The various symptoms associated with PCOS is very different in terms of the individual woman.


Some have only minor symptoms, while others are influenced by many difficult symptoms.


It is also true that PCO may be present in a number of years without knowing anything about it and at a time so the symptoms begin gradually to emerge. The symptoms can also change with the years.


The first symptoms can be seen by some as early as 14 years of age and can prove that:

  • Irregular menstruation, often with long periods between ie. 6 less a contraction of one year or perhaps completely ceased menstruation. More regular but sharp contraction can be seen.

  • Tendency to weight gain - particularly as the "apple shape"

  • The trend to increased hairiness

  • The trend for impure skin

  • Increased androgens (seen in the control of blood tests)

In addition, tells a great many women with PCOS, they tend to:

  • Fatigue

  • Headache

  • Hot flush

  • Sugar "addiction"

  • Lack of satiety

  • Sleep Disorders


Since this is all subjective symptoms - ie. symptoms, which can even be noticed, but the doctor can not measure - is still lacking scientific proof that they have connection with PCO.


Within the PCO, the association's auspices will therefore launched a scientific study, where a large group of women with and without PCO will be asked to complete questionnaires about their symptoms. We hope to be able to achieve scientific acceptance that these symptoms are consistent with PCO - or rejection of a link.
