Description - What to Do When the Doctor Says it's PCOS by Milton Hammerly

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is the number one cause of irregular periods and infertility in women. It affects 10 per cent of women worldwide. PCOS is a condition of overproduction of androgens by the ovaries. In essence, the ovaries produce too much testosterone, causing abnormal hair growth, irregular or absent menstruation/ovulation, acne and small benign cysts on the ovaries. If left undetected, PCOS can lead to cancer, heart disease and diabetes. While researchers haven't determined the cause of PCOS, they know it is linked to insulin resistance, which causes obesity. This book contains information about PCOS and a diet to help combat it.
