Dr. Trolice Joins IVF Babble and Expert Panel to Discuss PCOS
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disorder of women in their reproductive years, affecting 5-10% of these patients. The classic symptoms are irregular periods, hair growth in a male body pattern and weight gain. However, 40% of women with PCOS are thin and 30% do not have excess hair.
PCOS is often part of a metabolic syndrome that involves risks for diabetes, elevated cholesterol and/or triglycerides, cardiovascular disease, as well as uterine pre-cancer and infertility.
