PCOS has many issues: Polycystic ovary syndrome (pcos) is a metabolic disorder. Often women: ovulate infrequently, are overweight/obese, have difficulty getting pregnant, have acne/facial hair, Insulin resistance with higher risk of diabetes. First line treatment is hormonal birth control (pills-patch-ring). Treatment lowers risk of painful rupture and ovarian loss. Using metformin (diabetes drug) may help fertility.

PCOS!: Pcos is related to metabolic syndrome! women with pcos are frequently anovulatory have difficulty with conceiving. But is is important that other issues are not plaguing you such as cholesterol issues, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar.
