Abstract

Background: Prevalence of Metabolic syndrome is increasing rapidly among the infertile women over the last few years Objective: to evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MBS) among the infertile women. Methods: A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted of all infertile women in a tertiary care centre in southern India. These women underwent screening for MBS according to the modified AHA/NHLBI (ATP III 2005) definition. These women were categorized as PCOS and Non PCOS based on Rotterdam criteria (2003). Results: Among 1030 infertile women. The prevalence of MBS among the infertile women was 35.3% and among PCOS and Non PCOS women were 44.7% and 28.9% respectively. Conclusions: The prevalence of MBS among infertile women was 35.3%. It is showing an upward trend among infertile PCOS and Non PCOS women. So early screening for MBS can reduce the long term sequale.
