PCOS is one of the most common and most misunderstood conditions that we treat as reproductive endocrinologists, and this week I'm delighted to be joined on the podcast by Dr. Lucky Sekhon of RMA of New York to talk all about it. PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome, and that name can lead to some confusion. A lot of people think that they probably have cysts in their ovaries. The truth is that all women have multiple cysts (which are really small follicles that house eggs) in their ovaries. Those with PCOS have follicles that look like what we call a "string of pearls" on the periphery of their ovaries, and often have irregular (or no) cycles.
