If a picture is worth a thousand words, than what is a video worth? Ten thousand words?
This video, The faces of PCOS, expresses so much of what many PCOS patients feel, experience and have to manage on a day to day basis.
Here is the description of the video on YouTube:
Up to 20% of women worldwide live with #PCOS or Polycystic Ovary Syndrome with up to 70% of these affected women unaware! PCOS is an endocrine disorder affecting multiple systems in the body. It is the most common endocrine disorder and the leading cause of infertility in women, If left untreated it can lead to severe health consequences such as heart disease, stroke, cancers and diabetes.
Many thanks to Ashley Levinson, PCOS Educator and Advocate, for allowing us to show this video to you.
