PCOS Challenge: The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association

PCOS Challenge Economic Burden Study

You, or someone you know, may be eligible to participate in an important PCOS Challenge research study.
The purpose of this study is to estimate the economic costs of having PCOS in terms of quality of life and work productivity. The study is seeking women with PCOS and women without PCOS (controls) who are willing to take a 15-minute survey to help us with our research.

Your participation will be anonymous and help us tremendously in spreading more awareness of polycystic ovary syndrome as well as better understanding the financial and societal burden that can come with the diagnosis.

Study Title

Assessing Indirect and Intangible Economic Burden In PCOS: The PCOS Challenge® Study

Study Description

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women. PCOS affects 5-20% of women depending on the diagnostic criteria used. It is also one of the most common causes of subfertility and a risk factor for type 2 diabetes mellitus, among other disorders. A clearer estimate of the economic burden of PCOS will allow for a more accurate prioritization of the disorder as a public health interest.
