PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a common condition that affects how a woman’s ovaries work.


Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects millions of people in the UK, it is difficult to establish how many women have PCOS, though it is thought to be very common, affecting around one in every five women in the UK. The condition effects how a woman’s ovaries function. Cysts filled with fluids grow on the ovaries, often these cysts will not be a health issue though they can result in hormonal imbalances as the ovaries start to produce more male hormones than normal.

PCOS can be a very distressing condition to have as the condition can trigger excess hair growth, acne, weight gain, anxiety or depression, as well as heavy or irregular periods and sleep apnoea. Due to the increased level of male hormones the development and release of eggs can also be affected leading to fertility problems.
