What is PCOS?

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal condition which affects 8-13% of women of child bearing age. When you have PCOS, you are likely to have high androgen (hormone) levels, irregular periods, and polycystic ovaries.

PCOS can cause problems such as:
● periods less regular (more or less often)
● emotional problems (anxiety or depression)
● hair growth on face, stomach, back
● acne, or pimples
