Brief Summary:
This study will assess the potential impact of Elagolix on disordered pituitary and ovarian hormones in women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Drug: Elagolix Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 2, multicenter, double-blind (sponsor-unblinded), randomized, placebo-controlled study to assess the safety and efficacy of Elagolix in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women of reproductive age, yet few treatment options are available. This study will help determine if Elagolix can impact disordered hormonal dynamics in women with PCOS and at what dosage.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Menstrual Cycle Responders [ Time Frame: Week 0 (Baseline) to Week 24 ]
    Menstrual cycle improvement will be assessed by the participant's e-diary.
