What happens in PCOS

Hormones trigger a wide range of procedures, including development and production of energy. Generally, the main work of a hormone is to signal the arrival of another hormone.

For some unknown reasons that haven’t been understood by scientists, the hormones become unbalanced in PCOS. The change in one hormone starts a change in another and the process goes on. For example:

  • The sex hormones become unbalanced. Usually, the ovaries also produce a very small amount of androgens (male sex hormones). In Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, they begin making marginally more androgens. This may stop your ovulation process, develop acne, and develop unwanted facial and body hair.
  • The body of a woman suffering from PCOS may have an issue in the utilization of insulin, which is known as insulin resistance. When the body doesn’t utilize insulin properly, the level of sugar increases. After some time, this expands your possibility of getting diabetes.
