Women who have PCOS often have a number of presumably unrelated symptoms, including abnormal bleeding, infertility, obesity, excess hair growth, hair loss and acne. The condition appears to have a genetic component and those affected often have both male and female relatives with adult-onset diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and female relatives with infertility, excess hair growth and menstrual problems.
The diagnosis of PCOS can be overwhelming and confusing for many women. In an effort to increase PCOS awareness, and in honor of PCOS awareness month, a complimentary symposium will be offered to the community so to can gain more insight to this often under-diagnosed condition. Learn more about your latest options, from diagnosis to treatment methods. Nutrition, medication and exercise will be discussed as well as online and offline support networks.
