PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is a hormonal disorder that affects millions of women around the world. Obesity, hyperandrogenism, and insulin resistance have all been identified as key triggering factors for PCOS, despite the fact that the exact cause is unknown. PCOS symptoms include menstrual irregularities, acne, hirsutism, a predisposition to central obesity, and insulin resistance symptoms. The clinical signs and implications of PCOS are treated with reduced body weight, androgen-lowering medicines, insulin-lowering medicines, and surgical procedures. The purpose of this chapter is to provide information about PCOS, including its prevalence, etiological causes, aetiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic tools, treatment options, and prognosis, in light of contemporary trends.
