PCOS Awareness Month

Hello friends
 
My lovely polish friend Nory has organized today's posts to bring awareness to PCOS.  PCOS is short for Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.  PCOS is one of the most common female endocrine disorders. 
 
I suffer from PCOS.  I was diagnosed 12 years ago after displaying a few key symptoms.  There are some pretty hard to deal with symptoms of PCOS:
 
-significant weight gain
-facial hair increase
-loss of hair on head
-blood sugar problems
-insulin intolerance
-infertility
-ovarian cysts
-excessive blood loss
-irregular or extreme periods
-anxiety and/or depression
-acne
 
 





Nory has put together a few links for more information on PCOS:
