Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or PCOS is a problem faced by women as a result of hormonal imbalance. It may cause unwanted changes in appearance, affect the period cycle and also make it difficult to get pregnant. If left untreated, it can lead to serious health complications, such as diabetes, thyroid or heart disease.
The cause of PCOS is not fully known, but genetics is regarded as the main factor. It initially starts with small cysts on ovaries, which are not essentially harmful but are the reason of imbalances in the hormone.
