Hirsutism is the growth of dark, coarse hair on the face, chest and back – typical of where men have hair.
An additional sign of PCOS is infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual periods.
This can include fewer than nine periods in one year, more than 35 days between periods or abnormally heavy periods.
In PCOS, the ovaries in the reproductive system may enlarge and develop
numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) that surround the eggs.
As a result, the ovaries may not regularly release eggs, which can affect fertility.
