What Is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?: Cause And Symptoms

Polycystic ovary is an endocrine (hormonal) disorder characterized by menstrual irregularities (particularly oligomenorrhea), excessive body hair growth ( hirsutism ), and android obesity , all symptoms related to elevated blood levels of male hormones ( androgens ). The hormonal alterations typical of this condition determine an incomplete development of Graff’s follicles, which heal leaving the characteristic cysts; ovarian polycystosis is also the leading cause of female sterility .

The symptoms of polycystic ovary are numerous and their association and intensity differ considerably from one patient to another. We recall, among these: oligomenorrhea, amenorrhea, infertility, hirsutism, alopecia , receding hairline, acne, seborrhea , oily skin , obesity, lowering of the voice. Women affected by ovarian polycystosis are more prone to hypertension , hyperlipidemia , elevated levels of C-reactive protein , fatty liver , insulin resistance , metabolic syndrome , uterine cancer, type II diabetes and sleep apnea
