This in turn proves that women maybe fertile in spite of the presence of PCO, therefore the objective of this study was to compare the female reproductive organs morphology between fertile and infertile women with polycystic ovaries
are usually ovaries that contain a large number of harmless cysts and, in some women, the levels of the male hormone testosterone are also abnormally high.
On the basis of the NIH meeting in 2003, any two of the three are sufficient to confirm the diagnosis of PCOS: (1) specific morphology of polycystic ovaries
in ultrasonogaphy findings, (2) hyperandrogenism (biochemical or clinical), and (3) oligo- or amenorrhoea.
They differ markedly on the necessity of hyperandrogenism for diagnosing PCOS and the relevance of an ultrasound finding of polycystic ovaries
Goodman, who chairs the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists' task force on hyperandrogenic disorders and was not involved with the AES task force, "the ultrasound finding of polycystic ovaries
is not a consistent element of the metabolic and endocrine disorder of PCOS.
The diagnosis is made when two out of three components are present, such as hyperandrogenism, polycystic ovaries
The researchers used ultrasound to determine whether 134 PCOS patients had polycystic ovaries
9 These criteria comprised a) Oligo and/or anovulation; b) clinical and/or biochemical signs of hyperandrogenism; c) polycystic ovaries
with the exclusion of congenital adrenal hyperplasia androgen secreting tumour.
Coexistence of polycystic ovaries
and uterine fibroids and their combined effect on the uterine artery blood flow in relation to age and parity.
The clinical features include reproductive manifestations such as reduced frequency of ovulation, irregular menstrual cycles, reduced fertility, polycystic ovaries
on ultrasound, and high concentrations of male hormones such as testosterone which can lead to excess facial or body hair growth and acne.

We present a case of 22-year-old unmarried female who presented with hirsutism and on detailed evaluation she was diagnosed as a case of nonclassical adrenal hyperplasia and polycystic ovaries
