Background: Polycystic ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. PCOD produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old). It is thought to be one of the leading causes of female subfertility. Objectives: The objective of the study is to establish correlation among insulin, testosterone, estrogen & progesterone hormones, lipid profile among the women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), in order to evaluate their diagnostic and prognostic significance Methodology: This study includes total 500 female participants of age Group between 18-40 year of age. They were divided in to two group. Group 1(n=300) includes women having PCOD and Group 2(n=200) is control Group. Fasting Blood samples were obtained from all participants to measure Blood sugar, Lipid Profile insulin, HOMA-IR, Testosterone, FSH,LH and Prolactin. Result: The Mean level of FastingBlood sugar, S.cholesterol, S.triglyceride S.insulin, S.testosterone, S.FSH, S.LH, S.prolactin and HOMA-IR is found to be higher in PCOD group as compared to control group and difference among them found to be statically significant. Conclusion: From our study I would like to conclude that as PCOS is a very complicated endocrine disorder. Blood tests to measure hormone levels, an ultrasound to look at your reproductive organs and thorough personal and family histories should be completed before a PCOS diagnosis is confirmed. Depending on your symptoms, your physician will determine exactly which tests are necessary. Assessing hormone levels serves two major purposes. First of all, it helps to rule out any other problems that might be causing the symptoms. Secondly, together with an ultrasound and personal and family histories, it helps your doctor confirm that you do have PCOS.
