Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOD) is a condition where there is an imbalance in the hormone level of a woman. Women with PCOD produce higher than usual amounts of male hormones. This hormonal imbalance has many side-effects, like:
- no or irregular periods
- tough to getting pregnant
- extreme hair growth on the face, chest, back or buttocks
- weight gain
- hair loss
- oily skin or acne
PCOD has no permanent cure but can be managed by proper medication and by following the right diet.
