What's PCOS? 

PCOS stands for polycystic ovarian syndrome. The name does speak of cysts but they are actually all small follicles. PCOS is a general condition with repercussions or causes in several organs. In general you can say that there is an increased reserve of ovocytes with hormonal disorders and possibly ovulation and metabolic disorders (eg disturbed processing of sugar by insulin resistance).

It is therefore more than a gynecological problem. People with PCOS may suffer from an irregular cycle (irregular or no ovulation), acne, excessive hair growth (hirsutism), obesity, etc.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has multiple etiologies including ovarian and adrenal hyperandrogenism, neuro-endocrine and hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction, and disorders of peripheral insulin resistance.

Subfertility is a very common symptom of PCOS, but it is also one of the most treatable!
