Understanding Knowledge, Attitude, Practices towards Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS): A Review of Recent Literature

Rohith SM | Dr. P. Maheshwari


Abstract: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) stands as a prevalent endocrine disorder impacting millions of women worldwide, yet there persists substantial heterogeneity in knowledge, attitudes, and practices (KAP) concerning polycystic ovarian syndrome among healthcare professionals and the broader populace. This comprehensive review endeavours to amalgamate recent literature on knowledge attitude practices towards polycystic ovarian syndrome, discerning gaps in comprehension and identifying avenues for advancement. Through an examination of studies encompassing diverse demographic groups, this synthesis aims to underscore the critical significance of heightening awareness, augmenting education, and cultivating affirmative attitudes towards the management of polycystic ovarian syndrome. Despite the disorder's prevalence, disparities persist in understanding its etiology, symptomatology, and potential consequences. Moreover, societal attitudes and stigmas surrounding polycystic ovarian syndrome can exacerbate the emotional and psychological toll on affected individuals. Thus, this review underscores the imperative of holistic approaches to PCOS management, encompassing not only medical interventions but also addressing psychological and social dimensions. By elucidating the multifaceted landscape of knowledge attitude practices towards polycystic ovarian syndrome, this review advocates for concerted efforts to bridge knowledge gaps, challenge misconceptions, and enhance support systems for individuals grappling with this complex condition. Ultimately, such endeavours hold promise in fostering improved health outcomes and overall well-being for those affected by polycystic ovarian syndrome.
