Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder that affects women of reproductive age. It is a complex condition that can present itself in different ways, depending on the individual. There are four types of PCOS, and each type has its own set of symptoms and treatment options.

1. The first type of PCOS is insulin-resistant PCOS. This type is characterized by high levels of insulin in the body, which can cause weight gain, acne, and irregular periods. Women with insulin-resistant PCOS may also have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

2. The second type of PCOS is post-pill PCOS. This type of PCOS occurs after a woman stops taking hormonal birth control. It can take several months for the body to adjust to the changes in hormone levels, and during this time, women may experience irregular periods, acne, and hair loss.

3. The third type of PCOS is inflammatory PCOS. This type is caused by chronic inflammation in the body. Women with inflammatory PCOS may experience acne, hair loss, and irregular periods. They may also have an increased risk of developing heart disease and other chronic health conditions.

4 The fourth type of PCOS is adrenal PCOS. This type is caused by an overproduction of androgens, which are male hormones. Women with adrenal PCOS may also experience the acne, hair loss, and irregular periods but they may have the added risk of developing adrenal gland disorders.

Hormonal birth control and medications that regulate insulin and androgen levels may also be prescribed.
