Hi Sameena, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.

PCOD is most common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age, where the Ovaries become enlarged and contain numerous small cysts located along the outer edge which will have a polycystic appearance.

The cause for this is unknown, and is known to cause Hormonal Imbalance, Infertility, Difficulty getting pregnant, weight gain, insulin resistance and irregular periods, excess hair growth.

The treatment involves hormonal therapy and surgery in rare cases.

You should bring in some lifestyle changes:

1.) Avoid high calorie foods and saturated fats
2.) eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables
3.) exercise for an hour daily and maintain a healthy weight
4.) avoid stress, practice relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation

Wish you Good Health.

Take Care.
