Infertility and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Polycystic ovary syndrome (or PCOS) is a common hormonal condition in which women produce a surplus of androgens. This causes irregular ovulation, or even a lack of
Androgens are sometimes called "male hormones." Men have very high levels of androgens, which are responsible for male body changes like hair growth and muscle mass. In women, androgens are necessary to make estrogen. Women with PCOS have androgen levels in the "high normal" range (for women). The additional androgen in these women can cause excessive hair growth and acne.
Excess androgen production also leads to irregular or absent ovulation, which women experience as irregular or absent menstrual periods. Because of the problems with ovulation, women with PCOS may have difficulty becoming pregnant.
Many women with PCOS are resistant to the action of the hormone insulin. This means that it takes larger than normal amounts of
insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. These women are at increased risk for
diabetes and heart disease. High insulin levels caused by insulin resistance can lead to excessive androgen production.
PCOS affects approximately one of every 10 women.
