In brief: Genetic + lifestyle

Polycystic ovarian syndrome or pcos is a condition that shows irregular periods, excessive androgens (male hormones) and metabolic disorders (type 2 or gestational diabetes, abnormal BP and lipids, Insulin resistance syndrome, etc).
There is a genetic component that cannot be changed. However pcos patients can make lifestyle change (weight loss, regular exercise) that will control effects of pcos.
