It’s Not All In Your Head: How To Advocate For Yourself With PCOS From First Period To Last Period

    • Health & Fitness

Polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, affects an estimated 8-13% of reproductive-aged women, according to the ⁠World Health Organization (WHO)⁠. PCOS can cause hormonal imbalances, irregular periods, excess androgen levels, and cysts in the ovaries. It's also one of the leading causes of female infertility. Still, up to 70% of affected women remain undiagnosed worldwide. This needs to change. In this episode of From First Period To Last Period, Rescripted Co-Founder Kristyn Hodgdon sits down with Dr. Shannon Alexa of Main Line Fertility in Pennsylvania to discuss the signs & symptoms of PCOS and how to advocate for yourself with the condition — because 96-day menstrual cycles are not normal. Brought to you by Rescripted and Inception Fertility.
