Hi,

In PCOD, there is failure of ovulation,so the mature follicles do not rupture. They collect on ovary to increase bulkiness of ovary. Because of hormonal imbalance caused due to PCOD, the uterus and its muscle get increased in size also.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
