Welcome to Healthcare Magic
PCOD is Polycystic Ovarian Disease. There are large and multiple cysts due to hormonal disturbance in the body. Ovulation will not occur due to this ovulation disturbance. You can get DHEA, LH/FSH ratio, Fasting blood sugar levels tested in blood. Hence, treatable infertility will occur. There are also other problems associated like Diabetes, hair growth on chin, face, obesity, weight gain. There are various modalities of treatment like Laparascopic treatment, laser etc. but first the Doctor will help in reducing hormonal problems by giving OC pills. Medicines for Diabetes may be needed. Exercise is very important to help reduce problems.
