 •Genetic predisposition.

 •Insulin resistance or hyperinsulinism (high blood levels of insulin).

 •Obesity.

•Hyperandrogenism (excessive production of male hormones).

•Abnormality of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (organ/hormonal disorder). •Environmental chemical pollution (hormonal disruptors)

•Food adulterantion (excitatory amino acids, for example) •Chronic inflammation.

Symptoms

  • Multiple ovarian cysts

  • Excessive body or facial hair (hirsutism)
  • Insulin resistance and possibly diabetes
  • Thinning of scalp hair
  • Velvety, hyperpigmented skin folds (acanthosis nigricans)
  • High blood pressure
  • Polycystic ovaries that are 2-5 times larger than healthy ovaries.
  • Multiple hormone imbalances, commonly including:
    • Androgens (testosterone)
    • Cortisol
    • Estrogens
    • FSH (follicle stimulating hormone)
    • Insulin.
    • LH (luteinizing hormone)
    • progesterone
    • Prolactin.
    • Thyroid hormones.
  • Impaired lung function.
  • Sleep apnea.
  • Fatty liver degeneration (NAFLD).
  • Depression
  • I have it too.. Its kind of hard to deal with.. but i seem to manage ok.. You can also have high testorone levels, which makes hair grow, I have chin hair, and its worse now that i am pregnant with a son.

    i had infertility. I lost two children in 3 months and it took me nearly 2 whole years to concieve and carry to term. It is hereditary. My mom, my sister and I have it and my dd and anyother dds i may have will probably have it too. Skin tags anywhere are also a sign. Whatever you do, do not take someone saying no thats not what you have or no we dont have tests for that... I did that and probably wouldnt have had such a hard time getting pregnant if i would have stuck to my guns. Birth control is also not the only thing that can fix it. Metformin can to. ( i was told by a dr who thought I was too young for a child that that was my only choice... I realize now it wasnt there darn decision to make.)

    see i was on BC for 5 years and as soon as i got off 2 years ago all of this started and there is no way i am going back on BC. the doc keep telling me to get back on BC to straighten out my period but i told her that i am not getting back on BC, because i fear that is what got me in the position i am in now. my mama was never diagnosed with anything but i do see a lot of the signs you mentioned in her.
