Do You Have Irregular Menses?
If so, you may have polycystic ovary syndrome.
Jane Newman, Clinical Research Coordinator at Brigham
and Women's Hospital, Harvard University School of Medicine, asked
me to tell you that
Irregular menses identify women at high risk for polycystic ovary syndrome
(PCOS), which exists in 6-10% of women of
reproductive age. PCOS is a major cause of infertility
and is linked to diabetes.

research on PCOS at Brigham and Women's
Hospital, the University of Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania State University
