A hormononal imbalance related condition characterised by cysts that grow on a women’s ovaries, affecting how they work. Common symptoms include irregular periods, high levels of male hormones in the body, which can contribute to excess facial or body hair, as well as polycystic ovaries, which become enlarged as they contain fluid filled sacs that surround the eggs. It can affect a women’s fertility as sometimes these sacs aren’t able to release an egg, which means that ovulation doesn't take place.
