PCOD & Prenatal Yoga

PCOD means Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease. As the name suggests it is a condition in which both ovaries have multiple cysts.

(Normally 8-10 follicles develop in one menstrual cycle with one dominant follicle growing & releasing ovum on 14th or 15th day of cycle.)

PCOD is due to multiple factors playing together. They are obesity, lack of exercise, stressful conditions etc. The normal hormonal cyclic pattern is lost in such cases, leading to lack of ovulation, acne, hirsutism, infertility.

Brisk walling for 30 min, selective Yogic Postures for reducing abdominal obesity, conscious relaxation – Pranayam – Dharana & Dhyan help to reduce the effects of stress.
