Dr. Jyoti B. Babali, *Dr. Kasinath S. H. and Dr. K. A. Patil

Abstract

PCOS is a common chronic an ovulatory disorder with androgen excess in women of reproductive age. In PCOS hormonal imbalance give rise to the clinical manifestation i.e. Amenorrhea, hirsutism, obesity, hair loss, painful menses, acne & Infertility. According to Ayurveda, This type of clinical features are found in Pushpagni jataharini (Disease similar to the PCOS mostly having hyperandrogenism and an ovulatory cycle). It involves imbalance of vata and kapha doshas, meda –mamsa-rakta dhatus & In Artava kshaya the menstruation does not appear in its appropriate time or it is delayed (intermenstrual period is prolonged). Aims: To explore and understand, ayurvedic theories and practices on PCOS. Conclusion: Comparing the PCOS condition with any one classical mentioned disease is difficult. No direct correlating condition was found in classical text books. Hence samprapti of PCOS in ayurvedic terms were postulated. In Ayurveda it is better understood based on the doshas and dushyas involved rather than a mere term to represent it. Here an attempt has been made to understand PCOS with Ayurvedic classics.

Keywords: PCOS, Yonivyapat, Artava, Ayurveda.
