Polycystic ovary syndrome or ovarian laziness is a female hormonal disorder. This syndrome is also known as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). This disorder is common in women of childbearing age. In women with this syndrome, prolonged or irregular menstruation and high levels of the male hormone androgen are observed. In these cases, the chance of pregnancy decreases. Acne, oily skin, excess facial and body hair growth, or hair loss are other symptoms of PCOS syndrome.
A woman’s ovaries produce immature eggs or follicles monthly. The follicle grows and releases mature eggs during the ovulation process. In people with this syndrome, the ovaries do not function normally, mature eggs are not made, and hormone balance is upset. It also releases too much testosterone, which disrupts the monthly ovulation process. We do not know the exact main cause of ovarian laziness yet. But there are factors that predispose a person to this disorder:
People with ovarian laziness syndrome are more likely to get other diseases. Diseases such as:
The treating physician diagnoses the disease with the help of physical examination and the use of laboratory tests.
The treatment of this syndrome is more focused on eliminating disorders such as infertility, obesity, acne and abnormal hair growth (Hirsutism). Usually, physicians prescribe lifestyle changes and the use of certain medications. Contraceptive pills are the most common of these drugs.
Women’s bodies also produce male androgen hormones. One of these male hormones is testosterone. Androgen promotes the growth of underarm hair and areas around the genital area during puberty. But it also has other important functions. Ovarian cysts increase androgen production. As a result, masculine traits occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.
For example, many excess hairs grow in certain areas of the body that are seen in men, such as the face, neck, chest and abdomen. On the other hand, high levels of androgens lead to hair loss and thinning hair. In this way, the front of your head will gradually look thinner and less back. This pattern of hair loss is called androgenetic alopecia or female pattern hair loss.
In fact, hormonal disorders are the main cause of hair loss in PCOS syndrome. Therefore, regulating hormone levels and restoring them to equilibrium is the main goal of the treatment process. Hormones can be re-adjusted with medication and lifestyle changes. You may have to try several medications and methods to find the right treatment for you. Often the use of several drugs gives the patient the desired results. Here are some effective and common treatments for hair loss caused by polycystic ovary syndrome:
Hair that you have lost due to polycystic ovary syndrome will not grow back on it’s own. But there are several treatments and measures that can help prevent hair loss from PCOS syndrome and stimulate hair regrowth. Using hair mesotherapy/PRP/ hair transplant can do a lot to help regrowth your lost hair due to PCOS syndrome after treatment.
