Thanks for writing in.
PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome
is a group of symptoms. Most often there is weight gain, delayed or absent periods and increase in unwanted hair growth. It must be diagnosed by doing test for female hormone levels and ultrasound
scan. On ultrasound scan, the volume of ovaries exceeding 10 cc with echogenic stroma and peripherally distributed small follicles (necklace pattern) are hall mark for diagnosis.Pregnancy
in patients having PCOS can go unnoticed for a while due to irregular periods
. To confirm pregnancy, I suggest you repeat home pregnancy test at least 15 days after unprotected sex for confirmation.
and back pains could be due to generalized weakness or hormonal imbalance.
Hope this helps.
