A podcast on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) has been highly requested. And it obvious why. PCOS is one of the most common female reproductive disorder.
PCOS really has come about due to our lifestyles now. We are now living in a world where those who are susceptible to developing PCOS are more likely to turn on the genes that could trigger their PCOS.
The biggest takeaway though is that it doesn’t have to be life sentence. If you think you may have PCOS or you have been diagnosed with PCOS then this episode is for you
In this chat I talk about
What is PCOS?
- Common symptoms of PCOS
- How PCOS is diagnosed
- The conventional medical treatment of PCOS
- The four types of PCOS
If you would like a deeper understanding of your period I highly recommend getting your hands on the Unique Timing Tracker – it will be your super power!
I would also suggest listening to The Female Cycle 101 episode before diving into this one.
Listen To The Episode
If listening to Find Your Hum has left you… well… humming! I’d be super grateful if you could leave a review.
I promise you it’s super quick, easy and you literally only have to right a sentence. Of course even more love will be coming your way if you say nice things.
Quotes that made me hum…
PCOS is quite complex – its certainly not just one thing. It’s also not a disease… PCOS is a cluster of symptoms that relate to women experiencing inconsistent ovulation and high levels of androgens…
The primary symptom is the failure to ovulate or irregular ovulation. This failure to ovulate causes deficiency in estradiol a form of oestrogen and progesterone and high levels of testosterone.
There are 4 main underlying drivers of PCOS and they are insulin resistance, inflammation, adrenals over producing androgens and coming off the pill.
Whilst the syndrome is complicated the ways to address and correct symptoms are absolutely achievable. And remember this does not have to be a life sentence – you can get yourself to a position where you no longer meet the criteria for PCOS.
