Abstract: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex endocrine disorder, affecting up to 15% of women of reproductive age. The syndrome is characterized by oligo-anovulation, hyperandrogenism and polycystic ovaries. What constitutes the best definition of PCOS is still a matter of debate. Women with PCOS have a higher risk of developing abdominal obesity, insulin resistance with progression to type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and endometrial hyperplasia/cancer. The etiology of PCOS remains incompletely u... more
