The 4 Types of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Types of PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
I’d like you to know that a more comprehensive format blog on this topic is coming soon, so stay tuned for that.
Insulin Resistant PCOS:
The Hypothalamic–Pituitary–Ovarian Axis and the Role of Insulin.
Insulin Resistant PCOS makes up around 70% of the cases.
Insulin, directly and indirectly, affects the pathogenesis of hyperandrogenemia in PCOS. Insulin acts synergistically with luteinizing hormone (LH) to enhance the Androgen production of theca cells. High insulin levels lower sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG inherently increases the symptoms of hyperandrogenism. Women with elevated androgens and low SHBG will feel even more androgenic since SHBG causes the body to use more hormones.
Post Birth Control PCOS:
Birth control (BC) nearly shuts off the ovaries. Some women can have hormonal surges after stopping BC, and androgens get too high. Interestingly, this can take 3-6 months to kick in.
Stress-induced hyperandrogenism. If you don’t think this is true, please search Google Scholar. You’ll find About 1,880 results. Similarly to many health issuess, stress is the root issue.
Chronic internal inflammation causes the ovaries to overproduce androgens.
