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.

In an effort to help spread the word and provide accurate information, Fertility Authority features an entire channel on the topic of PCOS.

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.

Watch as Dr. Erica Johnstone of Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine answers: Can I Get Pregnant if I have PCOS?
