WHAT IS PCOS?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS, also known as Polycystic Ovarian Disease, is a medical condition where enlarged cysts are located on the outer edge of each ovary. Women with PCOS usually have high levels of male hormones (androgens); weight issues and irregular or no menstrual cycle.
An estimated 10 per cent of women of childbearing age have this condition. PCOS patients have been found to be more at risk of diabetes and miscarriages. Coping with it can be stressful and women can experience depression and mood swings.
