Abstract

Objective: To investigate the relationship between body mass index and intercourse compliance in the Reproductive Medicine Network's Pregnancy in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (RMN PPCOS) Trial. Design: Post hoc data analysis of subjects in the RMN PPCOS Trial. Setting: Academic medical centers. Intervention(s): None. Patient(s): Six hundred twenty-six infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) with a mean age of 28.1 ± 4 years and mean body mass index (BMI) of 35.2 ± 8.7 kg/m2. Main Outcome Measure(s): Intercourse compliance and BMI. Result(s): Overall, body mass index was not associated with increased intercourse compliance. However, although patients with BMI ≥35 were less likely to ovulate than patients with BMI <35, they tend to be more compliant with intercourse frequency in ovulatory cycles than patients with BMI <35. Conclusion(s): BMI was not associated with intercourse compliance or noncompliance. An elevated BMI in infertile women with PCOS is not associated with poor intercourse compliance.
