Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. PCOS or polycistic ovarian syndrome is a condition in which the function of the ovaries / ovaries is disrupted in women who are of childbearing age. This condition makes the hormones in a woman's body imbalanced and causes various symptoms such as irregular menstruation, oily and acne-prone skin, excessive hair growth, difficulty getting pregnant, hair loss and thinning of the head, and weight gain.
The causes and risk factors for PCOS are:
Heredity or genetic hormonal imbalance in the body The body's tissues are immune to the hormone insulin
While regarding your question, to find out whether or not this cyst is in your ovaries, the examination that needs to be done is an ultrasound, and the cyst will remain regardless of whether you are menstruating or not. So if you've had an ultrasound before and your doctor doesn't detect the cyst, you probably don't have PCOS.
What you need to know is that it is true that a poor lifestyle such as excess or less weight, fluctuating body weight, habits of eating fatty foods, fatigue, often staying up late or lack of sleep, and going on a diet can make a person's menstrual irregularities and the appearance of spots in the middle. cycle. That's why try to improve your lifestyle, and if you want to get pregnant immediately, frequent sexual intercourse up to 3-4 times a week, consume high nutritious foods such as vegetables and fruit, know your fertile period and consult your obstetrician. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
