The bestselling guide to this increasingly common womens’ health concern.

Although one in ten women in the UK suffer from polycistic ovary syndrome (PCOS), with a myriad of symptoms and the problem that many doctors do not recognise this condition – sufferers often experience an uphill battle for diagnosis and help.

This is the first book to tackle the issue of PCOS. Written by a sufferer, this book offers essential advice on dealing with this gynaecological disorder which can effect everything from weight to infertility and therefore impacts on a woman’s sense of self.

The book will look at how PCOS effects the body, but above all it will offer an essential self help plan for dealing with the condition. PCOS will include a 4-point wellness plan, an A–Z of symptoms and associated remedies and a section on self esteem and rebuilding your life.

As well as the common symptoms of weight gain, excess body hair, acne, breast pain, dizziness, chronic fatigue and hair loss, sufferers from PCOS can experience associated health risks including a higher risk of miscarriage, heart disease, diabetes but infertility is still their largest worry.

Colette Harris has put together a valuable self help regime – which looks at both conventional and complementary medicine. The 4 step plan will focus on diet, exercise, supplementation and relaxation.

Product Description:

PCOS often goes undiagnosed because the symptoms are like PMS. So despite being so common PCOS isn't well known. This is the first book to focus on the condition and is packed with essential advice for women on how to deal with PCOS and the impact it can have on their health, relationships and self image.

Review:

Polycystic ovary syndrome can cause weight gain, excessive body hair, acne, breast pain, depression and mood swings yet because the symptoms are so similar to those of PMS the condition is often left undiagnosed until it is too late.

Colette Harris--a health journalist who herself suffers from the condition--and Dr Adam Carey discuss the symptoms, the impact PCOS can have on sufferers' health, relationships and self esteem, and offer advice on practical ways to deal with the symptoms in a practical, down-to earth way. This book will doubtless bring relief to women who have lived with the effects and who are looking for ways to ease them.

An easy to follow "4 Point Plan to Wellness", and an A-Z of symptoms and how to deal with them using traditional and complementary health care, help point the reader in the right direction, and comfort and support is provided in the form of inspirational real-life stories that prove that there is a way of living life to the full. What this book probably does best is bring the subject of PCOS very much to the fore, lending support to anyone who has either been diagnosed or fears that they may have problems.

Infertility and diabetes are just two of the major problems that undiagnosed or untreated PCOS can cause, and as one in ten women suffer from the condition it seems only right that someone should speak out. Harris and Carey do their jobs well in a sound and accessible book that has been a long time coming.--Susan Harrison
