Everything you need to know about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects women of all age groups.

PCOS causes hormone imbalance, resulting in health conditions such as irregular menstrual cycle.

Its three main features include cysts in the ovaries, high levels of male hormones and irregular periods.

There are no fixed causes, but PCOS can happen due to genes, insulin resistance or inflammation.

It can make it harder for women to get pregnant and increase the risk of complications.

PCOS in women can be diagnosed by checking their androgen levels and menstrual cycles.

PCOS treatment starts with healthy lifestyle changes in your everyday routine.

Talk to your doctor if you continue to experience distressing symptoms.
