Do you struggle with acne, excess hair growth, or weight? Do you have periods that are unpredictable, or even absent? Are you wanting to get pregnant, but having a hard time? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is worthwhile for you and your doctor to consider polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) as a potential cause to your hormone imbalance.
PCOS is a particular type of hormone imbalance that is common among women of reproductive age. High testosterone levels and blood sugar dysregulation often go hand in hand in causing the undesirable symptoms discussed above.
