Did you know some women do not have polycystic cysts yet suffer from one or more PCOS symptoms? The latter are huge in range and can include excess facial and body hair , skin conditions, menstrual irregularity and infertility, thyroid problems and chronic fatigue?
Conversely, many women have cysts on their ovaries but don’t suffer from the symptoms of PCOS. As many as 25% of the female population are thought to have polycystic ovaries, though only around half of them are diagnosed with PCOS symptoms.
This confusing state of affairs is why it’s so important to learn as much as you can about PCOS and polycystic ovaries, relate that information to the way you feel, personally, and then ask your doctor for advice if you think you may be suffering from either condition.
Fortunately, PCOS and polycystic ovaries are reversible.
