What is PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)? - Symptoms ,Causes ,Treatment
PCOS is mainly a disease leading to ovulatory dysfunction, making it difficult for a female to understand naturally. It may affect 10-15% of women in their procreative years. It is seen very regularly in obese or overweight women. The term ‘polycystic’ (PCOS) does not mean there are many sores but there are multiple follicles which are minute formations that include eggs. They have more eggs than normal women. The strange hormonal environment causes disturbance that does not let a single egg grow and develop in time to ovulate. The follicles may start to grow and make up fluid but ovulation does not happen. In a few cases, some follicles remain cysts in the ovaries.
