      Hey Jessy
      Polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS is treated by a number of ways. Making sure you eat healthily and are active is recommended but there are lots of drugs that can help too. Most act by working on sex hormones and some may have side effects. If you think you may have this, or are worried about your health, please see your doctor they will know much more about this then I do.

      HIya! Hmmmm, only just saw this question that is a bit strange – sorry about that! Polycystic ovary syndrome can be treated with medication that regulates certain types of hormones like insulin – insulin balances glucose (sugar) in the body. PCOS affects about 5 to 10 % of the female population so it’s quite common – doctors know quite a lot about it thankfully!
