Women’s Healthcast: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, with Laura Cooney

Since September was Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Awareness Month, we replayed one of our most popular episodes about the common condition, which affects between 10 and 20 percent of reproductive-aged women.

Though PCOS is the most common endocrine disorder for reproductive-aged people with ovaries, it can be hard to identify and diagnose. Laura Cooney, MD is a reproductive endocrinology and infertility specialist in the UW Department of Ob-Gyn. She discussed the criteria for diagnosing PCOS, how it can affect fertility, and why she’s so passionate about helping PCOS patients.
