Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is another name for “chronic oligoanovulation”—irregular or absent ovulation resulting in irregular or absent menstruation. PCOS may be associated with ovaries that have multiple cysts; hyperandrogenism (increased DHEA and/or testosterone); excessive facial or body hair (hirsuitism); acne; and weight gain.
PCOS can cause your eggs to develop incorrectly or to not get released during ovulation. If eggs don’t get released, you can’t get pregnant.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder which is very common among those with female sex organs in their reproductive age.
