    Good evening. First of all PCOS is a problem in which there is hormonal imbalance. On ultrasound Scan, there are are small multiple cysts in the ovaries. The cause is not fully known but there may be a genetic component to it. Your symptoms may be as a result of other geological issues unrelated to PCOS like pelvic inflammatory disease etc. But you need a gynecologist evaluation

    Hello. You don't need to worry about having PCOS. Lots of ladies have hair of their faces an chests. It ties not mean they have PCOS. It's just one symptom of the disease. It's unspecific on its own. No a Virgin foes not have to worry about pelvic inflammatory disease either. Take care
