Two years, multiple doctors often needed to diagnose polycystic ovary syndrome, study shows

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder – and most common cause of infertility – affecting 9 to 18 percent of women around the world. Despite the prevalence of the complex and chronic condition, one-third of women diagnosed with PCOS saw at least three health professionals over the course of two years before receiving a diagnosis, acc ording to a new study.

Authors: Palomba S, Falbo A, Daolio J, Battaglia FA, LA Sala GB Abstract Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common female disorder with a pathogenesis still today not completely known. To the present, PCOS is considered more than just a reproductive disorder since several metabolic consequences that could affect women's health during different stages of reproductive and post-reproductive life were reported. The aim of the current review was to evaluate present evidence-based data regarding the pregnancy complications in infertile patients with PCOS. An extensive literature search until February 2018 was performe...

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most prevalent endocrine pathology among women in reproductive age. Its main symptoms are oligo or amenorrhea, hyperandrogenism and the presence of ovarian cysts. It is also associated with infertility, obesity and insulin resistance. Mainly due to its heterogeneity, PCOS treatments are directed to manage its symptoms and to prevent associated diseases. The correct formation and regression of blood vessels during each ovarian cycle is indispensable for proper follicular development, ovulation and corpus luteum formation. The importance of these processes opened a new and promising fi...

This study recruited PCOS patients and adopted testosterone therapy to analyze its effect on expression of nuclear peroxisome proliferation activated receptor γ (PPARγ), and cytochrome P450 aromatase (P450arom) in ovary granular cells of patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: PCOS and non-PCOS patients were treated with testosterone at 1.0 nmol/L, 10 nmol/L. qRT-PCR was used to detect the expressions of PPARγ and P450arom while Western blot was performed for the evaluation of protein expression. RESULTS: In the experimental group, the level of PPARγ mRNA was significantly elevated whilst the expres...

Abstract Stress is deeply rooted in the society and women are frequently exposed to psychological, physical and physiological stressors. Psychological stress disturbs reproductive health by inducing generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and thereby oxidative stress (OS). The increased OS may affect physiology of ovary, oocyte quality and cause female reproductive health disorders. To overcome stress-mediated reproductive health disorders in women, shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is frequently recommended in Ayurvedic system of medicine. Although shatavari is one of the major health tonics and most popular ra...

Impaired progesterone (P4) signaling is linked to endometrial dysfunction and infertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Here, we report for the first time that elevated expression of progesterone receptor (PGR) isoforms A and B parallels increased estrogen receptor (ER) expression in PCOS-like rat uteri. The aberrant PGR-targeted gene expression in PCOS-like rats before and after implantation overlaps with dysregulated expression of Fkbp52 and Ncoa2, two genes that contribute to the development of uterine P4 resistance. In vivo and in vitro studies of the effects of metformin on the regulation of the uter...

In conclusion, levels of AMH, IGF1 and leptin found in follicular fluid are sensitive markers for anovulatory fertility disorders. AMH, IGF1 and leptin levels in follicular fluid have no relation to the fertility disorders caused by endometriosis, fallopian tube damage or disorders with unknown etiology. ABBREVIATIONS: AMH: anti-Müllerian hormone; IGF1: insulin-like growth factor 1; PCOS: polycystic ovary syndrome. PMID: 29595066 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Two recent trials published in theNew England Journal of Medicine found that otherwise healthy infertile women without polycystic ovaries had similar rates of ongoing pregnancy and live births from in vitro fertilization (IVF) regardless of whether the transferred embryos were fresh or frozen.

(Natural News) According to the results of a study, women who take metformin, a common diabetes medication, could be putting their children at increased risk of being obese or overweight. More pregnant women with gestational diabetes or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are taking metformin to treat their conditions. PCOS usually causes infertility, and the condition can put...

Converted from androgen via aromatase enzyme, this hormone is indispensable to glucose homeostasis, immune robustness, bone health, cardiovascular health, fertility, and neural functions. However, estrogen is at the center of almost all human pathologies as well-infectious, autoi...
