Manage & Reverse PCOS Symptoms
Since you have scrolled to this page, I want to share some thoughts with you. I am sorry if you are going through a tough time dealing with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome). I want you to know that you are not alone, as many other women also suffer from this condition. It is a common condition that affects up to 10% of women worldwide and up to 20-25% of women of reproductive age in India.
PCOS can be a challenging and frustrating condition to deal with, but it's important to remember that there are ways to manage and improve the symptoms. You can work with your doctor to come up with a personalized treatment plan that is right for you.
It's also important to prioritize self-care and take care of yourself both physically and emotionally. Eating a healthy and balanced diet, getting regular exercise, and practicing stress-reducing activities such as yoga or meditation can help improve your overall well-being.
Remember that your worth and value are not defined by your diagnosis. You are a strong and resilient person who is capable of overcoming any challenges that come your way. Keep a positive attitude and know that you have a community of support around you.
Take care and stay strong.

Why many women are suffering from PCOS?
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. PCOS can cause a range of symptoms, including irregular periods, excess hair growth, acne, and weight gain. It often goes undiagnosed in India due to a lack of awareness and understanding of the condition. Many women with PCOS are misdiagnosed or do not seek medical care until they experience infertility or other major complications.
Overall, PCOS is a significant health issue in India, and more needs to be done to improve awareness, diagnosis, and treatment for this condition.
It's important to note that treatment for PCOS is individualized and may involve a combination of approaches. For women trying to conceive, fertility treatments such as ovulation induction, In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) may be recommended. At Srushti we work on each patient individually to develop a treatment plan that addresses their specific symptoms and goals.
Here are some important facts about PCOS:
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it is believed to be related to insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances. Genetics may also play a role.
There is no cure for PCOS, but it can be managed with lifestyle changes, such as weight loss and regular exercise. Medications may be prescribed to help regulate menstrual cycles, control insulin levels, and reduce excess hair growth.
The symptoms of PCOS vary from woman to woman, but they typically include irregular periods, excess hair growth, acne, and weight gain. Other symptoms may include infertility, mood changes, and sleep apnea.
PCOS can lead to a number of complications, including infertility, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. It is important to manage the condition and reduce the risk of complications.
PCOS is diagnosed based on a combination of symptoms, a physical exam, and blood tests to check hormone levels. An ultrasound may also be used to check for cysts on the ovaries.
If you suspect you may have PCOS, it is important to see a healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment. With proper management, most women with PCOS are able to live healthy, fulfilling lives.

If you have been diagnosed with PCOS, there are several steps you can take to manage your symptoms and improve your overall health:
Maintain a healthy weight: If you are overweight or obese, losing weight through a healthy diet and exercise can help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce symptoms of PCOS.
Exercise regularly: Exercise can help improve insulin sensitivity and reduce inflammation, which may help alleviate some symptoms of PCOS.
Follow a healthy diet: Eating a healthy, balanced diet that is low in processed foods and refined carbohydrates and high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats may help improve symptoms of PCOS.
Manage stress: High levels of stress can worsen symptoms of PCOS, so it's important to find ways to manage stress, such as through relaxation techniques, exercise, or counseling.
Work with your healthcare provider: Your healthcare provider can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to manage your PCOS symptoms, which may include medication, such as hormonal contraceptives, or other therapies.
Monitor your health: Regular check-ups with your healthcare provider can help you monitor your health and identify any potential complications of PCOS, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
Remember, managing PCOS is a long-term process, and it's important to be patient and persistent in your efforts to manage your symptoms and improve your overall health.

PCOS Management at Srushti was so well planned, I have to say that it is a lifesaver. I've spent several years trying to bring my PCOS into control and trying to manage my symptoms along with my weight. But what I really appreciate is the impact and support that you get from Srushti. I've not only been able to see a considerable change in my body by just following their plan for over 3 months but I've also seen the other symptoms like excessive facial hair come down. Thank you to Dr Divya and your team for changing my life.
