treats them like a single entity. These glands are viewed as a single system because they function
together in endocrinologists and physiologist. This axis has a primary role in the development as
well as regulation of different body systems which include the immune and reproductive
systems. Variations in this axis often results in the different gland glands to produce different
hormones. These hormonal secretionshave different effects to the body (Romeo, 232-240).
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the disorders occasioned by an irregular
fluctuation in this axis. POS is a disorder caused by an imbalance of these hormones and it
