While researchers have suspected that PCOS has a genetic link due to the tendency for many women in the same family to have PCOS, there have no definitive studies to prove it. However, a new study has shown that two genetic mutations are more common in women with PCOS. These genetic mutations have been shown to cause changes within the body that lead to higher androgen levels which are typical in PCOS.
