What sort of natural treatments are available to cure infertility in polycystic ovary syndrome patients?

Dr. Sankar Das Mahapatra

Overweight women suffering from PCOS symptoms will notice a considerable improvement in their condition if they manage to shed a bit of weight. The lower the body weight, the more sensitive a woman becomes to insulin, resulting in regular periods and reduced acne and hair growth. Women need to adjust their diet and establish a workout routine for treating infertility. Weight loss is also mandatory for PCOS patients trying to get pregnant. Not only does it restore ovulation and make the body more responsive to fertility treatments, but it also facilitates improved glucose control and better androgen hormone levels. If you’re wondering how to treat infertility stemming from polycystic ovary syndrome, know that lifestyle adjustments are a must, especially the implementation of a personal physical activity routine. The steps for treatment involve moderate to intense exercise, like brisk walks for a period of 30 minutes five days a week. Maintain a chart or journal detailing the kind of exercise you do and their duration. You should focus on reducing fat near the abdomen. This is possible by boosting the body’s metabolism. Try bike riding thrice a week for 30 minutes. You will lose weight faster compared to merely altering your diet. Simply changing your diet won’t yield positive results. Eat lots of plants, like legumes, nuts, vegetables, and fruit. Also include healthy lean proteins, good fats, and calcium-rich dairy substitutes or low-fat dairy products. PCOS patients also struggle with anxiety and depression. Hormonal imbalance impacts your mood and you need to cope with PCOS challenges to better deal with mood swings.
