September is PCOS Awareness Month
Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a prevalent and complex health issue among women but has really been a mystery disease. Affecting between 6 – 10% of women, it is considered one of the most common endocrine disorders among women – yet about half are undiagnosed. It affects so many areas of a woman’s life, including being the leading cause of infertility. Clearly PCOS needs all the attention it can get!
Here are some of my favorite PCOS websites:
PCOS Challenge – Sasha is one amazing woman – she’s creating so much awareness for PCOS by starting a 501c3 non-profit organization and has created a PCOS Symposium, Blog, Radio show, PCOS television series, forum and e-zine!
