What is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome?

Despite 1 in 10 women having PCOS, only 32% of the lovely ladies surveyed as part of our national #cyclesavvy survey know what PCOS is!

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a condition that affects a woman's hormones, which is often undiagnosed and can cause fertility issues. 

Kate Davies, Fertility Nurse Consultant explains, "Certain hormonal conditions such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) can cause irregular or absent ovulation. This is often characterised by irregular or lack of periods. If a woman notices this, she should speak with her GP to find out the cause of her irregular or absent periods. She may then want to consider monitoring her cycles, either by recording her fertility indicators such as her basal body temperature and cervical secretions to determine when she is fertile or by using a fertility monitor".
