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.
