PCOS — Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

It is estimated that more than 1 in 10 women are afflicted with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), yet most people are uninformed about it and have no idea that such a condition exists. Women with PCOS experience a combination of symptoms that can lead to serious conditions such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and infertility. In fact, PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in women. There is no cure for PCOS; therefore it is a life-long condition, and people need to be informed about managing PCOS and all the symptoms associated with it.

The best way to manage PCOS is to mentally prepare ourselves for life-long behavioral changes and adjust our lives so that we are living the healthiest way possible. That is what the PCOS Challenge will do for us. The PCOS Challenge is a program that brings women with PCOS together to support each other in the difficult journey to turning our lives around and trying to reverse PCOS.
