POLY WHAT? Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Poly means many and cystic refers to a usually non-cancerous sac-like growth filled with liquid or semisolid substance which can cause pain. Common findings are weight problems, acne, hirsutism (hair growth in a male pattern), high blood sugars/diabetes, irregular menstruations, infertility, and miscarriages. These finding are only present in 30% of women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, so the typical findings are not as typical as we tend to think. PCOS is the most common endocrine abnormality in women of childbearing age. Between 5%-15% of women may have PCOS, and it is underdiagnosed. How many women have PCOS and are not being treated? This is the million-dollar question.


Is PCOS caused by the ovaries? Unfortunately, the ovaries are one of the many victims in this “tragedy”. Other not so innocent by standers to mention a few are the liver, the adrenal glands, the pancreas the thyroid and the heart. This syndrome is a group of symptoms and problems originating from an unbalanced production of hormones. PCOS doesn’t affect only women in their reproductive years, the risks of developing symptoms and diseases associated with the syndrome persist throughout life.

In our brain there is a pea size gland called the pituitary. This small and mighty gland produces many very important hormones. Amongst them are the Follicle Stimulating Hormone or FSH and the Luteinizing Hormone or LH. The FSH is responsible for the stimulation of the follicle in the ovaries which contain the egg as it grows, is nourished, and is released to the fallopian tubes to be fertilized. The LH plays a huge role in the releasing of the egg from the follicle. It requires fine balancing and the right timing of hormones for this to happen like clockwork. Estrogen and progesterone are produced by the ovary and if they are not produced in the proper amounts and at the right time it will mess up the clockwork. The result is a follicle that cannot release the egg and can become a cyst which can continue to grow, cause pain, irregular menstruations, heavy menstruations, infertility, miscarriages, ovarian cancer, and uterine cancer.                                                                                                           


Women with PCOS are often insulin resistant – this means blood sugar starts to increase and we are headed for diabetes. An inefficient production/ action of thyroid hormone contributes to insulin resistance. The poor liver is unable to function properly and starts to store fat. The adrenal glands which have many LH receptors get overstimulated and cause inflammation. This a recipe for problems, and women with PCOS have an increased risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia (also known as “high cholesterol”), non-alcoholic fatty liver, ovarian, breast and uterine cancer.
