While it’s not always the easiest or most comfortable subject to discuss,  it's essential to separate facts from myths for better understanding.

Let's talk about PCOS!
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that affects many aspects of health, from fertility to metabolism. It's real, and many women fact its many challenges.
Insulin resistance is a common feature of PCOS. Proper diet and exercise can help manage this aspect, promoting overall well-being.
PCOS symptoms can vary greatly depending on the individual. It's not a one-size-fits-all condition; which makes diagnosis and treatment unique to each person.
You can't have PCOS if you're thin. 
PCOS only affects fertility. The truth is that it can also lead to other health issues; like irregular periods, acne, and an increased risk of diabetes. 
FACT: A tailored approach is crucial for success living with PCOS, and for taking strides toward healing.
