What is Pcos?

A lot of females like me don’t really know what is PCOS and doctor doesn’t make you aware of what are you diagnosed with and how to overcome the problem what you are facing in your monthly cycle.

PCOS is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome where there are multiple ovarian cysts in an ovary. (Ovaries surrounded with multiple tiny cyst) This leads to irregularity of periods and hormonal imbalance which again leads to major disease like type 2 diabetes, thyroid, high blood pressure, obesity and infertility, if not taken proper care. Every female body differs with its symptoms and with proper treatment one can control it.

There is no evidence of how is one diagnosed with pcos but as far as I can tell with my experience is that it might be due to the unhealthy lifestyle where I used to consume junk food everyday. There was no proper nutrient intake and no exercise.

Slowly I stopped having my monthly cycles and eventually could see the difference in my weight, I had gained five kg in few months. I didn’t really care about anything those days and that lead to symptoms of pcos which I will explain in my next post.

Quote of the day

We seek for faith
to aspire what we wish for,
In this materialistic world
We forget that
it already lies within

 

Bottom Line : We forget that we can solve half of our problems which we face in our day to day life by seeking peace within, we normally look for superficial things to help us forget what we really are and try to seek happiness. If at all we know the real meaning of happiness is within us we can achieve anything. Like wise faith lies within us be it for spiritual or for seeking peace.
