Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can cause depression, but it is not a symptom of the condition. PCOS causes male pattern balding, excessive hair growth, acne, weight gain, and an irregular period. All of which would cause any woman to become depressed.

What is the treatment of cystic ovaries?

Cysts on the ovaries have to be removed surgically by a gynecologist. Actually, they don't have to be removed. I used to work in an OB/GYN office, and we had several patients that had cysts and didn't need surgery. It depends on the severity of them and how much pain and discomfort they put you through. Also, the main reason that patients with poly cystic ovarian syndrome usually undergo surgery is because they want to get pregnant. Otherwise, there are several medications your doctor can prescribe.

Can a tubal ligation be the cause of ovarian cysts for a 24-year-old and could it complicate this condition?

A woman with PCOS would generally not be having a tubal ligation. Contrary to a previous answer, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (Stein-Leventhal Syndrome), is a rare condition that generally causes women to not have periods and they are usually sterile and may have masculine features. Tubal ligation has no relationship to ovarian cysts. All women form ovarian cysts, that is part of the ovulation process. If the cysts are smaller than 5 cm. in diameter and resolve within one cycle in women under age 30, 99% of the cysts are benign. Some women, if ther are no contraindications, even those who have had tubal ligations will go on birth control pills to prevent ovarian cysts, since oral contraceptives stop women from ovulating and consequently will prevent most ovarian cysts. The last answerer has it all wrong. They are talking about a whole different ailment. Ovarian cysts are very common in women and are usually harmless and resolve on their own. Having a tubal ligation does not prevent nor cause ovarian cysts in any way. So PCOS and ovarian cysts are two totally different problems.

Does Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome create added difficulty when attempting to lose weight?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) does not by itself cause added difficulty losing weight. Insulin resistance (IR) causes PCOS. Insulin resistance makes it harder to lose weight, because a high insulin level: 1. Makes every bit of sugar from the carbohydrates you eat go into the cells of your body. 2. Stimulates your appetite. For an excellent discussion of PCOS and its relationship to insulin resistance, see the "Pathogenesis" portion of the following web page:
