Let’s find out what can happen if PCOS is not treated:-

Difficulty getting pregnant: Yes, PCOS causes difficulty in getting pregnant. If left untreated, PCOS can also lead to infertility.

Cysts in the ovary: Reduced or no egg production in the ovary, in a few women forces the follicles to keep growing till they form multiple cysts, commonly referred to as “the string of pearls”. 

Diabetes / High Blood Sugar: PCOS causes insulin resistance. Due to this the muscles, tissues, and other organs of your body don’t absorb the blood sugar. This can further lead to diabetes.

Endometrial cancer (lining of the uterus): Untreated PCOS increases the chances of endometrial cancer in women. This happens because, it stops the ovary from producing eggs, leading to the lack of progesterone thus letting the lining of the uterus grow uncontrollably leading to cancer.

Hypertension leading and cardiovascular diseases: High blood sugar and diabetes caused due to PCOS can further lead to hypertension and the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Should I consult a Doctor?

Yes, it is important that you go for your periodic checkups with the gynaecologist as you will then come to know within time if you have any PCOS symptoms. Like any other disease, early diagnosis and treatment are the best way out. The medical diagnosis of PCOS is based on the clinical examination of the patient, an ultrasound of the ovaries and the blood testosterone dosage.

Well, the most usual prescription is contraceptive pills. Though these tiny pills put the ovaries at rest and lower the secretion of androgens. But, they do have their own side effects in the long run as they provide just a band-aid solution for the meantime.
