PCOS/PCOD And Female Hair Loss

The statistics are that Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects 5-10% of women of childbearing age, but the numbers should be much higher because the condition often goes unrecognized and undiagnosed. The current diets and lifestyles are making the condition more prevalent. Higher than normal blood sugar levels interfere with normal egg development each month.

The use of placing the scalp is a tissue where the original blood supply is shifted to the place where the porcess has been stopped or it has become low.

Hormone Imbalances Associated With PCOS

  • An irregular or no menstrual cycle or scanty flow
  • There may or may not be many small cysts in ovaries
  • Heavy painful periods
  • Pelvic pain
  • Lack of ovulation
  • Excessive hair on face and body
  • Acne
  • Obesity
  • Hair Loss

What Causes Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)?

No one is quite sure what causes PCOS, and it is likely to be the result of a number of both genetic (inherited) as well as environmental factors. Women with PCOS often have a mother or sister with the condition, and researchers are examining the role that genetics or gene mutations might play in its development. The ovaries of women with PCOS frequently contain a number of small cysts, hence the name poly=many cystic ovarian syndrome. A similar number of cysts may occur in women without PCOS. Therefore, the cysts themselves do not seem to be the cause of the problem.

A disturbance in the body's blood sugar control system (insulin system) is common in women with PCOS, who often have insulin resistance and elevated blood insulin levels, and researchers believe that these abnormalities may be related to the development of PCOS. It is also known that the ovaries of women with PCOS produce excess amounts of male hormones or androgens. This excessive production of male hormones may be caused by the abnormalities in insulin production.

PCOS and Its Associated Hair Loss Can Be Controlled

With the right treatments, PCOS and its associated hair loss / hair growth can be controlled. This is because despite the fact that hair is thinning, the hair follicles themselves are still alive. This makes new hair growth, very possible.
