Abstract: 
Background: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common reproductive disorder associated with many characteristic features, including hyperandrogenaemia, insulin resistance and obesity which may have significant implications for pregnancy outcomes and long-term health of the woman. It has an incidence ranging from 5 to 10%.
Materials and Methods: This study is conducted to evaluate the pregnancy and perinatal outcome in women with PCOS. Pregnancy outcomes in 208 women with PCOS and were compared with 240 normal women.
Results: Women with PCOS demonstrated a significantly higher risk of developing gestational diabetes (133 in PCOS groups vs.98 in normal group, p=0.00), pregnancy-induced hypertension and preeclampsia (67 in PCOS groups vs.21 in normal group, p=0.01) and preterm labor (22 in PCOS groups vs.14 in normal group p=0.01). Furthermore, women with PCOS seem to experience increased risk of cesarean delivery than normal group. There was no increased risk of congenital anomalies.
Conclusion: Women with PCOS are at increased risk of pregnancy complications. Pre-pregnancy, antenatal and intrapartum care should be aimed at reducing these risks.
