Polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, is a common condition in women. It is caused by hormonal disturbances resulting from insulin resistance i.e insulin fails to keep blood sugar in check. This leads to the growth of ovarian cysts which are benign masses on the ovaries. These ovaries start making more androgen (male hormone) which may cause irregular menses, acne, facial hair, body hair, dark skin, obesity etc.
Typically, women with PCOS are overweight and they struggle to lose weight.
