What is PCOS ?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most prevalent hormonal disorders among women of reproductive age causing irregular menstrual cycles, excessive body or facial hair, miscarriage and infertility.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders, affecting a reported 10 percent of women globally. There are various symptoms, which may be: cosmetic, such as acne, facial hair and pigmentation; gynaecological such as irregular periods, infertility and recurrent pregnancy loss; or endocrinological such as obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes. PCOS is not a disease but a syndrome of multiple symptoms and signs and each woman might have a different combination of the symptoms.
The symptoms usually become apparent in late teens or early twenties and each symptom can vary from mild to severe. In many women, the only symptoms are menstrual problems or a failure to conceive. However, common symptoms include:
- Irregular periods or a complete lack of periods (amenorrhea)
- Difficulty getting pregnant (because of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)
- Recurrent miscarriage
- Excessive hair growth (hirsutism)—usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks
- Weight problems—being overweight, rapid weight gain, difficulty losing weight
- Thinning hair and hair loss from the head
- Oily skin or acne
- Depression and mood changes
- Multiple, small cysts on the ovaries
Most women with PCOS grow many small cysts on their ovaries—hence polycystic ovary syndrome. These cysts are not harmful but do cause hormone imbalances, which in turn cause the symptoms listed.
