PCOS is a caused by a hormonal imbalance and can result in distressing symptoms such as acne, irregular or absent periods and increased hair growth on the face and body. For some, PCOS will even lead to infertility, hair loss and weight gain. Not all women will experience all of the symptoms and what the sufferer experiences may change over time, which can make the syndrome particularly difficult to deal with.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is newly diagnosed with PCOS. However, having been diagnosed years ago, I have extensively researched the topic and found this book to be a generalized overview. I would've loved it earlier on, but felt that at this point I didn't learn much of anything new.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A more in depth explanation of issues to make the book a bit more insightful would have been wonderful.
