Common "Pcos" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq


PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which is a common hormonal problem seen in females in the reproductive age. Here, the ovaries fail to release eggs regularly because of the formation of many small fluid-filled follicles in them. Women with PCOS have irregular menstrual periods, and the levels of androgen (male sex hormone) are elevated.
