Because symptoms may be attributed to other causes or go unnoticed, PCOS may go undiagnosed.
Women with PCOS typically have irregular or missed periods as a result of not ovulating.
Although some women may develop cysts on their ovaries, many women do not.
Irregular periods, ovarian cysts and excess hair growth are classic clinical PCOS symptoms which directly point to excessive male hormones. However, holistic practitioners follow a more elaborate list when they look for PCOS symptoms. Because they look for ‘the story behind the story’, they consider a wider range of symptoms to diagnose PCOS-like conditions and treat them, often before they become full blown PCOS or PCOD.
If some of these PCOS symptoms seem familiar, please take the time to understand PCOS and if needed book for a check up with health care professional.
