PCOD stands for Polycystic Ovary Disease. It is caused when there is a hormonal imbalance in women. They produce extra amounts of androgen, which is a male sex hormone. The secretion of this hormone makes them skip their periods and also causes difficulty in conception for pregnancy. Also, under this condition, there are many small, fluid-filled sacs that grow inside the ovaries, thus, referring to it as 'polycystic'.
It is generally caused during the child-bearing years, that is, from the age of 15 to 44. Let us understand the symptoms that women should look for, as there are statistics that 70 percent of women are not aware that they suffer from PCOD.
