Hi dear Neha...
Thank you for choosing HCM...
PCOS is a syndrome which has many components in it:
-Multiple fluid filled follicles in ovary, menstrual irregularity
-Insulin resistance leading to Diabetes mellitus,Obesity
-excessive androgenic hormones:hairy face and neck
-chances of infertility are also there..
But no need to panic..Its a very common condition in women and many people have children..

You can overcome disease complication by following some simple steps:
-Reduce your weight
-Drugs like metformin can improve insulin sensitivity
-If you are planning for pregnancy then you can use ovulation strips to check if you are ovulating and try for a baby then
-Ovarian drilling can be performed to retain functional ovary
-If having problem with conception artificial insemination and invitro fertilization can be performed
-For acne, hairy skin and menstrual irregularities you can take contraceptive pills( containing cyproterone acetate). When you are trying for baby, stop using OCPs...

Feel free to ask if you have any quiery...
Thank u
