Studying the Effect of LeutiniZing Hormone and Follicular Stimulating Hormone on Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome in Married and in Non-married Women


Abstract:Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder in female duringreproductive age. The aim of this study was to find out the correlation between LH, FSHhormone and LH: FSH ratio and polycystic ovary syndrome .The present study included 50 patients of polycystic ovary syndrome (25 married inage group ranged between 20-45 years and 25 unmarried women with age ranged between 15-18years) and a control group comprising of 30 women (15 married & 15 unmarried) in thesame age. Blood samples were aspirated from individual from 2nd – 5th day menstrual cycle(early follicular phase) for those of normal cycle while for patients with Polycystic ovarysyndrome blood sample were collected regardless to the duration of the cycle to measureFSH, LH, and LH:FSH ratio by using ELISA methodsThe results of this study showed the mean levels of LH and LH/FSH ratio significantlyelevated in PCOS groups compared with normal groups in both married and unmarriedwomen. We suggested that changes in the LH level and LH: FSH ratio has a role in polycysticovarian syndrome.
