Overview

Living with PCOS: Polycystic Ovary Syndrome by Angela Boss, Evelina Weidman Sterling

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, under diagnosed endocrine disorder and leads women to treatment that can rid them of troublesome symptoms.

The authors-both of whom have PCOS- and a physician who specializes in treating the syndrome cover such topics as:

Causes of PCOS

Symptoms of PCOS

Choosing a physician

Getting a diagnosis

Medical treatments

Infertility and getting pregnant

Coping with the emotional impact of PCOS
