What Is PCOS?

Dr. Ruben Alvero, the Division Director of Women & Infants’ Fertility Center, discusses polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a common reproductive disorder affecting fertility in women.

Five to eight percent of the female population are affected by PCOS. This condition can cause irregular menstrual cycles, hyperandrogenism, obesity or diabetes – all of which can affect a woman’s ability to conceive.

Losing weight, diet and exercise can help treat PCOS symptoms. For women wanting to treat infertility caused by PCOS, surgery, fertility injections or in vitro fertilization are some of the available treatment options.
