What is PCOS?
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a common
    condition prevailing in women of reproductive
    age. PCOS can develop any time after a woman has
    had her first period (known as menarche). There
    are numerous instances where PCOS development can
    occur in later reproductive years, as a response
    to certain hormonal factor.  PCOS has various
    signs and symptoms-one felt by the patient, and
    one deduced by the doctor on thorough examination
    and medical counseling.
