Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or polycystic ovarian disease is a very common problem among girls of reproductive age. It causes hormonal imbalance and metabolic disorder in females. The hormonal imbalance creates problems to ovaries. Women with PCOS grow multiple cysts on their ovaries, that is why called polycystic ovarian syndrome. The ovaries make the egg that releases each month as a part of a healthy menstrual cycle. Women if suffering from PCOS then the egg may not develop or may not be released during ovulation. This causes irregularity in monthly menstrual cycles, and hormones get imbalanced. This hormonal imbalance further creates multiple health problems in women which can be taken as symptoms of PCOS. The exact PCOS cause is unknown.
