Basic science behind PCOD

Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD), also known as Polycystic Ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a very common condition affecting 5% to 10% of women in the age group 12–45 years.

What we need to understand from the name is “it is the presence of multiple cysts ( in this context cyst is immature follicle consisting of egg) with in the ovary but every women with this condition don’t have cysts”.

PCOD is genetically inherited or acquired due to poor lifestyle( obesity , junk foods , lack of physical activity)  or environmental factors.

“Women with obesity are prone for PCOS mostly and women with PCOS are obese”

PATHOGENESIS

Your ovaries are stimulated by EXCESSIVE INSULIN or hormone called LH to produce high levels of androgens ie male hormones which effects the maturation and release of ovum and this is reason for irregular periods.

Obesity means presence of excessive fat tissue subcutaneously. Fat tissue has special enzyme that convert small amounts of male hormones in women body to female hormone estrogen. So logically speaking there will be spike of androgens ,estrogens  and these both are the culprits in failure of ovum maturation.
