Polycystic Ovary (PO) is a common clinical condition which belongs to pre-clinical condition, and one out of firth girls is involved in this condition by medical report. PO is not a severe disease, but it is possible to turn to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) which is organic complicated hormonal disorder which will make many symptoms in the clinic.
Dr Jiang believes that we should separate PO from PCOS. The patient with PO may only manifests a delayer menstrual circle, although it is possible to cause infertility, but it should easier to regulate with acupuncture and herbal medicine; PCOS which has occurred will be harder to treat. So we should pay attention to the ladies in the stage of PO, help them and make PCOS prevent.
Case study 1: A couple with infertility caused from the lady with polycystic ovary syndrome and her husband with a minor sperm disorder is cured to have a pregnancy.
Mrs A. C. who is a nutritionist, 32 years old has been trying a pregnancy for 3 years without result. Since she starts her period when she was 14 years old, she has always been her menstrual circles between 32 to 56 days. She took contraceptive pills when she was 18 years old and stopped it 3 years ago. Then she has irregular period again, and often occurs amenorrhea.
Gynaecological consultant diagnoses PCOS to her and gives her 10 months of Clomifene Citrate which makes her period regularly come, but it still has 5-6 weeks of menstrual circles, and heavier period, but no pain.
