Polycystic Ovary Syndrome – PCOS


PCOS is a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. Somewhere around 15% of women in the Western world have PCOS – and this number is increasing. Women with PCOS may have enlarged ovaries that contain small cysts on the ovaries located in each ovary as seen during an ultrasound exam. It is normally diagnosed when a woman stops menstruating, or when she tries to conceive a baby but fails. Most women with PCOS suffer from some, but not all, of the symptoms:

  • Unpredictable ovulation

  • Irregular or absent menstruation

  • Infertility

  • Acne, which typically appears around the mouth, chin, and jawline

  • Male pattern hair growth

  • Male pattern hair loss

  • Weight gain and increased difficulty in losing weight

  • Low libido

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Mood swings or disruptions in regular mood

PCOS is caused by many reasons and what precisely is going on in each woman’s body is different. Therefore, it’s important to test testosterone, DHEA, estrogen, progesterone, LH and FSH at the very least when trying to figure out precisely what’s going on with your PCOS. A liver panel, fasting glucose levels, thyroid tests, micronutrient levels, and adrenal hormone such as cortisol are all important for background endocrine understanding, too.
