Polycystic ovaries symptoms – keep your hair gorgeous

Polycystic ovaries symptoms – keep your hair gorgeous

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects 10% of women (www.pcos-uk.org.uk) in the UK. PCOS occurs in females when there is a hormone imbalance and your body produces too many androgens (male hormones). The condition affects women in different ways but the most common polycystic ovaries symptoms are:

  • Irregular periods
  • Difficulty becoming pregnant
  • Weight problems – being overweight, rapid weight gain, difficulty losing weight
  • Oily skin & acne
  • Excessive body or facial hair
  • Thinning hair or hair loss

These symptoms are most apparent in your mid-twenties and the majority are treatable. Hair loss or thinning can be distressing and difficult to deal with and PCOS can cause this by the hair follicles becoming sensitive to the male hormone, androgen which decreases hair growth. There are ways to treat hair thinning and hair loss brought on by PCOS and often the oral contraceptive is prescribed to help balance hormones whereas topical application of Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum or Hair Growth Serum Intense, developed for noticeably thinning hair can help keep you and your hair looking and feeling gorgeous.

Among wedding-planning and baking (I make a mean lemon drizzle cake), my main passions are writing and good hair. On the eternal quest for long, luscious locks I’ve tried my fair share of shampoos and I’m confident I know what products make the cut.
