Description 

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder that affects as many as 5–10% of women. PCOS has three key features: 1) high levels of hormones called androgens; 2) irregular menstrual periods or lack of periods; and (3) the presence of growths called cysts on the ovaries. Many women with PCOS have other signs and symptoms as well.

The cause of PCOS is not known, but it may be at least partly genetic (passed down through a person's genes). With proper diagnosis, the symptoms of PCOS can be treated successfully. Long-term treatment may be needed to prevent the health risks associated with the disease.

  • signs and symptoms
