This condition is the leading cause of female infertility. According to the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), about 6% of reproductive-aged Mexican women live with PCOS. They face various challenges related to this disorder, ranging from irregular menstrual cycles to difficulties in conceiving.

• High blood insulin levels. Excessive amounts of this hormone can overstimulate the ovaries, leading them to produce an increased amount of male hormones.

• Certain irregularities in the hypothalamus can lead to a rise in luteinizing hormone (LH). When LH outweighs follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), it prompts the ovaries to produce male hormones.


• Menstrual irregularities such as amenorrhea and opsomenorrhea
• Unwanted hair growth (hirsutism) on the face, chest, abdomen, legs, or buttocks
• Acne or skin blemishes
• Hair loss
• Muscular hypertrophy and breast atrophy
• Weight gain and obesity
