What symptoms should I look out for?
If you experience symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), they'll usually become apparent in your late teens or early twenties. Not all women with PCOS will have all the symptoms, and each symptom can vary from mild to severe. Many women only experience menstrual problems and/or are unable to conceive.
Common symptoms of PCOS include:
- Irregular periods
- Difficulty getting pregnant (due to irregular ovulation or failure to ovulate)
- Excessive hair growth - usually on the face, chest, back or buttocks
- Weight gain
- Thinning hair and hair loss from the head
- Oily skin or acne
What should I do if I think I am at risk of Osteoporosis?
You should book a consultation with your GP. They will be able to refer you for tests to confirm a possible diagnosis of PCOS. Your next step will be to consult with a Dietitian as diet and lifestyle are pivotal in the management of PCOS.
