What is PCOS???
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that occurs when an imbalance of hormone levels in a woman’s body causes cysts (say: “sists”) to form in the ovaries. The cysts are like tiny, fluid-filled balloons.
Usually, women who have PCOS have irregular, infrequent or no menstrual periods. They may also have trouble getting pregnant. Some women who have PCOS do not experience any symptoms
Treatments vary on the your symptoms. Seek medical care if you display at least two of these following signs.
What causes PCOS??
Doctors do not know exactly what causes PCOS. If you have PCOS, you have a hormone imbalance. Your ovaries make too much of one type of hormone (called androgens). You may also have too much insulin, which regulates your blood sugar levels. These hormone problems cause the symptoms of PCOS.
