My Daughter Has PCOS | A Forum for Adults to Help Adolescents
I had a great blog planned for today. Brilliant, even.
Ah, well, it will have to wait.
Because it SNOWED. And I do love the snow.
Instead of my brilliant blog, which will have to wait until tomorrow, here's a reminder about the brand new event that RMACT has created to fill a real need in our community. If you know someone whose child might have PCOS, please pass this on. Many of us have struggled with undiagnosed PCOS, only to discover as adults that there were ways to have managed much more comfortably and safely with the symptoms and the health ramifications.
So, please, pass the information on!
My daughter has PCOS:
Understanding PCOS and How to Manage It
A discussion to help parents or support persons of young women understand PCOS; how and why it is important to manage it; and how best to support their daughter.
Our RMA of CT Adolescent/Young Adult PCOS Program is planning to hold a PCOS Forum for the parents/guardians of adolescents and young adults with PCOS.
Here are a few topics topics our panel will discuss.
- What is PCOS and what are the specific concerns of PCOS in the teenage and 20 something population?
- Why is management of PCOS important for long term physical and mental health?
- What is the latest research available related to diagnosing and managing PCOS?
- How can you best support your daughter—emotionally, medically, and socially?
Join us for an informative panel presentation and Q&A time. Our panel will include our Staff Reproductive Endocrinologist, Psychologist, Physician Assistant, PCOS Nurse, and Nutritionist. Dinner will be provided. RSVP is necessary for attendance.

Me, I'm out to shovel the snow. I love it! After that, my brilliant blog will emerge, ready to publish tomorrow. Join me then, won't you?
