Prev post1 of 3Next Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common condition related to a hormonal imbalance in women of reproductive age. It is characterized by high levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. Researchers have also linked insulin to PCOS because many women with this condition also have too much insulin in their bodies.
As women age, various genetic and hormonal disorders affect the life and health of the women. One such hormonal imbalance-related disorder that affects women is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). In this syndrome, fluid-filled cysts fill the ovary. The ovaries get enlarged and stop functioning normally. It affects 10% of women who have reached their reproductive age.
