PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) or PCOD (Polycystic Ovarian Disease) are generally interchangeably used even though they have very minute differences. While PCOS affects the metabolism of the body as a whole PCOD affects only the ovaries. PCOD disrupts the functioning of the female reproductive system and affects the fertility of a woman. The major cause of such disruptions and disease is the imbalance of hormones occurring in a female body.

The condition should be curbed when it comes to the fore to avoid bigger complications later. This condition generally occurs in middle-aged females who become mature enough to bear children, but it might show itself in adolescence too. It is also genetic. There are certain ways of ascertaining PCOD. If these conditions or symptoms of a PCOD are visible the person should consult a good medical consultant immediately.

1. Irregular periods
2. Extreme hair fall
3. Abnormal hair growth
4. Acne
5. Skin darkening
6. Obesity

Irregular periods may be due to PCOS but PCOD is a disorder of abnormal release of sex hormones. The female reproductive system has parts like ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus and vagina, each having specific functions to perform in the reproduction cycle. The ovaries hold the immature eggs. The functioning of the ovaries is determined by the pituitary gland. The communication between the two is through the production of hormones like the FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) and Luteinizing Hormone pumped into the bloodstream. These hormones mature the eggs and the follicle size increases. Simultaneously estrogen is released to release Luteinizing Hormone in the ovaries. Then the ovulation occurs with the most mature follicle releasing the egg. This is the normal process of ovulation but if you have PCOD then the pituitary gland releases an abnormal amount of Luteinizing Hormone which in turn does not allow the follicles to mature and thus it cannot ovulate. These follicles generally dissolve after ovulation but in this care may not dissolve and may form a cyst causing infertility. Another condition is when the pituitary gland secretes an abnormal amount of insulin which in turn initiates the secretion of high levels of testosterone. This imbalance in secretion prevents the ovulation process causing infertility. High hormone imbalance also leads to other problems like abnormal hair growth and acne.

Other types of disorders that can be associated with PCOD like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol abnormalities, endometrial cancer and the irregular period leading to obesity.
