What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)? Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder commonly affecting females of reproductive age. It involves the ovaries producing higher levels of androgens (male hormones) than usual, leading to irregular menstrual cycles, cysts on the ovaries, and various other symptoms. Prevalence of PCOS: PCOS is a prevalent hormonal disorder among women. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, an estimated 5-10% of women are affected by PCOS. The exact prevalence varies based on factors such as ethnicity and diagnostic criteria. Treatment Options for PCOS: Managing PCOS involves a multidisciplinary approach. Lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress, can help regulate hormones and improve symptoms. Medications like birth control pills, hormone therapy, and insulin-sensitizing medications may also be prescribed to manage symptoms and restore hormonal balance.
