Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is believed to affect up to one in 10 women, many of whom will not even know they have it until, for example, they run into problems trying to get pregnant. A hidden hormonal disorder, it can be difficult to diagnose since half of all sufferers have almost no symptoms, whilst others must put up with a range of embarrassing, seemingly unrelated problems, including unexplained weight gain, skin problems including adult acne, excess facial hair and bloating.
