Learning About PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)

If you're the mother of a daughter, you probably have a few things in common. Maybe she has your smile. Or your chin. Or even you stubborness.

You may have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). You may not. If you do, there's a larger possibility that she has or will develop it as she grows older.

If you have a daughter that is showing symptoms or has been diagnosed with PCOS, learn more about it with experts from RMACT. They are specialists who are committed to knowing all the basic facts as well as the newest and most up-to-date research, data and treatment possibilities.
