It can cause irregular periods or no periods at all, difficulty getting pregnant as a result of irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate, excessive hair growth (hirsutism) – usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks, weight gain, thinning hair and hair loss from the head, oily skin or acne.

Causes of PCOS

The true cause of PCOS is still unknown but there are some possible causes that doctors have found.

  • Excess insulin

Excess insulin might increase androgen production, causing difficulty with ovulation.

  • Low-grade inflammation

Women with PCOS have a type of low-grade inflammation that stimulates polycystic ovaries to produce androgens, which can lead to heart and blood vessel problems.

  • Heredity

Research shows that certain genes might be linked to PCOS.

  • Excess androgen

The ovaries produce abnormally high levels of androgen, resulting in hirsutism and acne.
