Are PCOD and PCOS the same? A lot of women get confused between the two, often using the two terms interchangeably, especially when trying to understand the relation between PCOS, PCOD and pregnancy. In reality, both the conditions are different, in spite of the similarities like being related to the ovaries and causing hormonal disturbances.
Understanding the difference between PCOD & PCOS
What is PCOD?
Woman has two ovaries that release an egg alternately every month. The ovaries produce androgens or male hormones in minute quantities. PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) is a condition where the ovaries release a lot of immature or partially-mature eggs which eventually turn into cysts. Some of the common symptoms are abdominal weight gain, irregular periods, male pattern hair loss and infertility. In this condition, the ovaries usually become enlarged and secrete large amounts of androgens that can cause havoc with a woman’s fertility and her body. The best treatment for PCOD often looks at reducing the severity of such symptoms.
What is PCOS?
In woman with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome), the ovaries produce higher levels of androgen than usual, which interferes with development and release of the eggs. Some of the eggs develop into cysts, which are the little sacs filled with liquid. Instead of being released during ovulation, these cysts build up in the ovaries and at times even get enlarged.
PCOS is a common endocrine disorder predominantly affecting women of reproductive age. Clinical manifestations are diverse including hyperandrogenism, anovulation, infertility and increased risk of metabolic diseases besides psychosocial dysfunction.
Prevalence of PCOS in India ranges from 3.7 to 22.5 per cent depending on the population studied and the criteria used for diagnosis. Abnormalities in leptin-adiponectin (adipocyte biology), oxidative stress and autoimmunity are among the mechanisms studied regarding pathogenesis of PCOS.
A pilot cross-sectional study conducted in Tamil Nadu assessed young adolescent females and found a prevalence of 18 per cent for PCOS, the proportion of PCOS was higher in urban women in comparison to the rural women. A similar study conducted in Mumbai, which was an urban community-based study, found that the prevalence of PCOS was 22.5 per cent by the Rotterdam criteria and 10.7 per cent by the Androgen Excess Society criteria.
How are the two conditions different?
Nature of the condition: PCOS is a serious condition. PCOD is not considered to be truly a disease since with the right diet and exercise, it can be managed. PCOS, on the other hand, is a metabolic disorder.
1. Causative factors:
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a disorder of the endocrine system, while PCOD is a condition developed by the imbalance of hormones. It is believed that hormonal imbalances and genetics play an essential role in both conditions. The theory is that high levels of male hormones prevent ovaries from producing hormones and producing eggs normally. Insulin resistance and inflammation have also been linked to excess androgen production.
PCOD is more common in comparison. Almost one-third of women around the globe suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Disease. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome has a lower number of patients.
3. Impact of PCOD & PCOS on pregnancy:
Polycystic Ovarian Disease does not lead to infertility in all women and shouldn’t be considered an obstacle towards pregnancy. In about 80 per cent of cases, women can possibly conceive with a little aid and experience a smooth pregnancy. For women with PCOS, conception can be a challenge due to the hormonal irregularities. To conceive, one should have balanced hormonal cycles that can create an environment for the ovum to release and infuse with the sperm post-intercourse. Since the levels of androgens in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome are very high, if one falls under the syndrome, conception can become a bit of a challenge.
Maintaining good health is essential to prevent as well as treat hormonal disturbances and conditions. The best treatment for PCOD and PCOS will include timely diagnosis and the appropriate steps that can help overcome the syndrome and make the journey towards conception a success.
Hormone related with the disease are :
FSH and LH are produced in the brain. FSH- A hormone that tells the ovaries to produce the egg. The newly produced egg is contained in a sac called the corpus luteum.
LH – Tells the ovaries to release the eggs into the uterus.
Progesterone and Estrogen – 2 hormones made by the ovaries. They prepare your uterus for pregnancy by making the uterus lining thick like a soft cushion/ shock proof surface to receive the egg from the ovaries.
Why PCOS or PCOD requires attention ? Why should I be concerned ?
Women with PCOS are at a high risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health complications. The incidence of the condition has been increasing every year, yet many women don’t think that it may be PCOS even when they notice symptoms. They simply attribute it to lifestyle. PCOS does arise out of poor lifestyle habits but it has adverse effects and should be treated. Since it is not life-threatening, people don’t care enough about it. Act Today!
PCOS is on the rise in India. More women have PCOS than diabetes. I will let it sink a little bit. Because now it is not something that can be shrugged off. And definitely something big enough that all of us need to be sensitive to the problem, be able to understand and help others with vocabulary, emotional sensitivity and their search for solutions.
Lifestyle and PCOS
There is enough and more research that acknowledges PCOS as a hormonal imbalance that can be managed with the right diet and nutrition. There are many examples of people who have achieved it with the same.
But if it was this easy to manage PCOS, then why is it on the rise? Because in our current lifestyle, busy schedules and food choices, managing daily nutrition and even specific for PCOS — does get difficult.
A healthy lifestyle is vital for all women with PCOS and is the best approach to reducing the severity of PCOS symptoms.
