In brief: PCOS
Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common female endocrine disorder, affecting 5-10% of women.
It affects multiple organ systems and not just the ovaries. Most women with pcos have enlarged ovaries with multiple cysts, hence the name. There are several support groups with useful info on them: pcosupport.Org, pcoschallenge.Com, and pcosfoundation.Org may be able to answer your questions.
