Polycystic ovaries are a condition where ovaries contain excess primordial follicles. Despite the name Polycystic it does not contain any cyst and contains only follicles. The follicles are naturally present in the ovaries and they are small fluid filled sacs containing ovum or eggs. Normally during reproductive years each ovary contain 5-12 follicles but when there are 12-15 follicles in an ovary the ovary is called Polycystic.
When the presence of follicles is severe say more than 50 follicles then the condition is called as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) which is different from Polycystic Ovaries and causes infertility, increased facial hair and disturbed hormonal balance.
