The use of assisted reproduction in women with polycystic ovary syndrome


Approximately 70% of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can experience difficulty trying to conceive (Teede et al 2018). This can be due to increased hormone levels, higher weight, and irregularities in or absence of ovulation (Sirmans et al 2013). This research will investigate the range of strategies (use of complementary and alternative medicine, ovulation induction, intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilisation) used by Australian women with PCOS while trying to conceive .
