Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is very common these days. This is a condition in which cysts form in the ovaries. As the name suggests ("polycystic" means "many cysts"), PCOS causes many small fluid-filled sacs to grow on the ovaries. Each of these sacs is actually a follicle because each one contains an immature egg. The egg is not mature enough to trigger ovulation.

Women take a lot of medications and treatment just to keep the condition under control, but did you know there are home remedies for it too?

Home Remedies for PCOS

Here is the list of home remedies used for the treatment of PCOS in female

Fenugreek (Methi seeds)- In women diagnosed with PCOS, the insulin secreted by the pancreas is not used efficiently by the tissues, leading to obesity and excess testosterone production. Consuming fenugreek leaves or seeds helps maintain normal insulin levels. For this, Soak methi seeds overnight and drink three times a day - in the morning on an empty stomach and five minutes before lunch and dinner. You can also consume methi leaves as vegetable.

Flax seeds- These seeds are an excellent source of fiber, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and lignans, proteins that reduce the amount of testosterone available in our bodies. Flaxseeds help the body use glucose and insulin and eliminate most of the side effects of PCOS. The seeds can be powdered and added to your breakfast or mixed with juice. You can also add it to your drinking water every day.
