PCOS: Pcos is polycystic ovarian syndrome, a complex condition usually associated with irregular menstrual cycles and unwanted symptoms of excess male hormone (like acne and/or male-type hair growth). Since it's associated with various medical problems, it's usually in your best interest to see a board certified reproductive endocrinologist. I'm an expert in this. www.reproendo.com.
