10% of American women are affected by polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS, making this health condition more common than one may imagine. The cause of PCOS is not well understood and still a subject of debate.  Researchers believe that as many as half of all women who have polycystic ovarian syndrome don’t even know it, as women do not seek the care they need when their periods are irregular. Most women with PCOS do not ovulate on a regular basis. Therefore PCOS will increase a woman’s risk of infertility.  It is important to note that women with PCOS are more vulnerable to other health conditions. Here, we want to discuss a few key points that may help you obtain proper treatment sooner rather than later.
