Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a very common endocrine disorder in women that appears with many different symptoms and can cause many different medical problems.
There is no one typical PCOS "face", but there are certainly things that women with PCOS have in common.
Helping patients with PCOS achieve their family-building goals is our primary goal here at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), but we never lose sight of the medical issues associated with this common condition.
