How does PCOD affect fertility?
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or PCOD
    (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) are generally
    interchangeably used even though they have very
    minute differences. While PCOS affects the
    metabolism of the body as a whole PCOD affects
    only the ovaries. PCOD disrupts the functioning
    of the female reproductive system and affects the
    fertility of a woman. The major cause of such
    disruptions and disease is the imbalance of
    hormones occurring in a female body.
  • The condition should be curbed when it comes to
    the fore to avoid bigger complications later.
    This condition generally occurs in middle-aged
    females who become mature enough to bear
    children, but it might show itself in adolescence
    too. It is also genetic. There are certain ways
    of ascertaining PCOD. If these conditions or
    symptoms of a PCOD are visible the person should
    consult a good medical consultant immediately.
  • Irregular periods
  • Extreme hair fall
  • Abnormal hair growth

  • Acne
  • Skin darkening
  • Obesity

Irregular periods may be due to PCOS but PCOD is
a disorder of abnormal release of sex hormones.
The female reproductive system has parts like
ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and vagina, each
having specific functions to perform in the
reproduction cycle. The ovaries hold the immature
eggs. The functioning of the ovaries is
determined by the pituitary gland. The
communication between the two is through the
production of hormones like the FSH (Follicle
Stimulating Hormone) and Luteinizing Hormone
pumped into the bloodstream. These hormones
mature the eggs and the follicle size increases.
Simultaneously estrogen is released to release
Luteinizing Hormone in the ovaries. Then the
ovulation occurs with the most mature follicle
releasing the egg. This is the normal process of
ovulation but if you have PCOD then the pituitary
gland releases an abnormal amount of Luteinizing
Hormone which in turn does not allow the
follicles to mature and thus it cannot ovulate.
These follicles generally dissolve after
ovulation but in this care may not dissolve and
may form a cyst causing infertility. Another
condition is when the pituitary gland secretes an
abnormal amount of insulin which in turn
initiates the secretion of high levels of
testosterone. This imbalance in secretion
prevents the ovulation process causing
infertility. High hormone imbalance also leads to
other problems like abnormal hair growth and
Other types of disorders that can be associated
with PCOD like type 2 diabetes, heart disease,
high blood pressure, cholesterol abnormalities,
endometrial cancer and the irregular period
leading to obesity. 
PCOD can be diagnosed and treated with the right
kind of medicinal help from an expert
gynecologist. If you are looking for a specialist

thyroid. The PCOD condition can be improved by
lifestyle changes like sleep, regular meals,
regular workouts and other such lifestyle changes
that affect the PCOD condition.
