Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones. This hormone imbalance causes them to skip menstrual periods and makes it harder for them to get pregnant.
Signs and symptoms
Signs and symptoms of PCOS vary.
- Irregular periods. Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles are the most common sign of PCOS.
- Difficulty getting pregnant (because of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)
- Excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks
- Weight gain
- Thinning hair and hair loss from the head
- Oily skin or acne
- Excess androgen. Elevated levels of male hormone
Polycystic ovaries might be enlarged and contain follicles.
