What is PCOS?
PCOS is considered the most common hormonal, metabolic and reproductive disorder among women of childbearing age.
Women suffering from PCOS produce high levels of androgens, also known as male hormones. In men, androgens are responsible for male traits like male-pattern baldness, whereas in women they are produced to be converted into female hormones or estrogens.
