Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS stands for polycystic ovarian syndrome.  It is a very common gynaecological condition.  The origin of the disorder shares similarity with that of diabetes.  It is charactersed by irregular cycles and infrequent ovulation in young women.  On examination with pelvic ultrasound, these women often have multiple small cysts on the ovaries.  In the long term, there is somewhat increased risk for diabetes.

Many people feel devastated by the diagnosis, but there are really only three problems to address and all these problems can be easily corrected.
