Correctly diagnosing and treating PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) can mean achieving a pregnancy, if that is your goal.
As PCOS is a lifelong condition, with serious health implications, it's important to be managing this syndrome even if you are not attempting to become pregnant.

If you suspect that you may have PCOS, ask your doctor to check to see if you meet the criteria.
Diagnosis and treatment of PCOS is likely to mean changes for you- changes for the better.
