According to a recent analysis from the British Medical Journal, the current reliance on the Rotterdam criteria to diagnose PCOS has led to over diagnosis, over treatment, and unnecessary distress for patients. In this presentation, Briden will invite you to look beyond the sometimes misleading diagnosis of PCOS and instead to look at your patient and the individual factors driving her anovulation and androgen excess.Briden will describe several “types” of PCOS according to the underlying driving factors that she has observed with her patients, providing you with clinical protocols to treat each one. She will also aim to debunk the widespread misconception that PCOS can be diagnosed by ultrasound or an anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) blood test.
