What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome? How is it Related to Vaccines?
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is when a woman’s body develops too much androgen (a male hormone), leading to ovulation and menstruation probelms. PCOS often causes cysts to develop around the eggs in the ovaries, and is one of the leading causes of female infertility.
Patients and doctors have reported cases of polycystic ovary syndrome after getting a vaccine.
These reports are collected into a database called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The VAERS database tracks reports of side-effects following US-approved vaccines. The database is managed by the FDA and CDC.
Patients who developed polycystic ovary syndrome after a vaccine may be entitled to compensation from the federal vaccine injury compensation program. The attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. have won more than $300-million dollars in compensation for people injured by vaccines in the past 3 years alone.
Which Vaccines are Linked to Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
Vaccines normally protect us by activating the immune system. However, sometimes a vaccine can trigger the side effects like polycystic ovary syndrome. Vaccines linked to PCOS are:
- Hepatitis A

Diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) After a Vaccine?
Symptoms of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Symptoms of PCOS emerge around the time of a woman’s first menstrual period. If a woman experiences rapid weight gain later on in life, this is also a possible trigger of PCOS. Symptoms include:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Infrequent periods (less than 8-9 per year) or very frequent periods (with 21 days or less in between periods)
- Abnormally heavy periods
- Facial acne
- Chest acne
- Hair loss that mimics male patterns of baldness
- Back acne
- Skin discoloration
- Weight gain
- Inability to lose weight
- Skin tags around the armpits or neck
- Polycystic ovaries
- Hirsutism: a condition where women develop too much hair on the face, neck, chin, chest or other areas where men tend to have more hair.
What Complications are Caused by Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?
Polycystic ovary syndrome leads to a variety of very serious complications. These include:
- Premature birth
- Endometrial cancer
- Sleep apnea
- Eating disorders
- Type 2 diabetes
- Steatohepatitis: a condition where fat accumulates in the liver, causing inflammation
- Metabolic Syndrome
Only women get polycystic ovary syndrome, and PCOS only affects women of childbearing ages.
Risk factors that increase your likelihood of developing PCOS include obesity or a family history of PCOS among any of the women in your family (particularly a mother, sister, or aunt).
