Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. PCOS is a complex, heterogeneous disorder of uncertain etiology, but there is strong evidence that it can to a large degree be classified as a genetic disease. PCOS is characterized by high levels of androgens, a male hormones particularly testosterone resulting in high levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and low levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) which prevent follicles from producing a mature egg from the ovary and is associated with insulin resistance. Small cysts called poly cysts usually, but not always, surround the ovaries and appear like a strand of pearls on an ultrasound examination. The cysts develop from hormonal imbalances.
Excessive androgen secretions can lead to excess collection of fluid in a thin walled sac like structure of ovary, which further leads for formation of cyst in the ovary.
Mechanism of action:
help toning the muscles of the uterus, balancing the reproductive hormones to stop excessive uterine contractions and optimal endocrine functions to balance the entire hormonal axis naturally, thereby relieving the spasmodic pain.
reduces high levels of androgens and prostaglandin levels in the body and increases the Serotonin levels. Also balances the hormones estrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and progesterone.
