Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

What is PCOS? 

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), also known as polycystic ovarian syndrome, is a common health problem caused by an imbalance of reproductive hormones. The hormonal imbalance creates problems in the ovaries.  With PCOS, the egg released in the ovaries may not develop as it should or it may not be released during ovulation as it should be.


What are the symptoms of PCOS? 


High levels of sex hormones called androgens are a defining sign of polycystic ovary syndrome. Androgens are male hormones crucial for sexual and reproductive functions. They are also responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics in men such as facial hair, body hair growth and voice change. Women with PCOS have high levels of androgens which causes excessive growth of facial or body hair. The medical term for this form of abnormal hair growth is hirsutism. Hirsutism can be seen as coarse, dark hair that may appear on the face, chest, abdomen, back, upper arms, or upper legs.
