Living With PCOS
Are You Seeking Relief from PCOS Symptoms?
If so, you join the estimated 10 million American women who have PCOS—polycystic ovary syndrome. If you’re like most of these women, you may not know a lot about the hormone disorder, but you’re probably painfully aware of its symptoms: irregular menstrual cycles, excess facial and body hair, weight gain, and adult acne. PCOS is also a leading cause of infertility. If left untreated, the condition carries long-term risks for endometrial cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. However, with proper treatment, the syndrome can be managed.
Living with PCOS sheds light on this underreported, underdiagnosed endocrine disorder and leads women to treatment that can rid them of troublesome symptoms. The authors, both of whom have PCOS, along with a nationally-recognized physician, cover such topics as:
• Causes of PCOS
• Overcoming symptoms
• Choosing a physician
• Getting a diagnosis
• Receiving the best medical treatment
• Infertility and getting pregnant
• Coping with the emotional impact of PCOS
This book is a reader-friendly tool for gaining control over PCOS.
