What is Polycystic Ovarian Disease?
PCOD or Polycystic Ovarian Disease is a hormonal abnormality with a metabolic and endocrine disorder. The disorder affects women of reproductive age groups between 12-45 years. The disease may occur in any age group after menarche to menopause. Every 1 out of 10 females suffers from PCOD in the world.
The disease causes excessive production of male hormones or androgens. The ovaries enlarge and discharge partial or immature eggs. As a result, the eggs turn into cysts. These cysts tend to create complications in female reproductive systems and can even cause infertility.
