Ovulatory Disorders

Ovulatory disorders are common in reproductive age women and constitute the most common cause of menstrual abnormalities. In addition to causing discomfort due to irregular bleeding, ovulatory disorders are also common causes of infertility.

Ovulatory disorders may result from problems in the ovary as well as abnormalities in the pituitary gland and hypothalamus in the brain. Another common cause of ovulatory dysfunction associated with hirsutism is polycystic ovary syndrome.
