How Do You Diagnose PCOS? A Fertility Expert Shares Three Common Symptoms
September is PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) month. It’s about awareness. And education. This is about our health and our lives. And it’s about family building too, even if that’s off in the future.
How Do You Diagnose PCOS?
What do you know about PCOS?
Do you know the three criteria that are needed to make an accurate and definite diagnosis?
Do you know that you need to meet two out of the three for a confirmed diagnosis? Are you with a physician or medical practice that really understands PCOS?
Dr. Joshua Hurwitz talks about all of the symptoms that define PCOS.
PCOS can feel scary. The symptoms can be very difficult to live with.
Dr. Hurwitz takes the scare out of the diagnosis. The symptoms are real. The diagnosis is real.
And Dr. Hurwitz’s reassurances are real too.
PCOS is manageable.
Be sure to listen to part one of the PCOS series from last week.
Next week, Dr. Hurwitz will talk about why it’s so important to have a diagnosis. It’s more than just a label. It’s about getting it right so that treatment can be appropriate and effective.
