Usefulness of Homoeopathic medicines in Poly-cystic ovarian syndrome- Case series
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder that affects multiple aspect of women’s health during the reproductive age group. PCOS exerts a negative impact on female identity and contributes to deterioration of Quality of life. Homoeopathy is a complementary system of medicine that can be used safely without any known side-effects. This article mainly highlights the importance of using individualized homoeopathic medicines in PCOS. Three cases of women in reproductive age with PCOS were treated with individualized homeopathic medicines. Each case was reported according to the criteria set out in the HOM-CASE guidelines. The improvement is evaluated from the regularity of the menstrual cycle by assessing with the PCOS questionnaire, Modified Naranjo Criteria for Homoeopathy (MONARCH), and also from the ultrasonography (USG) reports. Marked improvement was observed in all three cases of PCOS. The irregular menstrual cycles and other associated symptoms became normal, along with a resolution of cysts in ovaries as noticed in ultrasonography. All cases improved within 6 to 18 months of treatment. The Modified Naranjo Criteria total score was +8/13, +9/13, +8/13 for the cases, which indicates a positive causal attribution of homeopathy in relieving the symptoms of PCOS. These case reports suggest a significant role of individualized homeopathic medicines in PCOS. The improvement is evident at the symptomatic level, and also in Ultrasonography.
