Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a long term medical condition that affects about 1 out of every 10 young and adult women. PCOS doesn’t stop at a certain age; however, symptoms can often be managed with healthy eating, exercise and certain medication. Research has shown that losing as little as 5% of extra weight (if you are overweight) may help some women have regular periods and feel better. Science is always moving forward so a cure may be possible in the future.
