The body creates extra insulin to compensate for it, but it contributes to the production and activity of the male hormone androgen (hyperandrogenism).

In PCOS, ovaries produce an increased amount of androgen in females, which is responsible for symptoms such as increased hair growth, deep voice, etc., in women.

Polycystic ovaries causes

The name polycystic ovaries indicate the presence of multiple cysts (fluid-filled sacs) formation in the ovaries. However, some women with PCOS do not have cysts, and some women with these cysts do not have PCOS. When ovulation occurs, a mature egg is discharged from the ovary. When the egg is not fertilized, it leaves your body during the menstrual cycle. In some cases, when enough hormones are not secreted to ovulate and ovulation does not occur, ovaries can develop small cysts. These small cysts secrete androgens; women with PCOS have higher levels of androgens. The best PCOS treatment can help manage androgen levels and regulate the menstrual cycle.
