Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately PCOS or polycystic ovary is very difficult to treat. It is a genetic problem so sometimes you have to be on medication for a long time. Complications of untreated pcos are: irregular menses, acne, increased facial hair, weight gain, infertility, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and endometrial cancer.
But don’t be afraid. Being on medications can help. The first step is to repeat your vaginal ultrasound. We can plan the next step based on that.
P.S. Watch out for my upcoming write-up on PCOS.
