When it comes to PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) there is much more research needed in this area. No two women have the same set of symptoms. Any medical diagnosis that is labelled a “syndrome” is harder to treat or repair because IT IS NOT THE DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASE OR ILLNESS. It is a collection of symptoms that have then been titled a ‘syndrome’. In general, PCOS is a condition in which a woman’s ovaries, and in some cases the adrenal glands produce more androgens than normal.
PCOS affects 6-10% of premenopausal women beginning between puberty and early 20’s.
