Did You Know that September is PCOS Awareness Month?
PCOS, or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, affects 8% to 10% of women, and is a major cause of infertility. Perhaps you tend to retain weight in the stomach region and have difficulty shedding pounds. You may also experience irregular periods, thinning hair, excess facial hair, or acne, but mistakenly dismiss it as nothing.
Education is vital to improving the lives of women who are unaware that they have PCOS. The good news is that these risks and problems can be reduced and possibly eliminated with proper treatment and the help of a good fertility doctor.
