WHAT IS POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME?
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work which can lead to fertility issues.
The three main features of PCOS are:
Irregular periods which means the ovaries don’t regularly release eggs (ovulation). This can affect a woman’s ability to get pregnant.
Excess androgen high levels of ‘male hormones’ in the body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair.
Polycystic ovaries the ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) which surround the eggs and can stop them from being released. It’s important to note that, despite the name, if you have PCOS you don’t actually have cysts.
