Polycystic Ovaries Problem

Polycystic Ovaries Problem

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder that can cause irregular periods, weight gain, acne, hair loss or growth, infertility, and cysts on the ovaries.

However, not all women have all symptoms. Most women with polycystic ovary syndrome have insulin resistance, which requires the body to produce more insulin to metabolize food. The high insulin causes the ovaries to produce excess testosterone and weight gain can result. Weight gain and excess testosterone can negatively affect blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and may lead to diabetes.

How Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Diagnosed?

Polycystic ovary syndrome is diagnosed by your medical history, physical examination, blood tests, and transvaginal ultrasound.

How Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Treated?
