Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a complex hormonal disorder which is characterized by a variety of symptoms like ovarian cysts, menstrual cycle irregularities and infertility. It is one of the most common hormonal disorders in women and many women are not aware they have PCOS, which can lead to serious complications beyond infertility and menstrual problems like chronic obesity, heart disease, diabetes, thyroid disorder and ovarian cancer. PCOS needs to be better understood by women to help resolve infertility issues and to improve general health and longevity. This book provides the information all women need to know about the cause and process of PCOS, and sets out a plan to prevent this condition and treat it effectively.
