Polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS is a complication, which occurs when a woman’s sex hormone levels are out of balance. It often causes the growth of ovarian cysts (benign masses on the ovaries). This can bring about alterations in a woman’s menstrual cycle, affect her fertility, cause cardiac issues and affect her physical appearance as well. The major factors behind the disease include hormonal imbalances and genetic factors. The symptoms include decrease in breast size, husky voice, thinning of hair and excessive hair growth on the face, stomach, chest and other areas.
