In todays’ day and age, more and more women are being diagnosed with PCOS.

Health professionals say that 12-18% of women have PCOS with the youngest age being diagnosed is 11 years old. Of that they anticipate that 20% of women with PCOS will develop type 2 Diabetes by the time they turn 30 and 50% by the time they turn 40.

While there is some information on the possible causes of PCOS, and other health problems linked with PCOS the exact cause is unknown.
