Abstract PCOD/PCOS stands out as a prevalent endocrine and metabolic disorder frequently observed in women of reproductive age. This condition, characterised by symptoms of androgen excess and ovarian dysfunction in the absence of other diagnoses, presents a varied profile. While its exact cause remains unclear, emerging evidence suggests it as a complex condition influenced by multiple genes and significant epigenetic and environmental factors, including dietary and lifestyle elements. Menstrual irregularities and reproductive issues are primary manifestations of PCOS, often leading to infertility. Moreover, PCOS patients face a heightened risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, lipid metabolism disorders, and endometrial cancer, with incidences two to six times higher compared to the general population. Fortunately, PCOS diagnosis and management are straightforward, involving the prudent use of established diagnostic tests and targeted interventions to address hyperandrogenism, ovarian dysfunction, and associated metabolic irregularities.
