Polycystic Ovaries (PCOS) and Symtoms
PCOS is the most common hormonal disturbance among premenopausal women. It is the leading cause of infertility due to lack of ovulation. Although PCOS is treatable, it cannot currently be totally cured.
Polycystic Ovaries (PCO) affects approx 2 in 10 women during their lives. Approximately three quarters of these women will experience effects of PCOS.
PCOS Symptoms can include:
- Unwanted facial and or body hair (hirsutism)
- Being overweight, rapid weight gain; difficulty in losing weight
- Oily skin, acne
- Irregular periods or lack of periods
- Irregular ovulation or no ovulation
- Reduced fertility; difficulty in becoming pregnant
- Recurrent miscarriages
The condition has long-term health implications as women with PCOS may have an increased risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.
PCOS affects women in different ways so you may not have all the symptoms. Some women may only have a couple of mild symptoms, whilst others may exhibit a wider range of symptoms more severely. No woman is the same.
Verity is the official support group and charity, which can offer further help and advise.
A 10% discount is available for patients with proven PCOS.
