You might have PCOS if you struggle with body hair, facial hair, and/or several menstruation abnormalities in women.
Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is a prevalent hormonal condition that primarily affects women during their reproductive years.
It is a complicated disorder that may present with a wide range of symptoms and may have an effect on a person’s general health.
The main characteristics of PCOS include:
1. Unreliable Menstrual Cycles: PCOS patients frequently have unreliable or infrequent menstrual cycles. Some women may experience severe or protracted bleeding when they are menstruating.
2. Ovulatory Dysfunction: PCOS can interfere with the regular ovulatory cycle, making it difficult or impossible to conceive. Ovulation, which is required for pregnancy, is the release of an egg from the ovaries.
3. High levels of androgens: Androgens, or male hormones, are also found in females but in much lower concentrations.
