Many helpful ways to relieve the symptoms of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Polycystic Ovaries can cause symptoms such as weight gain, hair thinning, irregular periods, depression and facial hair growth. PCOS is common in women of childbaring age and effects an estimated 1 in 15 women in the US.
PCOS is a complex condition, but it can often be reversed with the right nutritional and hormonal support. Supplementing with bioidentical natural progesterone for a few months is often enough to shrink the cysts and no further action is required.

Teratoma with fully formed tooth and hair. A teratoma is an encapsulated tumor with tissue or organ components, which whilst normal in themselves, may be quite different from surrounding tissues. Teratomas have been reported to contain hair, teeth, bone and, very rarely, more complex organs and body parts such as eyes, hands, feet, or other appendages. This particular teratoma consists of a tooth and hair which have formed inside an ovary. UCL Pathology Collections: Photograph Gemma Angel.
