Author(s):

Abstract:
The most prevalent endocrine condition in females with a high frequency is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Resulting from hormonal abnormalities, swollen ovaries and tiny cysts on the edge. Thought to be brought on by a confluence of hereditary and environmental variables, the aetiology of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is yet unknown. The most frequent hormonal disorder in women is PCOS. An endocrine condition known as PCOS affects several physical processes, impairing development, metabolism, and mental health. In 1935, Stein and Leventhal made the discovery of PCOS after studying a lady who had hirsutism, obesity, irregular menstruation, and cysts in her ovaries. These women were originally referred to as "freaks" or "bearded women/ladies" ten years ago. It is believed that the hormones androgen, testosterone, progesterone, and oestrogen are uncontrolled with PCOS.
