Pcos

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the presence of multiple small cysts on the ovaries, irregular menstrual cycles, and elevated levels of androgen hormones. The exact cause of PCOS is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Common symptoms of PCOS include irregular or absent periods, excessive hair growth, acne, weight gain, and infertility. Women with PCOS may also experience metabolic disturbances, such as insulin resistance and increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Management of PCOS typically involves lifestyle modifications, such as maintaining a healthy weight, regular exercise, and medication to regulate menstrual cycles and manage specific symptoms.
