POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME (PCOS) is a complex endocrine condition characterised by high androgen levels –  responsible for hair growth on the face, stomach or back, irregular or no menstrual cycle and insulin resistance.

Whether you are 16 or 36 when diagnosed, seek help from a Fertility Trained Dietician. This can help you manage your symptoms (acne, resistance to weight loss, depression, anxiety, liver conditions, unwanted hair growth and an irregular cycle) and help increase your chances to conceive naturally.

Although the contraceptive pill can alleviate symptoms, it does NOT resolve the underlying cause-which is insulin resistance.

Most PCOS patients are overweight, but a smaller percentage of women are normal or underweight. Regardless of your BMI, diet is a pivotal part of your treatment plan if you have PCOS.
