Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for coming to us with your question.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. Infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, and obesity can all occur in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Having PCOS can increase your risk for infertility. Please talk with your gynecologist, who can best guide you as you try to conceive.

You might find helpful information regarding PCOS by visiting the EmpowHER Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Home Page:
