Understanding the difference between PCOD & PCOS

Understanding the difference between PCOD & PCOS

Many women fail to realize the difference between PCOD and PCOS and often use both the terms interchangeably. In reality, both the conditions are different, in spite of the similarities like being related to ovaries and causing hormonal disturbances. Statistics suggest that both these lifestyle disorders are on the rise with 1 in 8 and 1 in 5 suffering from PCOD and PCOS in India. 

Let’s understand the difference between PCOD and PCOS. 

What is PCOD?

Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) is a disease caused by an imbalance of hormones in the reproductive system. The hormonal imbalance leads to excess secretion of male hormones and leads to irregular periods and delayed egg release, which may also turn into cysts. Missed periods or skipping cycles altogether is a common consequence of PCOD and if not treated on time, it can induce side effects like weight gain, acne, hair fall or excess hair growth. 

What is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome is similar to PCOD diagnosis but is an endocrinal problem. Women who suffer from PCOS produce higher than usual levels of androgen (the male hormone) which impacts the monthly ovulation cycle. The period cycles get disrupted and the eggs which form cysts build up in the ovaries and get enlarged in size. It also leads to a change in metabolism, creates an increased risk of obesity, Type-2 diabetes and other chronic health problems. 

How are they different?

Even though they have similar causative factors, PCOD and PCOS are different. PCOS is an endocrinal or metabolic syndrome, which is more serious in nature as compared to PCOD. PCOD is considered temporary and largely happens through hormonal imbalance and can be corrected through a balance of the right diet and exercise. 

What is the treatment suggested to combat PCOS and PCOD?

PCOD is often corrected with the help of the right kind of diet and exercise whereas PCOS involves treatment of several factors causing the syndrome rather than just one. Specific medication and lifestyle changes are advised to fight problems such as obesity, infertility and hirsutism. 

Do they impact pregnancy?

Infertility and problems related to conceiving are some of the biggest shortcomings of both hormonal disorders. Nonetheless, women with PCOD and PCOS are able to get pregnant with the right kind of medical intervention, lifestyle changes which can help to deal with the side-effects of the problem. 

Maintaining a healthy weight, boosting fertility and ovulation naturally can be some of the measures women can adopt for getting pregnant without undergoing problems.

Management of PCOD Through Homeopathy Treatment

Management of PCOD Through Homeopathy Treatment

Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is a hormonal disorder occurring in women. The disorder is also called Stein – Leventhal Syndrome. The name is derived from two American gynacs Michael L Leventhal and Irvin F Stein who described this disease in 1935.

PCOD is a name given to particular set of symptoms that occurs when there are hormonal imbalances in a woman’s body. The symptoms of PCOD include no or late periods, heavy bleeding during periods, growth of facial hair, weight gain, acne, pain in pelvic region and difficulty in getting pregnant.

The disorder occurs between the ages of 18 and 44 and around 5 to 10% of women get affected by the disease. PCOD patients have cysts in their ovaries. The cysts result in hormonal disturbances. Deficiency or excess of a hormone can affect other hormones. In PCOD, the level of androgen is more than normal.

Androgens are male hormones which are present in small quantity in females. When the level increases, it causes late menstruation. The ovulation cycle gets disrupted and ovulation might be delayed or do not happen. Facial hair and hair on other parts of the body start growing in females which are otherwise not present.

The exact cause of PCOD is unknown. It might run in families. Obesity can also cause PCOD. Thus, regular exercise can tend to reduce the symptoms of PCOD in overweight individuals. Diabetes or insulin resistance can also trigger PCOD. The symptoms of PCOD include excess of male hormones, irregular menses, obesity, fertility issues, cysts in ovaries and skin discoloration.

The complications of PCOD are high cholesterol levels, metabolic syndrome, depression, infertility, cancer, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnoea. One should not consume oral contraceptives for treating PCOD. Homeopathy is perhaps the best treatment of PCOD as it cures the root of the disease. Homeopathy restores natural vitality of the body. Once the vitality is restored, the body starts functioning at the normal pace.

The five best homeopathic medicines for the treatment of PCOD are Graphites, Sepia, Pulsatilla, ApisMellifica and Lachesis. The prescription of medicines might differ from person to person and one should not experiment with the medicines on their own. Many other medicines apart from the above-mentioned medicines are also recommended to treat PCOD.
