Bisphenol A belongs to a group of environmental pollutants, called endocrine disruptors, whose relationship with various health disorders is becoming increasingly evident. One of these disorders is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This narrative review attempts to define key aspects of both bisphenol A and PCOS, as well as to consolidate the current knowledge about them with the aim to establish a solid basis for their relationship and implication in health. Different studies point out a possible relationship not only between PCOS and exposure to bisphenol A, but also to other diseases that are more prevalent in women with this syndrome, such as disorders in hormone regulation or metabolism. It is necessary, however, to deepen the knowledge about the relationship between bisphenol A and PCOS in order to provide more evidence. To this effect, it would be interesting to develop different epidemiological studies focused on strengthening and reaffirming the potential causal association.

Keywords: bisphenol A, polycystic ovary syndrome, PCOS, endocrine disruptor, reproductive health.
