Polycystic Ovaries and Laser Hair Removal

Millions of women have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) as this condition is incredibly common. It is caused by fluid filled cysts growing on the ovaries, and while some women will experience very few if any symptoms, others will find their condition results in hormone imbalances. A consequence of this condition can be that the ovaries begin to produce more male hormones than normal.

What Causes PCOS?

It is not really known why this condition develops, but it is thought it might be hereditary. It is more commonly found in women who have diabetes or high cholesterol levels, or who are overweight.

What are the Symptoms of PCOS?

PCOS can result in the production of excess facial and body hair. Other symptoms include irregular periods, acne, weight gain, sleep apnoea, pain in the pelvic area, and depression or anxiety. Women with this condition may also have fertility problems, as the production of excess male hormones can affect the development and release of eggs during monthly ovulation.

Laser hair removal for PCOS is more likely to be an on-going process.
