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.

We have kept our clinics open as long as possible but now in line with government and regulatory advice, for the safety of our patients and our staff, we will stop initiating all new treatments and suspend current treatments.
Although we appreciate this is distressing for our patients we are committed to play our part in promoting social distancing and reducing the burden on our NHS and sadly we will be temporarily suspending all face-to-face interactions as quickly as possible.
We know the coming days and weeks will be filled with uncertainty and we want to help support you as best we can – our helpline email@example.com is staffed by members of our patient services and nursing teams and our normal counselling services will remain available by telephone or secure virtual platforms.
We have been helping to create families for 40 years and we are confident our mission will continue once the current crisis has passed. When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming you back into our clinics.
Take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your communities. ... See MoreSee Less
