  • Abstract

    Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is also known as polycystic ovarian disease. It is the most common female endocrine disorder prevalent. The prime factor of this disease is that the hormone levels are unbalanced. Women with PCOS typically have high levels of androgens, also known as male hormones. They also have higher levels of insulin production that can result in excess weight gain. It also has an uncertain etiology, and it is a serious threat that woman having PCOS will have an irregular menstrual cycle and they have difficulties in even getting pregnant. Some studies have also shown women with PCOS to be at higher risk for suicide due to lower self-esteem as well as prone to endometrial, ovarian, and breast cancer. PCOS affects the quality of life and can worsen anxiety and depression either due to the features of PCOS or due to the diagnosis of a chronic illness. Moreover, its prevention is impossible; however, we can reduce the risk of this disease by having an active lifestyle and by consuming a proper and nutritious diet.
