Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, or PCOS, is a health condition affecting one in ten women of childbearing age. Women who have PCOS suffer from metabolic issues and hormonal imbalances. These issues may affect appearance and overall health, cause irregular or prolonged menstrual periods, or elevated androgen (male hormone) levels in women.
Women with PCOS also have several small fluid collections called follicles in their ovaries, which do not release an egg regularly. The precise cause of PCOS remains unknown. However, early diagnosis, treatment and weight loss can prevent long-term health complications like heart disease and diabetes.
PCOS symptoms usually develop around the time of the first menstrual period during puberty. The symptoms are different, but diagnosis is possible if you experience at least two of these signs.
A prolonged or irregular menstrual cycle is the most common PCOS sign. For example, someone with PCOS may have less than nine periods in one year, abnormally heavy periods, or more than 35 days between periods.
The ovaries may be bigger, with follicles surrounding the eggs. The enlargement may cause the ovaries not to function properly.
Increased levels of the male hormone, androgen may cause physical signs such as male-pattern baldness, periodic severe acne, and excess facial and body hair or hirsutism.
The symptoms and signs of PCOS are usually more several for obese people.
If you are concerned about your menstrual periods, experience infertility, or show signs of excess androgens like worsening acne, hirsutism and male-pattern baldness, ensure you schedule an appointment with us.
No specific cause of PCOS is known, but the following play a role in developing this condition.
