Are PCOS and female infertility related?

By Dr. Estefanía Rodríguez Ferradas.

Yes, they're related. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a hormonal and metabolic condition that affects ovarian function. One of the most characteristic symptoms is irregular menstruation, present in 70% of patients with PCOS. These are women who usually have long menstrual cycles, even some months without a period because ovulations are altered or even absent. If there is no ovulation or ovulation does not occur normally every month, the chances of pregnancy are lower.

It is described that due to PCOS 40% of these women will consult for fertility problems. When this happens, an exhaustive study must be carried out to assess which treatments can improve the fertility of each woman naturally, and when we should start a reproduction treatment in each case.
