Abstract

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the fastest growing endocrinological disorder in females of reproductive age. In PCOS, follicular growth is influenced by hormonal imbalance due to which affected follicles remain in the ovary. The prevalence of PCOS is estimated 6-10% globally and 3.7% - 22.5% in Indian female population, which is relatively high. It is characterised by hyperandrogenism, anovulation and polycystic ovaries seen on USG which clinically manifests in the complex form of amenorrhea or oligomenorrhea, hirsutism, acne, infertility etc. incidence of this disease increasing exponentially due to faulty dietary habits, lack of exercise, sedentary lifestyle, only focusing on career ignoring health etc. PCOS is not directly explained in Ayurveda we can corelate it with some of the conditions like Vandhya Yonivyapada, Arajaska Yonivyapada, Artava Kshaya, Nastartava, Pushpaghni Jataharini, etc. Its Hetu can be understood by different Yoniyapada Hetu, Artavavaha Srotodusthi Hetu etc. and treatment can be planned by assessing the Dosha, Dushya, Agni, Ama and Prakruti of patient. We can plan ayurvedic treatment with the help of various Ayurvedic herbal and mineral preparations, Panchakarma, along with diet and lifestyle modifications. Which can be judiciously implemented to   alleviate PCOS and all associated problems.
