Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition which affects how a woman's ovary works. It is commonly associated with symptoms like infertility, weight gain, acne and excess body hair. You can be in better control of it, if you have a more thorough understanding of the condition and know exactly how to manage it well.
Below is a review of a PCOS focused website, which is mainly directed towards providing educational support for healthcare professionals. It's just as important for our health professionals to understand this condition just as well as us, since they are the one's who'll be responsible for leading us in the right direction throughout our PCOS treatment journey.
We have picked out a few of our favourite sections from the website, which we thought would be a great read for you.
Our favorite section one - About PCOS
We like this section in particular as it gives a detailed account of what PCOS is all about. This section also gives us information about the various symptoms that are linked with PCOS and the long term health risks there are for women with PCOS, worth reading more about.
Our favourite section two - PCOS related events
This section also stood out for us, because it gives us information on the range of useful upcoming PCOS related events that are taking place. As you can see from the image above, a detailed overview of the agenda of the event is highlighted for each, along with information about the main speakers that will be involved and details of where the events will be held.
Our favourite section three - PCOS news
The above section focuses on the latest news and updates from the PCOS and Verity Group. It gives readers a list of PCOS based conferences that will take place for both Health Care Professionals and PCOS patients. We are also encouraged to participate in a range of activities during PCOS awareness week that is run every year.
As you may have gathered by now, PCOS is a complicated condition, which usually requires you to carry out extra research, if you want to understand it better. You can also speak to an experienced dermatologist, if you want to learn more about the various treatments that are available for you to try out, such as laser hair removal or laser acne treatment.
