PCOS: Polycystic ovarian syndrome involves irregular production of pituitary stimulation of the ovaries via elevation of average levels of lutienizing hormone, with resulting failure to stimulate release of eggs and production of progesterone , thus suspending the normal mechanism for menstruation. "Bloating" may come from higher estrogen levels, not from normal ovulatory mechanisms.
