Abstract :

Four sub phenotypes of polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have emerged after the definition of the syndrome according to a joint ASRM/ESHRE consensus meeting, in Rotterdam, 2003. Many pitfalls have resulted after this consensus, like the heterogeneity of the sub phenotypes groups which lead to controversy and debate of the results of any comparative studies. Also this consensus has neglected the role of insulin resistance, although PCOS is now recognized as an important metabolic and reproductive disorder .On the other hand this classification cannot solve the problem of cases having PCO in the absence of anovulation or hyperandrogenism (��?asymptomatic PCO��?), where these cases not considered as having PCOS. The use of Rotterdam diagnostic criteria in the studies of PCOS has ended the debate between ASRM/ESHRE groups from the political point of view, but we are still in need of a practical not a political classification, so we tried to introduce a proposal of a novel practical classification of PCOS to minimize the previous pitfalls.
