PCOS certainly has some genetic component, although the exact genetic mechanism has not been clearly defined. As many as 50% of mothers and sisters of PCOS women are similarly affected. However, your physician should also exclude congenital adrenal hyperplasia, a condition where the adrenal glands produce excessive amounts of male hormones. This too runs in families. Best of luck.
