Polycystic ovaries: Polycystic ovarian syndrome usually is diagnosed by pelvic ultrasound, with a history of missed periods, skin eruptions, and some weight gain. Ask your physician about oral contraceptives, which will stop ovarian cyst production, preserve fertility, and prevent long term exposure to constant estrogen production, which can cause later problems.
