This is the first part in a multi-part series on PCOS. I care for many women with PCOS and they’ve told me that they can’t find information that’s easily understood available.
Finding out that you have PCOS can be overwhelming. I’ll be posting multiple articles on how to understand what’s going on, what you may notice and why. I’ll also cover weight loss strategies, fertility and how to combat acne and hair growth. (more…)
This is the 2nd post in my series on PCOS. Here’s the link for Part 1.
Most women with PCOS, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, see a health care provider for a few common reasons. Either they aren’t having periods, their periods come infrequently, or they have heavy bleeding.
We used to think that the biggest issue with PCOS was the multiple cysts within each ovary, which prevented ovulation, normal periods and caused infertility. We now know that PCOS is a complicated endocrine condition with multiple challenges for women.
If you’ve just been diagnosed, let me first say that it’s completely normal to feel completely overwhelmed right now. I’ll try to provide you with the same information that I give my patients so that you can be your healthiest.
