PCOS & Bariatric Surgery

Posted by Lauren A Morris on May 12, 2017 at 11:28am 13 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…

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.

PCOS Awareness month and Update

PCOS is something that I have dealt with for over 10 years. It doesn't get easier but having amazing support and more awareness makes it better. I am so grateful for PCOS challenge helping make us cysters heard. This year awareness has been bigger than before, we have gone to Capitol Hill and we have lit landmarks in teal for PCOS! I was planning on being a virtual walker this year but, due to a bad knee injury I won't be able to participate. I just wanted to remind everyone to keep fighting…See More
