How do you know if you have PCOS?

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions floating around about PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome) and EmpressBody is dedicated to helping women learn all they can about PCOS and offer holistic relief from it too. Did you know that 1 in 10 women in the US have PCOS? It is one of the most common hormonal issues in women, but not many people seem to know very much about it. EmpressBody has looked into what the main symptoms of PCOS are, and how EmpressBody can help!

The 3 main symptoms of PCOS are:

· Irregular periods – which means your period is late or comes at unexpected times, unfortunately this can have another effect; it means that your ovaries do not regularly release eggs (ovulation)

· Increased levels of "male" hormones in your body, which may cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair

· Polycystic ovaries – your ovaries become enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) that surround the eggs (but despite the name, you do not actually have cysts if you have PCOS)

If you have at least 2 of these features, you may be diagnosed with PCOS. These symptoms mainly manifest in your teens or early on in your 20s.

What are polycystic ovaries?

Polycystic ovaries contain a large number of harmless follicles (fancy word for fluid-filled sack) that are up to 8mm in size. The follicles/sacks are where the ovum develops. In PCOS, these sacks are often unable to release an egg, which means ovulation does not take place.

Other Symptoms of (PCOS) include:

· Irregular periods or no periods at all

· Difficulty getting pregnant as a result of irregular ovulation or no ovulation

· Weight gain

· Thinning hair and hair loss from the head

· Oily skin or acne

What causes polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)?

The exact cause of PCOS is unknown, but it often runs in families. It's related to abnormal hormone levels in the body, including high levels of insulin.
