Best Gyanecologist in Gurgaon IndiaPolycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) affects 4% to 12% of women of reproductive age. The lack of well-defined diagnostic criteria makes identification of this common disease confusing to many clinicians.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) happens when a woman's ovaries or adrenal glands produce more male hormones than normal says Dr Nidhi Aggarwal. PCOS causes cysts (fluid-filled sacs) to grow on the ovaries.

Excess hair growth on the face, chest, stomach, or thighs

Weight gain

Acne or oily skin

Patches of thickened skin

According to Dr Nidhi Aggarwal women with PCOS are at higher risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and high blood pressure. PCOS is more common in women who are obese, or have a mother or sister with PCOS. To diagnose PCOS your health care provider may do a physical exam, pelvic exam, blood tests, and an ultrasound.


Furthermore, the most distressing aspect of PCOS for any given patient may change over time, from hirsutism as a teenager to infertility. There is no cure, but diet, exercise, and medicines can help control the symptoms. Birth control pills help women have normal periods, reduce male hormone levels, and clear acne. Treatments for infertility caused by PCOS may include medicines, surgery, and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
