Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition where ovarian function is disrupted leading to irregular menstrual cycles, infertility and many other issues.
In Western medicine, there are 3 major features of PCOS; irregular periods, excess androgen, and polycystic ovaries.
Some of the signs and symptoms include:
Irregular menstrual cycle
Weight gain - especially belly fat

In Chinese medicine PCOS arises when Qi in the meridians that drive menstruation, conception and pregnancy become blocked or stagnant. These blockages can occur for many reasons, and left unchecked these issues manifest resulting in signs and symptoms.
