Common hormonal disorders
PCOS / PCOD (Polycystic ovarian syndrome)
This is most common female hormonal disorder marked by presence of multiple cysts in ovaries. Some patients believe that it will be corrected automatically after pregnancy. But truth is different. PCOS is one of the major cause of Infertility (unable to conceive) in females. They have to be dependent on life time artificial hormones which regularizes the cycle but does not dissolve away the cysts, the root cause.
Ovarian Cyst is an accumulation of fluid within an ovary that is surrounded by a very thin wall and can cause problems if they twist, bleed, or rupture. They are usually removed surgically and then if problem reappear the surgical removal of entire ovary advised, which has a negative effect on whole body.
Uterine Fibroids are noncancerous tumors that develop in the uterus. Though these are usually harmless but cause tremendous agony in females by causing profuse, protracted and painful menses.
Infertility is inability to conceive or become pregnant. If a woman keeps having frequent miscarriages, it is also called infertility.
Endometriosis occurs when cells from the lining of the womb (uterus) grow in other areas of the body. This can lead to pain, irregular bleeding, and tends to rupture easily.
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
This is a term for inflammation of the uterus fallopian tubes, and/or ovaries as it progresses to scar formation with adhesions to nearby tissues and organs. This may lead to various infections.
Conventional Treatment of Female Hormonal Disorders
Conventional treatment is based on Replacement or Removal method.
- Replacement of deficient female hormones from outside in form of contraceptive pills (deviry, yasmin, primulit, crimson, provera) and antidoting male hormones through artificial hormones is of temporary relief only as long as you take it.
- If patients do not respond to artificial hormone replacement therapy then surgical removal is second option where just end product of disease is removed.
- In infertility cases heavy artificial hormones are fed along with invasive painful techniques and success is still not achieved.
- For fibroids and heavy menstrual flow, hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) is advised. Hence without correcting the underlying cause an organ is removed saying “it’s of no use anymore to you”.

Women these days are experiencing many disorders due to imbalance in their hormones resulting in PCOS, ovarian cysts, fibroids, infertility, etc. Usual treatment of these disorders is replacement of deficient hormones with artificial hormones. These hormonal pills come as a great sigh of relief to patients but they are unaware that these are “Oral contraceptive pills”.
What these artificial hormones do?
In conventional treatment the hormonal imbalance is treated by replacing the deficient hormones with synthetic hormonal (contraceptive) pills that are to be taken every month (like deviry, yasmin, primulit, crimson, etc).
- These artificial hormones are not produced by your own body but is a replacement to your hormones. Hence you have artificial menses and your body is not playing any role in it.
- No doubt these hormonal contraceptive pills give instant results but this is like short term gains long term loss. While Homoeopathy works on your body and cures the disease and is a long term gain.
- As and when you stop these pills their effect goes away hence they have to be taken for life long or either you opt for removal of these vital organs which often are termed as “not required now and one usually goes for surgery hoping for cure but there is more i.e complications follow it as well”
- At times females think that they are getting better and fine with 3-6 months of these hormonal cycles but truth is that “They have to take these pills lifelong as their own body has stopped producing hormones.”
- Real trouble come when these females get married and try to conceive but it turns a failure as “How can they conceive if they are dependent on contraceptive pills for their artificial menses”.
