Polycystic Ovary Syndrome: Fighting Back, 3rd Edition, is a lifestyle book written by a patient who has lived with the condition for many years.
The author begins by sharing early symptoms of the disorder as an adolescent and her initial diagnosis in 1987, when a physician assured her that PCOS was simply an “infertility issue.”
A decade later she was shocked to discover that the condition is associated with increased incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and endometrial cancer.
Stunned, she wrote her first edition in an effort to spread information to more women. Now, ten years later, the author offers an update to how she has continued to live with polycystic ovary syndrome, including struggles with infertility and her eventual decision to adopt.
This book offers suggestions for how to live with PCOS without letting the condition control your life. The book is meant to show other women ways in which they can make gradual lifestyle changes. An emphasis is on understanding the great emotional strains that come with the condition.
The book is meant to empower women with PCOS to find individualized strategies for coping. The book is approximately 23,000 words.
