A young woman – who was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and told she may never conceive — has given birth to her first child after participating in a ground-breaking fertility study spearheaded by Ulster University.

Charlotte Johnson (29), who lives in London, signed up to the Bariatric Surgery for Spontaneous Ovulation in Women Living with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (BAMBINI) trial led by Professor Alex Miras, at the endocrinology department at the Ulster University School of Medicine which ran between 2019 to last year.
