Can I Have PCOS Without Cysts Or Insulin Resistance?

Ans: Yes. While the condition was discovered by researchers in women who had polycystic ovaries, the increased complexity of this syndrome has long been misunderstood. PCOS can also happen without ovarian cysts and insulin resistance (which is thought to be a key cause of the condition).

You may have what is referred to as “Idiopathic Hirsutism,” a condition in which women do not have ovarian cysts and no insulin resistance. Such women have elevated levels of male hormones that cause symptoms like acne, excessive hair growth on the body and thinning of hair on the head.
