Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), also known as Stein-Leventhal Syndrome is a common medical condition affecting women. The term “syndrome” means to say that the condition produces a set of interrelated signs and symptoms which we will discuss later on.
According to the PCOS Australian Alliance, 12-21% of women in reproductive age group are diagnosed with PCOS. The statistics also noted that the condition is more common in overweight and obese women.
Another study led by the University of Adelaide also adds that a striking 68-69% of women suffering from PCOS remain undiagnosed. The condition certainly is a frustrating experience for women but luckily it could be managed with proper diet, nutrition, and exercise.
