Effects of yogic practices on levels of testosterone and polycystic ovarian syndrome women

AUTHOR(S): Sumitra Patil Kulkarni, Dr. CV Jayanthy and Dr. S Natarajan
ABSTRACT:
Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common endocrine disorder problem caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones, characterized by menstrual irregularity and elevated serum androgens, and is often accompanied by insulin resistance among females. The hormonal imbalance enhances problems in the ovaries. The etiology of PCOS is still unknown. Yogic practices are recommended for women with PCOS to maintain a proper hormonal balance.
Purpose: To review the levels of effects of yogic practices on testosterone in polycystic ovarian syndrome women.
Methods: This study was conducted in a university-affiliated hospital from January 2023 to June 2023. Anthropometric parameters, sex hormone concentrations of the samples were analysed. A systematic review of original studies indexed in PubMed that utilized an exercise intervention in women with PCOS and reported hormone values pre- and post-intervention. Studies in which the effects of the yogic intervention could be determined were included.
Results: Fifty PCOS patients were recruited in this study. Yogic practices improve levels of testosterone in polycystic ovarian syndrome in women with PCOS. Studies with yoga are limited but suggest a reduction in levels of testosterone.
Conclusions: Recommended yogic practices help to normalize the levels of testosterone in polycystic ovarian syndrome women.
