A member asked:

Where do polycystic ovaries on ultrasound come from if you ovulate every month and everything else is normal hormones etc including progesterone (blood tests done multiple times) to confirm this ( & other signs ewcm)?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

Often follicles form in the ovaries which do not rupture to release mature eggs, leaving them intact. Ultrasound will detect these, but this is not identical to the disease syndrome "PCOS", which is consistent with non-ovulatory cycles.
