What is PCOS?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects 5%-10% of women in North America and is the leading cause of infertility. Women with PCOS have high levels of male hormones (androgens), which play a role in blocking the release of the egg from the follicle. As a result, the ovaries fill with cysts or create immature follicles that are unable to generate eggs. Common Symptoms include:
- Excessive hair growth on the face, nipple area and lower abdomen
- Irregular or infrequent periods
- Abnormal levels of insulin as well as insulin resistance
- Late or absent ovulation
- High Prolactin levels
- Excessive weight gain
- Acne and/or oily skin
- Polycystic ovaries
- Skin tags
