Overview

Are You Seeking Relief from PCOS Symptoms?  

 

If so, you join the estimated 10 million American women who have PCOS—polycystic ovary syndrome.  If you’re like most of these women, you may not know a lot about the hormone disorder, but you’re probably painfully aware of its symptoms:  irregular menstrual cycles, excess facial and body hair, weight gain, and adult acne.  PCOS is also a leading cause of infertility. If left untreated, the condition carries long-term risks for endometrial cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. However, with proper  treatment, the syndrome can be managed. 

 

Living with PCOS sheds light on this underreported, underdiagnosed endocrine disorder and leads women to treatment that can rid them of troublesome symptoms.  The authors, both of whom have PCOS, along with a nationally-recognized physician, cover such topics as:
 
            •  Causes of PCOS
            •  Overcoming symptoms
            •  Choosing a physician
            •  Getting a diagnosis
            •  Receiving the best medical treatment
            •  Infertility and getting pregnant
            • Coping with the emotional impact of PCOS


This book is a reader-friendly tool for gaining control over PCOS.

Editorial Reviews

Jane Brody
Contains inspring stories from affected women and information about diagnosis and treatment.
New York Times
Library Journal
Polycystic Ovary Syndrom (PCOS), named after the cysts that may form in the ovaries, is a hormone disorder that causes irregular menstrual cycles, obesity, and infertility, among other symptoms. If untreated, it can lead to heart disease, diabetes, and uterine cancer. This is a book about and by PCOS women (coauthors Boss and Sterling both have it; physician Legro is an expert on the syndrome), which is evident in their easy-to-understand descriptions of the disorder, its symptoms, medical diagnosis, and treatments (including alternative methods) as well as the emotional impact. Colette Harris's PCOS: A Woman's Guide to Dealing with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (LJ 8/00) is a more difficult read (more medical jargon with a more British slant) but does offer a four-point management plan to combat the disorder. Both volumes are valuable to any women's health collection, but Boss and Sterling's is preferable to an American audience with its easy-to-read format, separate chapter on infertility, and important references to national organizations like Resolve.

    Excellent book for people with PCOS!

    This book was very informative. I like many others did lots of research on the internet. However this book summed it all up. It is easy reading. I read it in two days. There are some medical terms and photographs too but you don't feel like you are reading a medical journal or anything. For those interested in natural remedies there is a chapter on that also, which I haven't seen anywhere else. I would give this book a try if you are interested in PCOS. I highly recommend this book!

    EXCELLENT! Very informative and helpful!

    This book was a heavensent. It went into just enough detail and gave enough lab values and information without giving a medical course. Highly recommend for anyone suspecting they have this syndrome.
