Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): The Myths and the Facts

May 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women between the ages of 15-45. Women of all races and ethnicities can be at risk and you might have symptoms for a long time before it is accurately diagnosed.

Many symptoms result from imbalances in hormones that occur naturally in the body and include:

• Irregular menstrual periods
• Excessive hair growth
• Cystic acne

Left untreated, PCOS can lead to:
• Higher risk of infertility
• Pregnancy complications
• Depression and anxiety
• Obesity
• Diabetes and heart disease
• Endometrial cancer

Sign up today for our free talk and join Laura Cooney, MD, to learn the causes, diagnosis and treatment of PCOS.
