PCOS – polycystic ovarian syndrome

PCOD – Polycystic ovarian disease

PCOS or PCOD is a medical condition in which a woman’s sex hormone level— Estrogen and Progesterone, become imbalanced and affects the functioning of the ovaries. As a result, the monthly ovulation may not happen because ovaries fail to release the mature egg. Thereby, disturbing the menstrual cycle.

Missed or irregular periods may result in solid or fluid-filled sac within or on the surface of an ovary called – Cyst. Because the cysts grow only in or on the ovaries it is called ovarian cyst. Not just one, but multiple cysts grow in or on the ovaries and hence it is called Poly cysts.
