Currently, the criterion used to diagnose the condition of PCOS is the same in women of all reproductive age group, which should not be the case. As teenage symptoms like irregular periods, acne and appearance of polycystic ovaries are commonly present in all adolescent girls after puberty, it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis. Hence it will be better to wait for few years rather than making a hasty diagnosis of the teenage girls. The presence of metabolic syndrome should be targeted in the screening of these girls, who are suspected to have PCOS.
