Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is among the most common endocrine disorders in women of reproductive age and has a strong genetic component. It is characterized by ovarian dysfunction and its clinical manifestations may include obesity, increased insulin resistance and compensatory hyper-insulinemia, oligo-/anovulation and infertility. Methods: This prospective study was conducted on 100 patients of PCOS both suspected as well as already diagnosed at department of obstetrics and gynecology at kailash cancer hospital and Research center, Goraj,Vadodara,Gujarat from 2012-2013. Diagnosis of PCOS was made by Rotterdam 2003 criteria. A detailed assessment was done and preformed proforma was filled. Estimation of serum vitamin D3 was done from all participants by chemiluminence method in central laboratory of our institute. Obtained data was analysed statistically by calculating p value and chi square test. Results: In this study, the prevalence of vitamin D3 deficiency in patients of PCOS was found to be 86% which is significant. Various parameters associated with PCOS like waist-hip ratio, obesity, AN of neck and hirsutism score showed positive significant correlation with vitamin D3 deficiency and physical activity of patients of PCOS showed negative correlation with the same. Conclusions: From Our study we would like to conclude that improvement of vitamin D3 levels at a younger age can contribute to prevention of PCOS. Each and Every patients of PCOS should be screened by measuring the level of serum vitamin D3.Correction of Vitamin D3 deficiency may prevents the complication of PCOS.
