Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease is a heterogeneous multisystem endocrinopathy in women of reproductive age with the ovarian expression of various metabolic disturbances and clinical features like hyperandrogenism, chronic anovulation, and obesity, resulting from insulin resistance and the compensatory hyperinsulinemia. Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease is a condition where cysts on the ovaries are present that prevent the ovaries from performing normally. On the basis of ultrasound evaluation there will be presence of peripherally tiny follicles. Clinically the PCOS can be understood based on assessment for Granthibhuta aartava dushti. PCOS can be correlated with Aartava kshaya, Arajaska Yonivyapad, Lohitakshaya Yonivyapad, Shushka Yonivyapad and Shandhi Yonivyapad. PCOD affects 5 - 6% women in childbearing age and is increasing due to change in lifestyle and stress. It is also becoming the common problem in adolescents. So, the management of PCOD is very helpful when it is done by the way which doesn’t affect other hormonal levels and without any further complications. In Ayurveda there are some medications and treatment protocols which are very helpful to manage the PCOS in such a way that doesn’t affect the health of woman. Also, ayurvedic management of PCOS gives relief in other features of disease like Obesity. So, here attempt has been made for the management of Granthibhuta aartava dushti w.s.r. to PCOD.
