When I was first told I had PCOS all they found where minor cysts on one ovary, but then again at the time they where unable to find the other ovary.
When they did find it it there where no cysts within it that could be seen. However, that being said when I had my emergency hyster that clean ovary turned out to be a dud - hence why no cysts had developed (they can not develop if the ovary is non-functional to start with). Also learned why my other ovary only had minimal cysts was because it was itself over half way to being a dud.
But there is more to PCOS then reproduction issues or side effects. It effects the whole endrocrine system, such as blood glucose, hormone production (or lack there of) and other areas of the female body (hair growth or lack there of). In many cases getting control over it can help in others areas or make other areas worse off.
I know for me since the hyster and getting it all cleaned out, the only side effects of the PCOS I still have is Diabetes type 2, issues with weight loss (but I am also in menopause so that does add to the weight loss issues) and thinning hair (other then that, I've no sign of the PCOS that I once had).
