|Dear Rita Chandler
We can perform ovarian drilling for you and it will cost only 1,000 USD at our hospital for ovarian drilling but we don't think that only ovarian drilling will improve your condition. You should also get some bariatic surgery done to decrease your obesity. Sleeve gastrectomy will be a good option for you.
Polycystic ovaries; Polycystic ovary disease; Stein-Leventhal syndrome; Polyfollicular ovarian disease. Pcos is a symptom in which there is an imbalance of a woman's female sex hormones. This substance imbalance could cause changes in the menstrual period, skin changes, small cysts within the ovaries, trouble conceiving a child, along with other problems.
Causes, incidence, and risks
Female sex hormones include estrogen and progesterone, as well as hormones called androgens. Androgens, often called "male hormones," are also contained in women, however in different amounts.
Hormones help regulate the normal growth and development of eggs in the ovaries during each menstrual cycle. Polycystic ovary syndrome relates to an imbalance in these female sex hormones. Too much androgen hormone is made, along with changes in other hormonal levels.
It is not completely understood why or how the alterations in the hormone levels occur.
Follicles are sacs inside the ovaries that contain eggs. Normally, a number of eggs are released during each menstrual period. This is known as ovulation. In pcos, the eggs during these follicles don't mature and therefore are not released from the ovaries. Instead, they can form very small cysts in the ovary.
These changes can bring about infertility. The other symptoms of this disorder are due to the hormone imbalances.
Women are usually diagnosed when in their 20s or 30s, but polycystic ovary syndrome could also affect teenage girls. The symptoms often begin when a girl's periods start. Women with this disorder usually have a mother or sister that has symptoms much like those of polycystic ovary syndrome.
Alterations in the menstrual cycle:
Absent periods, usually having a good reputation for having a number of normal menstrual periods during puberty (secondary amenorrhea)
Irregular menstrual periods, which may be more or less frequent, and may vary from very light to very heavy
Development of male sex characteristics (virilization):
Decreased breast size
Deepening from the voice
Enlargement from the clitoris
Increased body hair on the chest, abdomen, and face, as well as round the nipples (called hirsutism)
Thinning from the hair around the head, called male-pattern baldness
Other skin changes:
Acne that worsens
Dark or thick skin markings and creases around the armpits, groin, neck, and breasts due to insulin sensitivity
