What to Do When the Doctor Says It's PCOS: Put an End to Irregular Cycles, Infertility, Weight Gain, Acne, and Unsightly Hair Growthby Milton Hammerly, Cheryl Kimball
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is the number one cause of irregular periods and infertility in women - yet most gynecologists fail to diagnose it. The disorder causes irregular cycles, infertility, weight gain, acne, and unsightly hair growth -- symptoms that can ultimately prove life-threatening as well as uncomfortable, humiliating, and emotionally disruptive.
Only recently have women realized the danger lurking in what they thought were stress-induced problems. While researchers haven't determined the cause of PCOS, they know it is linked to insulin resistance, which can be controlled fairly easily with a low-carb diet.
Most PCOS cases are diagnosed by reproductive endocrinologists when a woman's infertility has led her to seek a specialist. WHAT TO DO WHEN THE DOCTOR SAYS IT'S PCOS gives sufferers a diet and nutritional treatment program that goes beyond the usual regimen of birth control pills and fertility drugs. The millions of women victimized by this debilitating and demoralizing disorder will undoubtedly welcome this new program as an alternative or as a supplement to their current treatment plan.

This book has it all!!! If you want a strong grasp of PCOS in order to visit your doctor and know what to ask about, this book is it. It covers the history of PCOS, how the syndrome is diagnosed, how it affects your reproductive system because of it's chemical effects on your endocrine system. The book explains all medications for every symptom of PCOS as well as alternative/holistic approaches. It has a chapter dedicated to diet and lifestyle as well as a huge amount of information on infertility. I researched other book reviews and initially wasn't going to purchase this book. However, the others were out of stock and I wanted something quick to educate myself before my follow up visit. The other books being out of stock was a blessing in disguise : )
This book was very informative but the author rambled a lot.
This book is very informative and life changing. I thought I already knew a lot about PCOS before I read this book, but I definitely learned some things I didn't know. I would recommend this book to anyone who has been diagnosed with PCOS.
