Cause

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a hormonal disorder characterized by incomplete development of Graafian follicles in the ovary due to inadequate secretion of luteinizing hormone, hence the follicles fail to ovulate and remain as multiple cysts distending the ovary.

Effect (Symptoms)

The effects of polycystic ovarian syndrome can include further hormone imbalances resulting in obesity, hirsutism and acne. The woman is also infertile due to the lack of ovulation.

The treatment is administration of the appropriate hormones.
