If women have a very strong hair growth, this may be an indication of a polycystic ovary syndrome( PCOS).About six to eight percent of all women of childbearing age have this disease of the ovaries.
Dark fuzz on the upper lip
Women, which are a very strong hair growth, may suffer from a disease of the ovaries. Typical for the so-called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome( PCOS) are, for example, a dark fuzz on the upper lip, wide, dense eyebrows, a pubic hair, which extends to the thighs and in a wide strip to the navel and dark hair on the calves(BVF) in a recent communication.
Symptoms of ovarian disease
"Women who observe these symptoms should be examined in women's surgery," explained Dr.med. Christian Albring, President of the Berufsverband der Frauenärzte and a resident female doctor in Hanover."In many cases, all these symptoms are caused by a disease of the ovaries which can be treated well."
In addition to the mentioned changes of skin and hair in the ultrasound close to the outer cover of the ovaries many small blisters can be seen. According to health experts, between six and eight percent of all women of childbearing age have a polycystic ovary syndrome( PCOS).This is associated with cycle disturbances and an increase in male sex hormones also with a loss of insulin.
Affected women have problems getting pregnant
When a PCOS is not treated, it progresses further and furthernot only do all cosmetic problems persist. As a result, it is often not possible for women to conceive without women's help. In addition, miscarriages are more common and the risk of developing diabetes, heart attack, stroke, thrombosis and severe thyroid disorder is increasing significantly. Furthermore, losing weight over time becomes more and more difficult.
Weight Reduction and Smoking Stop
Affected girls and women are advised to take a combination of less food and much more exercise, because "that is the essential essence of the therapy to break the insulin resistance," said Prof. Dr.med. Rudolf Seufert, Head of the Hormonal and Childhood Center at the Mainz University Hospital. In addition, the hormonal therapy is available to intervene to regulate the disease processes of the PCOS.
A child-care treatment for PCOS is possible in principle, but it can require a lot of time and patience. In addition, there are frequent complications during hormonal stimulation compared to healthy women."If these women want to become pregnant, it is very important that they stop smoking," says Albring."As a girl or a woman suspects that she suffers from such a hormonal change, she should therefore go to her doctor's office as soon as possible."
The expert summarized: "If a girl or a woman suspects that she suffers from such a hormonal change, Female physician or her female doctor and talk with him about all questions and uncertainties. "(Ad)
