Do You Have Chin Whiskers? Talk To Your Doctor Immediately

Many women in their reproductive years suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome, also known as PCOS, and that can lead to cysts forming directly on the ovaries. As shared by Remedy Daily, here are some signs and symptoms to watch out for.

The exact cause of PCOS is unclear, but risk factors include excess insulin, heredity, and low-grade inflammation. Essentially, it’s the result of a hormone imbalance, and it can leave sufferers prone to ovarian cysts. Each individual case is different of course, but there are several common warning signs that you can be on the lookout for.

Signs include irregular menstrual cycles, moodiness and excess facial or body hair, and acne. Additionally, insulin-level issues that result in excess insulin in the body can hamper the ovaries ability to function properly. Obese women may notice a worsening of symptoms as time moves along.

Treatment will vary by patient, but lifestyle changes and prescription of birth control pills to regulate cycles are common courses of action.
