Problem of infertility due to life style becomes critical in females.

Karnal, 18 March (SRE): Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is increasing fast in females, specially young adolescent girls. The intensity of the disease can be gauged from the fact that every 7th woman, who can not conceive is suffering from this disease. If it not timely treated it can turn into diabetes or cancer of uterus membrane. The gynecologists from across the state apart from UP discussed ways to control the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, PCOS, so that the females and adolescent girls are made aware of the symptoms and treatment.
