irregular or absent menstruation.

What are the symptoms of polycystic ovaries?

The symptoms associated with the syndrome are usually typical. The scientific community has accepted that when a woman has two of the following symptoms, then she is considered to have polycystic ovarian syndrome.

  • Polycystic morphology of the ovaries substantiated by ultrasonographic criteria.

Is there a cure for polycystic ovaries?

Treatment of the syndrome aims to protect women from the constant action of oestrogen and therefore the increased risk of endometrial and breast carcinoma in the future. In women who do not wish a pregnancy, the appropriate treatment is the administration of birth control pills and when it coexists with hirsutism, antiandrogens will be jointly administered. Women who desire to become pregnant are prescribed a specialist pharmaceutical treatment which enhances the growth of ovarian follicles and hence ovulation. Surgical treatment of the syndrome is also an acceptable method of use and is usually conducted laparoscopically.
