Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age. Two main diagnostic criteria are used for PCOS: the Rotterdam and Androgen Excess Society (AES) criteria. Depending on which criteria is used, the diagnosis of PCOS may change. Therefore, our study investigates the discrepancies in the diagnosis of PCOS when using the Rotterdam versus the AES scale in the Beaumont Health System. This is clinically significant because a PCOS diagnosis should not be made lightly as it can come with many lifelong social, emotional, and medical implications.
