[3] Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormone. It is a health problem that affects 1 in 10 women of childbearing age. According to PCOS awareness association, polycystic ovarian syndrome occurs in around 10, 000, 000 people worldwide [4]. PCOS is a disorder of internal abnormal conditions of ovaries. 8-15 % of women with procreative age square measure largely affected. PCOS is mainly caused by Genetic imbalances and classified lifestyle changes [5]. There is an emerging need for the diagnosis and early treatment of this disorder as it may lead to infertility and ovarian cancer to the women suffering from PCOS and who has remained undiagnosed. Mainly, it can be treated at the hormonal level by normalizing the elevated hormones which will reduce the signs and symptoms associated and thereby gradually decreasing the severity of the disorder.
