Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.No it is not. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is caused by the increased androgen levels in the body. This disrupts the normal female hormone estrogen and progestin balance.Weight gain, irregular period, pelvic pain are common symptoms. Anti androgenic medications usually treat the symptoms well. Metformin, spironolactone, combination birth control pills ar standard treatmnt options.
