What is PCOS?

PCOS: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome 

It is a hormonal medical issue that occurs in a female during the reproductive years. Though the causes are unknown, it is suspected that genetic as well as environmental factors are involved.

In this condition, the ovaries produce an abnormal level of androgens (these are male sex hormones that naturally occur in females but in small amounts). This may cause many small cysts that form in ovaries which might occur in other medical issues as well.

If you suspect you might have any hormonal issues, then you can visit Scientific Pathology’s website and book for an appointment to get tested as it is the largest and the best pathology lab in Uttar Pradesh!
