Although polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is arguably the commonest endocrine condition, affecting 7% of women, medical students and junior doctors often find it difficult to grasp its pathophysiology. This workshop describes a paradigm to teach about PCOS and uses this framework to describe lifestyle, hormonal and metabolic strategies for the regulation of periods and optimisation of fertility.
