It is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women and many women are not aware they have PCOS, which can lead to serious complications beyond infertility and menstrual problems like chronic obesity, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid disorder and ovarian cancer. PCOS needs to be better understood by women to help resolve infertility issues and to improve general health and longevity.
