Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small collection of fluid called follicles, located in each ovary. They develop more than normal every month. Most of which, enlarge and ripen but do not release an egg.
İnfrequent menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne and obesity can occur in women with PCOS. The exact cause is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment, along with weight loss may reduce the risk of long term complications such as, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

Symptoms

Contact your doctor as soon as you have concerns about your menstrual periods, if you’re experiencing infertility or if you have signs of androgen excess such as acne and male-pattern hair growth.
