Acne and PCOS
I have PCOS and as a symptom I get acne. However the acne usually only appears on the left side of my face. Some people have mentioned that it has something to do with the sleeping on that side or holding the phone there but I am right handed and I favour sleeping on my right side and also hold the phone to my right side. I also experience darker facial hair growth on the left side as well. Is this because the left of my ovaries is playing up more than the right?
PCOS is a disorder in which, along with other abnormalities, there is an excessive amount of androgenic (male) hormone in females. This gives rise to acne and facial hairs in females affected by PCOS. It is also one of the leading causes of infertility among women. Sleeping on one side or holding phone on one side is no reason for the appearance of acne or facial hairs. It is just a matter of chance that you are getting problems usually on left side. Hope it helps. Take care and regards. You can further read it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polycystic_ovary_syndrome
