In my opinion yes. PCOS is serious, and should be taken seriously and not lightly. Not many people know how serious PCOS is. I am not posting this to scare anyone, I just want you to be aware of how serious it is. There are many long term medical conditions associated with PCOS ,and here are some.



Polycystic ovary syndrome


Long term monitoring
Given the longer term risks that have been identified, particularly in women who are overweight, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, the increased risks of diabetes, heart disease and cancer of the lining of the uterus, it is important for the GP to keep an eye on these and provide appropriate counselling to reduce the risks as much as possible. The extra risks of smoking should be made clear, and diet advice given regarding excess fatty foods & weight control. Blood tests for cholesterol levels and diabetes should be considered, perhaps every one or two years from age 35 and even earlier if there is a family history.



So try to do everything you can to control your PCOS, take your meds if your insulin resistance, and have high blood pressure, try to lose weight, and eat right to lower cholesterol, and according to them if you smoke- quit.
