In brief: Not a cause of pain

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos) affects about 8-10% of women, and may cause irregular periods, fertility issues, or health problems like diabetes.
It is not a cause of pelvic pain. Pain can be due to endometriosis, fibroids, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, scar tissue, & other causes (the 'cysts' in pcos are tiny follicles and are not painful). See your ob/gyn or a reproductive endo. Specialist.
