- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Part 1 By : Keith Mallinson
Infertility is a common and often distressing problem affecting approximately 1 in 6 couples. Statistics confirm that the incidence of infertility is not actually increasing. More couples are, however, seeking help and advice as treatments become more readily available and effective. Having worked in the specialist area of infertility for fifteen years, I appreciate that many couples find a diagnosis of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) confusing and difficult to understand. I have therefore chosen to reflect on this particular cause of infertility in order to increase my own knowledge, thus enabling me to readily supply information and advice to women and their partners.
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Part 2 By : Keith Mallinson
Blood samples from women with PCOS show that gonadotrophin secretion is disordered resulting in increased plasma LH relative
to FSH levels. FSH peaks, which characterise ovulatory cycles, are absent and therefore pro-ovulatory follicular development
ceases. Thus the granulosa cells do not acquire a fully activated aromatase system and remain unresponsive to LH. Because
of this, healthy follicles in polycystic ovaries rarely develop beyond 5mm. Oestrogens are normally converted from androgens
in the presence of aromatase which is decreased when high levels of: H exists. In women with PCOS therefore, oestrogen
synthesis and production of oestradiol from granulosa cells is decreased and atresia of the follicle occurs. This atresia
causes a build up of secondary interstitial tissue and ovarian stroma. This disorder of gonadotrophin secretion causes
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Part 3 By : Keith Mallinson
A more aggressive regime to stimulate ovarian function is to administer exogenous human gonadotrophin combined with the use of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) to induce ovulation. This therapy may be used in conjunction with intra-uterine insemination of with IVF treatment. Both forms of treatment will require ultra-sound monitoring in order to assess follicular growth as ovarian hyper stimulation, and thus multiple ovulation, can occur. Treatment protocols for IVF vary from unit to unit but generally a period of ‘down regulation’ using gonadotrophin releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists are administered to prevent any release of LH from the pituitary. Endogenous FSH production is largely prevented by down regulation, so exogenous FSH is given to stimulate follicular growth and HCG, a protein similar to LH, is given to induce ovulation. Luteal support is essential as GnRH agonist therapy interferes with LH production and the corpus luteum will not function effectively
