  • What does PCOS stand for?

PCOS stands for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

  • What is the cause of PCOS?

The main reason for PCOS is yet to be known. It’s observed that women who have it are more likely to have a sibling or mother who also has it, thus some doctors believe it is a hereditary, inherited disorder. Most experts believe that women with PCOS have an insulin or insulin secretion abnormality that causes the condition, and that this is why they are more prone to develop diabetes.

PCOS usually affects women after they begin menstruation or reach the age of puberty (typically around age 11).

Yes, it is possible because it is a hormonal imbalance. It can interfere with regular ovulation and result in infertility or subfertility in females.

  • Can IVF or ISCI help a PCOS patient conceive?

Yes. Many women with PCOS have been able to conceive with the help of reproductive treatments like IVF and IUI.
