What causes the syndrome of polycystic ovaries? The vast majority of cases develop spontaneously. However, one of the main reasons for the appearance of pathology is considered a hereditary factor. Studies of recent years indicate that the excessive production of androgens by the ovaries is directly related to the level of insulin in the blood and develops precisely because of its excessively high concentration. The predisposing factor that contributes to the development of the syndrome is overweight, so the only effective way to prevent the disease to date are activities that help maintain a healthy weight of women.
What are the specific symptoms? Symptoms can occur in the body of mature women or, vice versa, very young women. The age does not make any sense as well as the specific environment. They can develop during the puberty period. Doctors always point that problems with the menstrual syndrome are important to consider to prevent serious hormonal changes. In the case of POS, the menstrual period may be delayed. Sometimes, it is simply gone, which is a huge loss for the entire female organism.
Girls can be overweight and have hair growth as a male type, for example, on the chest and face. They may also have a disorder of a menstrual cycle, and menstrual bleeding may be severe. Each woman’s symptoms may differ slightly. In some situations, only some of the signs may show up. In severer situations, female patients suffer from all signs combined together: hair growth speeds up, more hair appears in terms of its amount, hair covers unexpected zones like woman’s face and chest, absence or irregular menstrual bleeding, ongoing bleeding from the uterus, high blood pressure, pimples, obesity in the waist, thin hair and baldness on a man’s type, infertility.
