Don’t ignore that skin disorder. It could be a gynecological problem

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a gynecological disorder that occurs in women of reproductive age. Its prevalence is increasing in our society and incidence of PCOS is higher among amongst young, obese females and possibly lifestyle-related. The menstrual disorder manifests itself physically as acne, pimples and abnormal male type hair growth. Instead of treating the underlying root cause, women appear more concerned with treating their skin disorders. This kind of approach, most often, fails to produce sustainable improvements in health. If you are experiencing PCOS symptoms, I would recommend a proper investigation including:
  • Ultrasound scan
  • Estimation of blood sugars, insulin level & male hormones
  • A consult with a gynecologist to help confirm PCOS and plan a medication program to treat both the skin and menstrual problems.
