Lifetime reproduction outcomes in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.


Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a complex hormonal disorder common affecting one in five women and one in four Australian Indigenous women. It is one of the most common cause of infertility and more than two?thirds of women with PCOS required fertility treatment to conceive. Family planning in women with PCOS are therefore extremely important as the success of fertility treatment are highly dependent on age. We intend to examine throughout the women’s reproductive life, their fertility outcomes including the mean age of first delivery, use of fertility treatment, and final family size.
