How many of you have been told by drug dealers that you have PCOS because you are overweight? Next time challenge them as even slim people get it. The quickest way to get it is get onto any type of contraceptives which also leads to cancer and infertility. Another way is when your body is under stress or over exerted. When you are stressed, your body releases extra cortisol into the bloodstream. This cortisol then goes straight to the Pancreas sending the Pancreas into over drive to produce and push out more insulin than necessary into the bloodstream which will naturally lead to the development of cysts in the ovaries or elsewhere in the body. Due to the excess insulin, this also leads other things such as weight gain, unwanted facial and body hair etc.
