It's estimated that one in every 10 to 15 women has polycystic ovarian syndrome, a.k.a.​ To be diagnosed with PCOS, a woman just needs to meet two of the three criteria: high levels of androgens (male sex hormones), lost or irregular periods, and polycystic ovaries.​ According to Dr.

Women with PCOS have been found to report an increase in problems with sexual function. This may be because women may be overweight.

For people trying to become pregnant, PCOS can make it harder to time sex to the fertile days of their menstrual cycle, when ovulation happens.
