PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) is the consolation of symptoms rather than a specific disease and the cause is not completely understood. In a normal menstrual cycle, the brain makes a hormone called GnRh (Gonadotropin-releasing hormone is responsible for the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) from the anterior pituitary) which is released into special circulation going to the Pituitary Gland than Pituitary Gland releases two hormones FSH and LH which travel to the blood stream to the ovary causing the ovary produce an egg. Then the egg will travel to the uterus and if fertilize will stay in the uterus, but if not fertilize it will be shed and women will be normal menstrual period. One of the cause could be in PCOS abnormal release GnRH, this disturbs to release LSH and LH. LH increase, LSH decrease. And response to this, ovary makes more male hormone testosterone, androgens, and ovulation is inhibited.
