PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian disease is a hormonal disorder. Women with PCOD produce too much androgen which is a male hormone. An excess of androgen can cause menstrual irregularities, weight gain, acne and unwanted hair growth. The acne occurs because high androgen levels lead to increased oil production which then gets trapped under the skin causing bacterial infection. The weight gain in such cases happens because of insulin resistance. A woman with PCOD however may not present with all the symptoms at the same time. Often in some cases, the patient presents with only 1-2 symptoms and the diagnosis is missed out. Fortunately once it’s diagnosed, PCOD can be treated and may sometime involve treatment from different specialists simultaneously.
