Abstract For decades, infertility and metabolic health challenges have been the main concerns for women diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Poorer pregnancy outcomes and obstetric complications have only recently been recognized as concerns for women with PCOS. Women diagnosed with PCOS are more often overweight and obese, and the prevalence of pregnancy complications in PCOS is influenced by several co-factors such as BMI, co-morbidities, and ethnicity. The most frequently reported...

Summary Background Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have an increased risk of pregnancy complications. Epi-analysis of two previous randomised controlled trials that compared metformin with placebo during pregnancy in women with PCOS showed a significant reduction in late miscarriages and preterm births in the metformin group. The aim of this third randomised trial (PregMet2) was to test the hypothesis that metformin prevents late miscarriage and preterm birth in women with PCOS. Meth...

Context: Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have increased risk of preterm delivery. Shortening of the cervix is a sign of preterm delivery. Objective: This study aimed to investigate potential effect of metformin on cervical length and whether androgen levels correlate with cervical length in PCOS pregnancies. Design and Setting: This was a sub-study of a randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter study (The PregMet study) performed at 11 secondary or tertiary centers from 2005 to 200...
