A study was carried out to evaluate the correlation of infertility with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOs) and weight in specific female population of Karach. One hundred infertile women under the age of 42, were tested for polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOs). Different physiological factors (systolic and diastolic blood pressure) associated with infertility were also assessed. It is attributed by the study that 43% of the subjects had PCOs among 100 infertile females. The study revealed that in PCOs positive subjects 48.83% of the cases were obese. Obesity and Polycystic ovarian syndrome were significantly correlated with infertility (P = 0.01) by statistical analysis of the data. The study shows many perspectives for future research.
