Polycystic ovary syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome

This disorder is characterised by increase in the androgenic (male) hormones especially testosterone in some women. This leads to defective production of eggs, which modify into cysts (fluid-filled structure). As more and more cysts are formed, the egg formation is reduced. This, in turn disrupts the hormonal cycle which involves hormone production by hypothalamus, pituitary gland and ovaries, resulting in many abnormalities in the affected woman.
