About the Cause:
PCOS affects about 7 million women in the US. That's more than the number of people diagnosed with breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis (MS), and lupus combined. Women with PCOS may be unaware that the changes in their appearance are due to a serious condition that can lead to Diabetes, heart disease and cervical, ovarian, uterine and breast cancer.

- Weight gain. About half of women with PCOS will have weight gain and obesity that is difficult to manage.
- Fatigue. Many women with PCOS report increased fatigue and low energy. Related issues such as poor sleep may contribute to the feeling of fatigue.
- Unwanted hair growth (also known as hirsutism). Areas affected by excess hair growth may include the face, arms, back, chest, thumbs, toes, and abdomen. Hirsutism related to PCOS is due to hormonal changes in androgens.
- Thinning hair on the head. Hair loss related to PCOS may increase in middle age.
- Infertility. PCOS is a leading cause of female infertility. However, not every woman with PCOS is the same. Although some women may need the assistance of fertility treatments, others are able to conceive naturally.
- Acne. Hormonal changes related to androgens can lead to acne problems. Other skin changes such as the development of skin tags and darkened patches of skin are also related to PCOS.
- Mood changes. Having PCOS can increase the likelihood of mood swings, depression, and anxiety.

The exact cause is unknown, but it is considered a hormonal problem. Genetics and environmental factors are believed to be involved in the development of PCOS.
