Polycystic ovaries have many harmless follicles that are around 8mm in size. The follicles are actually under-developed containers in which eggs grow. In Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, these containers often fail to produce an egg, which is a clear indication that ovulation isn’t taking place.
The exact reason behind the occurrence of PCOS is unknown. However, if early diagnosis is done and proper treatment is provided, along with weight loss, then it can decrease the risk of developing some long-term health issues, like diabetes (type 2) and heart disease.
It’s a bit difficult to know exactly how many women are suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, but it’s thought to be affecting nearly 1 in every 5 women in India.
