Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the effect on fertility of ultrasonically diagnosed polycystic ovaries in asymptomatic women with normal basal hormonal profile. Design: Case - control Study. Stetting: Samir Abbas Medical Center. Patient(s): Women with ultrasound appearance of polycystic ovaries and women with normal ovaries. Intervention(s): Three dimensional ultrasound to evaluate ovarian volume and morphological features of polycystic ovaries. Main outcome Measure (s): Time to pregnancy (TTP) of both groups. Results: The TTP of women with polycystic ovaries was not significantly longer and they were not more likely to be subfertile than women with normal ovaries (6.7±3.2 versus 8.1±3.3 years respectively). Conclusion: Without symptoms or endocrine disturbances of polycystic ovarian syndrome, polycystic ovarian appearance has shown not to have significant detrimental effect on fertility. Appearances alone are not indicative of the clinical or endocrine features associated with the syndrome, and additional diagnostic criteria should be considered
