When women, who are going through premenopause, have sore ovaries, they often encounter a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Women rarely have this condition during menopause and doctors often take it seriously because the cysts may be malignant in nature.
However, it is very painful to have this syndrome and they can get frequent cramps and put on abnormal weight especially around the abdomen. The male hormone levels start increasing in the body and they exhibit male-like weight patterns. Women show increased hair growth on chin, stomach and also the chest. Other symptoms include acne, dandruff, and hair loss. Some women may also have type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. They may also have high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
However, talking to the doctor about your condition may give you relief because PCOS can be treated at any stage in life. Because you have reached the menopause stage, the doctor may take it rather seriously. However, most scan reports of women who have reached menopause stage do not show the sore ovaries and ovarian cysts. This is another problem that comes in the way of diagnosis. That is why the doctors may have to do other complicated tests to rule out the possibilities of ovarian cancer.
Menopause and ovaries have a very close relationship and it is very important to understand what kind of effect the ovaries are having on menopause. Also, menopause sets in because the ovaries cease their function and it is very important for women to understand this.
