3 doctors agree

In brief: UNRELATED

Lions, tigers, & bears--oh my! --these 3 subjects seem unrelated but here it goes: pcos (polycystic ovary) is due to overweight causing no periods (anovulation) and cyst formation.
Birth control pills (ocp's) can help regulate periods and ovarian cysts but weight loss is essential. Uti's are caused by various causes but here's a trick: try urinating just after intercourse---may prevent them!
