Quite simply, PCOS found in lean and thin women is referred to as Lean PCOS. Women with BMI of 25 kg/sq. mt. or lower falls into this category. Lean PCOS is characterized by insulin resistance, and hyperandrogenism. Common symptoms are male-pattern hair growth (hirsutism), acne, irregular periods, anovulation, infertility, and hair fall. Often the symptoms are milder compared to Obese PCOS. However, compared to a healthy woman, Lean PCOS symptoms are markedly significant.
Why you should be concerned about Lean PCOS?
Lean PCOS can be thought of as a precursor to Obese PCOS. Hence it is critical to manage it early on. Lean PCOS often goes undiagnosed. Close to 25%-30% of all PCOS cases are Lean PCOS. Most cases are able to manage it by employing home remedies, adopting appropriate lifestyle changes, and regular exercising.
Causes of Lean PCOS are not established by adequate studies. However, based on empirical evidence, the possible causes of Lean PCOS are listed below.
- Stress and anxiety: Stress and anxiety is found to be an overwhelming cause in Lean PCOS cases. Stress and anxiety is associated with insulin resistance, inflammation and high cortisol. All of these factors contribute into PCOS. Stress is also known to damage the immune system. Stress can originate from workplace, peer group, personal issues, family issues, lack of sleep, etc. Good part is, stress is avoidable.
- Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits: Unhealthy lifestyle habits play their part in causing PCOS. Common unhealthy lifestyle habits are: irregular sleep patterns, excessive smoking, excessive consumption of alcohol, drug abuse, excessive screen time, unhygienic living environment, regular exposure to hazardous elements through adulterated cosmetics and daily-use products, consuming excessive processed foods, etc.
- Lack of physical exercise: Maintaining weight may not be the priority in Lean PCOS. But keeping insulin resistance in check is of paramount importance. Lack of physical exercise worsens insulin resistance. Which in turn aggravates Lean PCOS.
- Unhealthy eating habits: Eating processed food. Consuming foods with high trans-fats. Skipping meals. Drinking too little water on daily basis. All of these seemingly small elements constitute unhealthy eating habits. And they contribute in a big way to the PCOS.
Lean PCOS symptoms are relatively mild compared to the classical phenotype of PCOS. Some of the prominent Lean PCOS symptoms are listed below.
- Irregular Periods: Irregular periods is an early sign of PCOS. Merely irregular periods are not sufficient for diagnosing PCOS. If you have irregular periods, you should watch out for other signs too. Ideally the period cycle has to be 28 days. Even if the cycle duration is seven days earlier or later, it is not a cause of concern. If the period cycle is less than 21 days or more than 35 days, it is categorized as Irregular Periods. Even the menstruation, and its pattern determines irregular periods. If there is no consistency in the menstruation including the quantity and quality of flow, and the duration of menstruation, it is categorized as irregular periods.

- Hirsutism: Lean PCOS is characterized by hyperandrogenism. Signs of hirsutism such as unwanted hair growth, and/or acne should be seen as a symptom of PCOS.
- Acne: As mentioned above, hormone imbalance and hyperandrogenism is prevalent in Lean PCOS. Symptoms like acne are the clinical indications of the same.
- Anovulation: Stress and insulin resistance in Lean PCOS women, suppresses development of dominant follicles in the ovaries. This leads to anovulation. Lack of ovulation is therefore a significant symptom of Lean PCOS.
- Hair fall: Hair fall, especially along the forehead, and hair thinning can be considered one of the symptoms of Lean PCOS.
- Infertility: Anovulation and irregular periods in PCOS leads to infertility in women. It is all the more stressful, as infertility in Lean PCOS is realized at quite a later stage when cases with have suppressed or mild symptoms.
- Insulin resistance: Lean PCOS cases are found to have more insulin resistance compared to healthy women. Sometimes it can be mild and hence elusive. In Lean PCOS with insulin resistance, the women have fat deposition around the lower waist, hips, and thigh areas. Circumference of waist, hips and thighs are used as preliminary indicators of insulin resistance in Lean PCOS. For instance, waist circumference of more than 80cm in Indian woman is one such indicator. However, standalone indicators may not be sufficient. Additionally, ratios such as waist-hip ration, and waist-height ratio are also used to ensure certainty. In Indian women, if the waist-hip ratio is greater than 0.8 then its an indication of high insulin resistance. Likewise, the waist-height ratio should not be greater than 0.5.
- Inflammation: Low grade inflammation is found in Lean PCOS. This may not be as significant as the one present in classical Obese PCOS. However, the inflammation markers are higher in Lean PCOS as compared to healthy women with no PCOS.
Home remedies for Lean PCOS is the best way to complement homeopathic treatment process. Home remedies help in accelerating the relief from Lean PCOS symptoms.
- Indulge in de-stressing: De-stressing lowers the level of cortisol (a stress hormone). Spending time with family and friends, following hobbies, music, meditation, fun outings, listening to your favorite music, etc. are some of the effective ways of de-stressing.
- Regular physical exercise: Regular physical exercise, particularly resistance training is found to be highly effective in Lean PCOS. It helps in managing the visceral fats, and strengthen muscles. Resistance training also helps in keeping androgen levels under control in Lean PCOS. Thereby it helps in regularizing the periods and normalizing ovulation. Reducing weight is out of question in Lean PCOS. That said, it is important to maintain the normal weight. Resistance training that you can easily do at home includes:
- Navasana (Boat pose),
- Utkatasana (Chair pose),
- Bhujangasana (Cobra pose),
- Follow discipline in diet: Make best use of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Follow a regular routine for meals. It helps in keeping the insulin resistance at check. Get your dose vitamin D from fish, eggs, and mushrooms. Vitamin D helps manage ovulation, menstruation, and overall metabolism. Deficiency of vitamin D is found in PCOS with insulin resistance.
- Get ample sleep: Ensure that you get ample sound sleep. ‘Early to bed and early to rise’ is the best mantra to follow. Follow a sleep time table religiously. Inadequate sleep makes a person lethargic throughout the day. Sleep deprivation invites other serious concerns such as insulin resistance, depression and heart problems.
- Processed food: Avoid processed food. Chemicals contributing artificial coloring, texture, and flavors to processed food triggers inflammation and contributes towards insulin resistance. It is important to minimize intake of trans-fats in Lean PCOS.
- Skipping meals: Skipping meals is the worst possible thing for your PCOS. Particularly in Lean PCOS, when your focus is to keep a check on the insulin resistance, you avoid skipping meals at any cost.
- Smoking and alcohol consumption: Avoid smoking and consumption of alcohol. It has been found to exacerbate the PCOS symptoms. Smoking is known to cause hormone imbalance which leads to hirsutism and acne. Alcohol when consumed in moderate quantity may be a threat to PCOS. However, excess of alcohol consumption brings about spikes in insulin levels. This is absolutely undesirable in PCOS.
