Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOD) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is a common condition that affects up to 1 in 10 women worldwide.
PCOD is characterized by the presence of multiple small cysts on the ovaries, which can cause hormonal imbalances leading to a range of symptoms. These can include irregular periods, heavy periods, acne, excess hair growth, weight gain, and infertility.
The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it is thought to be related to insulin resistance and high levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. Other risk factors for developing PCOD include a family history of the condition, being overweight or obese, and having certain medical conditions such as diabetes or thyroid disorders.
Treatment for PCOD can include lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise, as well as medications to regulate menstrual cycles, reduce androgen levels, and promote ovulation. Women with PCOD who are trying to conceive may also require fertility treatments such as assisted reproductive technologies (ART).
