Abstract

Given that polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is associated with oligo-ovulatory infertility and is an inherited trait, we hypothesized that the families of patients with PCOS are smaller than those of matched controls. However, our study of 106 white patients with PCOS, ages 18-45, and 53 healthy eumenorrheic nonhirsute white controls did not indicate a difference in family size between the groups; these results have important implications for the design of prospective studies of the heritability and genetics of PCOS.
