Polycystic Ovaries - PCOS

Polycystic ovarian disease is a common condition affecting an estimated 20-25% of women and most don't even know they have it. PCOS can cause irregular or absent periods, unwelcome facial and body hair, adult acne, weight problems, and infertility.

Not all women have every symptom and PCOS can often be diagnosed with a pelvic ultrasound scan and hormonal blood tests.

PCOS is one of the main causes of infertility in women and can be treated by lifestyle changes with diet and exercise. Sometimes medication is required.
