It is also known as Stein Levinthal Syndrome. It is a very common problem occurring in 11-18% of females in the childbearing age group. It is one of the common causes of female infertility. The exact etiology of this disease is not very clear . It can be due to multiple factors like increased androgens (male hormones), insulin resistance, disturbance in hypothalamo-pituitary ovarian axis and genetic factors. The environmental factors like consumption of junk food and lack of healthy lifestyle can also attribute to this condition.
