About Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) affects up to 15 percent of women in the U.S. and over 21 percent in some parts of the world. Despite affecting hundreds of millions of women globally, most people are uninformed about the syndrome. PCOS is a serious genetic, hormone, metabolic and reproductive disorder that can lead to lifelong complications, psychosocial disorders, obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, endometrial cancer, maternal/fetal health complications and other conditions. PCOS is a leading cause of female infertility and the most common endocrine (hormone) disorder in women. There is currently no cure for PCOS, so it is important that patients and healthcare providers learn effective ways of managing PCOS and its many symptoms and associated health risks.
