PCOS is a hormone problem that affects females during their childbearing years (ages 15 to 44). Your reproductive hormones are out of control while you have PCOS. This can lead to issues with your ovaries, such as not having or not getting your period on time. Hormones are produced by the body to support various functions. Some have an impact on your menstrual cycle and are related to your ability to have a child.
The hormones that play a key role in PCOS includes:
Androgens. They’re commonly thought to be male hormones, but women also have them at lower level. PCOS women tend to have higher levels of Androgens.
Insulin: The blood sugar is regulated by this hormone. Your body might not respond to insulin the way it should if you have PCOS.
Progesterone: If you have PCOS, There might not be enough of this hormone in your body. You could skip your cycles for a long time or have trouble predicting when they’ll arrive.
