The Story of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome: A Challenging Disorder with Numerous Consequences for Females of Reproductive Age
As the name implies, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a chronic hormonal disorder that mostly affects women of childbearing age. However, symptoms suggestive of androgen overproduction and ovarian dysfunction have been identified. It's a huge public health issue. Women with PCOS are more likely to have co-occurring diseases, as well as various other long-term metabolic and health issues. Prevalence has risen steadily during the last decade, and it's expected to continue rising. Many health care providers and individuals might avoid it if they shared more information. Everything from the initial diagnosis to pathogenesis to effects and treatment options is still up for debate. The study's purpose is to provide a detailed analysis of current and upcoming diagnostic tools, as well as speculate on future strategies. We searched the Cochrane database for systematic reviews and meta-analyses, as well as the most recent international recommendations, to get a fresh look at PCOS.
