Abstract

PCOS AN AYURVEDIC REVIEW

Vaidya Sushma Shankar, Vaidya Pratyush Kumar and Vaidya Priyanka Sharma*

ABSTRACT

In the current world of advanced industrialization and technology humans are getting adapted to very comfortable and sedentary living standards. Changing life style, diet pattern, increase in stress and pollution are resulting in many lifestyle disorders. PCOS is one amongst them. It is mostly seen in young women during their reproductive age. It is one of the most common causes for infertility and menstrual disorders. Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrinopathy. It is characterized by polycystic ovaries, chronic anovulation and hyperandrogenism leading to symptoms of menstrual irregularity, infertility and hirsutism. In Ayurveda no direct reference of PCOS is available but it may be correlated with Artavakshaya or with Pushpaghni Jataharani. Ayurveda advocates that sedentary lifestyle, overweight and increased stress lead to Kapha-vridhhi and medovridhhi, which in turn cause srotavrodha or blocking of Vata and Pitta in the minute body channels of the body, thereby disturbing the normal physiology. The hypothalamo-pituitaryovarian axis gets disturbed resulting in the formation of small cysts in spite of formation of a mature ovum & finally it leads to amenorrhoea. This study was carried out to study the concept of PCOS with Ayurvedic perspective and to describe its prevention and management through Ayurveda.

Keywords: PCOS, artav-kshaya, medo-vriddhi, srotavarodha.
