Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a widespread endocrine health issue in women. The purpose of this study is to help women who are suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome to be aware of the effects and efficacy of the different medications on their body and how these affect their quality of life. The researchers gathered some information on respondents’ marital status, pre-diagnosis symptoms experience, medications used in managing the syndrome, the frequency level of symptoms experienced, the different side effects that manifested, the perceived level of effectiveness, and the level of management of symptoms regarding PCOS medication. The researchers utilized a mixture of quantitative and qualitative method approaches in the form of survey questionnaires and conducted the online survey in January 2021. Out of 30 respondents, 24 or 80 percent were single and 6 or 20 percent were married. On pre-diagnosis, the majority said that they had irregular menstruation. On medications used, many were using oral contraceptive pills in managing PCOS. The mean score of the respondents experiencing side effects was 3.10, which had a verbal interpretation of “sometimes experiencing side effects”. On the side effects manifested related to PCOS medication, many said that they gained weight. More than half of the respondents also said their medication was effective in managing PCOS. Most of them were not cutting back on any activity despite having PCOS. In conclusion, a greater number of the respondents said they were able to manage PCOS oftentimes.

Keywords: Polycystic ovarian syndrome, Hyperandrogenism, Pre-diagnosis, Quality of Life, Contraceptive Pills, Irregular Menstruation.
