PCOS, or PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome, is a complex heterogeneous endocrine disorder, in simple terms - It is a hormonal disorder exclusively present in women, caused by the excess of Androgens(The male sex hormone).

This imbalance of hormones causes irregular periods, hormonal imbalance, and insulin resistance.

PCOS affects 12-15% of the population of women. That is a LOT of women.

PCOS also is incurable, and the cause of this disease is yet unknown, and now here comes the kicker obesity makes it worse, but losing weight when you have PCOS is difficult. Does that mean you give up if you are unfit and have PCOS? Not in a million years.
