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.
PCOS Challenge, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are one of the largest and most active support organizations for women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome worldwide. We touch the lives of women with PCOS and their supporters each year through cable television and radio programming, online and offline support groups, and education and awareness initiatives. Since our programs began in 2009, we've helped many women find answers that helped them overcome their struggles with infertility, weight gain, anxiety and depression and reduce their risk for life-threatening related conditions.

There are someday where I am tired and think why me, why do I have to deal with this and why was I left in the dark for so long. Other days (which is for the most part) I have to push myself to not think that way and remember that I have worked hard to be where I am and continue to do so because I am not done and have a whole life to continue.
