Write your answer hereHello,
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS),  is a hormonal problem that causes women to have a variety of symptoms. 
When a teen or a young woman is first diagnosed with PCOS, she often feels confused. It is a difficult diagnosis to understand and the symptoms can be distressing. Girls may also feel frustrated and/or sad if they are having a hard time losing weight, dealing with acne, excess body hair, and menstrual irregularities.
The principal signs and symptoms of PCOS are related to menstrual disturbances and elevated levels of male hormones.

Women with PCOS are at a higher risk for a number of illnesses, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease etc.
While there is no miracle-cure for PCOS, it can be treated. A healthy lifestyle that includes nutritious foods and daily exercise can have a profound and positive effect on the endocrine system, particularly in cases when a young woman is overweight or obese. Studies have shown that losing even 10% of body weight in overweight and obese women with PCOS can eliminate some of the symptoms associated with this disorder.

You must make it sure to get your daughter a right and regular treatment.Giving no treatment would do more harm to your daughter.
Keep in regular touch with endocrinologist and a Gynecologist
