PCOS Update: What we’ve learned

Time-frame: 75-90
CERP: yes

PCOS is frequently characterized by hyperandrogenism. Over the past few years, research has begun to focus on androgen imbalances and their impact from fetal development through the life cycle. These studies, together with accumulating clinical experience, are shedding light on what may be inhibiting milk production for a subset of PCOS mother. This session looks at the the role of androgens in the breast and lactation with an eye to specific treatment strategies.

PCOS in specific is discussed, but the application can extend to androgen conditions beyond PCOS.
