Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common complex and heterogeneous disorder, affecting up to 10% women at reproductive age. It causes three fourth of the ovulatory infertility and PCOS patients often give poor IVF quality. Although some metabolic profiles have been investigated in PCOS patient sera and urine, the follicular fluid, providing fruitful biochemical information about oocyte environment during development has been ignored. In this work, based on NMR metabolomics approach, metabolic profile of follicular fluid of PCOS patients has been explored and compared with healthy controls. Significant increases of glycoprotein, acetate, cholesterol, significant decreases of lactic acid, glutamine, pyruvate, and alanine, have been discovered in PCOS follicular fluids. Furthermore, the Pearson correlations analysis indicated significant relationship existed between ART results and NMR detected follicular metabolites. All these results indicated that PCOS may induce dyslipidemia, low-grade inflammation, and disorder of glycolysis, pyruvate and amino acid metabolism in follicular fluids.
