Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a most common hormonal disease in women. It affects 5 to 10% of women during their reproductive age.
Polycystic ovarian syndrome, also known as Stein-Leventhal syndrome or hyperandrogenic anovulation is a disorder that is commonly caused due to imbalances in the functioning of the endocrine system. The causes of PCOS are not completely understood.
The ovaries of women with PCOS are enlarged and filled with small aggregations of fluid called follicles. These can be detected during an ultrasound examination. If PCOS is diagnosed and treated early, it will help avoiding long-term complications, such as infertility, heart disease or type II diabetes in females.
