Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

One common female fertility problem is polycystic ovary syndrome known as PCOS. This can affect the way a woman’s ovaries work, and it is thought to affect around one in five women in the UK. Some will have symptoms which suggest they may have PCOS, such as irregular or absent periods and skin problems such as acne and unwanted hair growth. Symptoms can vary from person to person.  Being overweight is a common association and tends to make things harder to treat.
