Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that disproportionately affects reproductive-aged women.

PCOS affects the menstrual cycle of women. They may suffer from irregular periods.

In this situation, a woman's body highly gets affected with androgen which is a male harmone.

Follicles, which are small collections of fluid that are produced by the ovaries, can occur and lead to irregular egg release. Follicles can also be caused by cysts.

PCOS is a condition for which the exact reason is unknown.

If the issue is identified and treated at an early stage, along with lowering weight, long-term complications like type 2 diabetes and heart disease can be avoided.

Irregular periods, polycystic ovaries and excess level of male harmone (androgen) are the symptoms of this hormonal disbalance.

Paying attention to a good diet and disciplined lifestyle maybe followed to lead the situation go normal.

When noticing worsening hirsutism (excess body hair than normal), irregular menstrual cycle and infertility, consult the doctor.
