With the changing life style of 21st century polycystic ovarian syndrome is emerging as one of the common causes of infertility. For a woman regular menstruation is an indication of normal functioning of her reproductive system. Irregular menstruation, which is a main symptom of polycystic ovarian syndrome, is very distressing for a woman. Infertility is the outcome of polycystic ovarian syndrome in 80% of cases and sometimes leads to psychiatric problems like mental depression in females.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is defined as the presence of chronic anovulation and hyperandrogenism. Chronic anovulation means that a woman is not ovulating, or releasing an egg, monthly. This typically leads to "missed" or "skipped" periods.
Hyperandrogenism seen in polycystic ovarian syndrome is an excess of "male" hormones (androgens) such as testosterone and androstenedione. Increased androgens can be detected by elevated levels in the blood, or by clinical manifestations of polycystic ovarian syndrome that include Hirsutism and / or acne.

Healing with Flaxseeds Print
Written by Kavita Wadhwa   

Flaxseeds or Linseeds as they are also called are seeds of a plant which grows up to a metre high and bears blue coloured flowers in the early months of every year. In the northern part of our country we know them as Alsi ke beej. Both the seeds themselves and the oil extracted from them have numerous therapeutic uses. Their nutritional benefits are due to their being a rich source of good quality fats and natural fiber.
The Flaxseed oil is a potent source of essential fatty acids-- those that are critical to health but which the body cannot make on its own. Apart from having Omega-6 fatty acids in the form of linoleic acid (the same good fats that are present in most other edible vegetable oils), flaxseed oil boasts of containing Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of alfa- linoleic acid.
