Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder characterised by high levels of the male hormone known as androgens. This affects the ovaries ability to release eggs regularly. It is important to have PCOS diagnosed by a GP or hospital physician who can adequately test your hormone levels and arrange for an ultrasound of the ovaries.

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Most commonly, PCOS is identified by an irregularity or absence of a period, hirsutism (male-patterned hair growth) or high levels of insulin (insulin resistance). It is also said to be hereditary and can be passed down amongst close female relatives. 

PCOS can affect a woman's body due to the symptoms that can accompany it. Only a medical professional can determine if you have PCOS, however, some common symptoms of PCOS can include all or some of the following:

  • Weight gain
  • Infertility or difficulty conceiving 
  • Excessive hair growth (typically on the face, chest, or abdomen)
  • Oily skin
  • Acne
  • Irregular or no periods
  • Thinning of the hair on the head

PCOS can also lead to the development of other serious health risks including type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol.
