What is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age.

It is very important to monitor the women having PCOS since females with these conditions are likely to suffer from miscarriages. Infertility & Pregnancy complications such as premature delivery and gestational diabetes are some of these adverse effects that a person having PCOS suffers from. 

Female Infertility issues are very common in women suffering from PCOS who also find difficulty in getting pregnant without the help of their doctor. About 8 to 10% of women who are in their reproductive age suffer from PCOS, with percentage being higher in Indian Population. 

PCOS is a hormonal condition that affects many women of reproductive age. This condition causes infrequent or extended periods by disrupting the hormonal balance by increasing the production of male hormones (androgen). This causes cysts to develop inside the ovaries, causing PCOS follicles containing immature eggs to grow and not mature. Failure to develop mature eggs can interfere with ovulation, resulting in infertility.
