PCOS poses a variety of problems to those who are affected by it. For some it causes an inability to conceive, for others it leads to some other complications.
PCOS is asymptomatic in many cases and may be detected when investigating something else. Around 6 million American women suffer from this syndrome.
Symptoms of PCOS are varied, but all suggest an underlying hormonal imbalance.
It may cause acne due to high levels of testosterone which increases the amount of oil in the skin.

It causes irregular menses and weight gain. This weight gain in turn exacerbates PCOS.
Diagnosis is usually difficult due to the wide range of symptoms.
Treatment differs from person to person, but has to be holistic in nature.
Loosing weight helps in faster recovery.
