Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), is a healing opportunity that can affect a woman’s menstrual cycle, fertility, hormones, insulin production, cardiovascular system, and physical appearance. The primary defining characteristic of this disease, is the growth of many, cysts inside the ovaries. PCOS is typically caused by Insulin Resistance and may take the form of numerous symptoms, which vary from woman to woman. These symptoms include, but are not limited to:
Menopause is a stage of life for women that occurs as the ovaries stop producing estrogen, causing the reproductive system to gradually cease to function. As the body adapts to the changing levels of natural hormones many symptoms become apparent such as; hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, hot hands and feet, increased depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings and lack of concentration. Other symptoms include vaginal dryness, hair dryness, and urgency of urination. Eventually, woman will experience increasingly scanty and erratic menstrual periods ending in a cessation of a menstrual cycle.
Endometriosis is a common medical condition where the tissue lining the uterus (the endometrium, from endo, "inside", and metrium, "mother") is found outside of the uterus, typically affecting other organs in the pelvis. The condition can lead to serious health problems, primarily pain and infertility. Endometriosis primarily develops in women of the reproductive age.
