Women with PCOS may have symptoms such as:

PCOS can affect ovulation and lead to infertility.
The exact cause of PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) in Western medicine is not fully understood, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors, some of which include insulin resistance, inflammation, and hormonal imbalances.
From the Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, PCOS is believed to be caused by factors including, constitutional weakness, dietary habits, lifestyle habits, stress, and more.
These factors can lead to the accumulation of phlegm, dampness, blockages, stagnant blood, and Qi circulation in the body.
The good news is that TCM can provide a natural remedy for PCOS. TCM treatment for PCOS typically involves using acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and dietary therapy to regulate Qi and blood circulation, clear heat and dampness, and balance hormone levels. By addressing the underlying imbalances in the body, TCM aims to restore overall health and fertility.
