• Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, is thought to affect one in ten women of childbearing age.

  • This disease is one of the primary causes of female fertility disorders.

It is the most common hormonal disease in women of childbearing age, and one of the leading causes of female fertility problems: polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS. Irregular menstrual cycles - even complete absence of periods -, hirsutism, acne even after puberty or even pigment spots and anxiety are among the symptoms of this disease. It would affect 10 to 15% of women, and can have a strong impact on a daily basis. A condition whose causes remain unknown to this day, and for which "no preventive or curative treatment exists", indicates Inserm. Management consists of reducing symptoms and preventing complications.
