Is it true that PCOD can impact chances of pregnancy?November 27, 2017 Posted by: Dr. Manoj 397 views
As normal as cold or cough is, there are a lot other health conditions which most of us could have, or rather have, and still don’t treat them because they aren’t life threatening. One such problem in women is PCOD/PCOS. Having PCOD has become more popular in the last two decades, and practically has no particular reason to occur. But it definitely becomes a huge concern in the long run, and a prioritised condition to treat. And the major concern for women with PCOD is fertility.
It is a fact for sure, that women with PCOD are at risk for pregnancy. Gestational diabetes (high diabetes during pregnancy) which most don’t realise, is one of result of having PCOD. Nevertheless, there are ways to overcome the risk of having PCOD. One way, possibly one of the best ways is homeopathy.
So before looking into how homeopathy can help treating PCOS/PCOD, let’s have a brief understanding of what polycystic ovarian disease is.
Polycystic ovarian disease or syndrome, occurs when there is an extreme imbalance in the levels of oestrogen and progesterone in a woman. It is a condition characterised by multiple cyst formations in the ovaries.
The Basics First
Every month the pituitary gland secretes follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone into the bloodstream that reach the ovaries. After these hormones reach the ovaries, the eggs start to mature, expanding the follicles. This makes the follicles secrete oestrogen to a certain level. The pituitary gland, then secretes the luteinizing hormone causing the most mature follicle to release its egg. This egg travels through the Fallopian tube, where it waits to get fertilised.

This is how polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) occurs
- The pituitary glands secrete abnormally high amounts of luteinizing hormone into the bloodstream disrupting your normal menstrual cycle.
- This obstructs the ovulation process and leads to infertility.
- Some of the immature follicles do not dissolve and remain as sacs filled with fluid (cysts).
- The pancreas start producing too much insulin in the body, which leads to an abnormal production of the male hormone called testosterone.
- Excess production of testosterone also stops the ovulation process which leads to infertility.
How can Homeopathy help in treating PCOD and its impact on pregnancy?
The human body is naturally designed to keep itself disease free. It is only when the inner vitality of the body is disturbed that it tends to lose the capacity to defend itself from diseases. Hence, homeopathy’s approach works towards restoring the balance of that vitality. Once this self-defence mechanism of the body regains its original balance, it nurses itself back to health without external aid.
Homeopathic medicines stabilise the hormonal imbalance in the body and neutralise the negative effects. The ovarian cysts dissolve gradually in the few months of starting the treatment. The menstrual cycle regularises, and the person starts feeling more confident. You may also see changes in other complaints like acne and facial hair being drastically reduced. These changes in the body open up the possibility of the woman becoming fertile in the future with a healthy pregnancy.
