Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.
Signs and symptoms of PCOS vary. A diagnosis of PCOS is made when you experience at least two of these signs
PCOS signs and symptoms are typically more severe if you're obese.
Despite being one of the most common hormonal disorders in women of reproductive age, few therapeutic options are available for women with PCOS that directly address the underlying pathophysiology of disease. Clinical studies are an important step to understanding the cause of and finding treatment for PCOS. If you have concerns about your menstrual periods, or if you are experiencing infertility, or if you have signs of excess androgen such as worsening hirsutism, acne and male-pattern baldness, you may be eligible to participate in a new research study or clinical trial.

This is a great way to make extra money and be involved in a research study that will help and benefit many people to come. I’ve really enjoyed myself with the program and with the staff.
"Thank you for your courtesy and kindness. I felt confident and comfortable. I would recommend the research study here. My coordinator was awesome and very caring."
Any stigma or hesitation about clinical research should be disregarded. A good learning program for research studies.
It's a good way to find out if there's some new drugs that can help people that have problems like mine and the people here are just wonderful to work with.
