What is PCOS?
PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a medical condition whereby women’s hormones are out of balance and can cause excessive hair growth in a number of areas of the body, including the face. The hormone imbalance is caused by an excess or an increase in androgens, which can present a range of physical symptoms on the face and body. The cause of PCOS is unknown, and there are sometimes genetic links to it. As there is currently no cure for PCOS, your doctor will prescribe, test and recommend solutions for your symptoms depending on what you are experiencing.
