What are the complications?

If you are experiencing prolonged menstrual troubles, you can be prone to having PCOD. Besides, having comorbidities like diabetes, thyroid and pelvic infections can only increase the risk.

  • Young girls, working women and women between 18 and 35 years are most vulnerable to developing PCOD
  • If left untreated, it may destroy the affected ovary, even causing death
  • Can lead to infertility
  • Poses ovarian and breast cancer risk

How can you prevent PCOD?

PCOD is a curable condition. The most crucial part of treating PCOD is early diagnosis. It helps arrest the cyst growth in the ovaries and prevents further damage of the same. Some prevention measures include:

  • Lifestyle correction
  • Treating your hormonal imbalance
  • Abstaining from smoking/alcohol
  • Treating comorbidities like thyroid, diabetes and pelvic problems
  • Losing excess weight
  • Diabetic diet
  • Early diagnosis under a gynecology doctor near you 

What are the treatment options for PCOD?

PCOD treatment aims to diffuse the complications that cause cyst formation on the ovaries. Treatment includes diagnosis under a gynecology doctor near you. It requires USG scans to measure ovarian complications. Treatment methods include:

  • Controlled medication (birth-control pill formulations) to treat patients with limited cyst formation

For patients showing large cyst formation or not responding to medication therapy:

  • Laparoscopy to destroy cysts formed on the ovaries
  • Oophorectomy to remove ovary/ovaries if the infection affects overall well-being


PCOD is more than just another condition for women. Women experience a profound psychological impact owing to fertility factors. Thanks to IVF and IUI techniques, childbirth is no more affected due to PCOD.

To learn more about the same, consult a gynecology surgeon near you.





Do STIs cause PCOD?

PCOD occurs because of physiological issues. It has nothing to do with any pathogens.

What if I have allergies to birth-control pills?

Consult a gynecology doctor near you under such circumstances. Natural ingredients and lifestyle management are effective alternatives to birth-control pills.

How can you distinguish between menstrual pain and PCOD?

Menstrual pain occurs only during the days of shedding. PCOD pain is persistent and spreads across the lower abdominal region, unlike menstrual cramps.

Can PCOD affect the uterus?

PCOD affects the ovaries alone. Under the worst-case scenario, it may worsen and turn into ovarian cancer, which may spread out.
