There’s one thing that unites 5-10% of women all across the globe.
Wondering what it is?
PCOD is a condition where the hormones of a woman are out of balance and result in an ovarian disorder. It results in issues with menstrual periods and also affects fertility of the woman.
How does it happen, you must be wondering?
A lot of women do not know if they have PCOD or don’t. Just like every other condition, this one too has its signature symptoms. After all, it is famous.
So to the answer to the ‘how’ is that, the ovaries make female sex hormones and yes, also tiny amounts of male sex hormones which are called Androgens. Do not take this the wrong way. It is balanced and not harmful. The balance of these two hormones regulate the normal development of eggs in the ovaries during all menstrual cycles.
When there is an imbalance in these hormones, it is related to PCOD. This condition indicates that your ovaries are making more of these Androgens rather than female sex hormones. This results in women to stop ovulating, they get pimples and there is growth of facial hair.
There are small sacs within the ovaries that contains the eggs. These sacs are called Follicles. Usually one or more than one eggs are released during each menstrual cycle. This process is called ovulation. Or so you already know. But when in the Polycystic Ovarian Disease what happens is that the eggs do not mature and are not released instead they stay in the ovaries and form very small cysts inside it. Therefore the name, Polycystic Disease.
