PCOS is a disorder related to Antastrav in women characterized by formation of single or multiple cysts in ovaries which in turn causes irregular menstrual cycle. Size of ovary increases and it secretes androgen and estrogen hormones in great amount. This condition leads to various problems associated with menstrual cycle, fertility, cardiac health and physical appearance. Hormonal imbalance and genetics play important role in this disorder while excessive consumption of contraceptive pills also contributes to this disease.
