Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal condition that interferes with the working of the ovary and thereby disrupting the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Normally, about 5 follicles mature in every menstrual cycle and at least one releases an egg, while PCOS causes double the number of follicles to mature but do not release any egg. This disrupts the menstrual cycle and the chances of getting pregnant. Luckily, there are treatments available to reverse this condition although the cause of PCOS is uncertain.
