Hormones, infertility, hormonal imbalance, PCOS, BMI, menstrual cycle


Women's health is greatly influenced by hormones. Women's hormonal imbalances can be brought on by a variety of factors, including stress, tension, rapid weight gain, etc. The understanding of the origins and diagnosis of female infertility has been viewed as being highly dependent on hormonal abnormalities. A specially designed data sheet was used for the collection and analysis of data for 510 infertile females. The present study aims to investigate the relationship between the age of infertile female with hormonal imbalance and ovulation disorder (PCOS) in association with Body mass index (BMI) and menstrual cycle leads to female infertility in the study area Ramanathapuram District.
