Shady Grove Fertility, the nation’s largest fertility center with more babies born than any other center in the United States, is expanding its resources for patients with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and reminding women with PCOS that a healthy pregnancy is very possible.
Isaac E.

Sasson goes on to explain, “The challenge for women with PCOS is that all of [their] follicles stay small, they never make a big one that can be released.
