PCOS and Thyroid
While researchers aren’t quite sure how these two conditions are related, it is clear that there is a bidirectional relationship.

PCOS and thyroid conditions also share common characteristics, like period irregularities, increased insulin resistance, and dysregulation of the immune system.
