Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also called hyperandrogenic anovulation (HA), or Stein-Leventhal syndrome, is one of the most common endocrine disorders among females. PCOS has a diverse range of causes that are not entirely understood, but there is evidence that it is largely a genetic disease. Others say it is generally a metabolic dysfunction, since it is reversible. Even though considered as a gynecological problem, PCOS is comprised of 28 clinical symptoms.

Even though the name suggest that the ovaries are the cornerstone of disease pathology, cysts are the 'result' , not the cause of the disease. Symptoms of PCOS will persist even if both ovaries are removed, the disease can appear even if cysts are absent. Since it's first description by Stein and Leventhal in 1935, the criteria of diagnosis, symptoms, and causative factors are subject to debate. Gynecologists often see it as a gynaecological problem, with ovary as the primary organ affected. However, recent insights shows a multisystem disorder, with the primary problems lies in hormonal regulation in hypothalamus, with involvement of many organs. The name PCOD is used when there is an ultrasonographic evidence. The term PCOS is used since there is a wide spectrum of symptoms possible, and cysts in the ovaries are seen only in 15% of people. Treatments like wedge resection or laparoscopic drilling of ovaries are still performed around the world, based on this false 'ovary- focused' belief.

PCOS produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age (approximately 12 to 45 years old). It is thought to be one of the leading causes of female subfertility and the most frequent endocrine problem in women of reproductive age. Finding that the ovaries appear polycystic on ultrasound is common, but it is not an absolute requirement in all definitions of the disorder.

The most common immediate symptoms are anovulation, excess androgenic hormones, and insulin resistance. Anovulation results in irregular menstruation, amenorrhea, and ovulation-related infertility. Hormone imbalance generally causes acne and hirsutism. Insulin resistance is associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol levels. The symptoms and severity of the syndrome vary greatly among affected women.
