Polycystic ovary syndrome is one of the most common gynecological endocrine diseases in women. This article mainly discusses the etiology and pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome from the two aspects of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, and focuses on the mechanism of action of Guishen Pill. The clinical efficacy of symptoms. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine disease that mostly occurs in women during adolescence and reproductive age. Patients are characterized by persistent anovulation and ovarian polycystic changes. The clinical manifestations include irregular menstruation, infertility, hirsutism, and acne, obesity, acanthosis nigricans [1]. Traditional Chinese medicine does not have this disease name. According to its clinical manifestations and characteristics, it belongs to "infertility", "oligomenorrhea" and "amenorrhea" [2]. While PCOS may also be associated with a variety of complications, including insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and psychiatric disorders, the cause remains unclear. There is relevant evidence that polycystic ovary syndrome and genetic factors, intrauterine factors and environmental factors, as well as epigenetic mechanisms [3].
