PCOS in Australian women: a chronic illness with psychological, reproductive and metabolic features
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder that affects women who are of childbearing age. It is associated with many complications including infertility, but also carries long-term complications such as diabetes, high blood pressure and mood disorders. In this research project, we will compare women with PCOS to those without PCOS over time to try and understand what the key contributing factors are to the development of PCOS, the long-term complications of PCOS and in particular to study the effect of body weight. We will also study the relationship between PCOS status and lifestyle factors and health outcomes at different lifestages including before pregnancy, during pregnancy and post-partum.
