Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) has a prevalence of between 5-10% American women of child-bearing age. With a variety of symptoms, different diagnosis methods, misunderstood criterion, and both genetic and environmental causes, PCOS can be easily missed, especially in patients whose symptoms have developed sporadically. Alice Y. Chang, M.D., breaks down this complicated condition, including treatment strategies based on the patient’s primary concern related to the disease.
