About PCOS - POCD

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder in women during the reproductive age. It is the condition when female ovaries tend to make more of the male hormones as compared to female hormones.

If the condition is not treated on time, it can lead to serious problems like type 2 diabetes, obesity, infertility, etc. Women suffering from PCOS may have irregular, infrequent or prolonged menstrual cycles and excess male hormone (androgen) levels leading to abnormal hair growth.
