PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is also known as Stein-Leventhal Syndrome or Polycystic Ovary Disease (PCOD). PCOS is among the leading causes of infertility in women.
PCOS has been identified for 75 years and it's still unclear completely what causes it.
PCOS is not just a cosmetic problem and it affects far more than just reproduction. PCOS is among the leading causes of infertility in women. It affects an estimated 6-10% of all women and most don't even know they have it.
PCOS is not curable but it can be successfully treated by:
- changes in diet
- weight loss
