    Abstract

    Introduction: The prevalence of obesity in women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is 50%. Weight loss is effective at enhancing insulin sensitivity, reducing hyperandrogenaemia, hirsutism and restoring menstrual regularity and fertility. However, women with PCOS appear to be less responsive to weight loss interventions. The aim of this study was to compare weight loss outcomes of bariatric surgery in women with and without PCOS.
