Thanks for writing in.

PCOD is a short form of Polycystic Ovarian Disease.
This is a benign condition affecting many women in the reproductive age group.
There are many features of PCOD before confirming a diagnosis.

Ultrasound features are:
Enlarged ovaries (volume > 10 cc)
Multiple small peripherally arranged follicles in ovaries (necklace pattern)
Echogenic stroma.

Other clinical symptoms to be considered are
Weight gain
Increased body hair
Decreased or absence of periods without pregnancy or any other explainable reason.

Treatment of PCOD includes female hormone tablets.

Hope this helps.
