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.
