What Are The Symptoms Of PCOS?

Jun 15, 2022 | Health & Wellbeing, Hormones

When diagnosing PCOS it’s important to look at the whole picture. 

​Are you experiencing Irregular periods? Hair loss? Acne? Excessive hair growth? Reduced fertility? 

​In order to diagnose PCOS you must: 

​1. Speak to your GP/GYN to rule out anything else that could be causing excess androgens and insulin resistance.

​2. Use what we call the Rotterdam Criteria – 2/3 of these symptoms suggests PCOS: 
​- Excess androgens (high testosterone + DHEA levels)
​- Ovulatory dysfunction (Irregular Period)
​- Polycystic ovaries (>26+ on both ovaries on an ultrasound).

​To be diagnosed with PCOS, you must present with at least 2 of these features and not everyone with PCOS will have all 3.

​Ironically; you don’t actually need Polycystic Ovaries to be diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) as they are two COMPLETELY different conditions! 

Treatment isn’t the same for each PCOS patient because we are all built differently. However, @allnaturalpharmacy PCOS tincture will treat the root cause of your symptoms. Menstruators have experienced incredible results after consistent use of their tincture. from reduced amount of cysts on their ovaries, a return of regular cycles and a couple of pregnancies.

​While there is no cure, increasingly there is promising research and ways to treat PCOS.​ Let’s increase awareness of this condition that affects 1 in every 10, by knowing and sharing the signs and symptoms.
