  • Polycystic (pah-lee-SIS-tik) ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a health problem that can affect a woman's menstrual cycle, ability to have children, hormones, heart, blood vessels, and appearance. With PCOS, women typically have:

    * high levels of androgens (AN-druh-junz). These are sometimes called male hormones, although females also make them.
    * missed or irregular periods
    * many small cysts (sists) in their ovaries. Cysts are fluid-filled sacs.

  • My Dr thinks I have this too.... he has not done any test but has me on metformin. This is an antidiabetic medicine and is supposed to help with ovulation.
