Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD) is a condition in which ovaries release immature or partially-matured eggs during a standard menstrual cycle. The ovaries swell as these eggs evolve into liquid-filled sacs called cysts. Swelling of the ovaries interrupts their usual function and triggers them to produce a large number of male hormones, testosterone.
While there are no known triggers, some of the factors that can contribute to PCOD are:
Most cases occur due to genetics, and severe PCOD may result in anovulation, a condition where the ovaries stop producing eggs.
Fortunately, a PCOD test can help you detect the condition early and manage your lifestyle. Apollo 24|7 offers a women's hormone check – a basic test to check for the most causes of PCOD by testing for hormones that contribute to the disorder. Here are the standard tests offered in the PCOD profile test.
With a comprehensive PCOD test, doctors can gauge the condition early. Here are some symptoms that may indicate the presence of PCOD.
While the condition has no known cure, a PCOD profile test can help doctors suggest suitable treatments. For instance, patients will be advised to monitor their diet and exercise regularly to manage the condition better.
