Ovarian disorders refer to a group of conditions that affect the ovaries’ structure or function. These disorders can impact women at various stages of life, from adolescence to menopause. Common ovarian disorders include Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer, and ovarian hormone production disorders. Each of these conditions has unique characteristics, symptoms, and treatments.
