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.
