What causes PCOS?
Women with PCOS have two types of hormones, insulin and androgens, that can be made in higher levels than in women without PCOS. Family genes contribute to PCOS. Women with PCOS are 50 per cent more likely to have a mother, aunt or sister with PCOS, and the condition is more common in women of Asian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and African backgrounds. Lifestyle factors can also worsen the symptoms of PCOS. For example, diet and being overweight.
Symptoms of PCOS
Symptoms of PCOS can include:
• irregular periods or no periods
• scalp hair thinning or loss
• excess hair growth on your face or body • pimples
• weight gain
• emotional problems, such as anxiety and
• difficulties getting pregnant
• higher risk of type 2 diabetes.
Each person can have different symptoms, and symptoms can change over time.
How do you know if you have PCOS?
Your doctor will check your body, medical history, blood test results and maybe also ultrasound results to see if you have PCOS. You are likely to have PCOS if you have two of the following three problems:
1. irregular periods or no periods
2. symptoms like excess facial or body hair and pimples, OR high levels of male type hormones
3. an ultrasound showing too many cysts that look like ‘bubbles’ in your ovaries. Having some cysts is OK, but your doctor can tell you what is ‘too many’ for you and your age. Ultrasound is only done if 1 and 2 are not present, but is not usually recommended for women aged under 20.
Living with PCOS
PCOS cannot be cured, but your doctor can give you advice on how to manage your symptoms.
• If you are overweight for your height, even a 5-10% loss of weight can improve hormone levels and can lead to less symptoms. For example, if you weigh 80kg, losing 4-8kg can help
• Irregular periods can be managed with hormones, the Pill and other medications
• Excess hair can be managed with waxing, laser hair removal, other hair removal strategies, the Pill and other medications
• Acne can be managed with the Pill and other medications
