Study Description

Researchers at the Penn Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Center would like to gain a deeper understanding of the counseling PCOS patients receive about risks to mother and baby during pregnancy. It is recognized that PCOS is linked to obesity, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels as well as psychiatric conditions, like anxiety and depression. PCOS may also be related to several pregnancy complications. There is a lack of awareness of these complications among many patients and healthcare providers.
