Comparison of Indices between PCOS and Non-PCOS Patients in Assisted Reproduction

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients are always infertile, but could have progenies by assisted reproductive technology (ART). Polycystic ovary syndrome patients have abnormal hormonal levels, and higher body mass index (BMI) than non-PCOS patients statistically. Although PCOS patients showed no advantages in ART, their babies had no risks in general characteristics compared to non-PCOS patients.


Objective: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) patients are infertile in most cases, but could have progenies through assisted reproductive technology (ART). Birth weight, which has been extensively investigated recently, were used as an indicator of ART risks in offspring.

Methods: Characters of PCOS patients and their babies were compared with non-PCOS ones.
