Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)- one amongst the commonest hormonal disorders in women between the age group of 18 years to 45 years. Amenorrhea, infertility, evidence of hyperandrogenism (HA), insulin resistance, dyslipidaemia, and amenorrhea are all possible symptoms of PCOS. Persistent anovulation over an extended period is the apparent underlying cause. Aim: The study's aim was to raise public awareness of early PCOS detection and management through the use of healthcare professionals. Methodology: To determine the impact of a structured training curriculum on female undergraduate students' comprehension of polycystic ovarian syndrome, a quasi- experimental two group pre and post-test design was utilised. The target population for the study was undergraduate female students. Data analysis was done using the study's aims and assumptions as the basis for the sample size of 60. Statistical Package EZR - Software version 2.4 was used to analyse the data. Result: The pre- test knowledge scores of the experimental group and the control group of female students were both 12.40 ± 5.19 and 11.77 ± 4.36, respectively. The experimental group's post-test knowledge scores were statistically significantly different from the control group's (p=0.00) mean scores in this study 23.53 ± 3.51 and the control group's being 14.53 ± 2.93. Conclusion: The results indicate that understanding PCOS is crucial for adolescent groups in order to comprehend disease conditions and receive appropriate treatment to avoid developing other life- threatening problems as well as future infertility.
