A few years ago, we wrote a blog post about a book called Screaming to be Heard: Hormonal Connections Women Suspect, and Doctors Still Ignore by Elizabeth Vliet, MD. “It’s for those women that have repeatedly heard ‘it’s all in your head’ from their doctors,” wrote our blogger Gina, about her diagnosis with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), an endocrine disorder that can cause infertility and weight gain among other symptoms.
While doctors may not ignore it a much as they used to, there’s still enough murky medical advice out there about this condition to make the title ring true. At least one in ten women struggle with PCOS, but resources and answers for them are scarce.
After her diagnosis, Gina learned that she needed to rely on herself to feel better. But where can women go to learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes and practice implementing them? We have the answer.
This fall, as part of a partnership with inCYST Programs for Women with PCOS, we’re offering our first ever PCOS support program, LIVING WELL™ Learning to Thrive with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Join us
