Abstract

The management of anovulatory infertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has evolved significantly over the last 60 years. PCOS is now known to be a heterogeneous collection of endocrine disturbances often involving hyperandrogenism and insulin resistance. Treatments have become more sophisticated and should target specific endocrinopathies. A comprehensive approach toward inducing ovulation in these patients must take into consideration the complexities of the disease and the risks and benefits of a range of approaches. In this article, a historical perspective of the disease is presented and a variety of methodologies used to safely induce ovulation in patients with PCOS is discussed.
