PCOD (Polycystic ovarion Disease) it is cause due to hormonal imbalance some time it is one of the cause for infertility & it is associated with D.M..The Managment (Medicinal / surgical) of PCOD depends on the severity of disease & the cyst size.Some ayurvedic formulations shows very encouraging results in this condition.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
PCOD is polycystic ovarian disease in which there are multiple cysts present in the ovary. There is difficulty in ovulation and you get periods after 2-3 months that too with a heavy flow. It is due to hormonal disbalance and treatment reduces the problem to a large extent.

hi dear,PCOD might not interfere with your fertility at all and yet at the other end of the spectrum might definitely be responsible for a rigid infertility, but don't worry at this stage as there are many fertility enhancing drugs available for this.
  User's Response
PCOD can be treated with medicines like kanchanara guggulu,vriddivadhika vati with asokarista. Undergo therpies like virechana,uttarabasti. Take lot of vegetables and fruits. Drink plenty of warm water and keep your bowels clean. If you have irregular periods,take rajahpravarthini vati.
