It is estimated that as many as 1 in 10 women in the UK suffer from PCOS, making it one of the most common causes of infertility. According to our consultant Dr Arpita Ray, Regional Lead Consultant, women with PCOS may find it more challenging to conceive, due to an imbalance of sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which may lead to irregular or absent periods. Other symptoms of this increasingly common condition may include ovarian cysts, acne, excess hair and obesity, but also none of these.
September is PCOS Awareness Month, with PCOS charities and organisations, such as Verity in the UK and PCOS Awareness Association in the US, aiming to raise awareness and increase understanding of the condition. If you would like advice on how PCOS may impact fertility do get in touch.
