Welcome to PCOS Challenge

PCOS — Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic Ovary 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.
