Introduction: Polycystic ovarian disease (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. PCOD produces symptoms in approximately 5% to 10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 years old). It is thought to be one of the leading causes of female subfertility.
Objectives: To establish correlation among LH, FSH, fasting blood sugar and lipid profile among the women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), in order to evaluate their diagnostic and prognostic significance.
Materials and Methods: This study includes total 500 female participants of age Group between 18-40 year of age. They were divided in to two groups. Group 1(n=300) includes women having PCOD (Cases Group) and Group 2(n=200) is controls Group. Fasting Blood samples were obtained from all participants to measure Blood sugar, Lipid Profile FSH and LH.
Results: The Mean level of Fasting Blood sugar, Serum cholesterol, Serum Triglyceride, Serum FSH and Serum LH is found to be higher in Cases group as compared to controls group and difference among them found to be statistically significant.
Conclusion: PCOD is a very complicated endocrine disorder. Blood tests to measure hormone levels, an ultrasound to look at your reproductive organs and thorough personal and family histories should be completed before a PCOD diagnosis is confirmed. Assessing hormone levels serves two major purposes. First of all, it helps to rule out any other problems that might be causing the symptoms. Secondly, together with an ultrasound and personal and family histories, it helps gynecologist to diagnose the cases of PCOD.

Keywords: FSH, LH, Lipid Profile, PCOD.
