Brief Summary:
Women with PCOS have been observed to be potential diabetics.Recently,American Diabetes Association has suggested screening of women with PCOS for HbA1C.

Condition or disease
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Pelvic Endometriosis Insulin Resistance Non-insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus Tubal Obstruction

Detailed Description:

In view of recent suggestion of American Diabetes Association(ADA)to screen women with PCOS for HbA1C,we intend to study its prevalence in all categories of obesity in women with PCOS.

Women with PCOS by Rotterdam criteria will be screened for insulin resistance by using different techniques or tests.

Further, the sensitivity and specificity of HbA1C will be compared with sensitivity and specificity of other insulin resistance markers such as OGTT, Free androgen index, free testosterone, fasting insulin to glucose ratio, HOMA-IR and HOMA-B-CELL.

Study Type : Observational

Study Arm
This group/cohort will have subjects having infertility due to PCOS (as per Rotterdam criteria)
Control arm
This group/cohort will have subjects without PCOS but with any other diagnosis of infertility or any other complain.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of HbA1C in both arms of the cohort of subjects [ Time Frame: September 2013 ]
    HbA1C has been suggested as a potential marker for NIDDM in subjects with PCOS
