The evolving understanding about polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has led to the addition of phenotypes to the classification. Phenotypic classification allows for the identification of subgroups that may have specific clinical and biochemical characteristics. Using the phenotype classification in research will allow for a deeper understanding of the pathogenesis and help with more personalized clinical care.
