UNDERSTANDING polycystic ovary syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex hormonal disorder that affects many women worldwide. It is characterized by hormonal imbalances and the presence of small cysts on the ovaries, leading to a range of symptoms and potential health complications. PCOS can impact various aspects of a woman’s life, including menstrual cycles, fertility, and overall well-being.
The exact cause of PCOS is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Insulin resistance, excessive androgen production, and imbalances in reproductive hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, play a significant role in the development and progression of PCOS. Managing PCOS requires a comprehensive approach that focuses on addressing hormonal imbalances, reducing symptoms, and promoting overall health and well-being.
