The 3 Causes of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Dr. Berg talks about PCOS, polycystic ovarian syndrome and what it is and what it isn’t. The body is making excess androgens and there is 3 common reasons for this.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) affects between 5 per cent and 10 per cent of women in their reproductive years. It is considered one of the leading causes of subfertility in females. Subfertility describes a situation where a person less fertile than normal but still capable of reproducing.

To confirm a diagnosis of PCOS, two of three major symptoms must be present: menstrual abnormality, excess androgen and polycystic ovaries. Some PCOS patients’ ovaries appear normal, and other women with cysts may not have PCOS.
