This week, we’re going to dig into another episode for the Now What Series. And specifically, we’re going to be talking about polycystic ovarian syndrome, or PCOS.
Many of you know that I’ve struggled with PCOS even now, and you probably remember that I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early twenties.
I chose not to take birth control pills because I was lucky enough to be in acupuncture school at the time and I was able to work with my teachers and fellow students to use myself as a guinea pig, and after few months, my cycles were regular. Now, to be clear, my cycles were never ever 28 days. They were always super long, between 35-38 days, but I would always get a cycle instead of going months without one. And I was able to conceive once my husband and I decided it was time for a baby.
But after I had my daughter, I noticed that my symptoms of PCOS were creeping back up. That’s when I realized that PCOS is a condition that I’m going to have to learn how to manage for life. I already knew how to treat PCOS with acupuncture, but I noticed that for certain patients, it wasn’t enough.
So I threw myself into researching PCOS, both for myself and for my patients, and I know so much more now then I did before and today, I’m going to share with you three tips that can quickly make a difference for you.
