Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a complex hormonal disorder named for the numerous cysts, which form in a woman’s ovary when the hormonal imbalance interrupts ovulation. PCOS symptoms include abnormal menstrual cycles, excessive body and/or facial hair growth, weight gain, baldness or thinning hair and adult acne. Related to diabetes and the bodies inability to respond to insulin properly, there is no specific drug treatment for PCOS. If left untreated, it can lead to life-threatening illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and uterine and endometrial cancers.
