Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder in which a woman’s hormones are out of balance. Women who suffer from this disorder grow many small cysts on their ovaries causing an imbalance of hormones in the body. These imbalances have a large effect on a woman’s body, from fertility issues and irregular periods, to unwanted hair and obesity.
