Increasing number of young ladies are coming with complaints of irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, and hirsutism, which generally represent the classic picture of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Disease). In Ayurveda, PCOS is described as a disease which involves all three doshas, the dhatus rasa, rakta, meda and shukra, and the srotas rasavahva, raktavaha, shukravaha and aartavavaha. Dushti of these srotasa result in anaratava, vandhyatva and abeeja rutuchakra.
We present and describe a case report of a young girl with PCOS who was successfully treated with specific Ayurvedic drugs like Arogya vardhini wati and tablet M2Tone, and life style changes as per Ayurvedic granths.
Based on the clinical findings, the treatment principles adopted were aampachan, vatanuloman, kaphapittahar and aartavjanan. It was observed that sincere use of Ayurvedic principles enabled not only successful treatment of PCOS, but also avoided its recurrence (apunarbhav).
