1 Early exposure of androgens either due to environmental or genetic factors in young females can cause polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) like symptoms, which exhibits an increase in the number of growing preantral and antral follicles and an arrest of growth of follicle in midantral follicle stage, leading to antrum expansion, increased granulosa cell degeneration and, development of cystic follicles with thin granulosa cell walls.
