According to a new SPHPM study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, nearly two in three women were dissatisfied with the length of time they waited and the number of healthcare professionals they had to see before they received a diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Nearly half of the 1,385 women surveyed saw three or more healthcare providers before they were diagnosed and the diagnostic process took more than two years for a third of the survey respondents.
