What are the symptoms of PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)?

PCOS affects women in different ways. Kate Davies, Fertility Nurse Consultant, describes the typical PCOS symptoms, which include cysts on the ovaries, weight problems, irregular or absent periods, acne, excessive facial or body hair and thinning or hair loss from the scalp. Some women will have all of these PCOS symptoms whilst other may just have a few and some women may have PCOS and never have any symptoms.

The severity of the symptoms can vary from women to women and can change over time; for example, if a woman becomes overweight her symptoms may get worse.
