PCOS & Bariatric Surgery

Posted by Lauren A Morris on May 12, 2017 at 11:28am 10 Comments

I have done a lot of research over the last year about Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Bariatric Surgery. From what I understand, it does relieve a great deal of symptoms in cases of morbid obesity and can restore fertility in otherwise infertile patients. It is not a cure…

PCOS Awareness 10-for10 Campaign

History has been made! On December 21, 2017, the U.S. Senate passed S.Res.336 by unanimous consent. Thank you to everyone for writing to your Senators and Representatives asking for their support of S.Res.336 and H.Res.495. This is the first time there has been a central focus on PCOS in the U.S. Congress and we are pleased that the U.S. Senate has taken the first step to recognize the seriousness of PCOS and officially designate September as PCOS Awareness Month.
PCOS Challenge: The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association is leading this advocacy effort with the support of our advisors, advocates and over 70 national and international health organizations who understand that PCOS needs attention now. We will continue to work hard to increase focus on research and research funding; increase PCOS education in the general public and the healthcare community; as well as support options and resources for those affected by polycystic ovary syndrome.
This is only the beginning! There is significant and growing interest in PCOS in Congress. A number of members in the U.S. House and Senate have expressed interest in working on subsequent legislation around PCOS. For more information and to get involved, visit: PCOSChallenge.org/resolution
During Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Awareness Month in September, PCOS Challenge: The National Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Association and Omega Phi Alpha National Service Sorority held PCOS Awareness Weekend 2017 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The weekend’s events included the fifth annual Atlanta PCOS Awareness Symposium and the ninth annual Bolt for PCOS 5K Run Walk.

Welcome to PCOS Challenge

PCOS — Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) affects up to 15% of women, yet most people are uninformed about the condition. PCOS is a genetic, hormonal, metabolic and reproductive disorder that can lead to obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, infertility and endometrial cancer. PCOS is the leading cause of infertility and the most common endocrine disorder in younger 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.
