PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a common female reproductive disease causing infertility. Usually, it is diagnosed for women who are 20-40 years old. About ½ patients have profuse hair on upper lip, lower jaw, areola, middle-line of the abdomen and around anus; 1/3-1/2 patients with over-weight. Commonly, patients see doctors for irregular periods, amenorrhea and/or infertility.

There are no reasons can be proved exactly causing PCOS so far but it may connect with:

  1. Abnormal function of axis of HPO(hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian) which is affected by stress, anxiety, negative emotions, medications and some diseases;
  2. Imbalance and/or lack of female hormones;
  3. Hyperfunction of adrenocortical function which over-secretes male hormone.
  4. Genetic reasons...
In TCM (traditional Chinese medicine), PCOS is under the category of “Delayed Menses”; “Scanty Menses”; “Amemorrhea”; “Metrorrhagia” and/or “Infertility”... For TCM differentiations of PCOS, usually it as “Deficiency of Liver and Kidney”; “Deficiency of Kidney with phlegm stasis” and “Deficiency of Kidney with blood stasis”... (TCM terminological names).
