It's September again

And that means it's PCOS awareness month!

Polycystic ovary syndrome is a problem in which a woman’s hormones are unbalanced and their ovaries have multiple cysts on them. It can cause problems with your periods and make it difficult to get pregnant. PCOS may also cause unwanted changes in the way you look. Acne, facial hair, obesity can all occur for people with PCOS. If it is not treated, over time it can lead to serious health problems, such as diabetes, ovarian cancer, and heart disease.
PCOS is common, affecting as many as 1 out of 15 women. Often the symptoms begin in the teen years. Treatment can help control the symptoms and prevent long-term problems.

Help get the word out there and support awarness and research for the cure!

There are a few websites out there for support, make sure to check them out.
