496. Ask Dr. G: Infertility, Heart Attacks, and the PCOS Puzzle

By Commune

Welcome to the third episode of Ask Dr. G, a series where we get Dr. Sara Gottfried to answer questions from you, our Commune Community. Dr. G is a Harvard-educated physician, researcher, and educator.

In our third episode, Jeff asks Dr. G to break down PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a hormonal disorder that is a leading cause of infertility worldwide. About 8–13% of reproductive-aged women suffer from this condition, but up to 70% remain undiagnosed. Dr. G discusses the potential origins of PCOS and shares valuable insights into available treatments.
