Abstract

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the major causes of decreased fertility in young females. Multiple extra- and intra-ovarian factors which are worked together or separately are responsible for sub-fertility. However, still, ovulatory dysfunction is the cornerstone that occurs as a result of hormonal dysfunction and consequently affects oocytes' quality, embryonic development and finally, implantation failure with a significant number of females seek assisted reproduction for getting pregnancy.
