What is PCOS?

PCOS is the abbreviation of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. This usually affects women and how their ovaries function. When women suffer with this there are three main features of the condition which includes cysts that may develop in the ovaries, ovaries not regular in releasing eggs and the body having a high level of male hormones called androgens. Your GP will be able to make a diagnosis of PCOS if you are suffering with two or more of these symptoms. All women have androgens, but it is fluctuating levels that cause the problems for women.

Whilst the exact cause of PCOS is unknown, it is mainly associated with the abnormal hormone levels in the body it is also hereditary. It is also important for you to check if any close female relatives have the same problem.
