• Ways To Manage Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

    Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a health condition that affects a woman’s menstrual cycle, physical appearance, overall health and ability to bear children. When a woman has PCOS, they will have a higher level of the male hormone -- androgen, missed periods and cysts. This is usually found in women in the child bearing age.

    The main cause of PCOS has not been identified yet. But, there are a few factors such as hormonal imbalance that may be causing it.

    The basic problem of having a PCOS is that it doesn’t allow the ovary to make all the hormones that are required for the egg to mature properly; which in turn will not allow the woman to bear a child.

    Best Ways To Manage PCOD

    If you need to identify if you have PCOS or if the symptoms are caused by something else, there are a few basic things that your doctor will check. Those are your medical history, physical exam, pelvic exam, blood test and a scan. There is no cure for PCOS, but it can be managed. Below are a few ways to manage polycystic ovarian syndrome.

    Living Healthy

    To help manage polycystic ovarian syndrome, a healthy and a balanced diet is very essential. Women with PCOS are usually very obese and this in turn can cause health problems. This can be managed by eating healthy, proper fruits and vegetables. A high fibre diet will also help.

    Birth Control Pills

    Another way to manage polycystic ovarian syndrome is to use birth control pills. This will help control the menstrual cycle and reduce the male hormone. But once this is used on a regular basis, there is no chance of bearing a baby. For women who don’t want to bear a child, this is a good solution to PCOS.

    Insulin Medication

    The diabetic treatments that are used for type 2 diabetes can also control the PCOS. It will control the sugar levels and also help reduce the testosterone hormone production. This will also help the reduction of hair growth and this might also help ovulation to return.

    Fertility Medication

    Fertility medications can be helpful in the lack of ovulation; this can be one of the main reasons for the fertility problems in women. There can be various treatment options that can be done to help improve the ovulation and help women bear a child. The IVF is the most effective treatment to get pregnant.


    This option is used when women do not respond to fertility medication. The procedure is called ovulation drilling to increase the chance of ovulation and decrease the level of male hormones. This is only a temporary fix and may last only for a few months.

    There are different ways to manage polycystic ovarian syndrome. It will depend on the intensity of the male hormone production and whether you want to bear a child. A healthy diet will usually help to a great extent to manage PCOS.Read more at:www.marieprom.co.uk/long-prom-dresses

    On the second day of Paris fashion week, Alexander Wang unveiled his latest collection for the high-brow label to a star-studded audience that included Kim Kardashian and Kanye West together with their baby girl North West.The 14-month-old’s front-row debut caused a ripple of excitement at the packed catwalk show which was also attended by Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld who both showered baby North with affection.

    The pint-sized style plate remained calm throughout, despite the outlandish production during which the tented venue was transformed into a nightclub, complete with pumping house music and transparent Perspex floors with smoke swirling beneath.

    But it was business as usual on the catwalk as New-York based Wang cemented his place as one of Paris’s most significant fashion players with an offering that celebrated his signature approach to contemporary urban design.

    Rich with the sportswear detailing for which his eponymous label is renowned, Wang succeeded in stamping his identity onto the fashion house while paying homage to its legacy.

    A largely monochrome palette was punctuated with shades of dusky pink and violet. Lattice dresses, white-trimmed tabards layered over sheer tube skirts and floor sweeping sleeveless jackets provided a looser, more relaxed silhouette than witnessed in previous seasons.

    This effortless aestehtic was emphasised by pointed flats and cut-away leather sandals - heels were notably absent from this collection.

    In a nod to the fashion house’s signature structural silhouette, Wang unveiled with moulded cropped jackets, sharp off-the-shoulder necklines and high waisted cigarette trousers. Graphic diamond detailing featured on beaded embroidery, zip front bodices and as appliqué fringing on pencil skirts.

    Wang has form when it comes to pioneering an aesthetic that translates to booming sales making him a no brainer appointment for high-street giant H&M which unveils a collaboration with the designer next month. His breed of clothing is high-fashion with major commercial appeal. And this latest collection is no exception.Read more at:vintage prom dresses uk

  • Paris fashion set to dazzle, Gaultier’s goodbye to ready-to-wear

    Flamboyant designer Jean Paul Gaultier's last ready-to-wear show will provide an emotional highlight of nine days of fashion collections due to get underway in Paris today.

    The 62-year-old showman of the catwalks is to bow out of ready-to-wear after nearly 40 years to concentrate on his couture collections.

    The designer has said the decision was taken after an “in-depth assessment” of his eponymous fashion house's future with Spanish fragrance and fashion group Puig, which has a majority stake.

    Gaultier's last show, which will be held on Saturday, is one of over 90 scheduled for the next week-and-a-half.

    After New York, London and Milan, other highlights will be first collections by Georgia's David Koma for Mugler and France's Julie de Libran for Sonia Rykiel.

    Three names also making their debut in the Paris ready-to wear calendar are Japan's Anrealage, the US's Hood by Air and India's Rahul Mishra.

    Stephane Wargnier, new executive president of the French Federation of Couture, said Gaultier's last show was likely to be spectacular and upbeat, albeit tinged with sadness.

    “Everyone will want to be there and I think it's certainly going to be a very moving moment,” he said.

    In recent years Gaultier, considered one of France's most talented designers, has been the subject of a major retrospective by the Museum of Fine Arts in Montreal.

    Since 2011, the exhibition has been seen by a million visitors worldwide and is due to arrive in Paris in 2015.

    One room in the exhibition is devoted to “Eurotrash,” the outlandish adult television show hosted by Gaultier and Antoine de Caunes on Britain's Channel 4 during the 1990s.

    The designer said earlier this month that “commercial constraints as well as the frenetic pace of collections” had left him little freedom to explore fresh ideas and innovate.

    “The pace is harder than in the past, retail demands several deliveries per season, so we are no longer in an era when one calmly does a collection every six months,” Wargnier said.

    “It's the way it is in fashion now and everyone adapts in their own way,” he added.Read more at:www.marieprom.co.uk/green-prom-dresses
