In India amongst every 10 women there is one suffering from PCOD and it is most common in case of teenagers.
What is PCOD?
PCOD is a condition of irregular periods occurring in women which is related to the ovaries. From the moment when a female starts having a menstrual cycle i.e. from the age of 12 upto the stage of menopause i.e. at the stage of 50, every month ovum is released in the ovaries of a female. Sometimes due to the improper/reduced growth, the ovum is left away in the ovary in the form of cyst. Due to such repeated action many cyst like structure are collected in the ovaries which causes the ovary to swell. This also causes painful menses. In order to have a regular menstrual cycle the growth of ovum on time and its release after that is very much required or else due to the improper growth of the ovum it is more likely to not get pregnant and have irregular menstrual cycle. This is what is known as P.C.O.D [Polycystic ovarian disease ].
Due to this disease feminism starts reducing where as there is an increase in male hormones, which leads to irregular menstrual cycle. In some cases the occurrence of menstrual cycle depends completely on medication where as during the menstrual cycle their is increased or reduced flow of blood.
