Pcod is multifactorial. You have a genetic tendency, weight gain aggravates it. It is usually manifested as irregular menstrual cycles or infertility or hyperandrogenic symptoms like acne and increased facial hair. Long term -you may develop diabetes especially if you have a strong family history. So the best thing is to shed weight, many of the above problems will be solved.
