The study focused on anthropometric measurements and their relationship with the increase in the incidence of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women, where 61 samples were collected for women with the syndrome and 45 samples as a control group. The results showed that the body mass index (BMI) of the affected women group was higher than the control group at (p=0.05), the waist-hip ratio (WHR) of the affected women was higher than the control group at (p=0.003), and age was a major factor affecting On the levels of female hormones(estrogen and progesterone hormones), elderly women are usually more likely to develop Polycystic ovarian syndrome due to the increase in obesity around the abdominal area and the effect on the ovulation process with age.
Finally, the study proved that Body mass index and Waist to Hips ratio are two new markers of increased risk factors for PCOS in women of different ages.
