High testosterone levels, irregular menstrual periods, and/or small cysts on one or both ovaries are all symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). In PCOS individuals, the levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and gonadotropin–releasing hormone (GnRH) have been shown to be greater.


Obesity, menstrual abnormalities, and hyperandrogenism are all indications of polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD), a multisystem endocrine condition that affects women of reproductive age.[1] It is the most common reproductive endocrine condition in women[2]. Polycystic ovarian syndrome may be caused by both inherited and environmental causes.[4]


Both ovaries are enlarged macroscopically, however one PCOS ovary is also diagnostic. A thick tunica albuginea capsule may be seen on the ovary. Although the ovary's surface is lobulated, the peritoneal surface is devoid of adhesions.

Multiple cysts (12 or more) ranging in size from 2 to 9 mm are scattered across the ovary's surface, giving it a 'neck lace' look on ultrasound. These are atretic follicles that don't go away. The rise in the size of the ovary, which is greater than 10 cm' in volume, is due to theca cell hyperplasia and stromal hyperplasia.


  1. Oligomenorrhoea, amenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding (All types of irregularities are   more common in obese patients than in lean patients),
  2.  Infertility
  3. Obesity
  4. Hirsutism
  5. Acne
  6. Polycystic Ovary in ultrasonography

Other clinical features include:
  1. Breast size has shrunk.
  2. Lack of sexual desire
  3. Achordonosis (skin tags) — little skin flaps on the eyelids, neck, armpits, and groins.
  4. Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  5. Emotional ups and downs Anxiety and depression
  6. Acanthosis nigricans
  7. Alopecia areata (male pattern alopecia) is a condition that affects

            1. Aconite The menses are repressed or the flow may be abundant, suggesting active bleeding, with great excitability, restlessness, dread of death, and intense labor, comparable to pressing colic, which pushes her to bend double but offers no comfort.

The menses are dark, black, and thick, like pitch.

            4. Coccus Cacti.-Only in the evenings and at night, while lying down, a copious, regular, and prolonged flow of dark, thick blood, passing large black clots that make urination difficult until they pass out, and intense pains in the lower abdomen, first on the right, then on the left.
