Medical Case Details:

Hello,

I have a friend who is 31 years old has PCOD, and she is unable to conceive. She is not compliant with allopathic medications and wants to try Ayurvedic treatment. I would like to know if there is an ayurvedic treatment for infertility due to PCOD and obesity, which can guarantee results. Also, how long will she need to take the treatment to get pregnant? She has been trying for three years and is now desperate.

    Hello Doctor
    As you know PCOD occurs due to hormonal imbalances. Releasing immature ovum unable to get fertilized, which leads to infertility. Normally after ovulation remaining immature follicles get dissolve but in PCOD these follicles becomes fluid filled cyst.
    According to Ayurveda it's a Kapha predominat disorder. It can be managed through ayurvedic medicines and Yoga practices.
    You should advice to your friend to consult Ayurveda Physician near by her.
    Thank you to showing your interest in Ayurveda.

    Hello Doctor,
    Regards,
    Ayurveda has really good results in such cases.
    Definitely no one guarantee of conception but she can try n follow Ayurveda surely.
    First of all in her case weight management and proper counselling for boosting confidence is very important. Psychology has great importance in hormonal imbalance.
    Some important points:
    Lifestyles modifications
    Proper Exercise and sleep
    Proper and nutritious diet
    Detoxification
    Good. Counselling
    As a start she can take shatavari kalp and kumari asav but better after consulting any good vaidya.
    Thanks,
    Dr.Anjali

    Hi Doctor,

    In PCOS cases most probably harmonal imbalance and other etiology found but most of the cases harmonal imbalance with the overy distruction (Overy Cyst/Choclate Cyst) production happen to create the conceive problem.
    In this case I need medical Reports and History for the conclusion like LH-PRL-FSH-TSH, Progestrone, Estrogen, AMA, ANA, LFT, Torch and Vitamins.

Its not just the ovulation that is impaired , most of the women with PCOS have insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance. out of which around 10%develop diabetes in later life. Even if she is not compliant with allopathic treatment...she should get herself investigated properly...she should get her fasting sugar, insulin ,ogtt as well as lipid profile..she should loose weight weighloss itself decreases hyperandrogenic state and ovulation is resumed..if she is not ovulating with clomiphene 100 mg then dose can be increased as the max dose that can be given is 150 mg or gonadotropins can be used..if she has insulin resistance Metformin can be added...I have seen Excellent results after clomiphene and Metformin in obese Pco...but patient has to be compliant

    PCOD is mainly in those patients who are lazy, eating Reading, earning, they don't know the importance of exercise and they are not diet conscious, so these patients are advised first of all do exercise and become physically active, eat protein rich diet avoid carbohydrates, eat fruits and vegetables and simultaneously regularse their periods with oral contraceptive if there is amenorrhoea, if no Amenorrhoea then she can take clomiphane citrate in increasing dose starting from 50mg,along with metformin 1000mg twice a day for 3months.,then ocp Gillette, 35is best ocp,, if no result by clomiphane, she can start letrizole, from 2nd day of periods., vitamins D3sachet regulates menses and improve follicles development.

    Hi Dr.Anand.
    Can homeopathy help her in conceiving??

    01.Aug, 12:31pm

    Dr. Anand Rao Mengji
    Homeopathic Physician

    Yes. Homoeopathy will definitely help her.

    Homoeopathic treatment involves constitutional approach which means that we take in to consideration all the aspects of the human body i.e., physicals, pathological and also the main aspect the mental status of the patient. such an approach leads to homeostasis of the body and brings back the normalcy of the human pathology.

    Treatment with homoeopathy is just to trigger the self defence mechanism of out body so that the body recovers on its own to normalcy. PCOS usually in many cases is associated with some kind of emotional disturbances and mental trauma in their life situation and if we take into consideration the mental aspect along with the physical and pathological aspect, cure is usually inevitable

    she can conceive easily and I presume the time span of the treatment shall be usually between 6 months to 2 yrs depending upon the chronicity and other factors. her husbands evaluation should also be done in cases of infertility which is usually not thought of.

    01.Aug, 12:44pm

    Dr. Honey Arora
    Dentist

    Her husband's evaluation is also done.
    His sperm count and motility are all within normal range.

    Dr. Prabhakar Laxman Jathar
    Diabetologist

    Well mine is a late entry in the discussion. As one the doctors has mentioned PCOS is considered as a metabolic syndrome. Use of Metformin is now considered as the best option, particularly in an obese patient. Metformin also can induce ovulation. If her all hormonal levels are normal, then with metformin she should be able to get proper control and even conceive. It is also essential to check her thyroid hormone levels and TSH. As hypothyroidism is quite often associated with PCOS. Thanks.
