Is polycystic ovary syndrome serious?

A Answers (1)

  • Although the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are more embarrassing than serious, it has the potential to lead to very severe complications. The most common of these symptoms is infertility, since PCOS disrupts the release of an egg during ovulation. As well as infertility, PCOS can also lead to blood diseases like diabetes, heart disease, liver inflammation, uterine bleeding, sleep apnea, and endometrial cancer. This is why it is so important to monitor your PCOS closely to prevent further complications.
