Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common reproductive, endocrine and metabolic disease in women, which usually occurs during adolescence.

Its exact etiology is still unclear, but it is mostly believed to be related to genetic, environmental and other factors.

Polycystic ovary syndrome can cause excessive androgen in the patient’s body, so hyperandrogenism is prone to occur, which can easily increase the secretion of sebum, resulting in excessive oil on the face, back, chest and other positions of the patient, and hair follicles. The sebaceous ducts become clogged, and bacterial infection triggers an inflammatory response that leads to acne.

What are the dangers of polycystic ovary syndrome?

In severe cases, diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and endometrial cancer may occur in the long-term.
