Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome Holistic Care
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is common, affecting 8-12% of Australian women. It is a condition where women have a combination of insulin resistance and elevated androgen levels.
The result is the development of multiple small, hormonally active follicles on each ovary, which perpetuate a vicious cycle of anovulation, irregular periods and peripheral androgen effects like unwanted hair growth, skin pigmentation and acne. Some women with PCOS experience significant scalp hair loss – this can cause considerable stress for women.
