What are the Causes of PCOS?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS, is a hormonal disorder characterised by multiple cysts in the ovaries, affecting nearly 22% of women in their reproductive age. Here are some of the possible causes of PCOS.
Androgens are male hormones produced in small amounts, even in women. Elevated androgens cause issues with ovulation where the mature eggs are not released on time, leading to irregular menstruation, immature follicles, and cyst formations.
If you have a family history of PCOS, the chances of developing this condition also increase.
Studies have shown that people with long-term inflammation and obesity can cause excess androgens and PCOS.
Insulin is an essential hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin promotes glucose uptake by the cells. However, when the body’s cells turn resistant to insulin, blood glucose uptake cannot occur. Increased insulin in the body can cause excess androgen production causing ovulation issues and PCOS.
