Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects women of reproductive age, characterized by high levels of male hormones (androgens) in the body leading to symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, weight gain, and infertility. It is a common hormonal disorder, affecting up to 10% of women of childbearing age.

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it is believed to be related to insulin resistance, where the body's cells do not respond correctly to insulin, leading to increased androgen production and PCOS symptoms. Genetics also play a role, as the condition can run in families, and lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise can impact symptoms.

Symptoms of PCOS can vary, and not all women may experience all of them. Common symptoms include irregular periods or no periods, excessive hair growth on the face, chest, and stomach, acne, weight gain or difficulty losing weight, infertility, male-pattern baldness or thinning hair, and darkening of the skin in areas such as the neck, groin, and underarms.

Diagnosing PCOS can be difficult, as there is no single test that can confirm the condition. Instead, doctors typically look for a combination of symptoms, as well as cysts on the ovaries, which are a common sign of PCOS.

While there is no cure for PCOS, several treatment options are available to manage symptoms and improve overall health. These include lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and regular exercise, medications such as birth control pills, metformin, and anti-androgens, fertility treatments like clomiphene or letrozole, and surgery to remove ovarian cysts in rare cases.

Living with PCOS can be challenging, but women can manage their symptoms and improve their overall health by maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine and finding ways to manage stress, such as meditation, yoga, or other relaxation techniques.
