Brief Summary:

The first aim of the investigators study, was to investigate the combined effect of diet,physical exercise and orlistat, for 24 weeks, on serum Anti-Müllerian Hormone (AMH) levels in obese women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and in obese controls.

The other aim of the investigators study, was to examine the effect of hypocaloric diet,physical exercise plus sibutramine on serum AMH levels, body composition, hormonal and metabolic parameters in overweight and obese patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
