Event Details

September is PCOS Awareness Month. Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS,, is one of the most common ovulatory disorders, accounting for 85 percent of ovulatory disorder diagnoses. While the exact causes of PCOS are unclear, the effects of PCOS on your body and a woman’s fertility are well-documented. Women with PCOS create a higher than average level of androgens.  Androgens are normally present in both sexes, but typically are considered “male hormones.”  Elevated androgen levels in women will affect the development of eggs and interfere with ovulation. For this reason, women with PCOS may not ovulate regularly, or at all.
