The Possible Relation Between Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Can PCOS be prevented?

PCOS is a common endocrine disorder in women of childbearing age. Though the cause is still unclear, it is thought that there may be a genetic component to the disease, meaning that it may be passed down through family. It is important for women to practice regular preventative checkups at the gynecologist. Recognizing the early development of PCOS can lead to better management of the disease. Ultimately, when PCOS is controlled, the prevalence of OSA is lessened.
