The objectives of the study are- to assess various symptoms and the pharmacological agents used for the management of polycystic ovarian syndrome and their effectiveness at tertiary care hospital.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
It is a hospital based retrospective study. Retrospective analyses of OPD records of patients were collected and their symptoms, treatment and follow up noted and analysed.
Most of the subjects were between 15-20 yrs. age. 40% of the study subjects were overweight. 72 women had irregular menstrual cycles. Medroxyprogesterone and norethisterone were the progesterones most commonly used. Combined oral contraceptives with cyproterone and levonorgestrel were also used in PCOS. Tranexamic acid, mefenamic acid ad metformin were the non-hormonal agents used.
In our study we conclude that polycystic syndrome is predominant in young age people than in adolescent people group. This leads to increase in risk for infertility, obesity and cardiovascular disease. Hormonal therapy and Miscellaneous therapy are effective in PCOS and over two-third of patients had restoration of their individual symptoms.
