Not yet published
It is thought that one in every five women in the UK suffers from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Often symptoms go undiagnosed.
According to nhs.uk, common symptoms of PCOS include:
Irregular periods or no periods at all
Difficulty getting pregnant (because of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)
Excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks
Thinning hair and hair loss from the head
Oily skin or acne
You should see your GP if you have any of these symptoms and think you may have PCOS.
