Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Symptoms & Test in India


What is PCOS?

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a genetic, hormonal, metabolic and reproductive disorder that affects adolescent girls and women of reproductive age. It is the most common health problem in females caused by an imbalance of hormones. Generally symptoms of PCOS begin during the teenage years around the start of menstruation and can be mild or severe. PCOS may also develop later during the reproductive years, for instance, in response to substantial weight gain. Any girl, irrespective of physique, may have PCOS. 

The following parameters are highly related to the condition:

  • Obesity
