What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal imbalance in which women of childbearing age produce a higher amount of the male hormone known as Androgen with little production of Progesterone hormones. This syndrome affects at least 1 in 10 women of childbearing age and it is characterized by irregular or absence of menstruation, hair loss, facial hair growth and the appearance of acne. PCOS can go on to cause other health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes. PCOS have been shown to be a major culprit in infertility in women, however, early detection and treatment increases your chances of getting pregnant.
