Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age.The prevalence rates of PCOS depend on the diagnostic criteria used and the characteristics of the population sample, and in the general population of women of reproductive age, the prevalence of the syndrome ranges from 6-9% to 19.9% [1,2].According to modern criteria adopted by the consensus in Rotterdam, then systematically updated by ESHRE / ASRM (2014), the presence of two of the three criteria in a patient simultaneously allows to diagnose PCOS if other pathological conditions are excluded (thyroid pathology, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, adrenogenitalsyndrome, androgen-secreting tumors, Itsenko-Cushing syndrome).Modern international diagnostic criteria include the following signs: 1) signs of polycystic ovaries according to information from pelvic ultrasound investigation (the presence of more than 10 follicles in each ovary); 2) oligo-anovulation; 3) clinical (presence of hirsutism) or biochemical (increased androgen levels) development of ovarian hyperandrogenism [3, 4].
