Condition analysis:
This primarily genetic disorder affects only women and is also called hyperandrogenic anovulation. It is a disorder that affects the endocrine system, meaning that this disorder is hormonal in nature. In fact, the main characterization of polycystic ovary syndrome is anovulation, which means that a woman does not release an oocyte or experience a menstrual period. Also, someone suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome has high levels of androgenic hormones and also suffers from insulin resistance, which is a major cause of Diabetes. Those three primary symptoms are not where this disorder ends, as they can each cause other secondary symptoms that are not only more visible and difficult to manage, but also dangerous in their own right. Anovulation results in irregular menstruation and can even cause infertility, while the hormonal imbalance causes acne and atypical growth of hair and body parts. Finally, insulin resistance can easily lead to Type 2 Diabetes, in addition to weight gain and cardiovascular complications.

1. Fenugreek
Fenugreek has long been associated with the management of diabetes, which makes it ideal for treating polycystic ovary syndrome as well. By optimizing glucose metabolism in the body and ensuring that insulin receptors operate normally, it can protect someone suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome from developing Type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, by regulating glucose metabolism, it can help to prevent weight gain and overeating, as nutrients will be used in an effective and timely manner by the body.

2. Flaxseed
Flaxseed has two very important roles in the management of polycystic ovary syndrome. Firstly, flaxseed decreases androgen levels in the body, which is essential for women who want to avoid hirsutism. Secondly, flaxseed stimulates the production of sex hormone binding globulin, which binds with testosterone in the bloodstream, thereby preventing it from impacting other parts of the body and creating some of the secondary symptoms in women that can make life so difficult with this disorder.

3. Licorice
Licorice attacks polycystic ovary syndrome from a number of different directions. Research has shown that one of the active ingredients in licorice inhibits a key enzyme necessary for testosterone production. Furthermore, licorice root can help to stimulate menstruation and it detoxifies the liver, which is closely connected to hormonal imbalance.
