Brief Answer:
Hi and welcome

Detailed Answer:
I would say this is somewhere between mild and severe grade. There are about 10 cysts length between 3-6mm and there is no sign of cyst wall irregularity. Also, the central part of ovaries show no cysts. So we can say that this isnt complicated PCOS and this is most common and typical US appearance of PCOS in your age. Of course, severity of PCOS is evaluated by other factors such as period regularity, hormonal levels and symptoms(pain, bleeding, weight gain, hair grow). All you need is frequent US follow up, every 6 months and consult your gynaecologist about hormonal therapy. Wish you good health. Regards
