Abstract: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a hyper androgenic condition in a female with persistent oligo-anovulation. Between the age of 18 and 44, almost 5% to 10% of females are impacted by this condition. The most prevalent issue in the world is infertility, which is the inability to conceive after a continuous one-year period of exposure to regular, unprotected, typical coitus. Three-quarters to forty percent of all human infertility are female-originated. Therefore, there is a greater demand for PCOS research and awareness. To decrease current treatments' cost, length, and side effects, integrative approaches must be developed based on the aforementioned variables. These approaches can be used to treat the polycystic ovarian syndrome, its consequences, and symptoms like obesity, irregular menstrual cycles, excessive hair growth, etc. This review consolidates current problems, treatment modalities associated with PCOS, and how integrative approaches can handle this syndrome in females.
