Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the presence of multiple small cysts on the ovaries, which can disrupt the normal menstrual cycle and cause a range of other symptoms.
The exact cause of PCOS is not known, but it is believed to be related to insulin resistance, which is a condition in which the body’s cells do not respond properly to insulin. This causes the pancreas to produce more insulin, which can lead to higher levels of androgens (male hormones) in the body. High levels of androgens can cause the ovaries to produce more follicles than normal, which can result in the cysts associated with PCOS.
Other factors that may contribute to PCOS include genetics, inflammation, and environmental factors.
